|The business of financial advice has, for investors, always been confusing and opaque. New rules meant to help clear it up may not help much.|
I just recently made a long-distance move back to Michigan from North Carolina. I had been in contact with my real estate agent, Elizabeth Brien, in my home search. She recommended I get in touch with Pete Stegler at Arbor One Mortgage to see if he could help with getting pre-approval under unusual circumstances. Pete was so dedicated and on top of things, he was able to get my home purchase closed on 4/15/2019; which means from the time the offer was made and the closing occurred, it was only 14 days! Who closes on a home in 14 days? I cannot express my appreciation for what he has done. He even went to the length of checking in with me concerning the loan and closing while he was on vacation. I HIGHLY recommend working with Pete as he is very honest and helpful in explaining each and every step. Pete, you are amazing! Thank you!

Anne Nauts and her team are officially my new favorite people! I was sent to Anne by my realtor who said that if anyone could help me get a home loan, Anne could do it. Anne worked very hard to help me get the loan for my new home. Never have I seen a total stranger work so hard on my behalf before, and I'm quite certain that if it hadn't been for Anne and her team, and all their hard work; I would not have gotten my mortgage and would not be moving into my new home in a few short weeks. I will be sending all my friends and family to Anne! Thanks again Anne, you are amazing!

Reigis, I just wanted to tell you how much Roger and I appreciate all the time and effort you put into our dream of home ownership. We could not have achieved this goal without your advise and guidance. Thank You Arbor One Mortgage!
Susan & Roger L. Reigis Recchia
We just wanted to thank you for all the help you have given us and in finally buying our house. Your advice was sound and we appreciate you more than you can ever know.

Getting a mortgage is a serious affair. Getting a mortgage if you move into the US from another country complicates matters even more. I reached out to several people and Pete Stegler and his team gave me the best initial impression, so I opted to work with him. I was not disappointed. Pete kept on top of things the whole time. We started the process long before we found the first house that we were interested in. Pete was with us for every detail and never lost site of the bigger picture either. He worked tireless to remove any obstacles, found alternative solutions if we hit a hitch, and anticipated the unforeseen weeks before it happened! In the end, it is all about trust. You make a large commitment when you buy a house, so feeling good about the process is an important part of the deal. Pete was helpful, friendly, patient, and cheerful. And a good sense of humor helped, too. I am convinced you are in safe and capable hands if you work with Pete Stegler.

I recently applied for a loan so that we could upgrade to a larger home in order to accommodate our growing family. We were pre-approved, and found a very reasonable home. I just wanted to mention that Mark B. went above and beyond. He was extremely professional; answered all questions! Kept me informed as to status throughout entire process. Always received prompt replies to my emails or phone calls. I would definitely recommend using Arbor One as I will be using in them in the future.

We have had the opportunity to work with Anne Nauts three times in the past two years and I can say with confidence that it was definitely an "opportunity" every time. Whether we were buying, refinancing or selling, her knowledge, experience, can-do attitude and willingness to help with a friendly smile has guided us through smoothly and made us feel without a doubt like we were in good hands. Anne makes us want to buy more houses! Anne has become not only a go-to resource for all our mortgage financing needs but a friend to our entire family. We are so glad we found Anne!

