In a very short time, he became one of the top Loan Officers specializing in refinances for both rate and term and debt consolidation. He has risen to a Sales Manager Position, overseeing a small team of loan officers while continuing to help consumers meet their mortgage refinancing needs. He is very well versed in all aspects of Conventional, FHA, VA and USDA loan programs. He has passed the National Mortgage Licensing Exam as well as being individually licensed in Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and Washington, DC. Steve has completed all continuing education courses that are required as part of his licensing.
Steve's specialty is always communicating with his borrowers so they understand and are comfortable with every step in the lending process. He believes that it is important to build a relationship for life with all his borrowers.
When not spending time with his wife and son, Steve is very involved with his church and community. He loves to spend time with family and friends during his off time.

I can only give high marks to Sales Manager, Steve Hochrein, at the Columbia, MD branch for the superior service I received when I refinanced my home. Steve supported me every step through the process from bank statements, documentation of monthly bills and longevity of retirement benefits. I could count on him for suggestions to speed up the process. He was most helpful in securing my loan for me. Please talk to Steve. He is "the best" before you sign anything. Steve deserves five stars for his excellent service, knowledge, being informative, professional and efficient. I would recommend Steve, with New Penn Financial to my friends and family. Steve, "It was a pleasure to work with you." I could only wish everyone I do business with treated me like you and your associate, Paula, did. Thank you,
I wanted to take a minute to thank you and the entire team at New Penn Financial for the professionalism and courtesy shown to Kathy and myself in getting our new mortgage approved and closed in an expeditious manner. At first, I was skeptical on doing a transaction such as this one, relying basically on phone calls, email, and the Internet, but, I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks. I will certainly keep you and New Penn in mind if anyone is looking to refinance or needs to get a mortgage for an original purchase. Feel free to contact me if anyone would like to talk with someone who recently closed on a mortgage through you. Best of success to you and the team at New Penn.
Working with New Penn Financial and Steve Hochrein was a fabulous experience! As a first-time home buyer, there were a lot of questions I had about the process of buying a home and how everything works. At the beginning, I knew very little! Steve was extremely knowledgeable and patient to explain all the details. This allowed my wife and I to make appropriate decisions for our situation. Steve was also incredibly responsive — both by phone and email — to communicate all the relevant information during the buying process. We are now homeowners and couldn’t be happier! We highly recommend New Penn Financial and Steve Hochrein to anyone looking to buy!
