Cheri Wickham | Broker/Realtor at 1st Choice Properties
Ken has been the lender for several of my clients now and he is fantastic to work with. I am confident when I send a client to him that he will respond quickly and stay in close contact with them and me during the entire process. He has a knack for putting first-time homebuyers at ease, and my more seasoned buyers love him as well! No matter the amount of the loan, he treats all clients the same. I highly recommend Ken for all of your mortgage needs. He goes above and beyond the call of duty and is a true pleasure to work with!
William Donohue | Regional Fixed Operations Manager at Sonic Automotive
Ken Land did a great job for me on my first mortgage. He made it as stress free as possible. He did such a good job, I have ask him to help us with a refinance.
Taren Pecha | Broker/Realtor at Coldwell Banker United, Realtors
I had the pleasure of working with Ken on a recent transaction. The result was the smoothest transaction I’ve had all year. Ken stays on top of things, keeps myself and the client informed, all done in a most professional and timely manner. He makes any issue a non-issue by handling things quickly and efficiently. Ken’s experience and attention to detail is evident in his work ethic. It’s great to have a business partner that stays in contact throughout the transaction and after. I will work with Ken again and recommend Ken to my clients for purchases and refinances. Thanks, Ken!
