  • “Misty was amazing to work with when my partner and I decided to buy a new home. She worked with and for us tirelessly to get the best rate possible. She spent time patiently explaining and clarifying details throughout the process, so we always felt taken care of. Buying a home is a huge and somewhat intimidating step, but we trusted Misty implicitly to look out for us during the process. Misty was there for us every step of the way, and her knowledge and years of experience in the business helped us get our dream home.”

Is getting pre-approved better than getting pre-qualified?

Yes. In today's market, pre-approval is the best route to go. However, if you're in the early stages and are curious on the general range of what you can afford, getting pre-qualified would be a great first step. But once you are serious about looking at homes, we'd recommend getting pre-approved.