I would like to thank Arbor One for employing Mark Bracey, our loan officer for both a refinance and a second home. I received his name from a friend to help us navigate those purchases and I am so glad we found him! He is professional, persistent, approachable, patient, and honest. He went above and beyond the call of duty in meeting all of our needs. He was easily accessed by phone, email, or text. He was very knowledgeable on loans and was able to give sound advice on how to proceed. I'm so grateful we found him and would recommend him to anyone! Thanks Mark!
Carol H. Mark Bracey
When we started shopping for our first home we had zero knowledge about mortgages or home-buying. But Pete spent time teaching us the entire process and making us feel comfortable. He took good care of everything for us and kept us informed about each stage of our purchase. Pete goes well above and beyond expectations. We now have a great house with a great mortgage and a great knowledge about how we got it. Thanks!
Andy D Pete Stegler
Christian & Mike P are my heros! After a horrendous experience with the bank I was working with - which resulted in me wasting my time AND money, Mike & Christian were able to swoop in and save the day. They made the process stress free. They kept me informed from start to finish, and ultimately helped me get my home. In less than 4 weeks everything was signed, sealed & delivered, and I received the keys to my very first home October 6th. Thanks so much guys. You were amazing and I truly appreciate all your hard work and dedication to me and my home ownership dream (which is Now My Reality). I would refer you guys a million times over if I could
Charity R Christian and Mike
I have worked with Pete Stegler twice now -- for my first ever mortgage and now for a refinancing. Pete is the perfect person for a new homebuyer. I had NO idea what I was doing and in many ways, didn't want to get involved with the details. Pete walked me through every step so clearly, explaining exactly what I needed to know. He is absolutely great at his job. I recommend him to everyone I know, and wouldn't use anyone else!
Beth C Pete Stegler
Anne and her team are the absolute BEST! Every question is answered, every concern addressed, every option explored, always with my needs in mind.
Mary F Anne Nauts
We are repeat customers for Christian Draheim. We just wanted to say, "Outstanding job". Christian and Mike did a very quick re-fi for us and I'm glad to say all our pesky credit cards are all paid off................Yea!!!!!. They were very professional and accurate in handling all of our papers and information. What a pleasant way to get a loan and close so quickly. Thank you Christian and Mike for a great process.
Ronald M. Christian Draheim
Anne Nauts did an awesome job. She is very knowledgeable, prompt and reachable at all hours of the day. We highly recommend her and would be glad to do business with her in the future. Anne was a pleasure to work with!
Troy and Debbie B Anne Nauts
My husband and I have worked with Pete Stegler for many years as our mortgage consultant. I can't say enough about how easy Pete makes this complicated process. Pete takes the time to talk to you, answer your questions, and always wants you to be comfortable and satisfied with the process and outcome. One last thing I can say about Pete is how attentive he is to detail. He goes the extra mile and it is noticed and appreciated! It's why we've stayed with Pete for so many years!! Thanks Pete...
Julie and Michael O Pete Stegler
Anne was amazing to work with. She made us feel as if we were her only client. Despite our initial plan to shop for the best rates, Anne's service was heads and tails above the rest. We could not have been in better hands, and were so thankful for the time she invested in our case (which was not an easy one).We are so happy in our new home and we know it would not have been possible without Anne's hard work and determination.
Laura and James B Anne Nauts
Anne Nauts was amazing! She was so on top of things and truly made me trust her and Mortgage One. I would give Anne my business any day and have already had one friend get a loan through Mortgage One because of Anne's incredible service. I'm a customer for life!
Rebecca R Anne Nauts
I had previously been through the loan approval process with another institution and at the last minute, for some unknown reason, it was denied! Pete looked at my case and within a two day period of time, Pete had completely taken my loan through an initial process to get approved and worked with me constantly to salvage the situation! To say that Pete was absolutely phenomenal in getting my loan completed and approved and through the system is an understatement. He worked tirelessly and with such efficiency to get everything done and in such a short amount of time. He was constantly updating me and letting me know exactly what was happening every step of the way. I will ALWAYS recommend Pete and his team to anyone looking to go through the loan approval process! Thank you Pete for all your hard work!
Steven F Pete Stegler
Hi Brent, Once again thank you so much for accomplishing what at one point seemed to be the impossible. I truly appreciated your attention to detail and taking the time to sit done with me face to face to review the process and the facts. You kept me informed throughout the entire process which helped to ease my stress level. Your knowledge and advice made this a very pleasant experience. You are the "miracle worker". Thank you again! Doris
Doris Brent Veenstra
I am so grateful to Brent and Arbor One Mortgage for making my mortgage a reality! From the very first phone call, Brent was not only professional but also made it clear he was committed to helping me. He was well-prepared and informative throughout the process... THANK YOU for all of your help!" Amy F.
Amy F Brent Veenstra
Working with Pete Stegler was wonderful experience! Pete is incredibly smart, amiable, and dedicated. My husband and I had a very short time table and were also facing an impending wedding. The palpable stress we felt was eased by Pete's friendly, prompt work. Not only did he alleviate our concerns, he also made us better homeowners by giving us a few lessons we definitely needed. Whenever I had a question--and there were many--he calmly and patiently helped me understand. We have no regrets about working with Pete and will continue to recommend him to all who are seeking a mortgage.
