Buying a home felt like a far off dream for my husband and I. I hesitated for even contact Tyler, but knew that he had helped at least 5 of my other extended family members with their financing, so I decided to take a chance and reach out to him. We now own our first house!

What I valued most about Tyler is not just that he's an expert in what he does (which he is), or that he has incredible standards for service (we're talking an email response within a half hour most of the time). What mattered most to me was his nonjudgemental, kind disposition. He never made me feel ashamed, guilty, or embarrassed for poor decisions I may have made in terms of finances. Instead I felt like he went to bat for me and did everything he could to get us funded and at the best rate possible. Tyler makes you feel like you are his only client even when I know he was very busy with many others with situations as complicated as ours. I felt like I was working with a family friend rather than a lender out to make money. I can't recommend him enough and will only use him and his team in the future.

Tyler and his team were fantastic to work with. Some friends of ours recommended The Tyler Osby Team to us when we were ready to buy a new home. Our friend’s recommendation did not disappoint. First off Tyler was very quick to respond to our original email inquiry regarding financing. He spent nearly an hour on the phone with us that morning talking us through various financing options at our disposal. Some we had never heard of, or even knew existed. I need to add my wife and I are dot your I's and cross your T's people and need everything spelled out and written down to make sure we don’t miss anything or make any mistakes, especially when it comes to buying a house. Tyler Osby's team is the perfect team for that and more. Very detailed oriented, timely, curtious, professional, genuine, and most of all honest. Tyler was up front with all of our costs and when it was all said and done and he was even a little high on his quote than our mortgage ended up being. Bonus! Overall, we couldn’t be happier with our decision to choose the Tyler Osby Team in getting us into our new home. It was easy as it can possibly be with 100% professional and straight forward answers. You can’t go wrong.

"After working with a different (big bank) lender for over a month and finding out just two days before I was supposed to close, I was referred to Tyler Osby and his team. Hindsight being 20/20, I wish I would have contacted him to begin with. He was able to get my loan closed just under two weeks after getting the appraisal (that I had to pay for from the lender that failed to close my loan) transferred to his company for underwriting. I highly recommend Tyler and his team to anyone that is looking for a much less dramatic experience than I had in my home purchase!"

Tyler and his team were extremely helpful in setting up my mortgage during and right after my divorce. They were also able to help my former spouse with a re-fi that cleared me to get my mortgage. All in all, the Tyler Osby team helped make the awkward and difficult process go quite smoothly.

This was our first home purchase and with a young daughter and another one on the way, we were on a tight time table to find a perfect place and get closed quickly. Tyler, Rachel and the rest of the team were speedy, informative, hospitable and flexible with our availabilty to meet up. Because we were so new to this process, Tyler explained every step and was more than welcome to answer any questions at any time. I speak for both my husband and myself that without our wonderful realtor and his great referral to The Osby Group, we would not have moved into our new home. I am more than happy to recommend them to anyone!

Closed refinance loan. Oak Park, Des Moines, IA
After my divorce I needed to refinance my mortgage, I had good credit and good payment history but I had not down-payment or equity in my home. There were no programs to help individuals who were current on their loans and several lenders told me that they could not help me. I started asking friends and co-workers for references and Tyler Osby name came up several times. I made an appointment to see if he could refinance my mortgage. Not only was the Tyler Osby Team able to help me but the whole process was quick and everyone was very helpful. I will be using the Tyler Osby Team and Fairway Independent Mortgage for any future financing needs.

Tyler was the mortgage broker for the couple who purchased my home and the home I purchased. Tyler's knowledge, attention to detail and regular communications made the experience seamless and easy. I highly recommend Tyler and his team to anyone interest in a new mortgage or to refinance.

The Tyler Osby Team came highly recommend from both a family member and our realtor. Having had a great experience now ourselves, we would highly recommend them as well! We met with Tyler and his team prior to putting our house on the market. They helped us ballpark proceeds and model payment options to gauge our price range for a new home. Even before we listed our home, they asked for our financial documents and got moving. We are very thankful for that, as our home sold in two days! Once we found a new home, we had just over three weeks until closing on both homes. Tyler and his team were able to meet this timing without any hiccups. The process went very smoothly and we felt very confident in their ability to make this happen. Shortly after our offer on the new home was accepted, we came home to a nice surprise – cake balls and a gift card from Cache (yum!) with a note of congratulations from Tyler and his team. Buying a home is stressful and this was a thoughtful surprise that made us smile! We had absolutely no stresses with Tyler and his team. Nothing felt last minute. They were very knowledgeable and professional. Our previous home buying experience several years ago with a large, well-known lender did not leave us with the same satisfaction. The Tyler Osby Team is far superior! What we liked most about this experience is having actual people who got to know us and had a vested interest in our home buying success. We were more than just a name to Tyler and his team. A+ from us!

I would highly recommend anyone work with Tyler to buy or refinance a home! He is articulate, friendly and very passionate about what he does, probably just about the best professional I have worked with in any field.

I was recommended to Tyler by my real estate agent when I was looking to build a house, sometimes I am a little reluctant to take their recommendation, but thought I would try it. Since that time I have used Tyler to build the house and then refinance it. From the very beginning I knew that I would like working with Tyler, he was always prompt, friendly and on top of things. Being very busy it is tough to keep track of everything that is going on when buying a home, so I had to rely on him to make sure everything was taken care of, and it always was, he was even really good at reminding me if I needed to get something taken care for the loan.

Also, he would always take time out of his day either in person, on the phone or via email to answer any questions I had, no question was too big or too small.

We came to Tyler for help with purchasing our first home. We were completely clueless on the home buying / mortgage process and Tyler took the time to explain the differences between all different types of loans, financing, lenders, etc. so that we could make an educated decision on how to proceed. His whole team was EXTREMELY helpful throughout the entire process and always got back to us in a timely fashion. They definitely helped lessen the stress of purchasing a new home and guided us through the process with little to no effort on our part. From our first conversation until the day we closed, the Tyler Osby Team took great care of our family. He genuinely cares about his clients, takes the time to listen, and gets to know the people he is working with. I would highly recommend the Tyler Osby Team.
