    The loan process was exceptional, Kathy and her team walked us through every step of the way. I was dreading the process we haven't bought a house in over 15 years but Kathy made the process smooth for us

    She made the experience very smooth. She was always available to answer any of my questions. Being a first time home buyer I was very new to the situation and she made it an amazing experience.

    Best customer experience I have experienced. Kathy was efficient in reviewing all options and explained the options clearly. She has a tremendous support staff that was just as caring and efficient. I believe they truly care about their customers and the experience they deliver.

    Kathy is very knowledgeable. She led me step by step through the home buying experience. She was always available for questions - and I had many. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

    Kathy was absolutely wonderful throughout the home buying process. She was always available to answer my various questions. I was truly clueless about the whole process before I went into it. Kathy sent me these helpful videos explaining what step I was on and what was being reviewed behind the scenes along the way. I highly recommend.

    Kathy made the loan application process as easy as possible, and also explained the process clearly so we understood exactly what was happening, and what would happen.

    After some issues with other lenders, this was a very fast and easy process which was very important to me. I will work again with her in the future and will recommend to others..

    I would highly recommend Kathy Tautfest. Do to previous experience with another company I was very reluctant to attempt to buy a home, just because I didn't want the headache and run around. With Gateway and Kathy is wasn't nothing like that. She told me what she needed from the start and kept me updated through the process. I was very surprised how easy she made it.

    Kathy Tautfest and Gateway Mortgage Group were absolutely fantastic during our home-buying process. My husband and I were first time home buyers and had a lot of questions about the process, but Kathy helped us through everything and we didn't have a single issue. She was patient, understanding, and very proactive in helping us buy our house. She answered phone calls and e-mails in a timely manner and was always a joy to talk to. Highly recommend!!
