Kevin Erickson/Loan Officer
Kevin Erickson ~ Loan Originator
Kevin is going on his 14th year in the mortgage business. He comes from a payroll/HR background and is well known by his friends and clients alike for his amazing communication skills. 15 years ago, he experienced a mortgage nightmare of his own, and after that, thought “what if I were to bring integrity and heart to this business?” 14 years later, Kevin has done exactly that wherever he’s gone and whatever he’s done along the way. He’s always mindful of your needs, struggles, and frustrations as he’s been there before.
What Kevin loves: Any sort of outdoor adventure, live music, and being with family and friends. Nikki, and his 5 kids, keep them busy and he loves every minute of it. Whether it’s skiing, boating, traveling, or playing board games, quality time together is everything to Kevin. Both he and Nikki’s hearts are in Arizona and they love that they have expanded their business there so they can visit often, while still being able to operate in Minnesota as well.
What you’ll love about him: When you talk to Kevin, you instantly realize he is genuinely listening to you and is interested in what you are saying. It’s never in one ear and out the other with Kevin, he’s always focused on you. He has a huge heart, which drives him in everything he does, and he truly wants to help you and what is best for you in your life.

She intentionally went back into processing several years ago, as this is the area of mortgage lending she enjoys most and claims she can do it in her sleep.

organizational and communication skills, which she applies to keep files moving even when there’s difficulties.

Her goal is to get people into homes and prides herself on her ability to see the best in everyone. She will treat you like you have always known her and are a dear friend before, during, and after the loan process. She is funny, loves a good joke and laughs easily, so she can keep you calm and laughing even at the most stressful of times.
