Kelsi Jo Smith

Mortgage Loan Originator Gateway Mortgage Group NMLS 459141;
Proactive. Simple. Mortgage Lending.

With over 13 years of experience in the mortgage industry I have been able to familiarize myself with loan products that allow me to be attuned to the needs of my clients and referral partners. Everyone has unique story, what might be good for one is not necessarily the best for another. Through knowledge of FHA, VA, Conventional, USDA Rural Development loans in addition to First Time Homebuyer Grants, I am able to hear that story and accommodate that need. With the experience of processing and underwriting underneath me I work well with my processors and underwriters on getting your loan done efficiently and in a timely manner. My joy of knowing all sides of the mortgage industry makes it possible for me to communicate constantly throughout the loan process, in turn making the process go smoother. S

Kelsi was exceptional in helping me navigate through the refinancing process with my house. She was available at all hours of the day and answered all my questions from a depth of knowledge with clarity and grace. She will be my first go to person for financing a new house in the future.

Two years ago I contacted Kelsi to refinance our home. She came highly recommended. At that time it did not make the most sense. With the current interest rates I thought I would revisit the process. Kelsi made such a lasting impact that I sought her help again. She explained every step of the process and answered all questions I had. When the loan process hit snags she navigated those and was encouraging. Kelsi made sure this loan went through and I am very grateful.

Kelsi went above and beyond to help us. She is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. She was easy to get in contact with if we had questions. We were undecided on multiple pieces of our refinance and she worked through each scenario with us pointing out pros and cons. In the end Kelsi helped us to find what would work best for us. She expedited the process and went above and beyond to get our refinance done quickly. Very friendly and professional to work with!!

Kelsi was WONDERFUL! She walked me through the entire process of financing step by step. I was kept in the loop through every step of the way. I never had any questions to ask since she had already provided the answers before I had a chance to think of the questions.
Closing was a breeze. My closer stated that Gateway Mortgage had the easiest paperwork in town.
I would highly recommend Kelsi and Gateway Mortgage to anyone looking at financing a home.

Kelsi Smith was great to work with from the beginning. We were able to complete our refinancing all online or over the phone. She was very good at walking us through each step of the process and letting us know what to expect. She was very professional and fun to work with. If we needed anything we were able to reach out to her after hours and she would answer every question that we had. I would highly recommend contacting Kelsi if you are looking at purchasing a home or refinancing. She will work hard for you and provide you the best service possible.
