About Travis Smith

Advice for New Home Buyers

Don't get bogged down by the overall numbers when comparing lenders. Only go off of the numbers each lender can control, and find a lender that makes you comfortable to work with. Home-buying is stressful enough, so find an Loan Officer you trust.

Very professional!

“Travis did an excellent job. Communication is key and he was always very quick to respond which helped the process move along as quickly as possible. No surprises. Everything went well and we would recommend!”

Amazing on reconstruction refinance

“We used Travis on a construction loan refinance, he was amazing to work with even with several delays and changes on our end. Everything was laid out well and easy to understand and the best rate/closing costs around. You won't be disappointed”

NBKC Bank - Travis Smith Top Notch

“I found this lender through Costco and have to admit the smoothest financing experience I have ever had. All done electronically, fast, thorough and just seamless. Thank you Travis for always answering my questions and keeping us in the loop the entire time. I also had reached out and was waiting for a payoff on an item prior to refinancing so that I would get a better interest rate - Travis kept checking in with me and was very patient and never pushy. I would call Travis again in the future!!!!”

Travis is awsome!

“I have worked with Travis since the beginning of time. I purchased my 2nd home and financed it thru him. I have refinanced at least 4 times with him. I am very happy. He is always there to make sure that the client is informed and satisfied. From the beginning he presented many refinance options, patiently he waited for me to make a decision. I am glad I have a loan agent. I recommend him to anyone that is a first time buyer or not. Thanks you Travis;”

3rd Time is a charm

“This last transaction was our 3rd loan with Travis as our Loan Officer. We purchased our first home in 2016, which is when we first met Travis. Another home purchase later and the most recent is our refinance in 2021, Travis is the only Loan Officer we have ever dealt with. He always gets the job done and we have no need or desire to work with anyone else.”

Great job!

“We recently used Travis for our mortgage refinance. The entire process was simple and completed in about 30 days. I would recommend Travis to anyone seeking a new mortgage.”

“They were quick, but at the end of the process, paperwork was not included in the signing, so it created some extra work getting the information completed with the payout with my ex”

Easy and Efficient Loans and Refinances

“We have worked with Travis on two refinances and two home purchases now (one conventional loan and a jumbo). Each time the process has been super easy and efficient. Travis is organized, an excellent communicator, and follows up to make sure your loan meets deadlines and passes underwriting. He will get you across the finish line with a minimum of stress or worry. (it helps that NBKC rates typically offers the most competitive interest rates too!). We might not need a loan for a while (hoping we stay in our new place a long time...), but if we do need a loan, Travis is the first guy we contact!”
