Mike and his team are phenomenal!! We had a horrible 2-3 month long experience with a traditional bank that ended badly and brought us to Guaranteed Rate. The team at Guaranteed Rate closed our mortgage in less than three weeks from our very first contact with them. Much of the process was electronic, which was very convenient for us as we lived a hour away from Sioux Falls. The whole team was very informative and very responsive to emails and questions! Mike worked very hard to make sure we...

About Mike

Having been a mortgage loan officer for 27 years, I truly have a passion for my customers and helping them close loans. My customers are my number one priority first and foremost, the reason I have been in this position for so long. For some, the mortgage process can be a little daunting, that’s why I’m here to help you through every step of the process.

The most enjoyable part of the job is watching the excitement on my customers faces when they have been approved for their home loan. Being able to see the excitement in peoples faces when buying a home is something that will never get old for me. It’s the start of a new chapter for some and a continuing story for others. Regardless of your situation, I would love nothing more than to help you through the pre-approval process.

Mike interview Q&A

Who is your typical customer and what questions do they typically have?
My typical customer can be anyone from first time home buyers to someone buying their second or even third home. One of the most commonly asked questions I get as a loan officer, is how much money that I would need to make a down payment. Another question that I receive often is how much am I looking at for my monthly payments should I expect?
What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
In addition to taking a customers loan application, I ask every client about 10 additional questions that I've come up with. This process allows me to better determine the best home loan for them and their situation.
What are the top 3 misconceptions people have about the home loan process?
The first misconception that comes to mind would be that people still think you need to put 20% down on a home in order to purchase it. In addition to that, people often think that they must live in the house for a certain number years in order to avoid a penalty, which is also not true! The last one that comes to mind would be that clients think that all banks, mortgage companies and credit unions are the same when it comes to their rules and guidelines when buying a home.
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
Being able to get the customers approved for the loan makes me feel great, knowing that I was able to do my job to the best of my ability. But on the other hand, being able to see the excitement on a customers face when at first they might have thought all hope was lost, that's what makes me passionate about the industry.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
In my spare time, I really enjoy spending time with my wife and two children. Whether it's golfing or doing other outdoor actives, spending time with my family and friends is what I enjoy most!
