Advice for New Home Buyers
Never overextend yourself.
“Jeff has been incredible throughout our first home buying process. The communication is top tier with consistent updates and details from both him and Ellen. When we found the right home, he got us the preapproval letter within minutes on a Sunday afternoon and was even able to secure us a quicker close date to accommodate the sellers request. We have worked with two other lenders that were not helpful, nor professional and Jeff has been a breath of fresh air in every aspect. ”

“In the last year I’ve purchase or refinanced four homes and Jeff was the best loan officer I’ve worked with by a long shot! He was proactive and efficient at every stage of the process and made the loan process so much easier than anyone else I’ve worked with. Not only was he great to work with but NBKC had the best rates and lowest fees I could find by a long shot. I only wish I’d found him sooner and I plan to work with him on any future loans! Thanks Jeff!”
—Megan Waldie from from Alamogordo, NM
“This is my second time working with Jeff after being recommended to my by a real estate agent buddy of mine. I don’t think I’ll ever use anybody else. He’s always extremely prompt in communicating what is needed and keeps the ball rolling. He makes everything exceptionally easy. High marks!”

“Buying a house is stressful enough, but buying a house from Germany was stressful and overwhelming. So when it was time to get preapproved for a home my husband and I knew we wanted to work with Jeff again. The process was simple and within hours we were preapproved and on to the next stage of the homebuying process. Once we found a home Jeff worked with our realtor to make our dream home come true. I am so grateful for Jeff and his work ethic. You cannot ask for a better lending officer.”

“Even with the market so crazy, Jeff was attentive and quickly to answer my questions. Our loan process went smoothly, on-time and with no surprises. Jeff's assistance was awesome. I will happily work with Jeff again and recommend him to all of my friends. THANKS...”

“Jeff was available for every question that my wife and I had during our whole loan process. This wasn't our first time buying a house but it was our first time doing new construction and he helped with all the weird little things along the way.”

“Jeff was very helpful throughout the whole purchase process. He helped answer any questions we had and was very quick to respond to emails. This was our first home purchase and I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone looking to purchase a home.”

“This guy Jeff was awesome from start to finish. Was extremely helpful and patient throughout the process. Would recommend to family and friends (and maybe even a couple of people I don’t like,eh) Thanks Jeff”

“Wanted it to be a great experience but it wasn’t. Unfortunately every deadline and due date was missed, we had to constantly reach out to Jeff and remind him we needed things done. Everything in our escrow: insurance and taxes were incorrectly entered. Nine months later we are still trying to get things corrected on the mortgage. The signing company they used did not do their documents correctly. The title company entered our Plat information incorrectly. We paid 45 days extra in construction loan expenses because of delays and now we are overpaying our Escrow account by $1000.00 a month thanks to Jeff. We cannot get the bank to fix the overages in our escrow because of the information Jeff entered, although we’ve spoken to nine different supervisors. We have spent months trying to make these corrections and get everything squared away. It has cost us an additional $6200 after closing. I will never recommend doing business with Costco or NBCK bank again. Jeff literally did not care about our $600,000 house loan.”
