Intercoastal Mortgage, LLC, one of the largest independently owned residential mortgage lending operations in the Mid-Atlantic Region, has named Steve Trautwein, Director of Military Lending.
Trautwein, based in Northern Virginia, is a Brown University graduate with more than 35 years’ experience in the financial services industry. He will continue to originate loans and bring Intercoastal Mortgage, LLC added focus on military lending.
After graduating from Brown in 1984 with degrees in Economics and Organizational Behavior and Management, Steve Trautwein received his SIFMA certification at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business. He has had extensive experience as both a Wealth Management Advisor and a Mortgage Advisor. His career has included work for Kidder Peabody, Shearson Lehman Hutton (now Morgan Stanley), Wheat First Butcher Singer (now Wells Fargo), FBR Capital Markets, PNC Bank, Churchill Mortgage and McLean Mortgage.
Trautwein stated, “I am humbled and truly inspired by the new challenge with which Intercoastal Mortgage has entrusted me. CEO Ed Dean, President Pete Cameron and our entire executive leadership team have long been dedicated to ‘serving those who serve.’ Mortgage financing for military permanent change of station moves, ‘PCS’ for short, brings unique challenges. Just as you would not send a commercial pilot with no military training into combat flying an F-22 Raptor, our nation’s veterans need more mission-specific expertise than that which a generalist lender can offer. With inventories remaining low throughout 2024, we must coach our clients and their realtors how to win contracts with VA loans in multi-offer situations.”
President Pete Cameron added, “Each year, the six branches of the U.S. Military issue orders many of their best and brightest to ‘PCS’ to the National Capital Region. Our leadership team is committed to making certain we are the ideal firm from which top loan officers can serve the community that protects us, our families, and our freedoms every day.
“This includes achieving the highest level of military lending expertise in processing, underwriting, and capital markets. PCS timelines are tight. We need to be able to close loans that many other firms cannot, do it quickly, and at the most competitive interest rates.”
Steve Trautwein’s website www.PCStoDC.com states, “BAH (Base Allowance for Housing) is much more than just an allowance for ‘shelter’. It is an opportunity for you to build significant wealth in residential real estate while serving our country.” Please visit for more information.
