Brad Tindal

Brad was amazing! Thank you so much for all your help, we could not have done this without you. I STRONGLY recommend you to anyone who needs a mortgage. Your timeliness, expertise and service was amazing! You always communicated to us through the entire process, it was like I was in your office working next to you! You are the best ever and thank you so much!!

James L.

I was so incredibly impressed with the constant communication that Brad kept with me. He would email me with any questions or requests for further information and he would call me every Tuesday with a weekly update! I cannot believe the amazing service that I received. When I was having trouble getting in touch with my mortgage company to receive a payoff letter for the closing, Brad stepped right up to advocate for me and we received the payoff letter shortly after that. I would highly recommend Brad Tindal for any of your mortgage needs. He is extremely profession and knows how to get his job done quickly and accurately!

Jill S.

Brad was extremely professional, knowledgeable and timely. We moved from PA and were very pressed for time to get the mortgage application and processing done in a short time-frame. Brad worked with us to make it happen and it all went smoothly.

Ed H.

I worked with Brad a few months ago to obtain financing on my first home. He was very knowledgeable with regards to the mortgage process and kept me fully informed the entire time. I would highly recommend him whether you are buying or refinancing.

Faith K.

We would highly recommend him to anyone thinking of purchasing a home. He is patient, knowledgeable, persistent and energetic and will get the job done!

Laura C.

Brad made an impossible situation into a reality. He was very professional and through. I would recommend him to anyone that is looking to finance a home. We are very grateful we were recommended to him.

Carrie Wales

My husband and I both appreciate the information Carrie provided us and the respect with which she treated us in our current situation.


I was referred to Providence by a friend of mine. Being a single mom and not really good with finances I was nervous about getting a mortgage. WOW!!!! This company was so sensitive about my situation and held my hand through the whole process. I cannot thank Carrie enough for taking extra time with me and keeping it simple throughout the process. I knew that Providence and Carrie were looking out for me all the way through the process. Thank you, Carrie!


We really appreciate Carrie’s kindness and helpfulness. She’s a great person and we’re glad we found her.


Carrie is absolutely AMAZING!! We were able to get pre-approved for a home loan right away, and get extra money back with the Community Support Program which covered our closing costs!! Carrie’s attentiveness exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend her!!

Niky S.

Very happy with our refinance experience. Carrie was able to get us a great rate and saved us a lot of money by doing so! Carrie is very knowledgeable and friendly. A pleasure to do business with, along with the entire Providence Home Lending office staff.

Kelly W.

We met Carrie Wales thru our realtor and could not have been more pleased. Carrie was extremely helpful and responsive to our needs in securing a mortgage for our vacation home. She went over and above, was available anytime, day or evening to answer questions, work with the underwriters, offer suggestions and to help make a timely and smooth closing. Thank you, Carrie.

Bob & Jeanine W.

Carrie was extremely thorough and professional in her approach to help us purchase our 2nd home. Everything went smooth and we had no qualms about the purchase process. We also did refinance with Carrie a few times over the last couple years. Carrie is easy to get in touch with and is very prompt with her follow up. I would highly recommend Carrie for helping you with any types of loan or refinance issues.


Carrie made our refinancing process simple and easy to understand. I guess I have continuously put it off because I thought it would be a huge headache, but working with Carrie proved otherwise. Carrie was very thorough and always made me feel very comfortable… if you are like me and think the process is scary… work with Carrie. I wish I would have known a lender like her when we initially purchased our home… If you are unsure of how to move forward or even if you are just thinking about refinancing or purchasing Carrie will make it easy for you to understand and complete the process. I truly recommend you take the time to sit down with her, it will be the best decision you make.

Adam W.

I have worked with Carrie for years and years and I would definitely highly recommend her to anyone looking for quality, dependable and efficient lending assistance. She is available whenever I need her (which is sometimes A LOT and on weekends/nights/etc). She is professional and always courteous. Please do not hesitate to call her today!

Chip Knilans

Thank you Chip. Rachael and I really appreciate the job you did. We are very happy with you and with Karen.

