I'm a Old School Christ Lover, been helping people finance homes for the last 20 years. I have a passion for athletics, my favorites are ping pong & tennis.

Been married for 38 years, not sure why she still puts up with me. I am a total optimist, and one of the few mortgage guys that doesn't smoke, cuss or drink. I love helping people buy their first home. I love my job, 98% of the time!

Why Choose Mike

How To Choose The Right Mortgage Professional In Houston My name is Mike Durr and I want to thank you for taking a couple minutes to watch this video. You are watching this because you are considering buying or refinancing a home and you want to know how to choose a mortgage professional. If you have spoken to anyone that has either purchased or refinanced recently, you have probably heard how painful the process was. It is painful, Nobody likes going through a process where you basically go under a microscope and have to reveal in minute detail exactly how you are doing financially. Even if you are doing financially great the information is your private information, and you don’t want that information exposed. You know all mortgage companies are not the same and all mortgage people are different too. I am reminded of, one of the memorable moments in the Tom Cruise Movie “Jerry Maquire”. It was the writing of “The Mission Statement”. Tom Cruise as Jerry Maquire quotes his mentor, Dicky Fox, saying that “The key to this business is the Relationships”. Jerry Maquire interprets that as less clients. One of my clients and I were talking recently, and he shared with me one of the key things he felt made my service superior to the other mortgage professionals he had interviewed to help him with his mortgage. Here is what he said, Mike you don’t pass me off to one of your assistants or processors, you are the one that answers my questions and actually helps me. It’s true, I deal with all of my client’s personally. I don’t pass you on to someone else. When you call I am the one that answers your call. When you choose to do business with me,…you get me. I am not a big bank guy, I have worked with large financial institutions and found that the culture in the ones I was involved with was counter-productive to giving great customer service. I also do not work in a big office, I run a small branch office of a national lender with a couple team members that are committed to giving our clients extraordinary service by, holding their hands, and guiding each through the process and offering my eighteen years of experience and advice and access to me during the loan process. I can only do that with a limited number of clients each month, because I am focused on building a long term relationship with each client. So, if you would like someone who takes personal responsibility and is committed to offering 5 star service every time, I encourage you to call me and let’s see if we share similar beliefs that might be a foundation for building a relationship. My number is 281-348-9899

Skills

My chief skill is helping people who have had some kind of life trauma, get back on the path to building their credit so that they can qualify for a mortgage with today's guidelines.

Finding Mike was just by chance and its not usual that you just happen to find someone so amazing. Mike and his team were wonderful to work with. They were very professional and always available to us no matter what time of day he always answered his phone or emails.

My husband and I highly recommend Mike when purchasing or refinancing your home. We have used him twice, first when we bought our home 3 years ago, and again, just recently for the refinance of our home. The process was smooth, Mike is very knowledgeable and helpful, and everyone on his team was great to work with. Having someone local help us was important, not just a voice on the phone, but someone we could sit down and talk with when we needed and who cared about helping us. I would not hesitate to use him again and recommend his services to anyone.

I stumbled upon Mike's business (Kingwood Mortgage Guy, Nations Reliable Lending) through google reviews. The reviews were terrific, and Mike was local, so my wife and I scheduled a time to talk with Mike. We were wanting to buy, but weren't certain we were in the position to do so at that time. When we met with Mike, he led us step by step through the process and answered all of our questions. We decided to move forward, and now have no regrets as we are the new owners of a house we love. Mike is very personable and knowledgeable. We felt like he was someone we could trust. In addition, Nations Reliable, the underwriter of our mortgage, moved quickly and we closed on a house in less than a month after getting pre-approval (we needed to move quickly because of a lease that was ending). Buying a house can be stressful, especially as first-time homebuyers with little knowledge about the process, but our experience was so pleasant we recommend you use Kingwood Mortgage Guy as your lender. Don't go to the banks--we have heard too many stories about how slow and troublesome the process is. If you don't believe me, just look at the Chase bank mortgage provider reviews.

My husband and I were very fortunate that Mike was recommended to us. Two other agents were unable/unwilling to help us get a mortgage, but Mike took the time and finally made us homeowners! We are very pleased with Mike and HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home.

Having Mike on your home buying team is the right way to go! When I spend my money, I am very particular about where every dollar goes. When I do something for the first time, I am very thorough to learn as much as possible to minimize my mistakes. With this in mind, before I bought my first home I knew I had much research ahead of me... Mike was a recommendation from a coworker, but before I decided he was the 'Mortgage Guy ' for me I asked him (and 3 other lenders) 14 questions trying to gage his level of experience and the patience he was going to have while helping me learn about the home financing process. Mike was patient with all my questions, he was honest about the choices I had available to me, and he very knowledgable to help me reach my goal. My job tends to keep me after 5pm some days, but Mike was still able to speak with me an answer my questions. One of the best parts was Mike's promptness to get things done, when he said he would have something to me, I had it.

WOW!! Mike Durr and his team managed to do in three weeks what our previous lender couldn't accomplish in three months. Mike is a professional who takes the time to evaluate your loan and let you know up front everything needed for a smooth and timely transaction. You would be wise to trust Mike with your lending needs -- we will definitely turn to him again in the future.

My husband and I are well pleased with his service. He did everything he could to make sure we were able to close early. There were multiple obstacles that popped up along the way and we worked together swiftly to overcome everyone. I am not a patient person and I called him multiple times during the week for status updates. I know I was not an easy client. I have a tendency to push and can be a bit spunky at times. Mike always showed me kindness and grace. He is a good man and takes great care of his clients. Thank you Mike!

Mike is a great guy and definitely will go the extra mile for you. I would HIGHLY recommend Mike to anyone especially if you are purchasing your first home. He will tell you exactly what to expect and was spot on with all his information he gave us. Thanks Mike! Ross Hebert

We were referred to Mike by our realtor. We knew nothing about this process and Mike guided us through it. He told us exactly what we needed to do, when to do it and how to do it. We are in our new house and we couldn't have done it without him. Mike is available and ready to answer questions when you need him. Thank you!

Let your search end here! Let me just start by saying, I was a first time home-buyer through this process with Mike. I was shopping around several places for the right loan officer, and it wasn't just the numbers that led me to choosing Mike. From the first phone conversation we had, I could tell that this guy loves his job and stays very engaged in the ever-changing market. Not only is he passionate about his work, knowledgeable, and professional, he also really cares about his customers and will take the time to explain anything that might be unclear. Last, but not least, we got an OUTSTANDING rate, the closing went smooth with no issues, and now we own our FIRST HOME!!!! Save yourself the anxiety and put Mike on your team!

We had a fantastic experience with Mike. He proactively contacted us to inform of favorable market rates and monitored trends to optimize our rate selection for refinance. The close process was a breeze!

My experience with Mr. Durr exceeded my expectations. I made a home purchase from a relative that was unusual - involving a gift of equity, some special document requirements and several other special issues compared to a standard home purchase. Mike guided me and my relative through the process calling on his experience, his excellent knowledge of the buying process, and a commitment to "get r done". He provided us with constant updates, was always readily available when a meeting or phone call was needed and had contacts with other entities I needed for special requirements. I do not hesitate to recommend Mike to anyone about to enter the home buying process. Thank you for all your help Mike.
