I cannot say enough about our work with Darrell. We had an issue with three weeks to go until closing and he helped us work through this issue and got us closed. Can't say enough about how great he and his team have been to work with.

Darrell and his team are excellent. If you need to close on time, Shelter and the team is the way to go. Extremely easy and very transparent with the process. I would recommend Shelter to anyone looking to purchase a new home.

Darrell Edquist did a great job communicating and updating us during our loan process. He promised to make it less stressful, and he did! I would definitely recommend Darrell and Shelter Home Mortgage.
