About Us At USA Mortgage

USA Mortgage is a five star direct mortgage lender with no lender overlays on government and conventional loans. Our CEO/President Doug Schukar and our COO/Executive Vice President Linda Pring founded USA Mortgage, a division of DAS Acquistion Company NMLS 227262 in 2001.

  • We are the largest five star direct mortgage lender in the state of Missouri
  • The company started with less than 50 employees and now has 1,000 licensed and support personnel and has been growing from day one
  • The reason why USA Mortgage is so successful is due to CEO Doug Shukar and COO Linda Pring being hands on
  • Most national larger mortgage companies like USA Mortgage does not have the CEO or COO mingle with loan officers and support staff
  • Not here. Every Loan Officer that is hired at USA Mortgage
  • Linda will review their profile and once on boarded, Linda contacts Loan Officers and support staff directl
  • Linda and Doug know every mortgage application that USA processes and closes
  • Most mortgage borrowers, realtors, and loan officers do not know that a five star mortgage company like USA Mortgage exists

Our borrowers are not the only folks who appreciate Doug Shukar’s and Linda Pring’s leadership in making  USA Mortgage the top mortgage company in the plant but so do all of our mortgage loan originators. The average loan officer at USA Mortgage has been with the company for 9 years. That says a lot. Doug and Linda are taking the successful business model they have created in Missouri and expanding it nationwide. Stay Tuned!!!
