My husband, my 9 month old son, and I just moved to the area about four months ago. We are wanting to buy our first home in May or June.
I was wondering if any of you could give me information on your expereince with obtaining your mortgage (good or bad). I need someone that will be straight forward with information and helpful since this will be our first home buying experience. Thanks, S.

What can I do next?

We have used Randy Hoeschen at Associated Bank several times (a couple of refinances and a recent home purchase). He is honest, dependable, straight forward and will explain everything to you. Here is his contact information:

I would not recommend Wells Fargo, we had an unpleasant experience dealing with a lender there. Nothing seemed to go right and he wasn't really representing us well.

Hi S.,
Welcome to Minneapolis! I am in the mortgage lending business and i have also bought my first house 2 years ago so i hope i can help. my first suggestion would be to pull your credit and make sure there isn't anything on there that shouldn't be. (go to freecreditreport.com)if there is anything that may be affecting your credit score- take care of it right away. a credit score of 720 or above will really help you get the best rate. you have a few months to get your score up if needed. My sister is a Realtor and i am sure she would be happy to pull some listings for you if you want to see what kind of house you can get for the money. feel free to email me or give me a call at my office - it's Community Lenders ###-###-#### and my name is A.. Good luck! i would be happy to give you as much help and advice as i am able and i know the city of Minneapolis pretty well so if you are unfamiliar with what areas to house hunt in- i can offer some advice there as well.
take care and i hope to talk to you soon.

Hi S.. My husband is a real estate agent and so I asked him for a reliable, honest person whome he enjoys working with. He recommended Deb Bohn. She actually did a refinance for us personally and did a great job. I hope this helps and if you need an agent to work with I know a really nice guy ;)

my sister is a loan officer for Vermillion State Bank, her office is out of Hastings, which is a little ways, but we just bought a place in NE Mpls with them. They are very straight forward and will work to help you find what is best for YOU not THEM, since they are a smaller bank, they are much more customer service oriented, they WANT your business, I think they are great!! If you want their number, please email me and ask for it!
