Why McGowin-King?

We believe we’re different from many Alabama mortgage companies. Here’s why:

  • Longevity. Travis McGowin and Jim King opened McGowin-King in 1998. Together, Jim and Travis have more than 80 years in the mortgage business in Alabama. Unlike many brokers who started in the business during the housing boom of 2004-2006, McGowin-King has been in the industry through booms and busts, always focused on long-term relationships and the best possible solutions for our customers. McGowin-King has always maintained an AAA rating with the Better Business Bureau.
  • Forward and Reverse mortgages. Jim King helped pioneer the reverse mortgage business in Alabama in 1998. Since then the reverse side of the business has grown, and today McGowin-King is the only independent broker in Alabama offering forward and reverse products.
  • Community involvement. We believe local businesses have a responsibility to give back to their communities. That’s why, since our founding in 1998, we’ve donated a portion of every loan we’ve made to the local Habitat for Humanity chapter. To find out more about Habitat for Humanity, click here.
  • Habitat for Humanity of Greater BirminghamRepeat business. We want to be our clients’ mortgage consultants for life. That’s why such a high percentage of our clients are repeat customers, and it’s why we stay in touch with the people we do business with for the long haul. We believe when you exceed expectations and stay in touch, you build a true relationship rather than just a transaction.
