We are Vaster

A full integrated mortgage company, powered by local market experts


Founded in 2017 by South Florida’s biggest real estate firms

Vaster began as a joint venture between two of South Florida’s biggest real estate firms — Fortune International Group and The Related Group. We started as a residential private lender — closing on more than $150,000,000 in loans in the first two years in business. Since then, we’ve expanded our loan product offering to continue help more people build wealth through real estate.

“Vaster has grown into a more sophisticated company with the capabilities to cater to the needs of any buyer.”

— Edgardo Defortuna
