The Doorway Story

At Doorway, we believe opportunity knocks at every door. In 1987, our founder Kirk Hankla opened our first branch in Long Beach, California. Since then, we have helped tens of thousands of diverse borrowers from different backgrounds, in various life stages, and have unique financial situations. Our mission is to help them capture a share of the American dream in neighborhoods from Honolulu, Hawaii, to Hialeah, Florida.

Doorway has become a national brand across the United States but has remained a high-touch, neighborhood lender for homebuyers who seek mortgage expertise from those in their area. Our people live, work, and lead in the communities we serve, and our clients are like family. We do what we do with passion, professionalism, and high integrity and do not hesitate to go the extra mile for our clients. After decades of housing and market changes, our people and our clients inspire us to stay true to our purpose.
