Alex and his team at Carlson Mortgage are absolutely wonderful to work with. We have worked on several transactions for mutual clients, and everything went smoothly, closed on time, and my buyers got a grate rate! I will definitely refer business to Carlson in the future!

We just closed on our second home with Carlson Mortgage. Both Alex and Greg have been great, and they have made the whole process so easy and smooth. We hope that we are now in our "forever" home, but we'll be sure to use their services again, if we ever buy another home. Highly recommend them!

I had a great time working with Alex and Greg to buy my first property. They both went way above and beyond with the customer service, as well as the follow-up, which made my whole house buying process as smooth as possible. If you want the best service, knowledge and exceptional service, Alex Gorodinky and Greg Shmulevich are who you call.

When it came time for me to buy a home, Alex and his team at Carlson Mortgage came in highly recommended by my real estate agent. They guided me through the whole process from start to finish. Alex is competent and responsive, always available to answer any mortgage questions that I had and very attentive to my needs as a first-time home buyer. I got a very competitive rate (without any fees or points) and the closing documents were provided to me in a timely fashion. I will be back when I am ready to buy my next home!

I've been working with Carlson Mortgage since 2019, on a number of mortgage transactions. Not only are they local & have great rates but they don't charge any broker fees and are extremely tech-savvy. They process loans in-house and it's never an issue to close within 30 days. I also love the fact that their loan officers always attend all closings! I highly recommend them to all my clients!

Worked with Alex and Greg on the loan for our new home. I would recommend this team to anyone. And I can promise you that you won't find better service with any lender (local or national)! If I had the money to buy another house next week, I'd be calling Alex tonight!

Alex and Greg are wonderful to work with. They really know what they're doing and are prompt and thorough in their responses to any questions one sends their way. It was my first time purchasing a house, so you can imagine how clueless and lost I felt initially, and their levels of knowledge and professionalism gave me complete confidence in all the proceedings. They worked flawlessly with my realtor ensuring everything was taken care of with clear communication. Further, after consulting other homeowners in my life, they got me a stellar interest rate on my loan. I can't recommend Carlson Mortgage enough and will most definitely be using them in any future home buying I do in the area.

I am a first-time home buyer and Carlson Mortgage provided me with the mortgage for my recent home purchase. I was initially pre-approved at another bank and my realtor suggested that I contact Carlson Mortgage. I worked with Alex as my loan officer and he helped me through the whole process, from pre-approval to closing. All of my questions were answered in a very timely manner. Alex found a special first-time home buyer program for me, with only a 3% down payment, a low interest rate and no lender fees at all. I even received a $400 cash credit incentive to offset some of my other closing costs. I'm very satisfied with my experience at Carlson Mortgage.

We had very good mortgage experience. Very responsive to questions and concerns as it took us 5 offers on different houses to finally get our new house in a very competitive market. We've recommended them to 2 sets of friends since closing 2 months ago.

Alex at Carlson Mortgage has been essential at securing us a very advantageous refinancing rate efficiently no broker fees.

Alex at Carlson Mortgage provided me with a mortgage a year ago, when I was buying my first home. Now I just refinanced to lower the interest rate and Carlson Mortgage paid for all of my closing costs. I got a low interest rate and the loan was closed quickly and without needing an appraisal. I would use the company and the loan officer again and I 100% recommend their services.
