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.
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:
MortgageNerds is powered by GSF Mortgage. The same GSF Mortgage that just celebrated 50 years helping people get the homes they want. The same GSF Mortgage that has a giant trophy case full of awards like:
We could go on! Every single mortgage that we sign is backed by GSF Mortgage, meaning you’re getting access to the lowest mortgage rates and best mortgage programs available, without having to take a number and stand in line at a big downtown bank.
Our team of mortgage lenders is not only passionate about helping you find the right mortgage, we’re trusted.
We have over 77 years of combined experience finding the perfect home loan for our clients. It doesn’t matter who you are or what others have told you, we’ll do everything we can to get you into your new home. We close loans that other lenders can’t – it’s that simple.
We don’t believe that you have to choose between a big, impersonal bank that offers every mortgage available, and a local lender, 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:
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.
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.
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, David Ansorge,
We asked everybody in the office to tell us something random and fun about themselves. Here’s what your mortgage nerds had to say!
“My experience with GSF was awesome! I would definitively recommend them to anyone, any questions I had they could answer or would find an answer for me. Great people to work with!”
Purchase Customer (Zillow) | Fort Atkinson, WI
“I rarely meet a “professional” within a profession anymore. So, when someone really shines and exceeds my expectations, I have to share my experience so that others may have the same opportunity. I am referring to Pam Gustafson and the team at GSF Mortgage who assisted us in a refinance with a VA Loan. The service we received was 10 star to us! Pam maintained excellent communication with my questions and with all the people involved in my lending experience (which was very challenging!) If something had to be done, she was on it! In addition, we had another house that was closing after our Refinance and she worked with the title company to assist us in associated closing details. The title company made a comment about how great Pam was to work with. Thank you Pam for taking care of all the things that came up. It was reassuring to know you were there because I had faith that you would get it done! And you did, every time! By assisting us with this loan, you have made our lives so much better and we can not thank you enough. For those in need of a mortgage, we give Pam Gustafson, Amy Coppus and GSF Mortgage our highest recommendation! Thanks again, Pam!!”

“Brian was awesome to work with! My wife and I had been working with another branch when we discovered they were trying to pull a fast one, and Brian jumped right in. In a matter of a week we were pre-approved for a loan and he help raise out credit scores. Being a first-time home buyer Brian and GSF Mortgage Fox Valley made it easy and made us feel good about making the biggest investment. Thank you, Brian, and GSF!!”
Tobin | Little Chute, WI
“My husband and I had a fantastic experience working with Scott Bonovich on the purchase of our new home. From beginning to end, he was informative, extremely thorough and attentive to our financial needs, making sure we understood the process and educating us on our financing options to help us secure the best loan program for our needs. He went above and beyond in advising us on what we needed to do to improve our credit to secure our loan. We appreciate everything Scott did for us and we highly recommend him to anyone buying a home!”
Danial & Michelle | Neenah, WI
“Jake was great to work with and made my first time home buying experience great. He was there to answer all my questions and did a great job of keeping me from Stressing out about all the little things.”
Dane | Green Bay, WI
“My wife and I bought our house about 8 or 9 months ago. These amazing people at GSF Mortgage helped us get through the long process of buying the house. They stuck with us through multiple setbacks and continued to give support and resources to help us reach our end goal of owning a house. I remember all of the help Jenilee Ehlenbeck was to me. She was always a friendly voice that helped me to get through the processes. She made it as easy as possible to navigate the complicated process. Thank you so much, Jenilee and GSF Mortgage for your incredible help. I now Have a house for my family to grow up in. My wife, daughter and soon to be second child love our home.”

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.
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!Contact Us
