Working with Stephen was a pleasure. He's so knowledgeable and capable of explaining options in a meaningful way. There is no hand waving or obfuscation--he simply presents VERY COMPETITIVE options. The process itself was so smooth. He asked for what he needed the first time. There were no documentation request volleys. I recommend him to everyone I know.

Did amazing job with helping us. He really knows what he is doing. I will always recommend him for friends and family. We were told that we cannot do a conventional loan and he was able to get it for us. It was always easy to get a hold of him and when we did leave messages he always called back within a few hours

Steve and team were amazing to work with. He spent time getting to know me and the needs of my family and took great care of me through the whole process. The team kept me informed every step of the way and everyone was always incredibly responsive. Even though I went through multiple offers, Steve was always there to help get things ready whenever we needed it, even with little notice. I will definitely work with Steve again.

I just moved into my first home! I didn't know anything about real estate when I started considering buying a house. I quickly learned that this is about more than just trying to get a bargain rate - because buying a home involves a HUGE amount of TRUST. After my first conversation with loan consultant Steve Farrington, I knew I had found my lender. He didn't rush to give me a 2-second quote like the other lenders I had consulted. He asked me what I wanted and could afford, and then he actually listened. Imagine that! Steve always took the time to answer my questions - and I had a lot of them! He spent time teaching me so that I could make the best decisions for myself. And when I found that dream house 2 days before leaving for my vacation? He moved FAST! I had an accepted offer before I left! Steve was always available by phone, email, and text. By the time I signed the huge stack of papers at the end, I knew exactly what I was signing. Everything went PERFECTLY and we even closed early - with a great rate!

Would definitely work with my lender again! Highly recommended. Very professional, respectful and takes the time to make sure you’re well informed and educated to make the right decision.

From beginning to end Steve Farrington and the Gaylord-Hansen Mortgage team were were knowledgeable, professional, and best of all available. Every question or concern I had was answered with accurate information in a timely manner and with complete understanding. They went above and beyond throughout the entire experience and made what is a stressful process, a seamless one. I will never be able to recommend them highly enough and will never go to anyone else. Thank you so much for everything you have done for us.

Steve was amazing, the day we made an offer on a house he took the time (even though it was the weekend) to spend about 45 minutes on the phone with us to get the information he needed for us to get the pre-approval necessary. He stayed in constant communication, and was easily accessible. We even had to call him one evening to talk us through signing off on a document. He again gave up his own personal time to help us navigate our way. Working with Steve was an Excellent Experience

Everything went smoothly and was fun at the same time. No stress! Steve was always professional and very helpful by explaining everything as it was happening.
