Closed purchase loan.
Arial was extremely accessable and knowledgeable about my loan which had particular criteria set up by lenders due to a past short sale noted on my credit record making it more complicated than a normal contract. Her and her team made my transaction easy with no last minute confusion and stress. I highly recommend working with her.  MoreLess

Closed purchase loan. Portland, OR
Ariel was very prompt and patient. She put in many hours presenting us with almost exact calculations off which we could base our purchase decisions. She was available for conversations via email or phone day and evenings during the week and weekend.

Closed purchase loan.
Highlights: Ariel Gunderson saved me $9,000 out of pocket and closed my loan faster than anyone expected, allowing us to move into our new house in time to host our Christmas guests. Added bonus: the GFE was within $10 (yes, TEN) of the final loan! Ariel Gunderson's knowledge of this industry and her professionalism are unmatched. If you are looking for a loan, call her - she knows how to identify and match the right loan with your needs and delivers what she promises.

Details: I had been working with the loan agent that my realtor recommended, but thought I should make at least one call to another loan agent just to ensure that I was receiving the best deal. Fortunately for me, I called Ariel Gunderson. The best loan available through the other agent had me paying all of my PMI out of pocket in order to keep my DTI at the right levels. Ariel was able to find a loan at the same rate, with several hundred dollars lower costs, but didn't require me to pay the $9,000 in prepaid PMI - which is exactly what I had been asking for, but unable to receive from the previous loan agent.

I called Ariel late in the process, but she and her team were still able to process everything so quickly that we were able to move in a week earlier than we expected, giving us a week to prepare our new home for all our out-of-town Christmas guests.

From a transaction point of view, working with Ariel and her team was flawless! Everything went smoothly and quickly. Ariel's proactive approach to communicating with Escrow shaved several days off of the close.

From a personal point of view, I couldn't have been happier with the results that Ariel provided: an unexpected extra week to prepare my new house for Christmas and an extra $9,000 in my bank account!
