MY PHILOSOPHY

During my career I’ve focused heavily on providing better communication than people find in this industry. I believe superior communication up-front in my planning and strategy phase eliminates errors, costly surprises and last minute delays typically found in most banks and many mortgage companies. Continuing communication throughout the rest of the process brings my clients peace of mind and confidence they’re getting what they want. People tell me my communication focus has made their home-buying or refinancing experience far less stressful than any of their past experiences. They also tell their friends, family, and others to contact me, which is the highest compliment I ever receive.

My special thanks to those who let me help them and their friends!

MY BACKGROUND

I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia and started my career as a mortgage loan officer during my senior year at the University of Utah while finishing my Business Finance degree. I met the love of my life at the U and we now have a growing family! I believe I’m unusually service minded and very active in local community and church programs – I enjoy offering this same attitude to my clients. With experience as a professional cliff diver, amateur exhibition-style snow and wake boarder I’m not afraid of challenging situations!! I loooove hearing my clients say at closing “everyone else said they couldn’t do what you’ve done”.

 

Thank you for making the events leading up to our wedding day SO much less stressful. We're still so appreciative of all your help and are supper happy with the terms of our refi and payment.

I really appreciated the way you guys were able to expedite everything and work around a wedding, and honeymoon. It was so wonderful to know the progress along the way when I would get emails regarding the status of the loan, that was very helpful. You guys were so fantastic to work with, and it really felt like a personal interest was taken along the way. I didn’t get tossed around to other people, I always knew who I was working with and that was very great. Thanks again, I have been telling everyone how great you guys were!

Three for three! I wanted to give my appreciation again for the outstanding service you performed in the refinance of my home! Three years ago I was worried I would not have the time to pull off selling and purchasing the home I wanted. I was then first introduced to yourself by my realtor and was amazed at how quickly (and painless for me) pulled together everything needed for the closing of my old home and then the mortgage on my new home. I did not have to worry about anything except how to move into my new home since the transactions you performed went so smoothly! Then last November I married my beautiful wife and we wanted to immediately merge our life's together selling her home and refinancing my home with her name on the new mortgage to make it our home together. Having worked with yourself before and was so impressed I gave you a call to assist in the new mortgage. And just as before you pulled through locking in a great rate along with all the extra work required to add my wife to the mortgage which was not easy. Thanks again so much Kit in the original mortgages a few years back and the recent refinance. I will be referencing you whenever possible due to the outstanding service you provided me with.

Kit Bate was awesome at helping me get a mortgage! Kit stood by me as it took a little over a year to qualify for a mortgage due to complicated credit issues. He never gave up on me and gave me guidance on how I could raise my credit score. Once we were ready to close on our mortgage Kit's assistant was exceptional at walking us through the whole process and was very prompt in replying to all our questions and explaining everything we needed to do to close. Kit was able to get us a great rate which was greatly appreciated considering my prior credit history. I will definitely use Kit for any future mortgages I will ever need and would recommend him to everyone I know.

I was referred to Kit by a friend, and I am quite pleased with what Kit has done.  He has worked to ensure that things were relatively smooth for the entire process, and he was willing to make sure that all items involved with the closing would work around my schedule.

"I appreciated Kit helping me finish our financing when we were on such a tight schedule. He was very responsive and helpful and I felt like I could trust him."
Matthew W. – Salt Lake City, UT
Working with Kit was great. I had to do very little work on my end. He found the lender, filed the paperwork, and got the loan set up. All I had to do was sign the papers. I found him and his team very trustworthy, and I had no worries about getting the loan approved. I am very appreciative of all the hard work and focus he put into helping me buy my first home. Thanks again for the help!!!

I have no problem sharing about Kit! Our experience was very good with him. He answered all of my questions with expertise, and never put any amount of pressure one way or another on what decisions we should make. He really knows his stuff! I loved how on top of everything he was, and informed us of all the things we needed to know. Every last detail was explained simply, and with kindness. I loved how he handled every bit of this huge process. I would suggest him to every future homeowner I know!

It was easy working with Kit. I had a bad experience working with the Bank trying to get a re-fi done. I spoke with Kit about my frustration in trying to re-fi through the bank. I came to realize that working with a Mortgage Broker is the way to go. Kit fought for me and got my appraisal where it needed to be. After that, it was smooth sailing. I would recommend Kit to anyone trying to get a mortgage. He got it done vs. the bank NOT GETTING IT DONE. Mission Complete. cheers

I worked for a Title Agency and did the policies and commitments. I saw A LOT of Mortgage Brokers, Lenders and Realtors walk through our doors over 6+ years and few people had the amount of repeat clients that Kit did. And his deals were always clean and consistent. And on an even better note he knows how to make people feel at ease and I think that's why we became fast friends. I am just writing to say thank you Kit for being such a trustworthy person. It means the world to me that I can send my family and friends to you knowing you will give them honesty, respect and experience. Your integrity is the reason why we refer anyone we can to you.