Jason W.

Gary and I want to thank Chip for the stamp with our name and address on it. It just came in the mail. That will come in handy. Again, thanks for doing such a great job on doing our refinance on our home.

Gary & Colleen G.

Chip, Thank you very much for all your effort. We appreciate it very much and are very happy with the house.

Robert & Melissa R.

I wanted to express my appreciation for all the assistance received from Chip Knilans in regard to my loan. Chip was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and took time to explain everything so I knew exactly what was happening. One cannot imagine how it is to work with someone who is so efficient.

June L.

I highly recommend Chip to anyone that I know of working on a mortgage. Very, very helpful, especially without out purchasing from a realtor.


Dave Van Beckum

I just wanted to say ‘thanks’ for Dave’s help in securing home financing for my customer. I know it was a complicated set up… that was certainly ‘out of the box.


Dave is the best mortgage lender I have ever worked with. I highly recommend him. He was knowledgeable, ahead of the game with every step, explained all the changes in home mortgage thoroughly, and kept everything going smoothly. If you are looking for a mortgage lender who will do a great job and is easy to work with, you need to look no further than Dave. I would use him again in a heartbeat. Thanks for the great service, Dave.

Gary T.

Dave was one of those people that honestly loves to help people. I appreciated his honesty and in depth knowledge of the industry. Dave provided us with a lot of information and answered a lot of questions… due to our circumstances and market conditions he advised us that we were best off where we were at. It is that level of service and commitment to doing the right thing for his clients that I would high recommend Dave. He is a friendly, outgoing and very personable person…who just so happens to live to help people. You would be fortunate to get his level of service.

Thanks again for all of your help!

Jason S.

I’ve worked with Dave in the capacity of a client as well as assisting many of his clients with their insurance needs. Dave is incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to all things mortgages, is very professional, is always available and goes WAY above and beyond for his clients. Even prior to becoming a client he was willing to give up a considerable amount of his time to assist and counsel on credit and mortgage related issues. I’ve heard from one if his clients he even watched their dogs while they were in between homes while moving! I highly recommend Dave and if you work with him, I’m positive you will too!

Kara L.

Dave worked for me for over 15 years. I could always trust him to provide his customers with the highest level of service and advice. He is a true professional. If you are looking for a mortgage or know someone who is I would highly recommend you contact Dave.

Wayne P.

I had the pleasure of working with Dave and found him to be a highly ethical and industrious financial sales expert. Always happy, always smiling…always prepared to help his clients. I highly recommend Dave Van Beckum.

Neil C.

Dave’s knowledge and experience was truly prevalent throughout the entire home buying process for my client and myself. He delivered on his promises and helped a first time home buyer realize their dreams. Dave’s communication and thoroughness went above and beyond. I look forward to working with Dave again soon, and would highly recommend him for all of your home lending needs.

Josh M.

We just wanted to thank you for the great work you’ve done for both homes we’ve now purchased! You have been a pleasure to work with and we’ve enjoyed the opportunities to interact with you!


Jeff Grieshammer

This is what people look for in a lender that’s not just out for your money!! Jeff Grieshammer is the greatest guy I’ve worked with on my house and has always picked up the phone no matter what. When I had questions… He will call you during the week to make sure everything is going alright and update you on your purchases… Looking for home lending, drop this guy a line!!!!!

Aaron Arnold

We came to see Jeff not thinking we would even have a chance to buy. Today, Jeff put us in our DREAM HOME! Jeff was everything and more in someone to work with. Thank you for the “popcorn – movie” night, nice touch!! I wouldn’t recommend anyone else! Hope to catch ya banging on the drums sometime – Rock On!

Mike & Marie M.

Although I’m not settled entirely, I’m enjoying my new home.

I appreciate your hard work and your kindness before and after the closing.


Just wanted to say thank you again for your help in the process of getting me in my new home. You made it simple and quick. I appreciate all you did throughout the process. We are getting settled in and loving our new place!


