What Our Customers Say About Me

Soren L. Sep-19
“Kim Carlson was amazing to work with! She is very knowledgeable, friendly, and respectful.”
Carol C. Sep-19
“Even though the entire process until closing was done via email or phone calls Kim was very personable and caring and easy to understand. I really appreciated this relived extra stress from the process.”
Stephanie - Interior Designer
“We used Kim on our home mortgage for our first home purchase and she not only gave us the best rate, but was great at walking us through the process and helping us speed things along. Even before we started looking for a house I emailed her several times to help us figure out what we could afford. She always got right back to me and answered all my questions. Then, I contacted Kim to see how we could speed the process of dropping our Property Mortgage Insurance (PMI) and she called back with the option of applying for a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC). We were able to have our PMI removed through the process because the bank paid for an appraisal which showed that the value of our home had increased significantly. We not only saved the $600 appraisal fee, but now pay $60/month less on our mortgage since we no longer need the PMI. If you want a mortgage broker who listens and looks out for your best interest, you need Kim!”

“Kim is absolutely amazing. Our entire experience with her was so smooth. She was patient with us as we got prepared to buy and during our house hunting process she was readily available to answer any questions we had about payment scenarios, taxes, etc. and got back to us super quickly. Once we were under contract Kim did everything in a timely way so that we could get everything done in our short 30 day closing window. I would recommend Kim to anyone looking to buy a home.”

“Kim is absolutely fantastic! She helped to make our entire loan process easy and stress free. She went through every question we had in great detail and explained each type of loan and what would work best for us. I highly seeing Kim.”
Cynthia Bezard
“Working with Kim has been a delight. As we are relocating from out of state, her attentiveness and professionalism made this a very enjoyable experience. She spent extra time explaining things and always got back to us in a timely manner. She shared the reasons her and her family love living in Idaho which dismissed a lot of fears that come with moving to a new state. We never felt rushed and she always took time to ask how things were going for us. I would highly recommend using the services that Kim Carlson provides!”
Jennifer Kitchener - Manager
“Kim was amazing from start to finish. We had no idea we could even qualify for a home loan and were looking for a starting point. On our first visit we learned that not only could we fulfill our homeownership dream we got prequalified and began our home search. We kept her busy asking frequently to run us numbers to see the monthly estimate and she always responded quickly and eagerly. When our time came to do our loan paperwork we could sign electronically but requested to sign in person, we had lots of questions about closing and fees and she let us know that signing in person is what she preferred so we understood our loan. All the way up to our final closing signing she was right there to help us. I will refer friends to her and return to her when we someday do it again!!! Thank you for a wonderful first time buying exprerience!! ”
Debbie Applegate - Client
“Kim Carlson is a great loan officer. She is friendly and helpful and makes you feel like your business is her most important priority. She is quick and gets things moving fast and efficiently. We had an opportunity to watch her on several transactions with other clients thru real estate, and we hand picked her when it came time for us to need a lender. She is nothing short of a "10" and I would recommend her in all aspects as a loan officer to anyone who is in the market. She will not disappoint. For the first time I can say it was truly an enjoyable process having her in our court. Thanks.... Great job Kim! ”

Lance Hamma - Home owner
“Kim has helped us buy 2 different houses, and get a Home-Equity Line of Credit (HELOC). All of these things took a great deal of effort and patience, because we are completely unaware of the terms and processes need to do this. She was there every step of the way, explaining what each term was, how it can change to meet our needs, all with a kind, friendly and helpful manner. I would and have recommended her to others for help with different mortgage needs. ”

I strongly recommend her to others who are looking to purchase or finance a home. ”

Even when things went a little south during the whole process of selling our house and simultaneously buying our new house she kept her cool and explained to us that these hiccups are not uncommon and that we would get through it. One great thing about Kim is that she kept constant communication with us so we were never in the dark and weren't surprised by anything which we really appreciated. We would definitely recommend Kim to anyone who is looking for a loan on their new home.”

She told us exactly (and acuurately) what to expect and when... and she was right on each and every time. Kim kept us informed well in advance as to what was going to happen next and when we needed to have submitted well in advance. She was, by far, the most pleasant and comforting factor of the entire process ”
