Humboldt Mortgage Company started in Eureka, CA in 1964 at the same location it currently resides – the Hospital District. We were started by a group of local business people that wanted to bring quality financing to this great community. One of those people was William “Bill” Greenwood, who eventually bought out his partners. Bill ran the business for years, along with Greenwood Realty.
In 1985, Robert J Lawton came aboard as manager. He comes from a general building contractor background and did real estate development of buying and fixing, along with buying land to build new structures which allows a business relationship that helped many. Upon Bill’s demise, Bob bought the business and continues to provide quality financing.
