My loan officer, Kevin Gifford, from Brookfield, WI is excellent. He made the process effortless, communicated clearly, and completed the process in a compressed timeframe. From application to close was less than 4 weeks which was very helpful. I will definitely contact Kevin again when necessary.

About Kevin

I have always enjoyed financial services and home lending in particular. I left investments and moved to mortgage banking back in 1987 after Black Monday came and went. I thought, "there has to be a better way to help my client than this" so I moved to mortgage lending. Now in my 30th year with over a billion dollars in personal funding's in my history, I have many personal triumphs and satisfied clients who live better due to my efforts. I have been a top producer in several firms. It's my wish to duplicate that here and help you my clients and business partners with my dedication and experience to achieve more as home owners and real estate professionals in your daily lives.

My business foundation was cultivated at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, where I studied Business Communication. I still believe communication is the key to success in business and in life.

I'm originally from Delavan Lake Wisconsin, where I developed a love for sailing and iceboating and snow skiing. Some things there is less time for these days, but occasionally visited still.

I"ve been married now, 35 years and we have two kids, with a grandchild on the way. It will be a very exciting year for the Gifford family and I'd like to make you part of my Mortgage Family!

Kevin interview Q&A

What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
I focus on my customers first and approach each loan as though I had to pay the bill. What is the best way to buy, build or refinance according to the customers needs and plans. We focus on minimizing fees and payments and maximizing their savings for the period they plan to own the home.
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
First time buyers should always look at the road in front of them and try to foresee what will be important to them over at least the next five years. Accidents happen when home buyers only look at the moment. Most accidents occur when you are just looking at the bumper of the car in front of you instead of the far look down the road to anticipate your obstacles and your opportunities.
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
Be prepared to meet the document requirements. It's really pretty simple if you follow the list up front. Files that are well organized from the beginning are very smooth and stress-free. Files where the paperwork dribbles in are no fun for anyone.
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
Seeing the look of victory at a loan closing that comes upon my borrowers faces is a great reward for what I do. I get a real charge out of enhancing peoples dreams.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I never quit. I have always been a diehard at my hobbies and avocations and I like to point to the absurdity of non-common sense items to help me find solutions when others just roll over and give up on things that are tough. I love humor.
