As an Associate Broker with a Real Estate Firm in a neighboring state, I had significant anxiety about working with an out of state lender. However, Lauren and her team quickly put those fears at ease. Incredibly responsive, fast acting and on top of it. From a fellow professional’s standpoint, the service was top-notch. And while I normally hesitate to speak for my clients, I doubt this particular client would mind my saying that she too was extremely satisfied with the service. Thanks again and hope to work with you again in the future!

We recently utilized Lauren Juhl and her team at Excel for a new mortgage and they went above and beyond at every possible opportunity, making things easier for us every step of the way. We were first time homebuyers and Lauren helped us navigate the complicated process with professionalism, extreme competence, and prompt communication. Highly recommend this group for anyone in the market for a mortgage broker, you won't be disappointed.

I found Lauren through these google reviews and I can confirm they are all true! She helped us realize a dream we didn't think was possible. She was always there with a timely response to any question and made the process very smooth. She's extremely knowledgeable about the business and works to find solutions that meet your needs.

I can’t' say enough positive things about the entire team at Excel, including Corey, Lauren, Kaitlyn, and Susan. First, they went the extra mile to make sure our offer stood out in a very competitive situation. Once our offer was accepted, the sellers had an aggressive closing timeline which we further complicated by needing to close early due to a scheduling conflict. Not only did Excel come up with some great mortgage options, but we were also able to close in less than three weeks. If you're in the market for a mortgage lender in northern Colorado, give Excel a call. It was a great experience from beginning to end.

Lauren is on top of your mortgage. If you have any question she'll have an answer or get you one asap.

This is the third time that Excel has assisted me with financing a home or refinance. On all occasions they were extremely helpful, and provided excellent communication throughout the process. Once our loan was complete, they even reached out a month later to ensure our new lender has sent us payment coupons for our new 1st loan payment. Excellent Customer Service! This is a great company to work with!

Working with Lauren was an absolute breeze. As a first time home buyer, I had limited knowledge about the financial side of home buying. Lauren walked me through every step of the process, explaining every detail in an easy to understand way. One of the best aspects to working with Lauren is her responsiveness. She is available almost any time and is super easy to get in touch with through any means. I can not recommend Lauren enough for anyone looking to buy a home. I will certainly go back to Lauren for my next purchase.
15:14 07 Sep 21
Lauren and her crew were great we highly recommend her and crew! You ladies are awesome!! Thanks for everything!
15:11 04 Sep 21
As a first time home buyer there are unlimited unknowns when it comes to the loan process. I still couldn't articulate the financing process if I tried. But Lauren most certainly can! In fact she made the process so easy and painless that it was never stressful for my wife and I. As a mortgage broker she finds the best loans out there for her clients. And goes above and beyond. We agreed to a loan about a month before closing with a 3.1% interest rate. We were happy with it and all set to close. Lauren could have stopped there, but she didn't. She emailed me about two weeks before closing letting me know that she found us an even better rate. It ended up being 2.7% and the closing costs/monthly spend ended up also being lower than the original loan we agreed to. Lauren is also super communicative and very responsive, and a true professional in her field. We are so happy we chose to work with Lauren and highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you, Lauren!

My wife and I purchased our first home with Laurens help 2 yrs ago without a hitch and just did a refinance. Lauren was there the whole way and explained everything so we could make the right decisions. I will use Lauren again and recommend her to family and friends looking to purchase a new home or refinance.Thank you Lauren!
16:35 02 Sep 21
I wanted to refinance my home, and after researching many mortgage companies, I’m glad I went with Excel!! They were very professional, prompt, and were able to help me figure out which loan scenario worked best for me. I’ll definitely use them again in the future for any refinancing or purchasing. Thanks LJ!!

