As out of state buyers, my wife and I relied solely upon reviews. Carlson Mortgage per review leaves the others in complete envy. Form their professionalism to clients out of state we were impressed from our onset. Our occasional meetings were through and no questions left unanswered. Even at the title company we were respected as if we were their number one clients.
Save yourself some stress and look no further than Carlson Mortgage. They’re top notch professionals with your comfort and trust at their forefront

I used Alex Gorodinsky and his company to finance my home purchase. My girlfriend recommended Alex and said that she has been using him for her purchases and refinances since 2009. I enjoyed working with Alex and Carlson: both receiving a good rate and the nice personal touch that he provided. I never had any questions that went unanswered and he took his time to explain everything. A very smooth process from start to finish and Alex will be my go-to person for future mortgages

Alex at Carlson Mortgage and his processor Greg were great to work with. As a first time home buyer I had a lot of questions, they answered them quickly and without making me feel bad for asking. They also explained the whole process in detail before we got started and answered questions I didn't even know I should have. Maybe most importantly they got me a great rate!

We found Carlson Mortgage after doing extensive online searches as first-time home buyers. The incredible five-star reviews immediately caught our eye. Alex went above and beyond for us from the moment we first sat down with him. It became clear after our first meeting that not only would we be saving money (he came in $3,000 less than our other mortgage option!), but we'd be getting personalized service and someone to guide us through this stressful process. We really couldn't have asked for better service throughout this process and are thankful we found Carlson Mortgage.

This was our first mortgage expierence, but Alex G. at Carlson Mortgage made the process smooth, with no surprises or hidden fees. He is very knowelegeable, and willing to explain every detail. He also made our closing quick and painless. He and Greg are truly the best in town.

These guys are simply the best! I hate money, financing and all things capitalism but Alex and Greg at Carlson made the whole experience manageable and pleasant. As a first time home-owner I needed all the help I could get and they were very helpful, knowledgeable and kind. A++++!

I found Carlson Mortgage when doing a search for local mortgage professionals on Yelp. I did their online preapproval on the website. Within 24 hours I received a call from a loan officer, who scheduled a face-to-face meeting to go over the mortgage process and some sample closing worksheets, which I appreciated as a first-time home buyer. I even received a realtor recommendation and was able to negotiate a very good deal on my first home. I would use them again in the future, if I ever need to.

My wife and I contacted Carlson Mortgage when our realtor suggested that we get another quote for our purchase loan. Their quote was better and they made the home buying experience a lot less stressful than we anticipated. Very friendly and professional from beginning to end. I was able to always get a hold of them to have my questions answered. Very happy with the service provided.

I found Carlson Mortgage online when searching for local mortgage brokers. They popped up as number one on the list for Missouri and now I know why. I was working with another bank and wanted a 'second opinion'. The loan officer that I dealt with was very personable and took his time to educate me, going beyond my expectations. He analyzed the loan estimate from the other bank and his quote had a slightly lower interest rate and $800 less in fees. Unfortunately, an appraisal was already ordered by the other lender, so I was too far in the process to switch. Even then, the loan officer stayed in touch to help me navigate the process with the other lender, all the way until closing, to ensure that my home buying experience is stress-free! I will use him from now on for my future home endeavors and will refer everyone purchasing a home to them. If you are looking for professional honest loan officers, Carlson Mortgage would be the place to go!

We've worked with Carlson Mortgage on several occasions - twice for a purchase and once for a refinance. Besides having the lowest rates EVER (and we got quite a few quotes the very first time), their loan officers are always available to answer any questions that we have and do so patiently and promptly. We've never had to pay any lender fees or points and they don't outsource their processing, so there was not a processing fee involved. All of our transactions closed within 30 days and one of the refinances actually closed in about 20 days. Also, one of the purchases was done with us being out of state. We were able to sign everything electronically and do a power-of-attorney closing, without even having to fly to Missouri. They are the company that we can always trust and they have our business for life.

I have used Carlson Mortgage now twice. Once for our home purchase (30yr conv) and just now again for a 15yr refi conventional. I literally emailed Alex every 3 months checking in with interest rates and he always got right back to me. He was able to show us we could even do a 15yr when we never thought that was a possibility. He got us an amazing rate with an excellent lender AND we closed effortlessly in about 20 days start to finish. I was always updated and never felt out of the loop or unsure of our decision to make the leap to a 15yr. Alex is so knowledgeable. So happy we found him! Will recommend for life! Thanks again, Alex!

