Advice for New Home Buyers
Start early. Have a loan officer review your credit and financial position well before you are ready to make an offer.
“I am very fortunate to work with Kati on my first home purchase. She was very responsive, committed, and helpful during my purchase process. I recommend Kati for your future home purchase.”
—Gopi from Suwanee, GA
“As you can see from a previous review we are using Kati AGAIN! Lost count how many times! Kati is fabulous to work with. She is very professional, but she is also very warm and personable. We are closing on another loan, and Kati was again efficient and quick. She stays on top of the process and is in constant communication. It’s quite apparent that Kati is our GO TO person for home loans!”
—Barbara Fuller from Gainesville, GA
“Kati was there every step of the way to help us with our home equity loan. Worda cannot explain how easy she made this for us. Thank you again NBKC, we will definitely be doing business again.”
—Mark B from Platte City, MO
“Kati was fantastic to work with. For several months prior to our purchase when we were putting in offers she would send me quotes when asked of what our monthly payments would look like and always kept me updated on what the current interest rates were. When we finally had an offer accepted we went right to her for our loan. The entire process with her went amazingly easy, she always answered questions, got back to us quickly, and kept us up to date on everything. I can not recommend her enough.”
—Dustin from Saratoga Springs, NY
“Katie was very professional. She was awesome to work with. She responded quickly to questions. When she was going to be out of the office, she would let us know and what we needed to with documents and questions in her absence. We would highly recommend her. ”

“Tomorrow we close on our home. We have been looking for 2 1/2 years for a home. Kati has been great every step of the way. She is very attentive to details and responds to questions very quickly. Our realtor has had bad experiences dealing with out of state Lenders but she told us Kati has changed her thought on that. Kati was really great to work with. It was really nice to find someone that truly believes in customer service and not just pressuring us into something. My wife and I never once felt pressured by her. Did I mention she was truly great to work with. I will for sure tell everyone looking for a mortgage to give Kati a chance. ”
—Bj Massie from Richland, WA
“Kati has been so patient, so kind and so helpful. She has truly made us feel so comfortable throughout the entire process of buying our first home. We first came into contact with her about 3 years ago, when we wanted to see what the market was like and what options we had. She has been with us through this entire process and we really feel as though we couldn't have purchased our first home without her. No question seemed unintelligent and we were able to get a lower interest rate than expected. She is really on top of everything and has a quick turn around, it all has been painless and has gone so smoothly. Thank you Kati, you truly made our dream come true. ”
—Deric Martinez & Ash from Wimberley, TX
“Kati took the time to understand my situation as a first time homebuyer, explain the process and the lingo for me and worked with me to secure a loan for my new home. Kati made everything so easy - I would recommend her to anyone and everyone that I know. She is very in tune with the market and will give you many options so that you can pick the best option. I NEVER felt any pressure or that I was being sold something, Kati was fantastic and her customer service inspired confidence that I had picked the right lender. She was present through every step of the process and I wasn't bounced to different departments or people - It was just Kati from first contact and until we closed today. This was honestly one the best customer service experiences that I can remember.”
—Travis J. from Wixom, MI
“I first got to know Kati through my best friend, who closed on her house in 2017. Since then, I have worked with Kati on various loans - for my new home in 2018, refinancing in 2020, and now for a new condo. Kati has been incredibly patient throughout the loan process and always responds promptly to my inquiries. She kept me well-informed at every step of the way. Even when we faced a hiccup during the process, Kati handled it perfectly. I can confidently say that Kati is simply the best. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of her services.”
—Nipapak (Kate) Klits from Galveston, TX
“Kati was recommended to me by a coworker after I had a bad experience with another mortage company. Kati was wonderful to work with over the year or so it took us to find a house. She was always available if we had questions or needed a report run and was very patient in explaining all the details to us being first time home buyers. I genuinely appreciate all her help in getting the right home for us! 10/10 would recommend working with her.”
—Claire Tallarovic from Des Plaines, IL
Never give up, there is always someone who has had it harder. And to live simply so others can simply live.
If I tell you then everyone will know and it will no longer be surprising :)

Making the process not only easy, but somewhat enjoyable for my clients. No one is excited to get a home loan, but that does not mean we cannot have some fun while doing it!
I love to spend time with my family, read books, and spend time in nature.
I worked in a pet store in college and had to feed the Caiman, which are small crocodiles.
