NBKC and Brett Schnake

“This was an amazingly easy transaction. I have bought and sold 10 properties throughout the United States in the last few years and this was by far the easiest, most efficient transaction I have ever been involved with. Brett was always available and returned calls immediately when there were any questions. He was always friendly and efficient and NBKC is very high tech so documents were simple to fill out and return.”

Clear communication and timely action

“We had less than a month to close when we chose NBKC as our lender. Brett was our loan officer and was exceptional in communication and provided timely responses and helped move things along smoothly. A week before closing and everything was already good to go. I highly recommend working with Brett for great rates but more importantly piece of mind through the process!”

Absolutely the best!!

“Brett did a fantastic job for us. Brett’s knowledge and experience made it possible for us to get our home refinanced. A friend of mine ( Mark) referred me to Brett and telling me that Brett will get it done and will work hard in doing so. Mark was so right! Trust me I never have written a review before but Brett totally deserves a job well done! Thank you so much! Jeff”