Refinancing our home was super simple with Excel, Bryan E. and his team had everything ironed out and into simple to complete steps and automated processes.I would recommend to anyone thinking about financing or refinancing to give Excel a call or email.
12:24 26 Jul 21
My real-estate agent recommended that I give Excel Financial Mortgage group a call, he said that they are the best, how many times have you heard that. I took his recommendation and called a gentleman named Chris. After speaking with him I decided to use Excel Financial for my Mortgage company. Chris and Bryan walked me through everything that I needed. It was one of the most pleasant experiences I've had with a Mortgage company. From start to finish I had my closing on my home in 25 days without a hiccup. I highly recommend Excel Financial Mortgage group. Thanks again; Bryan Emmett and Chris Lawhead
17:55 25 Jul 21
Many thanks to Lauren and her team. Lauren was able to get my husband and I a lower interest rate then our previous lender was willing to give us for the refinance of our home and cash back. Many lenders try to get you to go with a longer loan term to reduce your payment but in the long run you end up paying more. My husband and I wanted to borrow from our equity to do some home repairs and remodeling but we definitely didn’t want to extend the life of our loan, Lauren heard our request and made it happen.
15:31 15 Jul 21
We just refinanced with Matt W. as our broker at Excel. We got great terms for our loan and Matt's communication and responsiveness were outstanding. From the beginning he was transparent and held himself and his team to a high standard. If I have any future mortgage lending needs I'll be calling Matt at Excel without hesitation.
05:13 15 Jul 21
Lauren and her team took great care of us during the home buying process. She was very responsive and was always on top of things. Closing was a breeze.
19:06 06 Jul 21
I would never have expected this level of customer service before having experienced it for myself!
00:59 23 Jun 21
Bryant was very professional and friendly through our whole refinance. He was informative and also responsive whenever we had questions or concerns. It's probably one of the best experiences we've had for finance. We would definitely recommend him and Excel to family and friends.
19:21 22 Jun 21
We were referred to Lauren after another company couldn’t get us to closing for over 6 months… She got it done in a matter of weeks. She will be our go-to person from now on. Thank you Lauren you’re amazing 🙌🏾These are the people you want to use. They’re everything a professional service company is supposed to be and more.

Lauren and her team seriously blew me away! My fiancé and I shopped lenders for our new construction home and had multiple bad experiences until we got connected with Lauren! She was so friendly, efficient and AVAILABLE which gave us the peace of mind we needed during our entire home building process! It was so nice to be kept in the loop through everything and never once having to question if EFG was hard at work for us. Rhonda was also awesome and extremely diligent when it came to answering all of our questions. We closed on time and everything fell into place perfectly in large part due to Lauren and the team at Excel! Forever grateful!
16:25 25 May 21
Chis and his team are the best! They're quick and responsive! Very informative and professional! Got me into a house within a month!!Will definitely do buiseness here again! Thank you guys for everything!!
14:42 13 May 21
Lauren Juhl far exceeded my expectations, with timely communication, attention to detail, and quick turn around for my recent refi. I would recommend her without hesitation.
18:59 03 May 21
We primarily worked with Chris. He was professional and responsive and met deadlines with ease. He was knowledgeable and helpful. All staff members we interacted with were fantastic. Thank you
05:13 30 Apr 21
Excellent communications, professional service and followup. I would highly recommend.
16:32 28 Apr 21
Excel financial is my go to lender! They are amazing and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking to refinance, start a new loan, or just ask questions about getting approved for a first time loan! I have used them to close on my house and refinance it - they got me a screaming deal on my interest rate which saved me hundreds per month!I couldn’t be happier with the Excel team. They are fast, professional, and the best of all - willing to shop around to make sure you find the best loan!Go Excel and thank you so much!
18:56 01 Apr 21
Working on my home mortgage process with Lauren Juhl and her team was an absolute pleasure. They were always available to help answer any questions that I had and they worked with my lender to get me the best rate possible and as many credits toward closing as possible :). I am very pleased with my experience and recommend them if you want someone that will make this stressful process of buying a home a breeze. If I need any help in the future I know I can reach out to Lauren, even if I just have a simple question. Thanks Lauren and her team for your amazing work and dedication to your profession! 🙂
13:40 29 Mar 21
Great experience working with Excel and Lauren Juhl. She got things done so efficiently and quickly!
11:37 26 Mar 21
Lauren is amazing. If you email her, you ALWAYS get a response within the hour. She does all the work for you. We changed things around on her last minute and she had no problem with it, got us the numbers we were looking for that night! She collaborated with everyone for us. She treated us like royalty, and made us feel so protected during the process. Couldn't recommend her more. 5 stars. Lauren is the best.
17:24 12 Mar 21
I’ve done home loans and refinancing with other companies before, and I must say that I will never do it again without the help of Lauren Juhl! Lauren is top notch in every aspect. With other companies I felt as though I was just a number and they didn’t care about what I had to say nor did they show urgency. Lauren is very responsive, was very helpful with all my questions and took the stress out of the process! Would 100% recommend
23:48 10 Mar 21
21:01 23 Feb 21
Highly recommend using the team over at Excel Financial! Very professional and excellent service on refinancing my two loans. Would recommend to my mother and I love my mother!
20:33 23 Feb 21
Bryan, Chris and the entire team were great. Kept us in the loop the entire time and got things done efficiently!
20:32 23 Feb 21
Excellent! Highly recommended. Lauren J. was responsive and answered all our first time home buyer questions. Also saved us lots of money!!
16:36 20 Feb 21
Matt Weaver is a great person to work with, very professional, honest, responsive and willing to help even with more difficult cases. I strongly recommend him as a lender.

