About Mike Yarbrough

Advice for New Home Buyers

Interview 2-3 lenders before you start shopping and don’t feel you must use the lender a realtor recommends.

Great Service, Communication, & Knowledge

“I've had the pleasure of refinancing twice with Mike. Very friendly, personable, and answered all my questions - and trust me, I asked a lot. The second time, he contacted me advising rates were at a record low, which I had no clue. If he didn't reach out, my mortgage would be 15% higher than what it's now. Highly recommend Mike, great person in general and a great professional to work with.”

Great communication & a pleasant experience

“When we were refinancing, I requested information from three different lenders to compare rates and costs. Mike helped me understand the refinancing process and the costs involved. He patiently fielded my questions and uncertainty as I looked at various offers. I especially appreciated his prompt replies to my emails, and closing costs with NBKC were significantly lower. There are a lot of players involved in refinancing, but Mike made it seem easy and kept me well informed. Our online closing was much simpler than past in-person closings. It was a pleasure to work with Mike.”

Mike Yarbrough was fantastic!

“Mike Yarbrough was out loan officer and he was fantastic! Any qualms/concerns I had about working with a non-local loan officer (I live in Albuquerque) were quickly put to bed by Mikes responsiveness, availability, promptness, professionalism, and his guiding my wife and I through process! This was our first home purchase and Mike was there to help ensure the things went smoothly, and on time, such that, come closing day, (1) we’re well informed, (2) there were no surprises, so we could sign with confidence. I highly recommend Mike specifically for anyone looking for a mortgage lender!”
