About Casey Lester

I am a Western Colorado native who fell victim to the old Grand Junction curse….”Once you’ve been here you’ll always come back”. In 1998 my wife and I moved back to Grand Junction to start our family. 22 years and 3 children later, we can’t imagine anywhere else to be home. I enjoy helping people in a sales career and have done so for 4 companies here on the Western Slope. My latest, Major Mortgage, gives me the chance to help people’s dreams of homeownership happen smoothly.

Casey’s Qualifications

I have been in the mortgage industry for 5 ½ years as of August 2020. What makes me different? I have held almost every position other than underwriter in this short time. I pioneered the setup/verification department for Major Mortgage and have also been a loan processor for almost 4 years all alongside being a licensed loan originator. What does this mean to you? It means I know how to build a loan and what each department is going to look for along the way and this helps smooth the path for each borrower I help.

Casey’s Areas Of Expertise

I am available and can help with all residential loan types. One of the advantages of holding multiple positions is that I have seen more loans than many people who have twice the experience that I do. I am able to help borrowers in the Grand Junction area and throughout Colorado. Please feel free to reach out to me with questions about your specific situation.

Roadmap To Your New Home Loan

Step One: Pre-Qualification

We will have you fill out an application on our website. This will allow us to pull credit. We will also collect income and asset documentation to make sure you have a solid pre-qualification. Once you are pre-qualified, we can give you an idea of the price range of house you can afford, so that you can start house shopping!

Step Two: House Shopping

Once you have been pre-qualified, you can contact your agent or realtor and start shopping for houses you like in the range you can afford. Once you find a house you want, you will make an offer and we will begin the process of setting up your loan.

Step Three: Setup and Processing

Once your loan moves to processing we will be updating and verifying all of the information you provided to us at pre-qualification. We will also order and appraisal, title work and insurance for your property. Keep an eye out for communications from us so that you can help us make the process faster. Processing will analyze your situation and prepare your loan for Underwriting.

Step Four: Underwriting

Once your loan has made it through processing it will move to our Underwriting Department. Underwriting will review your loan and all documentation to verify that it meets all guidelines and make sure everything is in the clear for closing.

Step Five: Closing

You will receive closing instructions with the day, time, and location of your closing. You will also receive a Closing Disclosure 3 days before you loan closing date that you will need to sign so keep a look out for it.

Step Six: You’re A Homeowner!

Congratulations! You’re A New Homeowner!
