"We recently had the opportunity to work with Kim at Midwest Family Lending to purchase a home. The people at Midwest were courteous and friendly. The housing loan was handled in a professional manner. The people were fast and competent. My husband and I had been through some hard times and did not believe that we could get funding for a home. Traditional banks had turned us down, refusing to even work with us. Kim at Midwest Family Lending not only looked at us, but did get us the loan for a home that we can now call our own.
