Frequently Asked Questions
Whether you’re a First Time Homebuyer, or a seasoned vet there are always certain questions that pop up with regards to the home loan lending process. Banner Mortgage loves helping! If you don’t see an answer to your question, please feel free to ask here!
What kind of clients do you work with?
Banner Mortgage works with all types of borrowers but we specialize in USDA Rural Housing Loans, VA Jumbo Loans and First Time Homebuyer loans in Colorado.
What is your turn around time?
Banner Mortgage aims for the fastest turn around times possible and can provide rush services when necessary but we typically average a 30-45 day turnaround. A variety of factors affect turnaround time including how quickly borrowers can obtain and turnover the required documents, and any additional documents that Underwriting may request once the loan is being reviewed for approval.
Do you work with First Time Homebuyers?
At Banner Mortgage we absolutely love working with First Time Homebuyers! Part of our mission is to provide the highest quality of customer service to each borrower. What that means to us is ensuring you as the borrower understand each facet of your loan, including what each of the fees are, the terms of the loan and what each disclosure document means. Our biggest goal is to ensure our First Time Homebuyers are 100% comfortable with the terms of the loan, and that they understand each facet of it.

Lisa is extremely knowledgeable and had unlimited patience with us and our many questions relating to our VA loan. We would definitely recommend her to everyone as she was very personable and made us feel like part of her family. She is very efficient and we did not feel like an excessive amount of paperwork was required during our loan process. Lisa kept us up to date on an almost daily basis with our loan progress and our loan was actually closed a lot earlier than we were expecting due to her personal attention to detail. We have been through the loan process before and it was such a horrible experience with all of the hoops we had to jump through that we were not looking forward to going through it again. However, we can honestly say that this was a very painless process and we were pleasantly surprised at how few additional documents were requested. We kept expecting to have to come up with a lot more documentation, especially at the last minute, but it never happened. Everything just fell into place and it was so easy and non-stressful for us. When we sell this home to move onto our next investment, we will not feel a sense of dread that we have to finance another home because we will of course call Lisa.Charlie & Sandy Axt
Ideal service and personal attention. Lisa was great to work with, and helped us get the money we needed to make changes in our home. She truly knew what we needed, and how to get the funding together. Thanks again Lisa.Scott Willis
