The team at AMEC led by Chad Banken were very professional and helpful throughout the loan application and approval process and then through closing. There were no glitches or even miscommunication even though most of the process was on-line (and therefore very convenient). I highly recommend AMEC.

Chad was awesome to work with. Always a positive attitude. Answered our questions promptly, always available, even responded to emails after hours. The transaction was smooth and quick. The realtor ever commented on how much communication was provided.

I decided that it was time to start building equity and stop renting but had no idea how to go about it. Chad taught me a TON about loan types, which options were best for us and why, and more! He guided us through each step of the process clearly and effectively, leading to successful close on our first home. We even had some issues with the last bit of documentation late in the process and he fought for us to close later the same day, allowing us to move in on-schedule! We will most definitely be working with Chad and his team for mortgages in the future. They beat a few other options for our specific financial/FHA situation - and we recommend Chad highly to others!

Chad and team did all of the work in finding us the best rates. We were in a hurry to find a home and their response time and willingness to be available was amazing. They were great partners in the home buying process and I would recommend them to anyone buying a home or refinancing.

As a new home owner using a va loan, Chad helped me from the day I first met him until the day a closed on my first home. He is still available for any questions/concerns that come up two months after closing. Would recommend to anyone!
Eden Prairie , MN via Zillow
As a first time home buyer with virtually no knowledge of the process, I still had an easy time every step of the way thanks to Chad. He was really helpful with getting me approved, advising me on the right type of interest rate/closing cost option, and the closing itself. Recommended to first time and experienced home buyers alike!

I've done multiple refis and purchases with Chad. He has always been extremely dependable, accessible and proactive in making sure I am aware of the opportunities at hand and manages the process extremely well. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chad to anyone. Great experience.