This is my second home I have purchased using Carlson Mortgage as the lending agent. My first purchase was for a rental property, my second for a single family home. Each time, Alex Gorodinsky walked me through the process, addressed my concerns, and made sure I understood and felt comfortable every step of the way. I wouldn't recommend anyone else. Thanks Alex!

I cannot help but praise Alex Gorodinsky and his team for their attention and counsel, and for making my dream come true. I purchased a new home a few months ago and obtained my mortgage financing through Carlson Mortgage. I found them by doing a Google search and choosing the company based on their amazing online reviews. My experience with them was highly positive and definitely exceeded my expectations. The loan officer Alex was very thorough, reliable, and honest and walked me through every step involved with buying a home. He was always available to answer all of my questions and made my life incredibly easier and less stressful during the whole process. The mortgage processor Greg, who was assigned to my file, was also very caring and helpful and assisted me with all the necessary paperwork. I got a very good interest rate, my deal closed on time and I am very grateful that I found Carlson Mortgage to help me with my loan approval. Alex and Greg were very professional, pleasant and responsive. I highly recommend them!

This was my first home loan and I had a lot of questions. No matter when I called/emailed, day or night, Alex or Greg got back to me very quickly and were patient and knowledgeable in answering my questions. They handled everything without a hitch. Alex personally came to my closing and walked me through everything. Could not have asked for a better experience! I would recommend Carlson Mortgage to anyone looking to get a mortgage!

I recently got my loan from Carlson Mortgage. I got the lowest rate from all local brokers. Loan process with Carlson Mortgage was super easy. Loan commitment was done 3 weeks before closing day. Thanks for Alex's great work. It was my first loan, so I had tons of questions. Alex always answered my questions quickly and professionally, some times even replied to my emails late at night. He made the whole loan process with no trouble at all. I highly recommend Alex and Carlson Mortgage!

I recently worked with Alex Gorodinsky as the lender in the successful purchase of a property for my client. Alex did a wonderful job and kept us up to date on the loan's progress throughout the transaction and even showed up at closing to go over all the closing loan documents with my buyer.

My family has gotten several loans from Carlson Mortgage over the years and I was referred to them for a pre-approval to buy a home. The loan officer, Alex, was prompt and very responsive--available 24/7 to answer any questions I had about the home buying process (and I had a lot). Thanks to Alex, what started out as a daunting process became something I could comfortably and confidently handle. Plus his company's interest rates were extremely competitive. I would highly recommend Carlson Mortgage when you are purchasing your next home.

My husband and I used Carlson Mortgage for our last 3 mortgages - purchase, refinance and now a new purchase. Alex Gorodinsky and his team always took good care of us. They helped us navigate the mortgage process, offered a low interest rate and never charged us any mortgage broker fees. They are very quick, detail-oriented and responsive. The processor (Greg) was always available to answer questions, during and after work hours. Highly recommend!

It has been our pleasure to use Carlson Mortgage again for our refinance. Alex Gorodinsky really made our entire process very easy and we refinanced our loan into a low-rate one and paid no closing costs. Alex is very professional, knowledgeable and patient. We are happy repeat clients!

In my work, I have met hundreds of Mortgage Brokers. Many do only enough to get by; sending information on lenders a client could get online.

Not so Alex Gorodinsky.

Though my son was a first time homebuyer, he did not have stellar credit. I helped look for someone willing to work with him to get his first mortgage at less than a sky-high rate. I'm delighted I found Alex.

Alex worked very hard to find the perfect mortgage. He found my son a standard mortgage at a low rate. The deal was done quickly and professionally.

Alex was available to answer questions at all times, gathered the required information quickly and walked us through the whole process.

Alex was honest, professional and even recommended the wonderful Realtor (Irina Wagner of The Agency) who helped find the perfect house in only a week.

Closing was swift and I can't say enough about the excellent work done by Alex. If you are in search of a mortgage, you can do no better than Alex Gorodinsky.
