“The Gaylord-Hansen Team was amazing to work with. Professionalism, transparency, and an extreme sense of urgency to do what needs to get done on time. They also have a great portal to upload all necessary documentation to help maintain data security. If I had more stars I would score the company higher. They helped us purchase a dream second home, and we couldn't be happier. I've worked with many other lenders in past, and these people are by far the best! I won't think twice before working with them again.”

“From the beginning to the end of our escrow, everyone on the Gaylord-Hansen Mortgage Team was absolutely amazing! In our previous home purchase, we had a horrible experience with our lender and were very apprehensive going forward. But everyone we worked with (especially Amanda & Asia) was professional, helpful, and always available! We felt supported every step of the way and everyone was just so kind and easy to work with! I would HIGHLY recommend this team to anyone going forward!!! We couldn't be more happy with the Gaylord-Hansen Mortgage Team!”

“The Gaylord-Hansen Mortgage Team is absolutely fantastic! I would highly recommend them for both a new purchase and a refinance, I have done both with them. They are extremely attentive and kept me updated every step of the way, whether is was from cool video emails to responding to my evening questions. They got me a fantastic rate and made the process very painless, both times!”
