About Mark Holthaus

Advice for New Home Buyers

Your loan and home buying experience is only as good as your loan officer! Be patient, ask questions, and take notes.

Mark is the best!

“Mark recently helped me to purchase my first home. His service is second to none and I would highly recommend him! His communication skills really set him apart and he helped me through every step along the way. Not only is he an excellent communicator, but he also made himself available whenever I had any questions or concerns. If you are in search of a lender then look no further, Mark is the man for the job.”

Great home buying experience.

“We have some previous experience with home-buying so we can definitely tell the night and day difference between working with Mark and previous loan officers. He is straight forward and efficient. Also quick to respond to your questions and helps you every step of the home-buying process. We have had difficulty in the past finding a lender that understands the nature of our job as travel healthcare professionals, given that everyone's financial picture might be different but Mark was able to assist us.”

Great to work with!

“Mark was extremely helpful and, as a first time homebuyer, explained everything well and made it easy to understand. I'm also a single mom and a FT nurse at a busy hospital, so he would send reminders to me via text and/or email so I wouldn't miss any deadlines. There were always open lines of communication between Mark, my real estate agent, and myself and that made it really easy to make sure that everyone was always on the same page. ”

Great experience for a first time home buyer

“I knew nothing about the home purchasing/loan process, and Mark made it very easy for me. It was great having personalized customer service from start to finish which I didn't find at the first lender option I looked into. He made sure each step of the process was very transparent and had my best interest in mind. Definitely would recommend. ”
