My loan officer, Nick Dokken, was prompt, courteous, and answered all my questions. He was very helpful and clear in his explanation of loan terms and conditions. The only hiccup was with the one part of the process he did not control, the appraisal. It was scary faxing all that personal information "just off into space" and not have a person to hand it to, but Nick and his whole team made the process easy and quick, and had the best rate as well!

Working with Ashley, Nick and David was a delight. I felt they were on top of every financial move from gathering the data, filling in the gaps and communicating with me through the process. They made the process painless, efficient and doable all the way from California..... Thank you all for assisting me in my financial goals!!

Judy J. – Visalia, CA

We first tried to refi through US Bank who had our loan currently. They were ridiculously difficult to work with and after 2 months still no refi. I contacted Nick and he got the ball rolling immediately. Signing and reviewing documents was easy and he helped guide us through some decisions and get the best outcome for our situation. Within weeks we went to settlement without stress. Thanks, Nick and the whole team!

Nick Dokken was the absolute best. In having over 4 other loan officers at other lending institutions call me when I applied on LendingTree, Nick was the only one who took to the time to give me the information straight. He over-over-delivered. Any minor problems or miscommunication (which there were so few), Nick took ownership of. He was a true professional and made the process easier.

Michael P. | Maple Grove, MN

Nick was awesome - I've done this before with other mortgage companies that were very hard to deal with and get in touch with - Nick did everything I ask him to do and more - great communication all the way through - super efficient!

John A. | Maple Grove, MN

Nick Dokken was great to work with and walked me through the process. In the future if I have a need I will definitely use him. Thanks.

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.