I am an elementary school teacher in Madison and want all of you taking the time to read this to know that YOU WILL NOT FIND A MORE GENUINE AND DEDICATED mortgage loan officer – EVER. In this day and age, finding someone you can trust; who will treat your account like it was their own, is kind of unheard of. For someone who cares for other people’s most valuable assets on a daily basis, I know how much trust is involved in this kind of relationship. Most peoples’ second most valuable asset is the home in which these cherished ones live. If you want someone to care as much as you do about your home (one of the most important decisions of your life) you need look no further than Jeff Grieshammer. I met Jeff as someone who was going to work with me, and now consider Jeff a true friend. My account was probably one of the most challenging one could come across; he could have dropped me at any point. But he kept fighting (and believe me there was a brawl around every corner). And, he’s STILL fighting for me. The phrase “to go above and beyond” doesn’t even begin to describe his work ethic. The high expectations this man holds himself to are truly inspiring. This review could go on for pages describing the hoops Jeff will jump through for you to be treated with respect and dignity. I will ALWAYS remember, recommend and honor him. Thank you, Jeff, for helping achieve my dreams!

Thank you for the wonderful x-mas card. By the way, everyone loved the apple pie you brought to closing. I have had many mishaps getting moved and settled in and I still wouldn’t have missed any of it for anything. It is truly beautiful up here and I thank you for the opportunity to get this home.

Peace Out!

Ritchie Baumann

I’ve been meaning to email you to THANK YOU for helping me through this process of getting my own home and being so patient through the whole process. It has been a long time coming, and you had faith in me to getting the credit higher. Your dedication to making this happen and guiding me through the process is greatly appreciated! Also, thanks for the gifts, the plate, pie and booklet to keep the memories. It’s been a busy past 5 days, moving and painting, painting and moving. I didn’t realize how much stuff I have to move and I still have a storage unit to move! Yikes! It’s time to downsize I guess. LOL


Ritchie created a very smooth process from my perspective, I am certain he did plenty on his end to make this seem very easy.


Rob Miller

Working with Rob was an excellent experience. I will be passing Rob’s information on to others.

Julie K.

As a first-time home buyer, I didn’t know where to start until a former co-worker referred Rob Miller. I was amazed how detailed everything was, I knew what to expect through the whole process. Everyone in the process did a great job and I’ve told several people about the great experience you provided Rob.

Erica L.

Rob was very on top of things and very knowledgeable on the entire process. I was not able to work through the bank but through Rob, he made it happen.

Caroline O.

We wanted the best and Rob is the best!

Larry G.

Rob was great to work with and I’m so happy we went with him. It felt like we were working with a friend, which helped a lot since this was our first home buying experience.

Erin T.

Honestly the process sucked, all the hoops you have to go through to get financing. But, if I have to pick something that was amazing about the process, its how Rob helped with any question I had at any time of the day.

Travis F.

Rob was easy to get a hold of and returned phone calls & emails in a timely manner. The process was organized & clearly listed out for the things we needed to supply him with.

Jen K.

I like that I was always kept in the loop – constant communication and explanation of everything. I tell everyone how awesome Rob was. It was so painless, its unbelievable. I felt that I barely had to do anything.

Becky G.

Shani Weibel

Shani was wonderful. I felt like we were best friends for years! She cared about me as a person as well as a customer. She was happy to answer any questions I had, made herself available to me after hours, if I needed and she genuinely cared about me and my family. I felt comfortable and confident buying my first home and I was beyond excited to share that experience with Shani.

As a first-time home buyer, I was unfamiliar with the entire process of purchasing a house, to say the least. I did some preliminary groundwork myself but soon found myself overwhelmed. My Mortgage Broker Shani Weibel patiently and thoroughly explained each step of the way so that I was comfortable. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional, and worked very hard to get me into the home I really wanted. I couldn’t be happier and would recommend her and Providence Home Lending to ANYONE looking to buy a home.

Scott W.

Thank you!!

It was a pleasure working with you and your team. You all were professional, efficient, and timely. I really appreciated your genuineness from day one.

I will not hesitate to make referrals when appropriate.

Thanks Again!
