Client Testimonials:

"John Holmgren was an important part of the team that helped get us our house.  His reputation is excellent in the local real estate community which makes a difference when submitting an offer.  He was able to arrange a very quick close that allowed us to make a competitive winning bid against at least 9 others." - Emily G.

"When buying a home, one of the things a lot of people don't realize is how important the mortgage broker is. Especially in this competitive market, we were always one of a dozen strong offers. We truly believe that having a well-regarded person like John Holmgren's name on our offer helped, but also having him and Jim Valler follow through on an extremely fast escrow period did wonders.

We just closed on our first home and are extremely excited and relieved. We could not have done this with intact sanity had they not been so patient, clear, responsive and supportive during such a stressful time." - Kara R.

"My husband and I just worked with John Holmgren on the pre-approval and mortgage process and have nothing but great things to say about our experience.  His service and responsiveness were top notch and we always felt that he was working hard for us and our best interests.  We would highly recommend John to others!" - J.J.
