    We loved working with Terry Wooten on our last 2 home purchases and 1 selling. He is very responsive and has the best customer service. We highly recommend him and the gateway team!

    This was the best executed mortgage transaction I have ever experienced (out of more than a dozen). From the application process all the way through closing and funding, the communication was excellent and each person involved was professional and completed their part of the process within the promised timeline. I was especially pleased with the tools on Jeff's web portal, which made sharing and signing documents simple and easy. Jeff and the people he coordinated with on the appraisal and closing were all pleasant and professional. Everyone involved was fast and efficient and definitely exceeded my expectations by going from application to funding in sixteen days!

    Ive bought and refinanced several times over the last 13 years. I've had good service and bad service along the way and then Ive had Jeff Schmidt. I cant imagine needing a mortgage lender and not reaching out to Jeff. Everything went so smooth from start to finish. I felt like I was his only customer the entire step of the way but after reading these other reviews, it appears he just has a knack for making people feel special! I kept waiting for us to hit the snag and it just never happened. He under promised and over delivered every step of the way. Plus he is just a really nice guy! I work in an industry where customer service is everything and Jeff and Gateway exceeded any expectations I could have had.

    We have never had the process with a lender go so smooth! It was the easiest thing I've ever done. My husband knows the information but i handle all of that paperwork. It was a breeze. Jeff actually cared about us. He helped us through every senario and encouraged us to the best one. Stop with the searching and go with Jeff at Gateway!

    Mr. Jeff Schmidt was an outstanding individual to work with. He was recommended to me by my realtor while buying a home in Midlothian. Jeff found the best mortgage product that fit my situation (even better than what I had in mind) and worked tirelessly to make sure the entire transaction went smoothly. Also the bank that owns their company handled the financing thus saving us additional time and we saved several hours during the closing as we signed the closing docs he was at the table and funded the loan right then and there. The level of customer service with him and his team was outstanding, the quality of their loan product is of the highest level, and the business ethic of this group is beyond reproach. Mr. Jeff looked out for my best interests during the purchase process and also took the time to educate me during each step so I knew precisely what was going on. In such a predatory environment such as real estate and mortgage lending I was blessed to get to know Jeff and get his help with buying a home. He is the guy you want to talk to if you need to buy a home. He will definitely be my first choice should I buy another home.

    We continually come back to Jeff because we trust him and love his customer support during and after the transaction. He is very knowledgeable and will not steer you wrong. I highly recommend him to all my friends and family.

    Jeff Schmidt is not only quick, he's very professional and makes sure all ducks are in a row. He keeps me informed and is easy to work with. This is my second time to use Jeff and there will definitely be a third!

    Jeff Schmidt and his team at Gateway are truly top shelf professionals. Our personal mortgage advisor - Terry Wooten in Waxahachie, TX is a prime example of this professionalism. We have two mortgages with Gateway and love them, dearly.
