Read what others have said about working with us:

As a realtor, I ask Buyers and Sellers to go thru the mortgage process on a daily basis. It is quite humbling when you have to go thru the process yourself. However I have to say that Dean Slatev and his staff have the process down to a fine art! It went very smoothly and was quite painless. I simply uploaded the documents they requested to their secured website and Dean took it from there. It seemed like a very short time from the date that I started the process to the actual closing. I would definitely like to recommend Dean Slatev and Local Lending Oklahoma to Buyers and Homeowners who want to refi. It was easy peasy!!!

Jason G.

Dean and his assistant Tanya were the BEST! They made everything so easy and were very responsive with any questions! Austin and I were beyond pleased with the experience we had buying our first home with Dean. 10/10 recommend them to anyone looking to buy a home! Thank you guys so much for everything ☺️

Kellee O.

Hands down Dean and his team are the best. As a first time homeowner they made my process easy. They helped with everything and stood by my side until the end.

Fredrica N.

Dean went above and beyond to accommodate us on our refinance and to ensure it happened in a timely manner. He responded quickly to our emails and helped with any issues or questions we had, even during nights and weekends. He helped make the process as quick and painless as possible and we would definitely use him again.

Troy T.

Dean was great to work with. Whenever he needed something, he was quick to ask and keep the process moving, but didn't bug me unnecessarily with the details of my refinance. Saved me $150 a month on my mortgage and I barely had to do anything to make it happen.

Ben P.

Great company to get a mortgage with.

Bill D.

Working with Dean was great. He was very flexible with our schedules and went above and beyond for us! They worked very hard for us! Definitely recommend!

Brittany G.

Dean Slatev has been nothing short of amazing. We came to him after a very unfortunate loan situation due to the fact that the previous company we were with did not know what they were doing. Dean was able to not only crush our doubts, but he let his actions speak for themselves. We got approved and closed in just under 3 weeks after coming to him with a very complex situation and he did nothing but amaze me. 10 out of 10 - I would recommend him again. He was always in contact with me and if he wasn’t able to respond right away, he had his lovely team reach out and let me know what was going on. I never felt in the dark and this truly amazed me and put me at ease during an extremely stressful time. If you are having doubts about any lending officer/lending company at all, I would recommend switching to Dean Slatev because of how amazing he is to work with. Extremely professional and very knowledgeable. We loved working with him and we will continue to recommend him to all our friends and family. Thanks again, Dean!!

Dean tells it like it is upfront with the best deals he had available. Got an offer on the table and just like he said the other big mortgage companies try to match it or do better to win your business. I'd let the other mortgage companies know now if they can't beat what Dean lays out in front of you from the beginning, don't bother running your credit elsewhere. Help out the smaller local businesses. Some of his deals had smaller rate lock days than the usual 30 days which made it scary but kept me updated all throughout the process. He was very informative all the way through the process and any issues that we ran into he knew who to call to get it handled.

Justin F.

Several members of my family have used Local Lending in the past and they referred us to them when we went to buy a new house. Dean and Tanya were simply amazing. They worked hard to get us a fantastic rate on our mortgage, and any time a snag would come up they were on it in a second. We had two sets of friends purchasing a house during the same time frame we were, and they both ran into issues with their lenders and stuff not getting completed. This never happened to us. I highly recommend Local Lending for your sanity!

Melissa G.

100% Satisfaction! My experience with Dean was excellent...couldn't have been better. Got me a great deal for both the short and long term. Would highly recommend him to friends, family, and otherwise."

Eric S.

With all the mess going on in the country right now, Dean walked us through the whole thing and made it happen.  Can’t find any better!  

Chad B.

Working with Dean was great! Beyond the fact that he went above and beyond to get the deal done and financing secured; he was honest and trustworthy, and a man of his word. Traits hard to come by! Our first time working with Dean a mistake was made with the loan that would have cost us a few thousand dollars. I point out the mistake not because it was made (we are all human- it happens!) but rather to highlight that Dean was going to eat the financial burden of the mistake so we didn’t get stuck with it. He stood behind his word and owned that mistake so the deal could close! The next time we had to purchase a house we didn’t even bother shopping around. I called Dean and said, “whats the best deal that you have?” We closed on that house last week and we now have a relationship where I likely won’t use anyone else. If you have financing needs for your next real estate purchase I would highly recommend Dean. He will make it happen and do right by you!

