SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 12, 2007 -- LEI Financial, one of the fastest growing mortgage and financial services providers in the United States, is now licensed to provide a wide range of mortgage products -- and financial freedom -- to people in Maryland. Maryland has become the 19th state where LEI's products are sold.

"We're thrilled to be able to bring our unique products and approach to mortgages, real estate, and personal finance to the people in Maryland," said LEI Chief Executive Officer Bill Lyons. "The Old Line State's economy has been expanding at a favorable rate, despite the slight downturn in the housing market. But this is a favorable market to do business in, since the housing momentum has shifted from a seller's to a buyer's market, meaning a lot of people are going to need loans very soon."

In addition to traditional mortgages, LEI specializes in home loans that let families take advantage of the equity in their homes to help build their wealth. By cashing out some of that equity and investing it, homeowners can turn wealth that would have been sitting in a house and doing nothing into an important piece of their financial health. This "Velocity of Money" approach gives people the leverage to have their money perform multiple jobs at the same time. LEI's Equity Advantage, Equity Management, Wealth Builder, and Credit Resolution loans also allow people the freedom of making very small monthly payments.
