About Nick

Nick Dokken is a top rated loan officer who has always been somewhat of a mortgage geek. His in-depth knowledge and understanding of global equity markets coupled with a ruthless dedication to customer service yield both an enjoyable experience for his clients as well as well-executed mortgage, every time. When asked what he thinks is the most important factor in the mortgage process, he will tell you that it is communication, and the understanding of his client’s financial goals. He works with a wide range of customers, most of which are repeat customers moving to a new home, or friends and family of previous customers buying their first home or condo. Nick is originally from Minneapolis, MN and is a huge fan of all Minnesota sports. He has been living in Chicago since 2011.

Nick interview Q&A

What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
It's all about options. I'll gather as much information as I can, and give my customers a few options so that they can choose the most beneficial loan option for them.
Tell us about a mortgage product that consumers may not be aware of?
Most people are aware of products and investors that require at least 15% down for jumbos.. I've recently been using an investor that allows us to put only 10% down, and the Underwriting is done right here at Guaranteed Rate. People are loving this new product!
What part of the home loan process do customers find most difficult and how do you help them through it?
Nowadays, the mortgage process is a lot different than how it used to be. Underwriters require more documentation, and can seem overwhelming for people if you don't set the right expectations. I am always assisting my borrowers in gathering all necessary paperwork, and setting the right expectations up front to make the process as smooth as possible.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
I've always been a sports nut. Whether it's a pick-up game of hoops, or watching football from the couch on Sundays, I'm all in for anything sports related. My other passion in life, is food of course.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I do voices. Ask me to impersonate someone, and it should be pretty spot on.
