About David

We are pleased to welcome David Dickson, Senior Loan Officer, to the Embrace Home Loans family.  As the owner and president of McLean Financial Mortgage Corporation for 16 years, David made it his mission to make the mortgage loan process easy and transparent for his clients.  Many of clients came to him as referrals, after being left frustrated with the application process.  Through education, communication and respect, David built a successful business, and we are confident that his expertise and care will serve you well, whether you’re looking to purchase a new home, refinance an existing mortgage, or facing the daunting and exciting task of purchasing your first home.

David grew up in Northern Virginia and is a graduate of Virginia Tech, where he earned his degree in Business and Political Science.  Now making his home in Parrish, FL with his wife Julie, David continues to be an active member of his community.  As a member of the Florida Association of Mortgage Professionals and of the Realtors Association of Sarasota and Manatee Counties, David stays up to date on all of the current developments and trends in the real estate industry to better serve his clients.  As a member of the Hernando DeSoto Historical Society, he plays an active role in organizing large fundraising events, notably the DeSoto Heritage Festival, one of the largest events held in Manatee County.  He also serves on the Board of the Mote Marine Laboratory, a private, non-profit marine research laboratory dedicated to the conservation and sustainable use of our oceans through research and education.  When not working to save our oceans, David can often be found in them.  He is an avid diver, not content to simply enjoy it himself; he also found a way to help people through this leisurely pursuit by becoming certified as a Rescue Scuba Diver.

We met David trough Mike Sink of Maronda Homes. In our minds we didn't qualify to buy a home at that time. Well David thought otherwise. He got us preapproved very quickly. During time that our home was being built, David communicated to us clear directions to take, gave us great advise and got us all the way to closing. He is the man. Thanks David. If you need a mortgage, do yourself a favor and call him.
