About Wesley McDonald

Advice for New Home Buyers

My best advice to new home buyers is to find a Real Estate Agent and a Loan Officer with the heart of a teacher. When you find a professional with the heart of a teacher, they will naturally take the time to explain the process and walk you through every step to make sure you feel comfortable and educated.

5-Star Service

“Wes helped my wife and I refinance our home. He made the whole process very simple for us. This is the guy you want for your lending needs. When our prior lender botched some of the hand-off to our new lender, Wes went the extra mile to make sure that issues were resolved. This guy understands that mortgages can be confusing and the process of refinancing can be stressful. His professionalism and great attitude made the difference.”

“Wes did an amazing job - he always responded quickly, answered all my questions and was overall a great help in our house search. When we closed on our home he helped us through the process, and the final numbers were very close to what was presented. I would recommend Wes to anyone looking for a home!”

A joy to work with

“We've worked with Wesley and NBKC bank twice now, once on a refinance and most recently on a new home purchase. Both times, Wesley was extremely responsive and accommodating throughout the entire process, and most recently he went above and beyond to ensure our closing happened on time. Additionally, the rates and lending fees offered by NBKC really can't be beat. I would highly recommend working with Wes.”

Seamless and Painless

“Working with Wes to refinance our home was the most seamless experience I have had with a lender. He was very clear about the process/rates/etc., was always responsive to questions, the application and signing process was quick and easy, and we got a great rate. I can honestly say that it was painless and also honestly say I have never before used the word "painless" when describing home loans. Would highly recommend him to anyone and will finance through him again if the need arises!”

Wesley helped us every time we had a question and provided us with clarification and excellent guidance. He was always prompt and professional in his communication. The rates and expenses he offered were bettet than expected. Wesley completely earned our ttust, we could not be happier with the services he provided for us and look forward to working with him again, in the future.”