Kenneth S.

Dean was amazing - helped me keep my client deal together. Great communication and he really cares about the service Local Lending Oklahoma provides. Excellent resource and partner!

Marjorie C.

Dean worked on this deal and got it done for us! I am very thankful for his ability to get things done!

Trey W.

Dean was awesome to work with. Super flexible and worked his tail off. There were some snags in the financing side but he made it easy to work through!

Jeremie P.

Dean does great work, very knowledgeable and works fast to give you the best rates

Kyle L.

Dean is the best in the business. A true mortgage professional. He takes the time with each client to understand their unique situation and what options would be best for them. Dean and his team are very knowledgeable on the ins and outs of mortgages and know how to get to the finish line in a hurry. If you are ever curious if you are truly in the best loan he is one you can trust to call and get a honest response. I would recommend anyone that currently owns a home or is looking into home ownership to contact him and see what you could be saving!
Thanks for everything Local Lending Oklahoma!

Kurt P.

It has been a wonderful experience working with Dean! We are first time home buyers and didn't know anything about the homebuying process. He helped us the whole way, explained everything to us, and was very patient with us. An amazing quality about Dean is his rapid response time. Any time we called him, he always answered or sent a text saying he would call us back in a little bit, and he always did. I am very grateful for his help and highly recommend Local Lending Oklahoma!

Jacqueline H.

100% Satisfaction. Dean and Slate 5 was great to work with on the refinance. We also like the process of using the online tools. Thanks!

Lee G.

I recommend Dean. He did a very good job getting my loan. I was looking around in the city at a few places and they couldn’t do it for me. But Dean did it for me. He’s the best in Oklahoma City!

Juan H.

Dean is definitely a machine, and a little human in there too, actually a lot of human. He is super understanding of every situation and works his hardest to make things happen. I am referring anyone and everyone to him for a mortgage. Thanks Dean!!

Chris B.

Local Lending Oklahoma was very efficient and helpful at getting me approved for my first home loan. They made my home buying experience less stressful! I sure do appreciate them.

Sam M.

I used Dean for a refi and process was great. Great rate, barely any fees, and Dean was a pleasure to deal with. Thanks again For everything. 5 Stars across the board.

Norman T.

Dean was a pleasure to work with - I found him responsive, thorough and helped with my endless questions.
I would gladly recommend him to others in search of a knowledgeable, genuine professional. In my particular situation we had twists, turns not to mention a very quick deadline .
Dean helped us meet my objective so I'm a very happy client.

Margie C.

You can get a hold of Dean very quickly when you have any question at all. He's a big help. The frequent communication and answering of questions was my biggest priority in anybody working with me during this process. He also seemed pretty tireless.

Morgan D.

The world needs more of Dean "The Mortgage Machine". I would love to help get the word out. Thanks again for EVERYTHING you did for our family. We love the home and I still wake up in awwww that we own it! We cannot express our gratitude and appreciation enough for Dean “The Mortgage Machine” Slatev. Within a few days, we could tell he was honest and sincere. His extensive knowledge and experience really shined through at all times. He was able to answer all of our questions in plain language on the spot no matter what time of day it was. We did not feel like a customer we felt like “FAMILY”. Dean walked us through the entire process and kept us informed at all times. Building a home is very stressful and demanding, along with being first time homeowners we were very nervous and overwhelmed. Dean created a stress free environment during the mortgage process; it was relieving to know that we could focus on the details of our beautiful home instead of having the extra stress of the dreaded mortgage process. We are definitely customers for life. Keep in touch!

Shana S.

Again, the Mortgage Machine came through for us and made the process seem easy. He helped us resolve any challenges that came up. If we had questions he worked to get the answers and kept us informed every step of the way. Thanks again Dean! We look forward to working with you in the future.

Nancy M.

We purchased our new home in March with the help of Dean from Local Lending Oklahoma. Our overall experience was fantastic! He was always quick to answer all questions or concerns we had throughout the entire process. Dean was extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of the lending process. Thanks to his efficiency we were able to move our closing date up a full 2 weeks! I would highly recommend Local Lending Oklahoma to anyone looking for a smooth lending experience.

Michelle W.