Lauren was easy to work with. All information was clear and the process was complete in a timely manner.
18:07 06 Jan 21
Lauren Juhl is all over her social media regarding her career, which initially made me comfortable reaching out. I had been dragging my feet in the process of buying my house, but she swept me up and gently shoved me through everything (I use those words because I needed that to happen). She was always super responsive, super helpful, and never made me feel bad about my dumb questions or concerns.Would highly recommend as she streamlined everything and I think we closed very quickly.Shoutout to Rhonda for all the help as well!
16:06 05 Jan 21
I have done a number of deals recently with Lauren Juhl at Excel Financial. She and her team are true professionals and are great to work with. As a real estate professional it is of the utmost importance to me to work with lenders who, above all, are responsive and knowledgeable and Lauren is both. I don't know how many times she has been available to myself and my clients first thing in the morning, in the evenings and on weekends to get offers submitted and questions answered. Excel is usually able to find my clients great rates as well!
21:01 01 Jan 21
Lauren is the ideal broker to work with as a Realtor: she is in constant communication with my buyers and me, she is available always, and most importantly, she gets us to the closing table without a hitch. She makes my job easy and helps keep my buyers at ease through the whole home-buying process!
19:42 01 Jan 21
Great experience. Jen was readily available to discuss any questions I had during the mortgage process and helped me through buying my first home!
22:05 19 Nov 20
If you want to purchase a home in Northern Colorado, look no further than these guys! I was a first time buyer and had some experience dealing with multiple lenders and loan officers, some of whom barely gave me the time of day. Doug Davidson, the loan officer and broker assigned to me by Excel Financial, provided service that was far above and beyond what I had expected. He picked a lender with a great rate and reasonable fees and was almost always available to answer my questions. He also provided me a ton of financial advice when we were deciding on the rate points and terms and made sure we were able to close quickly. Highly recommended.
05:37 29 Oct 20
It has been a tough year, but there is always a silver lining! I was unbelievably impressed with my recent experience with Excel Financial this past September! Lauren Juhl made my FIRST home refinancing experience a memorable one. Lauren and her team made this process easy, and I truly felt like they were working for me. From effective communication to the overall effort given to this process was one of the best customer service experiences I've ever been apart of! My interest rate was phenomenal and they worked diligently to provide me with best possible service and total savings. I stand by Excel Financial Mortgage Brokers and so should you! THANK YOU for everything you do Lauren 🙂
23:38 21 Oct 20
Very pleased with Excel Financial!! Would recommend them 100%.
14:46 21 Aug 20
Chris and Bryan are amazing. Keep up the good work!
14:39 21 Aug 20
