Alli was the best!! She is very prompt in responses to questions. Incredibly organized and closing was as smooth as could be!! Thank you for making a long time dream come true!


As a first time buyer, Lisa and her team made it easier for me by providing guidance and answers to all my questions and concerns every step of the way. Thank you, Ladies for all your hard work and efforts in this process. I am very thankful to you all at Global State Mortgage!


Finished escrow in just over 2 weeks! Super fast service, and great customer care. Gave us a dynamite mortgage that was irresistible to the sellers. Thanks!


Leiah out of the Ames office was amazing! She got everything done in a timely manner and tackled any hurdles that came across! Would highly recommend.


Thank you so much to Leiah — she was responsive and overall a pleasant and professional individual to work with on my first home. We closed in 30 days!


Lisa and her crew are the best! She has helped with us with both of our mortgages and makes the whole process easy and comfortable! With our first house we had a lot of questions and concerns but her and her teamed was able to work through them with us.


I've worked with several bankers and mortgage brokers over the years both personally and professionally and by far Michael Weber and Global State are the best, most efficient and professional. The easiest recommendation I can make to anyone is to work with them.


My experience with GSM was my first experience getting a mortgage. To say I was clueless is an understatement: I had no idea what the process involved, nor that homeownership was possible for me. All of that changed when I worked with Angie Kettwig. Angie and the GSM team were incredible in helping me become a homeowner. We did everything electronically, which saved me time as a working professional. Be it via phone or email, Angie was ruthlessly responsive with her communication and walked me through the entire process from start to finish. I responded to any request within hours, and they kept the process moving. The hardest part of the whole process was converting a set of documents requested of me into PDF's, which took me all of 5 minutes. That's the extent of difficulty I had, and it was my issue alone. I told my real estate agent that if I need another mortgage in the future, I want to work with Angie. I am fortunate to have my first experience go as smoothly as it did and profoundly grateful to Angie for her role in it all! GRAZIE MILLIE!!!!!


I wouldn't have been able to purchase my current house without Lisa Severseike's help. At the time, she was only one in Ames able to provide USDA rural development loans. She made that process simple and even found me a realtor when no one would answer phone calls or emails from a girl not yet living in Iowa. Now that I have built some equity, I am trying to find a slightly bigger place in the country. Lisa's help through pre-approval process and fast answers to all my financing questions has been the easiest part of the property search.


Lisa and team are hands down the best. They keep you updated on where things are, and answer any question or concern with a smile. Would recommend them to anyone and everyone. We have used her twice and will go to her again if we ever look to purchase again!

Update: We used Global State Mortgage for a refinance. Once again, their knowledge and support are second-to-none. They made the process so easy, and saved us money, effort and time! Leiah and Lisa (and the rest of the team) are great!


Lisa and her team were amazing throughout the whole process. When buying a home there are tons of moving parts and variables to consider. Lisa helped us so much and made a scary process for first time home buyers, worry free. Thanks so much for the amazing service!

5/5 would recommend!


Angie is wonderful to work with-she makes the entire process so easy!


Lisa has done a few mortgages and refinances for us. We always come back to her because we never have any issues, things go smoothly, and she answers all kinds of questions we have as we go through the process. She is also good about telling us of all possible outcomes of the decisions we make as we go through the process, so that we are well informed.


Lisa and her staff at Global State Mortgage are phenomenal. They made our, first time home buyers, experience so easy and kept us up to date with what steps were next, and what to expect in the home buying process. Can't thank Global State enough for all of the help. Highly recommend.


Lisa and her team are absolute professionals. Their expertise with the lending process made our incredibly complicated closing go smoothly. We cannot thank her and the rest of the team at Global State enough for all they did. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a home in Central Iowa.


Lisa and Heidi were so easy to work with! They went above and beyond with explaining our options and getting us all the info we needed!


Lisa and the team did an outstanding job of serving us! Professional, honest, efficient and warm attention to business!
Love the friendly environment and sweet pooch on the premises!!
You can’t go wrong with Lisa Severseike!!


Lisa and Leiah were great to work with (again)! They made the process so simple and easy, and had our best interests in mind. Would recommend them to anyone looking for a purchase or refi! Can’t go wrong! Love the friendly environment and sweet pooch on the premises!!

Lisa and her team are so great. Always on top of things, make the process easy, and always kind and professional. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


Lisa and her team were great. They explained what I needed to do. They answered questions quickly and we had fun along the way.


Angie has been phenomenal to work with! I needed a loan approved on a Saturday- boom within 15 minutes she had an approval and we were off to the races looking at houses. Throughout the whole loan process she keeps client's stress levels at zero masterfully guiding them through the home purchase process. I highly recommend Global State Mortgage and especially Angie Kettwig for all of your home mortgage needs!


Angie has been absolutely amazing to me. She always made sure I was thoroughly informed about everything in my home buying process and provided the best service.


They are very nice and very helpful. Especially since they were working with me out of state.


Great experience! Very knowledgeable and helpful. Everyone we worked with were friendly and responsive.


Angie Kettwig has been the best loan officer, she worked non stop on our home loan. She was also able to get my son into his first home at the young age of 19. Her guidance was top notch. Also would like to add that no text went un answered no matter day or time. She was truly amazing.


Highly recommend Angie! We were having alot of issues with our first lenders and Angie came to the rescue and got us a loan in 8 business days just so we could meet our closing date!


I have used Lisa in the past and definitely wanted her to handle my refinance again. She makes the process so easy, love working with her and her team!


Lisa and staff are wonderful to work with!


Lisa was amazing! She made the process quick and easy. We would highly recommend her and her team!


Angie was fantastic! Immediately responsive and available seemingly at all hours. I thought buying a house would be much more complicated, but she made it easy. Put together several mortgage options and talked through the pros and cons of each. Very open and transparent. Highly recommend.


Mike is excellent to work with! He went above and beyond to make things work and worked around our schedule to make it most convenient for us.


Alli Azbill is amazing!! I would highly recommend her to any friend or family member looking to purchase a home. I stepped foot in her office twice, she knew how busy my work kept me and rounded up everything she needed from me! She is very good at what she does!! Thank you for all your hard work Alli, you are appreciated!! 💜


My husband and I recently closed on our house, and Alli was amazing to work with. She answered all our questions quickly and made sure we understood each step of the process. Even after our closing, Alli has still been there for us and was super willing to meet face to face when we’ve received mail that we were unsure what to do with! Would highly recommend!! Thank you Alli!


Alli was recommended by our reqltor and worked very closely together on paper work and loan information. She was was efficient and kind. Worked with us and assisted in a fast closing date and provided great service and detailed information so it was easy to understand. I would recommend her to anyone!!


Alli was awesome I highly recommend having Alli help with your mortgage needs! We were first time home buyers and she made the process as smooth as possible! Quickly answered any questions we had and explained everything very well! She does great work!


Very professional! Keep in touch along the whole process! Would recommend her to anyone, as i have already! Lol! She makes sure all the I's are dotted and the T's are crossed!


Angie was very communicative and available to help clear up questions and concerns throughout our process of becoming first-time homebuyers. I felt that honest advice was offered in regards to which options would be best for our particular situation. Thank you!
