Having purchased many homes in the past, I have worked with many lenders and loan officers. Barbara Bell stands out as the best! Always positive, helpful, caring, efficient, and knowledgeable. We needed a quick pre-approval to purchase a home. Another lender told us it would take a couple of days, Barbara dropped everything to make it happen within our very short timeframe. Without her, we would have lost our dream home. She made the process as easy and pleasurable as possible. I would and will, recommend her to anyone needing a home loan.
My wife and I shopped around several different banks/lenders, and immediately I knew Barbara at Gateway First Bank was the right choice. She was extremely responsive, even at the most inconvenient of times after hours when I had loan questions (sorry Barbara!) She was willing to answer any and every question I had thoroughly and that was even before I had applied for a loan with them. We were first time home buyers and she helped us get an incredible loan with great rates, and was along side us through the whole process making sure the process was as smooth as possible. Don't waste time with other lenders who are looking out for THEIR best interest, go to Barbara who will lookout for YOUR best interest every time.
I was kept advised the whole time as to what was going on, everything was explained to me in advance so I knew what to expect. I felt really valued. I would recommend Barbara time and time again.
Both the company and agent, Barbara Bell, were wonderful. Our mortgage went very smoothly. They were working with us from a different state and we never had a breakdown in communication. I highly recommend Barbara and Gateway Mortgage.
My husband and I are first time home buyers so we were nervous going into this process and had lots of questions. Barbara was super helpful and made sure we understood the whole process. She always made sure we were informed of every little detail during the loan process. I would definitely use her again in the future if needed.
Barbara Bell and her team was everything. There were moments when I wanted to give up and then they would come with some exciting amd good news. The whole process was stressful for me since this was my first time buying a home, but she kept me afloat and for that I appreciate her. Thank you for everything. Highly recommended.
Barbara stayed in close contact while we had to unfreeze our credit reports. Took a long while. She phoned regularly and ran our credit immediately when it was unfrozen. We had excellent credit scores, but have since decided not to pursue purchasing a property.
In 2016, Barbara Bell worked with our financing for our new home in Tulsa. She was the best financial officer we evere worked with. Her expertise was exceptional blended with the keen ability to explain complicated terminology to a lay person. Our particular situation was complex and Barbara handled it with professionalism, attention to detail, and responsiveness. She always sent us clear emails and kept us up to date. Reminders were timely and we knew just what to do. Just recently we decided to refinance our home. We called Barbara Bell and once again she was amazing. She answered all of our questions and kept us informed. She understood our requirement and advised us accordintly. She is the best and we highly recommend her. You won't be disappointed.

My husband and I were highly pleased with Barbara’s service during our home purchase. She was very ethical and attentive and explained every step of the process along the way. She kept us informed of each step of the home buying process. We would highly recommend her to our friends .
I didn't have to chase down info or even inquire about status, she was in constant contact and the communication was amazing. I like the automated e-mail features and the client portal that allowed me to get her my information without needing to meet in person. Organizationally, Barbara had everything lined up and even met us at closing to make sure everything went off without an issue. If I had a mortgage company, I'd steal Barbara in a heartbeat.
