    Our experience with Stefen was excellent. He was friendly, honest and was always available to answer our questions even while he was on vacation. He made our buying process very easy and quick. My husband and I highly recommend him.

    Leslie is professional and very knowledgeable. She was very patient when I didn't understand things and took the time to explain everything. She ran different scenarios and was just so helpful.

    Shannon Collier (New Braunfels) has done a wonderful job organizing and communicating everything needed to get us to the "clear to close" point. Gateway's web site has been easy to use, and gathering a secure collection of materials for Shannon was easy to do. The terms are fair and understandable. We will close next week on the home of our dreams.

    Deborah is the consummate professional loan offer. She is very personable and pleasant too. She made my process so easy, answered all my concerns and was always prompt in returning phone calls. She is very thorough in making sure she has all the information she will need to process the application. She left no stone unturned. She is friendly and will greet you with her smile and you feel comfortable from beginning to your closing. I enjoyed working with her. Thanks Deborah for this pleasurable experience. 5 STAR

    Ron, far exceeded my expectations throughout the entire mortgage process. He was most helpful with his advice and help with completing all required details in a short period of time. It was a pleasure working with Ron and I would highly recommend him based on his expertise.

    My husband & I weren’t even thinking of refinancing since we’d only been in our new home for 17 months. However, my son & daughter-in-law spoke so highly of Kamron Kimbrough & Gateway Mortgage that we thought, why not give it a shot! We closed on our refi today with a lower interest rate & lower mortgage payments! We are thrilled with the outcome & extremely thankful for all the help, time, advice & support we received from Kamron. I can truly say this was a “stress-free” experience! If you are buying a home or refinancing your existing loan, I highly recommend Kamron Kimbrough with Gateway Mortgage Group. You will not regret calling Kamron!

    Josh and Gateway Mortgage made the loan process quick, simple, and easy. Josh was very informative and always available to answer any questions I might have. Josh made himself easy accessible throughout the entire process and always responded with clear and concise answers. Being a first time home buyer Josh made the process very simple all the way from pre-approval to closing. Highly recommend!

    He was very helpful and patient. I had multiple questions and he answered all of them without hesitation. Stefen Brooks made the mortgage lending part of the home buying process EASY. For all the ones who are looking for a LENDER without hesitation I would go with Stefen. Thank you so much Stefen for all you did for us.

    Deb helped me so much! My husband is out of the country often, and she helped me every step of the way in purchasing a home on my own. She even got me the lowest rate I have ever had on a home loan. She was quick to reply, and I feel she is a friend at this point with all the help she has given.