Amy & Brian M Pete Stegler
Pete Stegler is, without a doubt, one of the worlds best Mortgage Loan Officers. I am unable to adequately articulate how wonderful Pete Stegler has been to my husband and me. In short- Pete epitomizes trustworthiness, dedication, and reliability. For us, Pete went from being someone in the mortgage business, to being a trusted friend. He was a joy to work with, and we look forward to working with him in the future. We have already, and will continue to recommend Pete to anyone. We loved working with him, and often joke about how much we miss talking with our mortgage guy honestly! You are in good hands with Pete.
Maryl & Chris W Pete Stegler
Friendly knowledgeable service that considers the customers needs and expectations number one and goes above and beyond with customer service, thank you again!
Steven J. Anne Nauts
My family was looking for a home, and we were new to the home buying process. It seemed like so much work, and quite frankly, I had no clue where to start. Pete walked us through step by step, he understood our hesitance, and took as much time as we needed for him to help us. He even helped us clean up our credit, and hit the ground running. We now have our new home, I am so much more educated on the process, and my family is so much happier in our new home. I not only bought a new house, I made a friend! I have never been more thankful to a company for their service as I am to Pete of Arbor One Mortgage.
Robbie H. Pete Stegler
My wife and I were unsure about our ability to buy a house and must have changed our minds about whether or not to go forward about 100 times. Pete not only showed us a loan program that provided us with a fair & viable solution, he also walked us through every step on the way. We never felt like we were being sold something and he was careful to allow us to come to our own conclusions about what we were and were not comfortable with. We just closed on our first house, using Pete as our lender, and we could not be happier. An otherwise mystifying experience was instead an educational one that helped us now, and may help us again in the future.
Ryan S. Pete Stegler
When we began the process of buying a home, I was hopeful but skeptical. I had doubts that owning a home was possible, but Pete Stegler's expertise and kindness reassured me that it could actually happen. Pete was patient throughout the entire process with me, coaching me along the way. He guided me and helped me turn my credit around so that purchasing a home could actually happen. My wife and I would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude and appreciation. From the start, Pete has been patient, understanding, and always helpful. As first time homebuyers, we were clueless on all the intricacies involved in securing a mortgage, title work, and other fine details that are involved in the process. We could go on and on; however, from what I stated above, I am sure that you get the picture. Again, thank you Pete for assisting us in attaining a very reasonable mortgage and being there to answers all of our questions.
Allan and Melissa C. Pete Stegler
My family and I had so many changes in our lives at the time we were working with Pete...new job, new city, new schools, new everything. Not only did Pete walk us through every step of the process, but he also helped ease us into all the new transitions that were taking place. Pete provided us a service that went above and beyond a typical loan officer. It didn't take us long to understand why our realtor recommended his and spoke so highly of Pete not only as a professional, but also as a person. What make working with Pete so special was the personal gratification he received when we were presented with the keys to our new home. Again, he was there walking us through. We will always use Pete for other purchases and highly recommend his services to others. It is evident that Pete thinks of his role as a loan officer not only as a career, but also a lifestyle. We truly appreciate all he has done for our family!
Preston & Bethany S. Pete Stegler
I had a great experience with Pete Stegler. We had an unusual mortgage situation, and Pete found appropriate ways around the problems, kept us informed, helped us with outside organizations when needed, and kept on top of arising situations. Pete is easy to work with and is very knowledgeable about the mortgage business.
Mark W. Pete Stegler
Pete took the stress out of buying a first home. He communicated extremely well and took time to explain each step of the loan process clearly. He helped us structure our offer in a way that saved us money and minimized our costs to close. He helped us get the house we wanted at a low interest rate, and even met our demanding time constraints. We would recommend Pete and ArborOne Mortgage to anyone and everyone, especially first-time home buyers.
Ben P. Pete Stegler
I'm a former Banker who decided to not use my current employer at the time for my own Mortgage. The local bank had inferior mortgage products and the service left a lot to be desired. Even though I was an employee at the time I didn't have anyone I could specifically speak with. So I took the advice of my Realtor and called Pete Stegler, my Mortgage Specialist. I can honestly say the service that I received since my first meeting was the best I've ever been given. Being informed and contacted without any prompting from my end was a unique experience. I highly recommend Pete and his team! They are professionals that will take care of all the behind the scenes items, and let you focus in on finding the right home to purchase!
Steve D. Pete Stegler
I wanted to write regarding the service we received during our recent home purchase using Pete Stegler as our lender. My family and I were in the middle of a home purchase and found that we needed to change lenders. Our situation in having an accepted offer on a home and having to start over with a new lender put us in a stressful situation. Pete worked around the clock and went far over and above the call of duty working on our case to make sure we could close on our home. This was not our first home purchase, but it was the first time we have ever had such wonderful service and help from a mortgage company. I would not hesitate to recommend Pete to anyone.
James R. Pete Stegler

