Advice for New Home Buyers
Don’t cut corners on your pre-approval. Mistakes at that stage can cost you time and money. Your loan officer and your realtor work for YOU. Don’t hesitate to fire them and move on if they aren’t treating you like a priority. Enjoy the process!
“Once again, NBKC and Beau Langdon made the process of refinancing painless. This led to a significant decrease in our monthly mortgage payment amount. Thanks again, Beau and NBKC.”

“Beau was very quick and responsive throughout the process including several changes on the loan details. My loan closed on time with no issues. I will definitely reach out to Beau again if I need another mortgage.”
—Alisa27 from from Douglasville, GA

“I just closed on my 2nd refi with Beau Langdon and NBKC. He was very professional and thorough. His response to calls and emails was prompt. He made the process easy. I would recommend Beau and NBKC to everyone.”
—D Saunders from from Ocala, FL
“I had used NBKC several times in the past. The loan originator I always used was no longer there so I worked with Beau. He was awesome and the process went smoothly. He was determined to get our refi approved and he really came through for us as applications have become more strict since the mess in 2009.”

“I wanted to take a moment to express my appreciation for my Loan Originator, Beau Langdon. Beau did an exceptional job at guiding me through the loan process. He made me feel confident and fully supported while I applied for my first mortgage. I originally found NBKC through Google and Nerd Wallet. When I read the online reviews, I knew that NBKC would be a top contender for my VA loan. When I was nearly ready to apply, I went through the beginnings of the loan application to identify the documents and information needed. I didn’t submit the application and planned to return to it when I had all of the required information. Within fifteen minutes of closing out of my browser, I received a text message, an email, and a phone call from Beau thanking me for considering NBKC and to contact him with any questions. I returned his email with, “wow, you guys are fast” and explained that I would be ready to complete the application within a few days time, along with what I was hoping to achieve, and the timeframe that I wanted to close. He restated that he would be able to answer any questions and was looking forward to working with me. My first impression with Beau was that of complete comfort and trust. I’m a first time home buyer, I only know so much, and one can only do so much googling! Not all information about lending, especially VA loans, is available online. Throughout the entire process, Beau took the time to answer my questions. He regularly checked-in and provided me with real-time updates. On several occasions, I recall sending Beau emails on a weekend or at an odd time. Within the hour, I had a response to my question and an acknowledgment to my email submissions. He also was a huge advocate for me when it came to misinformation communicated to me by my realtor. He reached out to the seller’s realtor when my own was slacking in his duties. My realtor was hired to take me through the buying process, but it was Beau who not only identified my realtor’s errors, but also explained concepts, terms, and processes that were part of my realtor’s responsibilities. The mortgage process is stressful enough, however, Beau made it as smooth and painless as possible. I could literally provide at least ten more examples of how Beau impressed me with his exceptional customer service skills, but it would be shorter to just say that he has a customer for life, and I will refer anyone looking to start the mortgage process to Beau. I cannot say enough wonderful things about him and I could not have asked for a better Loan Originator. NBKC HAS a one-of-a-kind person on their team. -One Very Happy Customer, Amber”
—Amber N from from Cheyenne, WY
“What a pleasure it was to work with “Beau” always able to answer any questions we had. Very professional and quick to reply with our questions. Helpful with every step in the process. I couldn’t have asked for anybody better. My sister did refi and also appreciate Beau’s expertise. I will refer others as well.”
—Richard Cable from from Hurricane, UT
“I had kind of a messy situation with starting a new job, mortgage forebearance through COVID but Beau stuck with it and guided me through the process. He made the whole ordeal low stress while getting me a much improved interest rate. I would recommend Beau Langdon and NBKC to anyone.”
—Melissa W. from from Overland Park, KS
“Loan closed as planned. NBKC handled it like most lenders would. They use sales tactics for a refi as “you won’t make your next months payment and have your escrow refunded within 14 days”. My mortgage was on autopay and NBKC won’t allow you to cancel the autopay within 14 days of the withdrawal. 24 days later, and I haven’t seen the +3k refund. Reach out to lender, and it’s “call this department, you can find out quicker than me”. Frustrating. It makes you feel like “we got our money, figure your stuff out on your own”. Other than that, the process was easy.”
