Go home with us.

Helping you buy a home is our passion.

Climb atop Mt. Mortgage, and you’ll find us waiting to dispense wisdom upon the unknowing masses who dare seek our guidance and deep knowledge of all that is home loan financing.

We’re kidding, we’re not like that at all! But we know some others may seem that way. The truth is that getting a home loan is complicated, but the calculations, paperwork and processes shouldn’t be the things on your mind when you buy a home. You have enough to worry about. You also have a lot to be excited about!

Leave the details to us, we’re MortgageNerds, and we LOVE being able to crunch numbers and work through the cumbersome home loan process to get you the mortgage you need to move in.

Seeing the look on our clients faces when they close on their dream homes is what gets us out of bed every morning.

Why finance your home with MortgageNerds?

Because no other mortgage company cares as much as we do about getting you into your home. Next question.

Okay, that sounds a bit cliché, we know. There are, however, plenty of reasons why we’re proud to be able to help you with your mortgage. Here’s why we believe we can do the most to get your home loan financed:

We’re Experienced
Mortgage Brokers

We have the best mortgage programs available

We don’t believe that you have to choose between a big, impersonal bank that offers every mortgage available, and a local mortgage broker, who doesn’t have access to the best, exclusive mortgage programs.

Our Mortgage Nerds have access to the best mortgage programs around, and the most resourceful minds in the business to creatively solve any challenge you can throw at them.

Some of these mortgage programs include:

USDA Loans

  • No money down

  • 100% cash out

  • Strict underwriting guidelines
  • No PMI for first time homebuyers Income restrictions

We love being able to tell our clients “yes” when everybody else has told them no! Many of these programs include little to no money down and are available for clients with lower credit scores.

We know your situation is unique

Remember how we said we have access to the same programs the big banks and lenders do? We don’t treat you like you’re just another unit we’ve moved. Our goal is getting you the best program for you.

We know that’s different for everybody, so our process begins with getting to know you and your unique situation. Instead of just throwing popular choices at you, or assuming your situation is the same as the last one, we want to give you a mortgage that is surprisingly customized for you.

Working with MortgageNerds means you get the best of both worlds – a huge well of knowledge, expertise and experience that is personal, relational and knows how unique your home financing situation is.

Our Team of Mortgage Nerds
5 Star Mortgage Broker

Like Jedi Knight, friendly neighborhood Spider Man, or USS Enterprise captain, the title of mortgage nerd is one that comes with important distinctions and responsibilities. Here’s our team:

Mike Cox, Pam Gustafson, Brian Hofmann, Scott Bonovich, Jake Knuppel, Jenilee Ehlenbeck, Kelly Xiong, and David Vander Leest

Get to know your
Mortgage Nerds team!

We asked everybody in the office to tell us something random and fun about themselves. Here’s what your mortgage nerds had to say!

It’s the fun facts and unique traits that make life interesting. We believe the exact same goes for your mortgage situation. No two are alike! While you may not be looking for homes in Australia or trying to buy a home with your jaw wired shut, we know that there aren’t blanket one-size-fits all answers for everybody.

It’s why we approach your situation the way we do – seeing you and your mortgage needs as unique and fun! We love to dig in and overcome challenges – you might even say that we’re nerdy about it.

Let us find you the right mortgage

If you’re looking for a loan, talk to us. As mortgage nerds, we will do everything possible to get you that perfect loan, based on your unique situation. We won’t talk down to you, or assume you know the dictionary of words specific to the home finance industry. Who has time to memorize an entire dictionary?

Well, we do…but that’s because we’re mortgage nerds!
