From then it was rollercoaster where he made sure that we will be alright and will find a house that we will love forever.

Great service!

“Lucas was very helpful from start to finish with the purchase of our second home. I was relocating for work and right off the bat he mentioned a program that I wasn't aware of that pairs you with local agents both where your selling and where you will be buying. That was extremely helpful and I ended up getting paired with great agents on both ends of the deal! Whenever I had questions Lucas was quick to answer and get me what I needed. Would definitely recommend Lucas and NBKC to others looking to purchase a home.”

Fantastic Experience

“Lucas did a phenomenal job helping us navigate the loan process on our new construction home. When the builder was delayed much more than we could have possibly anticipated, Lucas went to bat for us and helped us avoid substantial rate extension fees. NBKC was also extremely competitive with their rate. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.”

Great Loan Officer!

“Lucas was our loan officer for our new construction home. We could have went through our builders lender but they were not providing the best service. Lucas was extremely helpful and responsive. He listened and worked through a couple of issues we had but nothing major. Above all, we closed on time and with time to spare! Thank you Lucas and the team at NBKC for their help with our home purchase.”

“My wife and I worked with Lucas on a loan for our first home for months. As first time home buyers, we asked a bunch of silly questions but Lucas was always more than happy to help and walk is through the process. He consistently went out of his way to help streamline the process as much as possible to ensure my wife and I had a great home-buying experience.”
