Derek was great from beginning to end. He makes sure to stay in contact with you the entire time. As a first time home buyer this was exceptionally important. The experience was excellent from beginning to end.

Georgetown, TX

Derek did a wonderful job on a VA loan, he was responsive, attentive towards both the client and me as the agent and I couldn't be happier. He got my client a fantastic rate, low closing costs and the deal went incredibly smoothly. I will be referring customers to Derek and know that they were in good hands.

Tinley Park, IL

Derek was wonderful and went above and beyond for us. We are self employed and the underwriter wanted lots of extra things and hoops to jump through and Derek helped us through every step. Use Derek! He’s great!

Gallatin, TN

As a first time home buyer, the whole mortgage process seemed a bit intimidating; but Derek did a great job of making sure I understood everything involved along the way. Derek did extra work to much sure things were as simple as possible on my end. He was very patient and communicated through the whole process.

Atchison, KS

Derek was nothing short of AMAZING to work with!! He kept our entire real estate team in the loop throughout the loan process and it was nice not to have to reach to and ask him for updates. He's just great at what he does!

Knoxville, TN

We loved working with Derek. This was our first time buying a house and Derek made getting a VA loan a breeze. At closing we were told most don't have great things to say about their lenders, but we had nothing but praises for Derek! He answered all our questions, answered my calls, and helped us stay on track to make sure we closed on schedule. I highly recommend Derek and will definitely use him again.

Katy, TX

From beginning to end, Derek did a wonderful job walking us through the loan process and helping us understand what we needed to do. There were no surprises or issues with our loan. If I ever need a loan again, I know who to look up.

Portland, OR

Derek was very responsive throughout the transaction and stayed in communication with us the entire way!

Salem, OR

Derek was extremely responsive and knowledgeable! We had a quick turn around on an investment property we purchased and Derek turned it around in under 30 days! If I needed anything, he let me know right away. Derek was AWESOME!!!

Lenexa, KS

I truly appreciated working with Derek. He was a consummate professional! Always timely with his communication and requests from both myself and my client. As a first time home buyer Derek did a great job working in tandem with me helping her understanding the process and ensuring she knew we had her best interest at heart.

Columbia, MO

Derek was amazing from the start! He took the time to really figure out what was best for my scenario. He put together a structured plan to get my mortgage paid off and save interest over the life of the loan. He had the best rate available and was able to even pay some of my closing costs. I have already referred a couple members of my friends and family to him.
