    Owner/President

    1st Capitol Mortgage, Inc. is a licensed Mortgage Brokerage in DE, MD and VA. We have been in business at the same location since 1996.

    As other brokerages have had to close their doors, 1st Capitol has continued to do well because of our referral based business model.

    By focusing on our clients' best interest we have maintained a consistent trust level that has earned us much good fortune.

    We offer all mortgage products including Conventional, FHA, VA and USDA. And it would be our great privilege to work with you.

    My name is Larry Knopf. I am the President of 1st Capitol Mortgage, Inc. I have been in the mortgage business since 1993. I am a native Delawarean, growing up in Dover. I graduated from Dover High School in 1975 and have many great memories from those years.

    I furthered my education with a Business Degree from Salisbury State University and graduated in 1979. Going to Salisbury was one of most amazing and important experiences of my life. I have many good friends from college and miss it to this day.


    In 2010 my wife and I will celebrate our 20th anniversary. We have been blessed with two beautiful, healthy children and we make our home in Wyoming, DE, just a few miles outside of Dover.
