    Great service and rates

    After researching a few banks that offers ARM mortgages, Chris Lawson from FIB gave us a rate and fees/closing costs that no other institution could closely match. Besides the financial piece, Chris was very helpful and responsive to all my questions and concerns throughout the process. He also got things done quickly and was thorough which I and the builder appreciated. I would definitely work with Chris and FIB again... Read More

    Chris Lawson provided a rate and fees/closing costs that were better than any other institution I contacted. What was also important to me was that he was quick, thorough and personable. And if I had questions/concerns at any stage of the process, he was very easy to get a hold of. I didn't get that type of service from other lenders I contacted so I would definitely work with Chris again... Read More

    Joey Newton was extremely helpful. Answered all of our questions (which there were multiple, and many of them repeat questions), and made the process of purchasing our first home seem extremely easy. Would highly recommend, and will surely count on his expertise for future purchases.

    Better Service at First Internet

    (0) (0)
    I had my choice of 3 lenders and chose First Internet. The reason was simple: transparency. My First Internet Bank rep Kelsey explained the process and all the fees and discounts. The other lenders glossed over the details. She was there every step of the way and made things simple and quick. My loan closed in just a few weeks.

    Mortgage Loan experience

    The process went smoothly with personal interaction from First IB personnel at each step - application, document collection, review, and final approval. The online document collection was very efficient, and the loan processor and staff were most attentive to make sure that nothing fell through. There were several options regarding costs, and the credits we received almost covered almost all of our closing costs. This was our second mortgage loan processed through First Internet, and we will use them again should we need another mortgage... Read More

    Max Kotterman works at First Interneet Bank and has helped me tremendously for my refinancing my home loan. I have saved $18K from his help. I highly recommend him as he made it possible via online and all the paperwork went thru smoothly.

    Poor service

    Bombarded with phone calls from them. I did respond to an email from them asking for specifics on the rate and other fees. Received a response of "just look at my rate scenario page" which seems very impersonal and obviously isn't specific for me and doesn't give me specifics of what I want. "If you like a scenario then feel free to fill out applications." Very impersonal again. They are online only with no B&M. So if I contact them, I would hope to get more service than what they provided. If that's how they handle business, would recommend someone else... Read More

    Thanks for your honest feedback, Aaron. As an online-only bank, we go out of our way to provide personalized, attentive and prompt service, but it sounds like we failed to meet your expectations in this situation. We apologize. One of our mortgage managers will be reaching out to you directly to address your concerns, and we will also use this as an opportunity to improve our service going forward. Can we have another chance to make it right?
At First Internet Bank, we focus on helping our customers achieve their dreams of homeownership. We know that it is more than a house to you; it is where you raise your families, make lasting memories and build financial security. And we know that your family and home is unique and special, so we treat each and every application individually.
1. Your home loan experience – better, faster, easier – Our team has helped thousands of people like you afford the home of their dreams. You can rely on our deep knowledge and experience because our loan officers are seasoned professionals. They’re not sales people; they are “skilled mortgage advisors.” We take the time to explain each step to you – forms, paper work, the home appraisal and the final closing. First IB is there for you and will guide, support and advise you every step of the way.
2. Great rates and low fees – We know that once you find that perfect home in that perfect neighborhood, you’ll need a mortgage partner to help you design the perfect payment plan. First IB consistently delivers competitive mortgage rates to home owners across the nation. And unlike some lenders, we won’t just show you “some” of the fees, we show you everything.
