This was our first time using Groundwork and the experience was exceptional! Our Kansas City contact Brett guided us every step of the way, ensured we had all documents submitted on time, answered all of our questions, and called regularly just to check in.

Purchasing a home in the middle of a pandemic is very stressful, however Groundwork Mortgage conducted business is a very easy and professional manner. They helped us through the tire process and eased our fears. I would definitely use them if we ever purchase another new home.

Groundwork was fantastic to work with when purchasing my new McBride home. As a first-time homebuyer I had endless questions about the process, financing, insurance, closing and so much more. Jackson, who I worked with, was so patient with my constant barrage of questions and emails, incredibly responsive every time I reached out to him (even with questions after closing), and made sure I felt informed and comfortable with every decision I made during the lending process. I can’t speak highly enough of the personal touches that really went a long way in making me feel understood and informed from the moment of our first phone more

I had a great experience with Groundwork Mortgage while closing on my home with McBride. Jonathan Pickens was always responsive, even on weekends, vacation, holidays, etc. I really appreciate the ease of the process with them.

I have had the best experience with Groundwork Mortgage. They have made the mortgage process a smooth and stress-free experience. My loan officer was always quick to respond to my questions, and was able to process my information very quickly. I am very pleased with their service.