The experience was by far, excellent! I am very thankful for you helping me to obtain the financing to purchase the new condo and making it a reality. Opportunities do not come around often and you were a big contributor in ensuring I was able to make the purchase! It has been four years since a condo like this has been on the market and I was able to secure it because of Local Lending Oklahoma, and an awesome real estate agent! Thanks again, Dean!

Jason C.

Dean is a great guy. who will get you where you need to be at a awesome rate. he is honest and will work hard for you. I personally enjoyed his work ethic and honesty during my home buying experience. I will use Dean again for my next home purchase in the future.

Tony K.

Dean has done 2 mortgages for us, couldn’t be happier! He is happy to explain, go over, find answers. He is the best!!

Laura B.

Dean truly is a “Machine” that works until you are completely satisfied with no surprises at closing. I have purchased several properties over the years and wish I had known and used Dean for all of them.

Matthew R.

Dean was outstanding to work with during the loan process. He went out of his way to make sure that I was comfortable with the entire process and was always available whenever I had questions. His hard work really stood out, as he understands the importance of being ahead of the curve when purchasing a home. Overall, very pleased.

Scott S.

Dean went above and beyond in making the process of moving into a new house as smooth as possible. Keeping me updated through every step, following up in a timely fashion, and working extremely hard for his client are just a few of many great qualities that Dean possesses. I would highly recommend using Local Lending Oklahoma in the future when buying a new house. Thanks Dean!

Michael T.

Dean "The Mortgage Machine" Slatev really does an excellent job at getting you a mortgage as promised. Past lenders, we’ve used in others states and in Oklahoma changed the requirements for lending to us halfway through the process. We told them the same information we told Dean and he talked to Local Lending Oklahoma and made sure through the whole process that there were no snares. He offered assistance quickly, we were able to get a hold of him within minutes of contacting him with a question, and he ever left us waiting for days. Previous mortgage lenders left on vacations or mysteriously disappeared for several days leaving us uncertain if we still had the home or not and with no other means to contact the company. Dean did not do this. In fact, he offered us encouragement through the whole process and clearly explained what we needed to do, what the next steps were, who we were waiting on and why plus checked in on us regularly. For example, my position requires a special code, etc. in order for a third party company to release my employment information to whomever, I tell them needs access to this information. Dean patiently answered my texts (after 5 pm) as I worked through with the company a way to get Dean what Local Lending Oklahoma required. When what the third party company offered was not all that Local Lending Oklahoma required Dean quickly problem solved with me to get what we needed with what official documents I had on hand. He then made sure Local Lending Oklahoma would accept these documents. This all happened in a matter of hours, not days like previous lender companies did to us and after normal business hours since that is when we could work on these types of requests. Dean was there for us all day long and never made us feel unimportant or that another client took precedence over us. We look forward to working with him again when the time comes to move into an even better home.

Nancy M.

After working with Dean all my worries of the mortgage process being difficult have been put to rest. He is very easy to work with and had the best rates in town. Great communication and I would recommend Dean to anyone looking to refi or buy a new home.

Trevor R.

Dean was fantastic doing the loan for my house. I had sought rates from other companies but his was the best. I also felt great knowing that he was local and not some huge national conglomerate. His years of experience and depth of knowledge were apparent as well. Thanks Dean the Mortgage Machine!

Patrick S.

Buying a home is the most important purchase anyone can make. There is no one better to get you through
the process than Dean and professional team. Dean is fun to work with, a local lender in Oklahoma, you
will be treated like a person and not a number with a national company, he has ton of experience in the
lending world and is an expert in the industry, he will get you the lowest rates possible, provides great
service, he's fast getting to closing, utilizes the most innovative technology, and he is in constant contact
through each step of the process, I highly recommend Dean and I have no reservations on recommending
him to my friends and family.

Mike B.

Dean Slatev is a "can't miss" mortgage broker to call. An extremely trustworthy individual who has your
best interest at heart!

Mike J.

Local Lending is a top notch lender with the best rates in Oklahoma. Fast, courteous and very professional
folks. I would definitely recommend them!

Ryan D.

I have worked with Dean, personally and professionaly over the past 15 years. I recommend Dean to all of
my clients, friends, and family as he is trustworty, efficient, and quick to the closing table. I consider him to
be an expert in the industry and like it that he is a local lender with a national company. He will get you the
best rates and terms available while making the process easy and fun.
