About Michael

If you remember one thing about me, remember this: Hunstad Makes Loans.

With over 30 years of mortgage lending experience, my reputation speaks for itself. Quite simply, I make loans happen. I work hard to find you the best mortgage to make your dream of homeownership a reality.

In addition to purchase loans, I offer refinance and renovation programs. Whatever your home financing needs are, I provide outstanding customer service combined with extensive product knowledge to give you the superior mortgage experience you deserve.

The Central Coast is my home and my community. I’m a lifelong resident, deeply involved in serving our beautiful region through Rotary International, the Knights of Columbus, and my church. I love to play golf and enjoy the camaraderie of a good round, or even a not-so-good round!
