Why work with us?

Competitive rates and mortgage expertise are a given but ultimately you will choose your lender based on the kind of experience you expect. We think you should expect excellence which includes expecting your lender to be a socially responsible business that provides good paying jobs to its employees. We hope you will recognize that choosing a local lender means you are supporting a business and people who live, work and dream of a better life in the same communities where you and your family reside.

We respectfully ask that you consider our services and we promise that you will not regret that decision. We will provide you with personalized consultation, excellent communication and when your loan closes our relationship with you is just beginning. We look forward to answering future questions, working with you when you purchase or refinance in the future and hope to have the opportunity to work with your friends and family as well.

Before you choose, you owe it to yourself to get to know us and expect and experience Excellence.


“Working with Knox Mortgage Team was a very positive experience. Steve Knox worked hard to find the appropriate solution for me and my circumstances. I felt at ease and comfortable because I knew he wouldn't put me in a loan that he himself wouldn't take in the same situation. He was straightforward and honest about the process and details. I will use Knox Mortgage Team again and highly recommend this team!” - Andrea G.

I've worked with Steve a few times over the past several years; one was a refinance and the other a new home purchase. He was great to work with each time. Personable, knowledgeable and always available (even when I expected to just leave him a voicemail on a Sunday afternoon). He has an ability to communicate real estate and financial matters to anyone, no matter their level of financial experience/knowledge, while putting them at ease. - Tod H.

Knox Mortgage Team was a most valuable partner, while buying a new home. The owner, Steve Knox, was helpful and responsive at every step of the lending process, and then has been available at any time afterwards for follow-up questions and other lending advice. Steve also is very involved in the local community, and sponsors the The Run of The Mill Road Race, and all of the proceeds are donated to local charities. In the last few years, Steve's events have resulted in over $250,000 being donated directly to the charities. I would personally recommend CFM to anyone who is in the market for a first class lending company. Thank you, Steve, and your wonderful staff, for your great and friendly service. - Richard C.

My husband and I recently refinanced our home with April's help. Her knowledge and expertise made the process go smoothly. She communicated with us on a regular basis and we always knew where we were at in the process and what to expect next. I have been through a few home purchases and a refi previously and this was by far the best experience I've had. I would highly recommend April for any of your mortgage needs! - Cortney and Jason from Marysville

Stephanie Callen over at Columbia Funding has been an awesome resource for all of my clients. Her personality clicks with everyone and she has an abundance or resources to help serve those that I introduced to her. If you are curious about financing options out there, or looking to REFI, Stephanie is the one to help you navigate the market. -Austin S
