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.
“NBKC had competitive rates! David helped to make sure that we not only got an accepted offer but closed on time! Thanks to David for doing a great job”

“David was so helpful and patient as my home search changed a few times during the process. Without a beat David would change directions and made sure I had what I need to purchase a home for my family. I would definitely work with David again in the future.”

“Been working with David for the last few years on all our refinancing needs. Always on time. Very knowledgeable loan officer. Proven to be the best. Never let us down. Highly recommended!”

“David Vaughan made the mortgage application and purchasing process run very smoothly with five-star communication all the way through! I would definitely recommend him and NBKC.”
—Courtney J. from from Chattanooga, TN
“David is an incredible lender, always going above and beyond and making my family and I feel valued as a customer, but more importantly well informed as a buyer. I have purchased 3 homes over the years and I have used David every time and again for a refinancing. From my first-time homebuying experience, David was the only person willing to let me ask all the "dumb" questions so that I truly understood what every number and option meant, and how that would affect my purchasing power and mortgage payments. Throughout the process I never felt like I wasn't a priority for David, or that I couldn't email or call him and expect to either get him immediately, or get a response fast. I recommend David to everyone I can because there are too many horror stories out there to risk not going with the best!”
—Jason from from Atlanta, GA
“David was great to work with and very personable, he is knowledgeable and insightful, he did a great job keeping the home loan process moving forward and communicating / coordinating with all parties involved, and he was always easy to get a hold of.”
—ZechariahDaetwiler from from Kansas City, MO
“It has been a pleasure working with David Vaughan! As first time home buyers, we had no clue what to expect during this process - fortunately we had David on our side. David took his time to teach us everything about the home buying experience. His expertise and knowledge made us feel very confident that he had our best interest in mind. During the closing period, David ensured we understood all the documentation and would often check in with us to make sure all of our questions were answered. After we closed on our house, David personally dropped of a house warming gift; which was super nice of him! It also allowed us an opportunity to chat and personally thank him for everything he has done for us. We look forward to continuing to work with David and are extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to work with him. Thank you, David. You’re a rockstar!! Sincerely, DF & CF”
—Drew Flores from from Overland Park, KS
“David was fantastic during my closing process. Always available and willing and open to share feedback and answer questions. We even closed a week early in our case. Highly recommend David. Thank you!”
—Solomon Oghabir from from Washington, DC
“My wife and I had an exceptional first time homebuyer’s experience thanks to David. He made what could have been an overwhelming process so easy for us. David communicated with us throughout the entire process and was always able to answer any questions we had. Quick responses to calls and emails, and a thorough knowledge of VA Loan! We highly recommend David. ”
—Ryan G from from East Northport, NY
“We were looking to refinance our mortgage and consolidate our debt. 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!”

I love math and finance. Sometimes I read my old textbooks from college.
Avila University Eagles, undergrad; Rockhurst University Hawks, graduate
A few things in no particular order: Meet Adam Sandler, travel from Milan to Sicily with my wife hitting every major city in between, and to own a Ferrari once the kids are out of college.
I am passionate about helping others achieve their goals of buying a home (whatever stage in life they may be in); this goes hand in hand with helping them achieve their financial objectives whatever those might be.

In college I spent a Summer building retaining walls for a landscaping company – probably the most physical and humbling work I have ever done.
