About Laura Whisner

Advice for New Home Buyers

Be patient, your home is out there. You will know it when you see it. Find a lender and an agent you have a connection with and listens to what you need.

Highly recommend (and I have) Laura Whisner

“Found Laura through the Costco program. We weren't sure about using Costco, but it was great since it connected us to Laura. She made the refinance process so easy and we closed much quicker than what other lenders had said. Laura was always just an email (our preferred method) away and she was prompt in responding. I can't emphasis enough how easy the process was; this was the easiest mortgage financing deal we have been through.”

The best!

“We were new to the refinance process, but Laura made everything smooth and stress-free. She was always quick to respond to my emails, even with the 5-6 hour time difference.”

“I did not know much about NBKC when selecting a mortgage company but after the completing the mortgage process i was happy i did. I found them through the Costco mortgage program and they appeared to get good reviews. I was looking for a mortgage company that was more attentive to the customer than the big bank lenders but also cost effective. A lender that was responsive, knowledgeable, and diligent about the mortgage process. NBKC was was all of that and more. I am happy with the choice i made. I was nervous on locking in a good rate as interest rates were going up and at the time i didn't have a solid close date. Laura was very helpful and we locked in the rate I wanted. This was a huge move as now interest rates are much higher. The only negative thing I can say is that there was a slight hesitation if they could close on time. I knew they were very busy but they worked it out and we closed on time. The loan originator, Laura Whisner, was very easy to work with. She was very knowledgable and responsive when providing support throughout the mortgage process until closing.”

“I wanted to put a review out for Laura Whisner but hesitated because I was having trouble finding the right adjectives to use to describe what a stellar human being and Loan Officer for NBKC Bank Laura Whisner continues to be. I have now had the opportunity to work with Laura two times and both times with her at the helm the refinance process was effortless. Her knowledge of the process, her efforts to work with you to find the best possible loan for your circumstances is amazing. She has the ability to make you feel totally comfortable with the process between gathering all the required documentation, to getting ready to sign your life over to a Bank for hundreds of thousands of dollars. So not only is she professional and knowledgeable, she is friendly and puts you at ease. She makes herself available for you to contact her with any questions you have during the process or if you want to make any changes. Its like NBKC Bank has the perfect person and loan officer in Laura Whisner.”

Super easy to work with for first-time buyer

I was able to find a perfect home for my family and Laura made sure that the financing and closing processes came together seamlessly. Definitely recommend for anyone looking to buy or refinance!”

Absolutely Fantastic!

“Fantastic experience during a normally stressful time. I have used Laura for original purchase loans and for refinances in California but when I moved to Colorado to build a new house I went with a local lender thinking the process of working with my local Real Estate Agent and knowledge of the local market would be an advantage. Boy was I wrong. Let's just say there is no substitute for hard work, qualified people skills and professionalism. I called Laura back for help with my purchase in Colorado and won't make that mistake again. She significantly beat the rate I was previously quoted and more importantly managed a smooth and quick process all the way to close. Thank you Laura!”

Would definitely work with her again.

“We initially were working with another lender who decided not to fund us - thirty days prior to closing. Laura stepped in and had us approved and ready for closing in less than two weeks. Our new build was eventually delayed and again we had to start over with the funding. Laura made sure it was all done. She was a pleasure to work with and she was very patient, professional and understanding. We would highly recommend Laura. Thank you Laura!”
