Truely a rewarding experience
"Working with Nathan was truly a rewarding experience. Reducing both our interest rate and shortening the term was more than I anticipated. The process took a while with the new regulations, but I couldn’t be happier."

Ensures a smooth mortgage loan and closing
"There are many things to juggle during the moving process, so it is important to have a mortgage company you can trust to take care of the details with the banks and at closing.  Home Mortgage Specialists not only ensured a smooth mortgage loan and closing, but also found the lowest interest rate available."

Amazing! Could not have bought a house with him!
"When I first came to Nathan I had just been through a tornado and was staying with family. I got denied for a home loan, but Nathan work with me for the next 8months guiding me, giving me information and giving me the confidence I needed to get approved. It took a lot of hard work on my part, but he was always there to answer any questions and was never trying to push me to do something I didn't understand or want to do. I went through him 2 years later to refinance my house. Again he was amazing and no matter how much work he put into a deal of I wasn't comfortable with it, he'd start over with a new one. He always explained anything in detail no matter how many times I asked. I highly recommend anyone interested in buying house, don't waste your time. Go see Nathan Durst. If it was not for him and my hard work I would not be a proud home owner today!"

Extremely educated and helpful
Nathan was extremely helpful in this process. I was very uneducated as to what would happen and when. He kept me informed all along the way and was at my closing."

A man with integrity
"With all the bad news about banks and lenders out there, home loans can be a scary undertaking. Nathan Durst was amazing to work with. He exudes authenticity and integrity. He is just a great guy and did an amazing job helping us figure out financing for our new house. It was a very personal experience and he saw the process through from A-Z. He found a loan/rate that beat several other banks I sourced."
