About Your Instructor:

Andy Thaw is the most experienced FHA 203 (k) trainer in the country, and he’s had over thirty 33 years of experience backing his reputation.

We are very happy to announce that Andy is returning to Capstone Institute as a Senior Visiting Instructor. He is the author of your training materials and your instructor.

Andy Thaw has worked in the Mortgage Banking Industry for over 32 years and has worked mainly in loan origination and business development. For much of his career, his primary focus has been working with FHA and FHA 203k lending, and is widely considered an industry leader in 203k financing for the last 22 years.

With a previous background in public education, Andy had been introduced to the Capstone Institute and became the author of Capstone’s original and widely used book “Understanding 203k Financing.”

Since that time he has worked as an industry educator with Capstone where he and Kathy Lewis, the owner of Capstone, have formed a wonderful long‐time relationship.

He has worked extensively throughout his career as an industry partner with the N.Y. HUD office and has written
numerous industry publications and “best practice” curriculum.

Andy has been a featured FHA speaker and trainer at countless industry events around the country. He is currently Vice President of Renovation Lending for Mid Island Mortgage Bankers, an originating seller/servicer for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Ginnie Mae.

His main focus is on the development of Renovation Lending through Retail and Wholesale channels in 19 states.

One of the primary reasons for his success as a  203 (k) trainer is his ability to explain away the confusion in originating and processing these loans. 

Once Andy shares how to do it the easy way, you’ll be thinking about why you didn’t do this sooner.

Yes, you’ll have to make some investment of your time to learn the details, but after closing your first few loans you’ll be happy to tell your competition that it was very difficult and it was exhausting to get the loan to close. 

When they ask you again you can tell them the same story, but just don’t let them see you depositing your commission check.



We’re so sure you’ll be satisfied with Andy’s materials and presentation,
we back his training 100%
