About David Vaughan

Advice for New Home Buyers

For any homebuyer I would say to take the time to get fully preapproved ensuring a lender has reviewed your income, assets and credit profile before you begin your home shopping journey. Understand your loan program and what is needed for loan approval. Finally, you should feel comfortable in asking your loan officer anything and everything when it comes to buying a home.

David made it so easy

“My husband and I had just begun the process of buying our home when we had a family medical emergency come up. We needed someone to step in and keep the ball rolling for us while our attention was divided, and David was just that guy. After discussing our situation, David took the reigns and truly made our home buying experience smooth and easy. He told us exactly what he needed from us and took care of all the details. David is incredibly knowledgeable and efficient. Nothing slipped through the cracks and he kept us informed about what part of the process our loan was in along the way. I would absolutely work with David Vaughan again.”

Best rate, great communication, smooth process!

“David was the ideal mortgage officer. He was always quick, clear, responsive, and his first offer was the best we got from anybody - both for rates and costs! When we went through a family crisis in the middle of our home purchase, he helped shepherd our transaction through to the end. To lift the stress of a new mortgage off our shoulders was no easy feat, but he made it easy and gave us a terrific loan. We felt very comfortable working with David, and I would recommend him to ANYBODY!”

“First home time buyer here and WOW! David made the home buying experience so easy. My fiance and I were starting off with a different lender, we weren't happy with the rates and started shopping around. We saw great reviews about NBKC on Nerdwallet and decided to apply. David reached out within the hour and was able to get us options within a day. NBKC rates were the most competitive we received as the rates we're inching close to 5% at the time. While we were still deciding on a lender, David maintained consistent communication without being too overbearing, which is a difficult line to walk. What I appreciated the most about David was his honesty and transparency about the process. When buying a house, you want to make sure you trust the team you're working with, and I have the most utmost respect and trust for him. A lot of people around us and even online said that closing typically takes 45+ days, and David said he could do it in 30. We were able to close in 29 days! If you need a reliable lender, please do yourself a favor and go with David.”

Very helpful, professional and knowledgeable

“I found NBKC from NerdWallet, filed an online application for mortgage pre-approval. David reached out to me the following day asking for all the required documents. Got my pre-approval on the vary next of uploading my required documents. Getting a pre-approval in 24 hours was extremely helpful in the early stage of the house hunt. The pre-approval also included a cost breakdown - my upfront cost (closing cost) and monthly payment which were very insightful from a financial perspective. He also provided cost breakdown for different scenarios - 3%, 5%, 10% downpayment, with or without points, etc. He kept me updated during the entire period of mortgage application till closing. He responded to any of my questions right away. I received the lowest interest rate from him considering my credit standing. He is very diligent, professional, and responsive. My mortgage was ready prior to closing and I had no issue closing on time. I highly recommend him.”

David helped us figure out what type of loan was best for us and even made us a spread sheet to show which debts we should focus on, along with how much we would save in monthly payments/interest. Definitely would work with David again!”
