local mortgage lender

Charlie was very helpful through my entire purchase process. He's very personable and easy to talk to. He explained everything very clearly and answered all questions I had. He provided me with updates throughout the process and even checked in after closing to see how moving was going. I couldn't have asked for a better person to help with my first home purchase."

Charlie took his time to explain my options to me and answered all questions I had throughout the process. He checked in with me regularly to update me on progress between reaching agreement with the seller and closing. Being a first time homebuyer was overwhelming but he presented options and discussed the pros and cons of each so I was comfortable with the decision I made. His support through the process was great and he’s followed up with me a couple times after closing to see how I have settled into my new home."

Unfortunately I have had a couple bad experiences with some other mortgage lenders in the past. But working with Charles on my home loan was the best thing that could have happened to me. He is very professional and was able to make my experience so much easier. He explains things to you, so that you completely understand. He lets you know where you are at in the process at all times. You don't have to feel like you are out of the loop. And he makes sure you know your options to help put you on the best track possible. I would recommend him to anyone."

Jake

local mortgage lender

Charlie made the whole process easy to understand and convenient. With his help, I felt confident with my choices and decisions. He was friendly and helpful, and he made me feel comfortable asking questions that may have seemed silly, but were important or confusing to me. I couldn't have made such big decisions without his help and support."

Sarah

local mortgage lender

I had a lot of moving parts going on at the same time as this home purchase (sale of 2 rental properties and purchase of farm ground). Charlie listened to everything we had going, and integrated it all together to help us accomplish all our goals, not just the one he was participating in.

Jim R.

local mortgage lender

We sold our home "by-owner" and Charles worked with our buyers, who had complicated financial issues, and many fears in a down market. The result was more than excellent. The buyers were so happy with their loan and Charles made them feel very comfortable with the loan process. The buyers told me they would go to him again, and we recommend him to everyone!"

I have known Charlie for quite a few years through the friendship he has with my oldest brother. I needed to refinance my home and Charlie was very knowledgeable and helpful with the whole process. He had quick and concise answers to my questions and was easily available, even on his "off" hours. I appreciate all Charlie has done for me and I still give him calls when I have questions. Thank you Charlie for helping me out through the refinancing process and continuing to help me with other questions I have. I recommend Charlie because he is knowledgeable, concise, and readily available and is willing to go the extra mile to help you out!!"

I appreciated most the prompt responses to our questions. It put us at ease many times just having a simple question answered about the loan process.

Brent A.

My refinance was labor intensive and took a lot of time and effort. Charlie did not give up on me and told me exactly what I needed to do to successfully refinance. I appreciated his tenacity and honesty through a very long process. Even at the closing, Charlie was coaching me on things to do and options I have available. I sincerely appreciated his dedication and hard work!

No matter how easy or challenging your situation is Charles is the best! He listens is thorough and wants to do the best he can for your financial future. We found ourselves dealing with many unusual situations during the loan approval process and Charles ended up finding us the best case scenario locking us in for some incredible savings. Once we were approved the buyer of my other home couldn't get any other bank to take the time they needed to straighten out years of overextended loan activity and bad records that was preventing him from obtaining a new loan. Charles got involved and not just by email. He wasn't afraid to pick up the phone and demand action where it was due. He finally got other financial institutions to write letters and clear activity and obtained a loan for them. What he accomplished in a relatively short period of time was amazing and we were able to meet our purchase agreement closing timeline and now have our dream home! Would and do recommended him to anyone I can."

The service was outstanding as Charlie took the time to thoroughly explain the process, paperwork and answer our questions in full. He was prompt, efficient, thorough and committed 100% to get the loan closed quickly and accurately for us.

At this point, we don't have any suggestions. Charlie not only did a great job communicating everything we needed to do, he also walked us through the entire process making sure all our questions were answered. On top of all that, we could tell that he genuinely cared for us and wanted to do what was best for our situation.

He truly is a terrific man to do business with! I have recommended him to several friends and family. And I wouldn't recommend him if I didn't think he has done a heck of a job!"

Heather

Charlie was great at communicating next steps to us (he has helped us over the course of 2 years get ready to purchase a home). He stuck with us to help us make it happen. We had a few closing date delays (none of them were caused by Midwest Family Lending) and he did everything he could possibly do to speed up the other parties so we could close ASAP and keep us from living on the streets!

Stetson O.

How invested Charlie was in taking care of all the details. My husband and I have busy jobs and not having to worry about this stuff was a huge burden lifted from us! Keep up the good work

Jenny R.

Charles, is very busy for good reason, I never heard a no from him, and there is always another way to do it. He is creative and efficient. I have known many mortgage brokers and I think that this was the smoothest and quickest mortgage purchase I have ever had."

We didn't think we'd ever be able to buy a house and he made it possible! 9 years later we're still in our house and we love it! We feel very fortunate to have him on our side."

Kim

local mortgage lender

We have been working with Charles for the last two years to get our situation to where we could reach the dream of being home owners. Charles was there every step of the way advising us what needed to be done to best reach where we wanting to be. The first year Charles helped us get our credit where it needed to be. The second year Charles worked with us when we found our first home we wanted to purchase. Unfortunately the first home fell through due to the seller. Charles stuck right with us and helped us get things in order. It seemed to be fate. A few weeks after the first home fell through we found the home of our dreams. I would recommend Charles to all friends, family, and anyone looking to start, continue or finish their home buying process. I truly cannot say enough great things about Charles and his abilities to make things possible and financially smart."
