Hi, I’m Jason Pleggenkuhle, licensed mortgage loan originator with Midwest Family Lending! You might be thinking, “What’s a mortgage/home loan originator even do?” Simply put, I help people buy and refinance their homes. Think of me as your coach through the mortgage process.

It's been my joy to get to support the coolest people along their homeownership journeys for more than 20 years. Past customers and their referrals make up more than half of my business. Financial planners, bankers and realtors also pass my name as a resource to their clients. Perhaps that’s what brought you here. In any case, you can rest assured I will take good care of you and your family too.

My goal is to make the loan the easy part of buying a home and to help Iowans understand they have options. When starting the home-buying process, most people spend tons of time researching homes and leave the financing as an afterthought. I’ve found the best approach for a great buying experience is starting with knowing your financing options and then using that to find the right home for your family.

I start by asking a series of questions to help us understand the right loan for your needs. Getting to know your long-term plan is important. There's a difference in helping someone buy their first home verses their forever home. We all have a story. And the house/property we buy determines the school our kids go to, the neighbors we call friends, the church we attend and the community we call home. 

Faith, family, friends and community are my priorities. My family has lived in our current home for nearly 20 years. My wife Jacki and I met at Iowa State University. We've been married for 25 years, and we have 3 boys. We love to travel and make memories together. And I don't leave my coaching hat at the mortgage office. I love baseball and was blessed to coach my boys and their friends.

It's never too early to review options for putting you and your family in the best financial situation possible with plenty of room for what matters to you. With financing options and lending rules always changing, make sure you are working with someone who knows your best option. Conventional, FHA, USDA and VA loans are all options I am happy to compare and explain.

Whether you’re looking to purchase your first home, refinance your current home or build your dream home, I would love the opportunity to earn your trust. I look forward to coaching you along the way.
