I am so impressed with your office. When documents are needed, your office was quick to inform me of what was needed and I was able to respond in a timely manner. I heard back from your office that same day when I left messages. Everyone in your office is very professional and everyone wants to be of assistance.


Del and his staff were so professional and friendly. There was not a single moment during the process where we were not informed of what was happening, what needed to be done or what to expect.


Our home loan experience was fantastic. All phases were very pleasant and professional. No question was too small to be answered-we felt very confident and received excellent customer service. Our end result says it all-we have a family living in their new home, feeling safe and so happy! The Van Essen team is the best!


Del is an excellent loan officer who went over all the loan options carefully; explaining in detail every option. Thank you Del. 


My husband and I had such a great experience with Del and his team at Community Banks Mortgage. I couldn’t be happier with how smoothly our refinancing process went. It was a staunch difference in how our closing went with another lender, I wish we went with Del the first go around. After hearing the horror stories with some close friends of my mine with their closing, I am grateful that we had such a great experience here. I even referred my previous manager and she was very pleased with the process as well. Do yourself a favor and choose Del and his team to help with your home buying experience!


Del went above and beyond in working with us to meet our needs. We had to structure a unique loan to meet our needs and desires and Del found the perfect solution of loan products for our situation enabling us to purchase our dream home. When a few things didn’t go according to plan at the end, Del stepped in and saved the day!


I have worked with Del and his team for two home mortgages. Del has always been professional and knowledgeable in every area of lending. I would highly recommend him for any of your mortgage needs.


We’ve refinanced several times with Del and each experience has been handled with excellence and professionalism.


Del Van Essen and Dwain Jennings were able to navigate a complex transaction while purchasing an investment property. Not only were they able to get it done on time but were actually able to complete a couple of days early and at a very competitive rate! As we purchase more properties, we will not be going anywhere else! They were the “dream team” we have been looking for!


All I can say is that I have been completely blown away by this experience. When I set out to start my refinance process, I was bracing myself for a long and painful journey. Del and his team made it EFFORTLESS. Not only was their offer competitive, but they also went out of their way to make sure I never felt lost or confused at any point in the process. They responded to every email promptly and really made me feel like I was their #1 priority. And they were so efficient, I was actually able to close 2 weeks earlier than anticipated! They even brought the documents to me to sign! I have honestly never been more pleased going through a process like this and would recommend this team to anyone with a mortgage need. THANK YOU!!!
