This was our first time purchasing a home and I am so grateful my real estate agent told me to go with Shanna at North Star. She went above and beyond with helping us, finding the perfect mortgage for us, and patiently walking us through every step. We also saved thousands because Shanna does not charge origination fees like other institutions and she was able to save us more with a free home inspection! As great as those things were, she saved us way more in the long run with finding the perfect home buyer program for us that saved us from paying mortgage insurance. We highly recommend her and North Star to anyone navigating buyer their first or fifteenth home. They really are the best!
