We were very lucky to get referred to Nate. He is the best. Super patient with all the millions of questions and the anxiety we had of purchasing during such a tough time. Nate made the process much easier to bear. We are very appreciative of all the work he has done for us. Highly recommend him for purchase and refinance.

As a first time home buyer, this process can be a bit scary and overwhelming. Nate and team were awesome to work with… very knowledgeable, responsive, timely, professional, friendly and supportive throughout the whole process.   They really made the process as smooth as possible. Top notch team and all around impressive. Would definitely recommend Nate to anyone who is looking to purchase a home and look forward to having the opportunity to partner with him again in the future.

Nate and Cathy saved the day! If it wasn't for their persistence, overall knowledge and perhaps network, our family wouldn't have been able to obtain our dream home. They were so professional and communication throughout the entire process was phenomenal. All timelines were met and closing was a breeze. Will definitely recommend them to all of our friends and family.

Nate Newsom was a godsend during the entire mortgage process. Not only did he manage to find me a (substantially) better deal than my current bank was offering, but he did it so quickly and made the whole process feel easy. A mortgage miracle worker! I would recommend him to anyone and will definitely use him again.

My friends and I approached Nate last fall about our idea to buy a house on shares. Although this seemed difficult to us, it wasn't with Nate. He met with us discussed our situations. To Nate it was not an odd circumstance at all. It took some creativity on his part to arrange financing. He came up with different options for us and assisted us through the whole process. I would highly recommend Nate to anyone. He did a great job for us and we are continuing to enjoy our new home. Mike Huser

I have had bad experiences with loan officers and lenders in the past that left me feeling discriminated and taken advantage of. However, it has been different with Nate. I have worked with him twice and has been remarkable! The level of attentiveness, effort, and professionalism surpassed my expectations. Used his enormous knowledge to address any questions and concerns I had in a timely manner. He also went above and beyond to get the best loan in a fast, smooth and straightforward manner. Nate and Cathy were available by phone and email throughout the process. Highly recommended for anyone getting a new home, refinancing or requiring other mortgage related loan services. Thanks again Nate and Cathy. You are awesome and God bless you!!

Great to work with! We are first time home owners and Nate helped us at every step when it came to pre qualifications, pre-approval, number crunching and breaking down the closing processes. Thank you Nate for the phone calls & keeping us calm, reassured and well informed!

I’ve had horrible experiences with loan officers in the past that left me feeling taken advantage of. Well, not this time! Nate was such a breath of fresh air and has renewed my faith in the home buying process! Now, this process was more complicated than usual due to the current market. Rising rates and declining home values had us unsure if this was the right time to even consider purchasing a home!? Nate went above and beyond, by reassuring us, and settled our nerves countless times while he and his loan processor “Cathy” seamlessly guided us through the entire loan process. He answered all of our numerous questions, promptly and thoroughly at all times of the day no matter how silly they were. It’s humorous thinking how he must have been so relieved when our loan closed!! His patience, professionalism and knowledge in his profession is in abundance. But to really sum up my experience with Nate Newsom, he’s just a really good, “down to earth” guy that has a great big heart, and he genuinely cares about his clients during and after the loan closes. You’re the Man Nate, you have me and my family's business for life, I can’t thank you enough!

I have had the pleasure with working alongside Nate as his rep at United Wholesale Mortgage for many years now. I've worked with hundreds of loan officers and brokers all across America. I can confidently state that Nate is the epitome of an elite loan officer across multiple dimensions. Not only is he a true professional, he is also a genuinely great guy. It's not surprising his client's love him. It only takes one phone call with Nate to understand you're not dealing with your average mortgage professional. What truly sets Nate apart is his relentless pursuit of perfection in terms of delivering an unforgettable client experience. His attention to detail and mortgage knowledge are top notch. Few have a more detailed and thorough up front prequalification process. Nate makes zero mistakes. A preapproval issued by Nate is gold. Any client he says qualifies up front, truly qualifies. Nearly 99% of his purchase loans reach the finish line. Borrowers can shop for their dream home with confidence, and his realtor partners share the same confidence in knowing they can look forward to a smooth and on-time closing with minimal stress for all parties involved. Nate's work ethic is nearly unmatched. The man always seems to be working, while simultaneously making you feel like you're his most important person he's talking to. He answers any phone call, email or text with the sense of urgency that few professionals can replicate. It's been an honor to witness Nate's rise to becoming one of the most elite purchase loan officers in not just the State of California, but the entire nation. His success is no surprise to me whatsoever, and I sense he is only getting started.

I first used Nate almost 20 years ago and again just recently to finance a home purchase in Folsom. I was nervous and unsure if I would be able to qualify as I had been out of the county for quite some time. Nate again came through and helped me get into my dream home. Nate is honest, patient and an expert in his field. Additionally, I found his rates and fees to be the best around. I strongly recommend Nate and his team for any home financing needs you may have. Sincerely, Brandon Vidrio

Nate financed my first home over 19 years ago, and I've used his services many times since. Nate is trustworthy, reliable and quick to answer all questions clearly and concisely. Additionally, he's always gone the extra mile to ensure I'm getting the best rate available. These are the reasons I've referred him to all my friends and family over the years. I intend to use Nate for all my future financing needs, and you should too if you're looking to the best rates and most importantly someone that has your best interest in mind and will be there for you over the years.

Walking into home buying process as a first time home buyer can be complex and scary. We worked with Nate on our first ever house and process couldn't have been more smoother. He offered explanation at every corner and turn in the process. Nate is completely transparent and prompt. No hidden costs in CTC. Straight forward to the point. If you're looking for a lender, I highly recommend Nate. Fast, easy and reliable. Nothing less than 5 stars! Really would like to thank Nate for helping us secure our dream home.
