I really can't recommend Northstar Mortgage enough. Leigh and Kara were quickly responsive to my many questions, and as a first-time homebuyer they... made this whole process extremely easy to understand and as stress-free as possible to move through. Not only is the team at Northstar well informed, capable, and efficient, they're also incredibly friendly and kind - they worked with me around the closing dates and I even managed to close a week early thanks to their efforts and support. Long story short, Northstar Mortgage is awesome, and I know I'll be coming back to this team for my future mortgage needs!read more

10/10 highly recommend. Brian and Kara are a great team and were instrumental in getting our dream home! Brian kept us informed and provided clear... expectations for our financing, answered all of our questions, and always followed up. Kara kept us moving forward and even stayed late on a Friday night so that we were still able to close on our original closing date. Couldn't have done it without them. Thank you for all the hardwork you guys did to get us into a our first home!!read more

I have known Mike Virgie for over 10 years. I have completed two refinancing loans with Mike and Northstar Mortgage over the past few years. Mike's... diligence is on point, and he clearly explains every detail and step during the process. Most importantly, Mike is super knowledgeable about the industry and current market trends. He provides insight beyond his knowledge of mortgages. If you would like to have peace of mind and feel confident your loan process will be done correctly, I highly recommend you to use Mike Virgie. He truly has your best interest at heart.read more

The smoothest process I’ve ever had! Mike Virgie was absolutely amazing. Every communication was clear, timely, and if I missed something, he... followed up with me instead of just waiting(which I’ve had happen in the past with different lenders). Definitely my go-to for the next purchase or refinance!read more

I had an absolutely wonderful experience with this company. One of their employees, Danielle, went above and beyond to make sure my family got... everything we needed squared away so we could purchase our first home. She guided me through everything that needed to be done and answered any question that I had. Even after we closed on the house, I had some follow-up questions and reached out and she was always willing to provide me with an answer or find me somebody who could help. I highly recommend this company.read more

She was extremely helpful and encouraging during the entire process and it was a pleasure to work with her and Northstar Mortgage Group! I also want to include a very special shout-out to Kristina Emery, our loan processor. Her patience and enthusiasm was a shining light during the lending process. Thank you!!read more

Leigh and her team are FANTASTIC! We didn't make it easy for them, either.We first purchased our home through Northstar Mortgage. I don't know how... she did it, but Leigh was able to secure financing for us to buy our dream home.5 years later, we refinanced to do some improvements. They were fast, friendly and knowledgeable. Leigh answered my questions even while recovering from Covid.When we were out of town for the closing date, Leigh knocked it out of the park by sending a travelling notary to our resort in Myrtle Beach.I thoroughly enjoyed working with Leigh and her team and I highly recommend them!read more