Working with Wes Daniels was great in the purchase of our second home/ investment property. He was always on top of everything from explaining anything from interest rates, buying points, unwarrantable condos, recommendations of home inspectors, and different types of loan options. His availability was superb. He was so on top of everything he impressed the heck out of our realtor. He then passed me on to Bridget Pasquinzo who helped out at the end with all of the financials. What a team!!!!! I would highly recommend these professional mortgage brokers. They made our transaction so easy and less stressful. Thanks Wes and Bridget, and to all of the other people that probably helped out behind the scenes.
00:27 18 Aug 20
We had a fabulous experience with Bryan Emmett. He helped us a bunch and got us the best rate available. With all the current CoVid going on, we had a professional closing with everything lined out perfectly, although different from anything we've ever done. Thanks for helping us out!
16:23 28 May 20
21:19 18 May 20
Lauren was an absolute pleasure to work with! She helped us get a loan to purchase our first home with an extremely low rate- Highly recommend using Lauren at Excel Financial!
20:25 24 Apr 20
Very friendly and responsive team. They are helpful and courteous throughout our whole refi process. Matt Weaver did a great job taking us through the refinance process. And thanks too to Bridget Pasquinzo and her patience. We'll be coming back to them for future mortgage needs. Thanks guys!
17:14 17 Apr 20
Chris, Susana, and the rest of Team Paz are outstanding to work with and I can't recommend them highly enough. They walk you through everything and are extremely flexible and are truly an advocate for anyone requiring mortgage financing.
23:35 14 Apr 20
Super helpful understanding and trustworthy people.
19:05 02 Apr 20
Always a pleasure working with Chris and team Paz!
12:33 11 Mar 20
These folks are absolutely phenomenal! The team I worked with while purchasing my home were very knowledgeable, had fantastic customer service and kept me in the loop every step of the way. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
04:28 12 Feb 20
Bryan and his team went above and beyond for us! They were able to close faster than anyone thought possible. Great company, great folks. We will not be doing business with anyone else.
22:00 24 Jan 20
I was impressed with how my loan was handled when a series of snafus occurred with the lender. Long story short Xcel Financial made it right by paying some expenses that were not anticipated and not figured in originally. Matt and the company unilaterally did the right thing so I would not incur those missed expenses. Cudos to Excel!!
03:17 04 Jan 20
18:51 19 Dec 19
I thought Lauren Juhl was great. She worked really hard to make our situation work and it did.
22:38 03 Dec 19
When it was time to buy our first home my Wife and I chose to go with Excel Financial after being pointed that way by a friend. Bryan and Erin were amazing and answered the many questions we had quickly and accurately. They were great advisers the whole process through and helped us secure an amazing rate. Thank you Excel, we are in our successfully in our first home and couldn't be happier!
01:14 27 Nov 19
Things were seamless with the mortgage process eventhough I had an expedited closing. Team Paz was professional and moved like lightening to get things done. A big thank you to Wes Daniels, Chris Pasquinzo, and everyone who worked so hard to make my dream of owning a home a reality. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
09:29 07 Nov 19
Seamless from start to finish. Always accessible. No hidden fees or surprises. In the midst of general stressors of buying a home and refinancing, you want to know someone has your back. And the team at Excel definitely does. I recommend them without any hesitation or reservations.

