My wife and I just went through a new home purchase while finishing it with Matt through Fathead Valley Mortgage, and he truly made it a great experience for us. I highly recommend working through Matt on your next home purchase!!

Matt was amazing to work with. He personally walked me step-by-step through the whole mortgage process. He went above and beyond to make my unique financial situation easy to deal with to get me into my home. Thanks Matt!

The team at Flathead Valley Mortgage were super helpful in helping us actually do two purchase closings at the same time. One here in Whitefish and the other out of state (they weren't writing the loan). They were super helpful in making sure that everything was in line to do such a complicated task all at once and I'll definitely be working with them in the future!

Process was the best and most simple that we ever have done in a home refinance. Thank you to the flathead valley mortgage team for helping us out.

My husband and have have tried a few times since we’ve been married to get a home loan. Each time (prior to recent events) have been a terrible experience. The loan officers were vague and unhelpful; not really explaining why we were approved for so little or what needed to be done for debt consolidation, or to be approved for more. Then in January we had the opportunity to do a consult with Regis Dahl a mortgage broker at Flathead Valley Mortgage and it couldn’t have gone better. Regis explained everything, was very helpful and was always available with whatever questions or concerns we had along the way. We even got approved for more than we expected. We literally wouldn’t have our first home if it wasn’t for him. We would recommend Flathead Valley Mortgage to any or all in the valley looking for an amazing brokerage team.

Adelina worked miracles! Not only did I get a low interest rate but we closed EARLY. She made the process easy, streamlined, and made sure I understood everything I was signing. Thanks Adelina!!!

If we could give 100 stars, we would! We have gotten multiple mortgages over the years, and never have we had such a smooth, fast, or simple experience as we had with Matt and Adelina. These two are on top of things! They worked around the clock for us, answering our calls on the weekend, emailing late at night, Matt even called us multiple times while he was on vacation in Mexico just to give us updates on our loan application. We shopped the mortgage to our bank; Chase, as well as FVM and we were shocked... Not only do you get the wonderful personalized service of dealing with a small business, but FVM got us a larger loan amount at a better rate! As if that wasn't enough, they got the whole deal closed in 9 days as opposed to Chase who quoted us 4-6 weeks. Thank you Matt and Adelina! We will be forever customers!

Matt went above and beyond to help get me my loan. It was a unique situation that I took to other lenders and didn't get much help. A family member got me in touch with Matt and he took it head on. The property was in Great Falls, MT and he helped from Kalispell. Hes super easy to work with. He tried over and over. Even after I lost hope! But he did it! I ​was in Alaska during closing, but he even lined out a notary to meet me in a small town to finish the deal. I highly recommend him to help anyone! I'll be coming back.

I have used Matt 2 times. The first when I bought my first house and the second was a refi. Matt really went the extra mile to help explain everything to me and make sure I was comfortable with everything before moving forward. He work hard both times to find the best deal for me. I would 100% recommended Matt to all my friends and family looking for a mortgage or to refinance.

Even though my income and borrowing power was limited (as a locally working Montanan) Matt spent lots of time researching the best options for a loan and communicating clearly with me about those options. Matt’s firm made the mortgage process easy to understand! If you’re in education, the service industry, a nurse, or any other working individual who makes a Montana wage, Matt will work hard to provide information about mortgages available to you. He is willing to go above and beyond even for small loans. In a time when the real estate market is extra competitive I would absolutely recommend working with Matt to determine what’s possible!

I was in a unique situation in regards to my job and future income, and I wasn’t sure I could qualify for a VA loan. Matt went above and beyond to get me prequalified, at times even dealing directly with underwriting to make sure the details of my situation were clearly explained. He answered all my questions along the way and kept me very informed as to where we were in the process, which helped reduce the stress involved with purchasing a home. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a true professional in the mortgage business.

We had a pretty complicated loan process and Matt was on top of every detail. I never felt concerned as to whether or not things were getting handled. He was always multiple steps ahead of the process! He was incredibly responsive and straightforward with what needed to happen. I will definitely be using him again in the future and highly recommend him for anyone with any type of loan. Thanks again Matt!

I won't say a hero cause, what is a hero? And I'm talking about the dude here. Sometimes there's a man, well, he's the man for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that's the dude, in Los Whitefish Montana. Giving the best rates best service and excellent to work with its Matt Rizzolo.

We had a complicated loan refinance situation right from the start and Matt wasn’t at all phased or confused by our situation. He assured us that he would find a way to make it work and he did. I’m a naturally anxious person and choosing to work with someone on a loan was a scary and overwhelming task as this my first time doing anything like this. Matt had come highly recommended by my mom who had just refinanced which helped to calm my fears. I’m sure there were times we annoyed the heck out of Matt with our constant questions, changes of plans, and how long it took for us to finish up our remodeling projects and close the deal, but he stayed the course with us and we are thrilled to have a good loan in the end!

This was our first home buying experience and we really thought we wouldn’t be able actually buy one. We got letters from other places saying we need to wait but Matt at Black Diamond really put In effort to help us out especially In this crazy time! We were able to sign mostly via email and I never thought buying a house would be so stress free. Thanks again Matt!!

Matt was so easy to work with, as a loan officer he always made sure to explain things to us and calm any nerves we may have had in the process of obtaining our mortgage. Matt is responsive and very good at what he does I highly recommend his services.

Our home buying situation was unconventional and set up quite the challenging road for Matt, however, he did not let anything stop us from purchasing our home! He was fast, prompt, and worked seven days a week for us to get us what we needed. We are so thankful for him and are forever clients!

Our situation was a bit unconventional and Matt was a beacon of light in sea of unknowns. He researched every possible option and angle to get us into our dream spread. Suffice to say he is absolutely the best and brightest in his field. We would have likely given up without him but he stuck with us through it all, answering every dumb question I could throw at him.
