About me

Keith Delatte was raised in Lafayette and has 25+ years of leadership experience in the residential Mortgage Industry. Throughout his career, Keith has helped thousands of borrowers achieve their dream of home ownership and has been recognized as a top producing loan officer. He has served as the President of the Acadiana Mortgage Lenders Association (2016-2017) and President of the Louisiana Mortgage Lenders Association. (2017) Keith is also an active member of the Realtor Association of Acadiana, the Nation Association of Mortgage Brokers and the Acadian Home Builders Association.

I’ve chosen to work for Essential Mortgage because of its proven business model and successful ‘cash back’ program. This program allows me to put money back into the pockets of my clients at closing in the form of lender credits. This is a substantial savings which I can provide through Essential Mortgage that other lenders typically don’t offer.

I truly enjoy simplifying the lending complexities my clients face and locating an ideal product that meets their unique needs. It’s all about attention to detail and staying current with the loan products themselves. Most importantly, it’s about providing timely, direct communications to my clients that continuously distinguishes me from other lenders.

If you are considering a home loan, it would be my privilege to assist you in finding the best product that meets your needs. I know you will be pleased with the many options and favorable terms offered.

Keith and his wife, Jean Claire Hebert, have been married since 1978 and have two children and five delightful grandchildren. Keith has been an active leader in the Boy Scouts of America for 25 years in leadership roles. He enjoys a variety of sports and outdoor activities, including tennis, triathlons, Taekwondo, water and snow skiing.