Very good experience, got a great rate that other place just couldn't match.
19:34 25 Oct 19
We worked with Daniel Diaz-Bravo and Lauren Juhl to buy our first house and we were blown away with how smooth everything went! We really appreciate all of their support and hard work to get us the best rates and make sure we were well taken care of. They both went above and beyond and I am so thankful that we choose them to work with for our first house loan! I would highly recommend both Daniel and Lauren!
22:26 15 Oct 19
Matthew got me a great deal on a cash-out refi and made it happen exceptionally fast. There were no un-forseen issues and he and his team took care of them very well.
21:16 09 Oct 19
I have used Excel Financial for two home loans. They know how to take care of their clients!First loan experience- I was using someone else when I went under contract. They misled me about the amount I had to bring closing. TeamPaz was recommended to me and they came to the rescue. They did an unbelievable job and we closed!Second loan experience- I made a bad decision and went under contract with another lender. It was one of the worst experiences I have ever had. Very stressful! I realized I made a huge mistake and called TeamPaz. They came to the rescue again!! They are very professional, responsive, and know the mortgage industry forwards and backwards!They will be my lender for life!
23:28 04 Oct 19
I worked with Daniel Diaz-Brazo and Lauren Juhl who were both amazing to work with. They were always super friendly, and clear communicators. Even in my high times of stress, Daniel would call me and try to relieve my stress by explaining the entire process and walk me through it all. With complete certainty, I would recommend working with them!
20:50 03 Oct 19
Couldn’t be happier with the effort Lauren gave. The ease of the purchase of my home was second to none, and was enjoyable throughout. I highly recommend her! Thanks for making it awesome and so easy Lauren!
00:00 03 Oct 19
If you need a mortgage look no further! Lauren Juhl is the best to work with! She knows what’s she’s doing and can help get you into the best loan possible. Lauren and the entire team are so helpful. They know how to get stuff done quick and painless! They are amazing and I will refer everyone I know to them!
15:41 01 Oct 19
This was our first time working with a mortgage broker and Bryan Emmett was fantastic. He clearly communicated throughout the process and never hesitated to answer our questions. Highly recommend!
18:09 27 Sep 19
22:46 28 Aug 19
Bryan Emmett went above and beyond for my new mortgage. He was so helpful and knowledgeable in all areas of my loan.The office staff was incredible!Thank you to Excel!
22:48 25 Jun 19
Chris and Brian are amazing. They are very knowledgeable and always available. Their security protocol is top notch. I am super impressed with this business no complaints at all!
02:47 19 May 19
Bryan walked me thru the whole process from start to end. He was always available for all my questions and concerns and made the home buying experience as easy as possible. From helping me get my credit scores to an acceptable range to home insurance shopping, he was always willing to help. He has helped 3 in our family to buy homes in the last 3 years, and we couldn't have done it without him.
20:11 17 May 19
I have refinanced a few times with Excel Financial. They got me excellent rates, very knowledgeable, and answered all my questions without any pressure. If looking to purchase or refinance I highly recommend Excel Financial.
15:05 28 Dec 18
Matt Amundson at Excel Financial group went above and beyond to get me a loan when others couldn't. Highly recommended !
22:16 20 Nov 18
If you are looking for a loan Excel Financial Group is the place to go! They are very professional, timely and helpful. They can get you the best deal. Thanks Bryan for all the great advice!
18:29 30 Aug 18
I recently worked with Doug Davidson at Excel Financial Group to get a loan to buy my home. Buying a home initially was a stressful and intimidating process, but Doug made it very easy and enjoyable. He regularly went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and understood everything, was available whenever I needed him, and provided me a loan with a great rate! . Thanks Doug!!
16:54 10 Aug 18
Chris, Bridget and the team at Excel Financial Group were so helpful throughout our entire process. They were wonderful at communicating and making sure we were all on the same page, frequently checking in to see if we had questions. My husband and I highly recommend them for anyone looking for an honest lender, who cares about their clients.
19:35 25 Feb 18
We were sitting on a home loan for many years that had a much higher interest rate than what is available today. We worked with Excel to get a refinance quote and lock-in a new rate. We were able to drop our Mortgage Insurance as well. Once the refi came through, our new payment was significantly lower. The experience with Excel was great and we're very happy with the result.
23:49 10 Jan 18
Brad was amazing helping us get to a point we could get a loan then helping with the loan process it self. Answered MANY questions and always awesome
