5 Star Google Review My fiancé and I just have to say David Swanson and his team are fantastic and were nothing short of a pleasure to work with! Being in our position, we were first-time-home-buyers so of course we had the excitement, but also a little nervousness--this was a huge milestone and a big financial investment for us. Nonetheless, Swanson not only took the time to educate us through the process, but also made it reassuring and fun for how overwhelming the situation can be. Swanson and his team also kept us informed and up-to-date with constant communication—they are all very easy to contact and are timely with their responses as well. Not only is Swanson analytical and thorough with his numbers, but he and his team also take the time to personally get to know you! This better helped our situation because we were able to devise a plan that we could execute that would put us in the best position as possible. Swanson truly made this a humbling experience and his compassion and dedication is unmatched. Through the whole process, and what could be a grueling for some, ours was seamless and our experience was nothing but amazing!! We are so happy with our purchase and our chance to work with Swanson. We highly recommend David Swanson to family, friends, and even to you! =)

I want to thank Dave and Elaine, for making our closing go smoothly. My wife and I, have been working with MSI Mortgage for 30 years. Dave takes the time to make sure he matches you with the best lender and best rate ! We asked him if he knew a lawyer in the area, his recommendation turned out to be a great attorney. I was also looking for a roofer and gutter guy, and Dave said he had used this guy, and said he does very good work. I contacted the contractor, and it turned out to be a great deal. I would highly recommend MSI Mortgage to find you the best deal.He takes the time to find out what your needs are, and works with you, no matter what your financial situation is. He can also work remotely, to sign documents through a secure documents method. Thanks again for all your help. Adrian & Sue

David and his team at MSI are fantastic!! We are about to close on our first home and David has been with us every step of the way. With this being our first home purchase we had no idea what to expect and where to really start when applying for a mortgage. Within 24 hours of my first reaching out to him, David had scheduled and spent a couple of hours with us on a Saturday morning Zoom call to discuss everything...he walked through the process step by step. When it came time to apply for the mortgage, David (and Sara) made it so simple for us. They provided a step by step checklist of what we needed to provide them and when they needed everything. If we had any questions or concerns about the process, he was one email, text or phone/video call away. David and the MSI team have substantial mortgage expertise and were extremely helpful in the loan application process. Highly recommend to any homebuyers.

Zillow Review: 5 Stars Above and Beyond I am extremely appreciative to all of the time that Dave and Elaine took to make my dream of home ownership a reality. Dave spent a great amount of time outlining the home buying process and keeping me up to date on the next steps. As a first time home buyer it was reassuring to have a company that personalized the home buying experience and both Elaine and Dave went above and beyond to address any questions or concerns that arose. They often responded immediately to my inquires even after hours and on weekends. They went to great lengths coordinating all the details and even my realtor was impressed by their attention to detail. MSI Mortgage treated me like family. I always felt safe knowing that they always were thinking ahead and looking out for my best interests.

A huge thanks to Dave with all his help with buying our first home. My husband and I had no idea what to expect . When we first meet with Dave he went over everything and made sure we understood. I could call or email Dave at any time and he would respond within a couples of hours. Also a huge thanks to Elaine for all her help with getting all the paperwork together so we could close earlier. Both Dave and Elaine made the process of buying a house a lot easier . Michelle and Alejandro

Friendly, patient, reliable, and trustworthy I worked with David Swanson for over a year while we searched for our perfect home. We interrupted his vacations and Sunday afternoons to get in offers, but Dave always answered our call, always got us what we needed on time and never once made us feel we were a we were a burden during such a stressful period. He became a friend and advisor, offering the best advice and encouragement along the way. He works quickly and accurately-- got us a competitive interest rate with a reputable lender. All this with a shorter-than-average clear to close deadline. I will miss working with him, and if I ever buy a house again, you can bet he will be hearing from me.

Zillow Review: made the experience educational and enjoyable. I went into buying a house knowing absolutely nothing, David sat me down and made sure I understood every aspect of buying a house and he made it very easy to understand. I can now say with confidence my next home buying experience will be less stressful with the things that David taught me, he worked night and day to get me the right loan for me at an amazing rate, he made sure all my documents were in order and submitted on time. I cannot recommend him enough, if he is still doing in business next time I'm buying a house i can guarantee I will be using him again.

Zillow Review: Highly Recommended My husband and I worked with Dave for the past few months in buying our first home, and we have nothing but great things to say about him! Everything was done on time, he was always in contact with us (even responded to my late Sunday night e-mails), and the whole process went so smoothly! I was so nervous at first, and really didn't know much about the loan process or what to expect. Dave educated us, made us feel comfortable, and made sure we understood everything that was happening. Dave is so kind and we would both highly recommend to anyone looking to buy a home!!! Thank you so much Dave!!!!!!! LOAN STATUSClosed: Apr 2018 LOAN TYPE: Purchase CLOSE ON TIME: Yes

As first time home buyers, we had a lot to learn along the way and Dave took the time to explain it all. Not only was he quick to respond, but would make himself available at any time of day to accommodate us. He is professional and an expert in his field. Working with David truly enhanced our home buying experience and we would recommend him without hesitation. LOAN STATUS Closed: Oct 2016 LOAN TYPE: Purchase CLOSE ON TIME: Yes

Mr. Swanson is hands down the best choice we made! He really is a teacher when it comes to walking you through the whole process of home buying. He answers our questions by text or email at all hours of the day or night, one night it was Sunday at 930 and he responded right away. Finding a home is the easy part, you know what you want, it's the mortgage process that is so intimidating for most people. He will teach you everything you need to know and you can trust he's finding you the best deal when it comes to the mortgage because he does all the legwork. I just recommended him to a friend that is now looking for a home. He is definitely someone you want on your team!

David Swanson is a VERY professional man, and makes you feel very comfortable. He is straight forward and honest. He explained everything and dumbed everything down when we needed him to. David is very much into his work, he is quick to respond, and has great communication skills. Not choosing David Swanson would be a big mistake. 5 star rated!
