  • What Kari's clients are saying:

    Kari has impressed me and my husband infinitely. She worked wonderfully with my realtor and kept all of us in the loop for the whole process. She was the only lender that was actually willing to put in the work with my husband’s limited credit with manual underwriting. She was the only one who didn’t just look at his credit and take the easy way out to turn us down. She has gone above and beyond five star service and I would be more than happy to be a reference for her services. Kari made even the boring, yucky paperwork exciting with her outgoing and positive attitude. My husband and I are now first-time home owners thanks to her. You can’t go wrong with Kari Zurn. Keep up the good work!
