About Rhett Bouvia

Advice for New Home Buyers

Get pre-approved not just pre-qualified before you look at homes!


“This is the second time we used Rhett and NBKC to get our mortgage settled. Rhett would answer calls for us day and night and helped walk us through the entire buying process. It didn’t matter what came up, Rhett was there to help and always brought a positive and helpful mindset plus he helped us get the best possible rate we could get. We will definitely be working with Rhett the next time we need anything that has to do with the financing/refinancing industry.”

Best experience when shopping mortgages

“Rhett’s commitment to service is outstanding. He stayed connected with my wife and I for 5+ months, while we moved and shopped for a home. He also answered my 1,000 different hypothetical questions. I shopped multiple lenders and the NBKC rates and fees always came out ahead. Rhett’s a great person to work with. I wish I had found NBKC when we first purchased a home 4 years ago, but Rhett will always be our first call with any home purchase needs. ”

Beyond exceptional service

“Rhett was very responsive- to any and all questions; even questions that should have been answered by my realtor or title company. This was a first time home purchase; and Rhett's integrity and professionalism (in honestly answering questions, giving advice e.g. on tradeoffs in different loan terms, and in offering us the best rate/terms- without needing to show comparable terms from other vendors) really made the whole process a lot easier. I was initially shopping around for loan vendors, but after going through the pre-approval process with a few other vendors/officers - it was clear that the level of service Rhett offered would be hard, if not impossible to beat. Our loan didn't close on time- but that was due to a an oversight on the part of the title company. Would definitely recommend.”

Choose Rhett!

“Rhett was recommended to me by one of his clients. After comparing several lenders, Rhett worked hard to get me the lowest rate. As this was my first home buying experience, I had a lot of questions and Rhett made himself available day and night to answer them. He’s extremely knowledgeable and great at what he does. We were even ready to close early! At closing, both my realtor and the title company representative talked about how great Rhett was to work with. That’s how good he is! Choose Rhett, you won’t regret it!”

Great Rates and Great Service

“Rhett worked with us accommodatingly and quickly. He got us to close on time - we could have even closed early. He was so understanding every step of the way and answered all my questions. I compared lots of lenders and he still gave the best rates. Based on customer service alone even - I would recommend working with Rhett. He’s very nice, knowledgeable, and concise. He answered any and all questions I had (I had a lot) along the way. I had my hands full with a toddler and he always kindly nudged me if anything was time sensitive - which I appreciated. The reminders were kind and helpful. Working with Rhett made buying our first home a pleasant and quick experience.”

You will not find a better lender than Rhett!

“I can't even tell you how incredible our experience was with Rhett! From our first contact with him, he made us feel like we were instantly best friends. He got to know us and our needs and took extremely good care of us the entire time! Rhett was incredibly responsive. Most of the time he responded right away and if not, it was within a few hours. We were constantly being impressed with how great he is. The first home we went to put an offer on, it qualified for a USDA loan, which he said he couldn't do. He said it would be the best option for us so we should find a lender that could do it. (Sending us elsewhere!? Truly an advocate for his clients, even if it means he doesn't get business.) We ended up not getting that house and staying with Rhett. He worked with us to get us into a home we absolutely love! It was our first time buying a home so we had many questions, which he always seemed happy to answer. We are so very grateful for Rhett! He worked hard to get us the best rates and into a fabulous home! Also, his 30 day closing guarantee was just what we needed, AND we closed EARLY!”
