“Alex is so reliable and made the entire process so easy. Alex responded to all my questions within minutes every time. He got me such a low rate other banks couldn’t believe it! I’ve dealt with other loan officers in the past and Alex beats them all. He mad the VA process so simple and explained everything to me. I felt very confident with Alex and his team. If you’re lucky enough to match with Alex you’re in great hands. Because of Alex I will only work with NBKC for future home loans. 10/5 star experience. ”

“Alex showed extremely good customer service, knowledge of the lending system, and just all around smarts and kindness. He responded when he said he would, was proactive in helping us save dollars, and impressed me with how smoothly our loan process went. ”

“Alex Hodson is a very nice loan officer. He is very quick to respond to emails and provide clarifications to any doubts regarding the loan process, charges, and next steps without any irritation, even if I called him multiple times. It's been a great experience from the beginning to the end of my loan process. Loan closure was also done on time.”

“Alex was a joy to work with. He explained everything about the entire process as it was happening. I am not a first time buyer but he made the entire process so easy. I would recommend him 1000 times over to anyone seeking to purchase or refi. ”

“Alex was quick to respond to my original request for a quote, and remained very responsive throughout the entire process, through our closing date. Any time I asked a question about the process, Alex either knew the answer or directed me to the people that did. He worked to get us the best possible rate, and the fees required were reasonable. Overall an excellent experience, would highly recommend.”

“Alex Hodson is the reason we decided to choose nbkc bank for our first home purchase. We couldn't have asked for a more efficient and personable loan officer. It was our first time purchasing a home, so we had tons of questions. Alex was always available to answer our questions and walk us through each step. He even gave me some pointers for submitting an offer, such as writing a personal letter; and I'm pretty sure that is why our offer was accepted. Alex even made himself available to the sellers during his personal time off because they contacted him to confirm some details before accepting our offer. I really do think God sent him to us because the entire process was organized and there were no unexpected surprises. Alex and his team definitely had our backs and hooked it up with a competitive interest rate and much more. Closing day was very smooth and everything was done on time. Based on my experience, I highly recommend working with nbkc bank, especially Alex Hodson!”

“Alex helped get us a low rate and close on time! We purchased a newly constructed home and wanted to take advantage of a dip in the interest rate market. The builder's preferred lender not flexible in re-negotiating our loan terms so we contacted Alex. We were cautioned to avoid an online bank that "most likely is not familiar with new construction home loans" and we risk "them delaying your closing and the builder charging you late fees." I am so glad I didn't fall for these scare tactics because we ended up saving over $200 a month and the process was so smooth. I would recommend NBKC bank and Alex to anyone looking for a competitive interest rate and excellent customer service.”

“Alex was always on the ball throughout the entire purchasing process, always quick to respond to any questions. Locked us into a much lower rate and closing cost than the other five lenders I talked to. Overall a great experience!”
—Michael Minges from from Waukesha, WI
“As someone who has always wondered about purchasing a house but never haven taken that leap due to a variety of reasons. I finally decided to talk to multiple lenders and only one actually connected with me on a human level. When working with Alex, it didn’t feel like work. He walked me through everything multiple times and constantly answered all of my questions with haste and in a real way (no bs). Plain and simple, if I ever purchase again or know someone who will; I will 100% percent make sure they talk to Alex first. Mahalo my friend.”

“From the outset, Alex was focused on getting me the best deal. At every turn he made suggestions (that my previous lender didn’t make) in order to save me money. By the time the deal closed, he’d saved me >$50K on the whole, and made it possible for me to be able to buy the home! Without the savings, the appraisal would have been under the loan value by $25K and we’d not have had a deal. He educated me on the details of the process (never communicated by the builder’s mortgage company) which imbued a tremendous amount of confidence in him and his team. Alex exuded competence from start to finish! I’ll be calling him when rates are suitable for refinancing!”

I love tools. My father was an auto mechanic growing up. He was always in the garage fixing cars and I loved helping. There’s a tool for just about anything whether it is an actual object or even just an extra set of hands.

I worked for an irrigation company in Nashville before moving to Kansas City. It was by far the most interesting job and I even got to meet a few country music stars on a day to day basis. My favorite client was Dierks Bentley.