Amy & Brian M. Pete Stegler
Great Job Pete! I still don't exactly know how you were able to get his loan to close but you did it! We appreciate the professional way in which you spoke about and solved problems with the condo complex and the truthful way in which you conveyed the information to us. The best part was knowing that you were always in our corner trying to get it done!! Thank you so very much, we really appreciate it.
Kathy F. Pete Stegler
Pete Stegler came highly recommended to us from multiple friends who had recently worked with him to secure a home loan. Upon our initial conversation with Pete, it was clear why. Pete is incredibly prepared, organized, thorough, knowledgeable, patient, and friendly. As our family resides outside of the U.S. for most of the year, we knew that there would be some challenges in the home buying process, but Pete made it incredibly simple for us to understand and prepare for. Pete was in continuous contact with us throughout the process and we could not have felt more secure in the fact that we could trust that he had our best interests in mind. We cannot recommend Pete more highly to those looking to purchase a home. This has been a wonderful experience and if we ever decide to purchase a home again in the future, Pete will be the first person we contact. Thank you, Pete, for all of your hard work and dedication in helping us buy our home! It was a great pleasure to work with you!
Jason & Taylor K Pete Stegler
Dan and I would like to thank you for your exceptional service during our home loan process. As you know, we switched lenders mid-way through after months of delays and difficulties with our then lender. The anguish and frustration levels were so high at that time we almost gave up. You quickly took our troubles away and actually made the final process enjoyable. We know without pause, that you made our dreams to become a homeowner reality. Your organization, personal touch and professionalism is unmatched and we strongly recommend you to all. Again, we thank you for working hard and for setting the expectations which made the final process not only bearable, but enjoyable as well.
Dan & Debbie P. Pete Stegler
I dont usually write testimonials or reviews, but Pete Steglers handling of my mortgage application up to the closing date was so very exceptional, that I have to say something. Pete took the time to explain the process every step of the way, providing me copies of documents and going through those documents so I fully understood. He was always available to answer questions, too. He even provided his cell phone # so I could call him if I had questions after office hours. I never had to call him after office hours because he explained everything thoroughly. I had a very positive experience with Pete Stegler as my Loan Officer no hassle, no stress. I will definitely recommend Pete Stegler to anyone I come across who is shopping for a mortgage loan!
Alive V. Pete Stegler
In the past few years, I have purchased two homes with the help of Pete Stegler. Since then, I have told everyone I know that when they are ready to buy a house I know the best guy in the business, Pete Stegler. With my first home, Pete took the time to make sure I understood everything that was happening and what was going to happen. He made sure that I knew how to move forward and got me the best type of loan for my needs. The second time, Pete and his assistant, Mike Petchell, did an amazing job overcoming every obstacle that came up (and there were a few due to my haste to get this house). They put in so much extra time for me and did everything they could to resolve the issue for me or making sure I knew exactly what I needed to do to resolve it myself. I have no doubt that if I had been going through anybody else I would not have been able to successfully buy this home. If you're looking to buy a home, you can't find better than Pete at Arbor One Mortgage Group.
Mike S. Pete Stegler
My Loan officer at Arbor One was a super Senior Loan Originator. His vast knowledge and pleasant demeanor made our home purchase process a very rewarding experience. I highly recommend home buyers reach out to Arbor One. They are very thorough in updating our family of the status of our mortgage refinance request and was always available when we had additional questions.
Marcus W VA Loan
I chose Arbor One because I didn't want to feel like a number, like I did with my last loan. Pete worked with me throughout my entire home buying process. He made it so easy to understand and was honest and upfront with me about everything. He always got back with me right away if I had questions (and I had a lot) and was so patient. I would, definitely, recommend Pete to anyone who was looking to get into real estate! Thank you so much for all you've done. I'm so happy in my new home!
Larissa I Pete Stegler
Big thanks to Brandi Anderson and Brent Veenstra for getting me into my new home in record time!!! 18 days from start to close!!! You guys are awesome and I really appreciate everything you both did!!! I will refer you guys to everyone that I know that is looking for a home. Thanks again you guys!!!
Jeff C. Brent Veenstra
Just wanted to say thank you again for everything. Words cannot describe how thankful I am for all the work you've done and how great you've been throughout this entire process. Couldn't be happier with how it all turned out, you're amazing.
Nilo K Anne Nauts
I cannot rave enough about my positive experience with Arbor One. My mortgage was processed in record time and my closing went very smooth. I worked with Christian Draheim and Mike Petchell - both were extremely responsive and kept me informed of the loan progress along the way. They also made sure that I wasnt just a number, which made the experience very personal! From making the first inquiry to the successful closing, every step of the way was easy and enjoyable. I can highly recommend Arbor One Mortgage Group to anyone that is looking for home financing.
Ina C. Christian Draheim
My experience with Arbor One Mortgage was hands-down the best Real Estate & Mortgage experience I've had. I've dealt with realtors and mortgage brokers many times before and it seemed as if the entire process was like pulling teeth. It was the exact opposite with these guys. My lender, Brent Veenstra was on top of everything the entire time. His experience paid dividends and his advisement throughout the process went above and beyond what a typical lender is asked to do. I've never recommended anybody in the Mortgage industry to anybody before now.. I highly recommend Brent. Buying and selling homes is stressful enough. Let the folks at Arbor One reduce that stress for you. You'll be glad you did!
Jared D. Brent Veenstra
Brent--I would like to thank you and your staff for your dedication, professionalism and hard work on my VA loan. I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know that is seeking a lender.
Evan C. Brent Veenstra
Anne & the Team--We absolutely can't thank you enough for your help with our first home. Between going so far above the call of duty and patiently dealing with my incessant emailing and calling, I am absolutely blown away by the effort you have gives us! If and when we decide to do this again, you'll be hearing from us. Thanks so much again.
