I'm a Branch Manager & Mortgage Advisor with NEO Home Loans, powered by Celebrity Home Loans, LLC | Company NMLS #227765 and have been in the mortgage and financial services industry since 2005. I have had extensive training in Mortgage lending, Sales and Sales Management, as well as Interviewing and Training. I carried licensing for both Life Insurance and Accident/Health Insurance for 9 years. I also received investment, financial & retirement planning education during this time period as well.
I currently hold a Mortgage Loan Originators License in the States of Minnesota and Wisconsin in accordance with the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System and Registry (NMLS) - License #328679.
I am always open to new ideas and marketing strategies both within the Financial Services industry, as well as outside. I take pride in my work and strongly feel that communication and the level of service one can provide is the foundation for any successful business. My ultimate goals are to continue to grow both on an individual level in my knowledge of the financial industry as well as business in general. I feel the more informed I am of both my industry as well as others, the greater value and support I can offer my clients.
I always enjoy meeting new people and continuing to develop a strong network of business relationships in various industries. I strive to give every moment of every day my best, so that I can succeed in not only acheiving my goals, but more importantly, helping others to reach theirs!
From a resource standpoint, at NEO Home Loans we have access to practically EVERY loan program and underwriting option that is available in the marketplace. We have all of the programs anyone else would have, but also many that traditional banks do not.
As a Consultant, I work to identify what the best underwriting course would be to take for your specific needs. We are very FAST and can have your loans closed within 30 days or less in most cases.
Best of all, our team is focused on helping families become successful homeowners, while not only providing guidance at the beginning of the loan process, but also throughout the entire home buying/refinancing experience and for the LIFE of the loan.
I was born and raised in Saint Paul, Minnesota right by Como Park and currently live in Oakdale, MN with my wife Ashley and our two Siberian Huskies, Thor & Loki. I often run our dogs through our nearby trails to burn up some of that “husky energy,” that never seems to wane. We both enjoy spending time with family and friends playing cards, going to concerts and golfing. Most nights are spent relaxing on our patio, going to the Drive-In Theater with our pups, reading, or watching a show on Netflix. It takes energy to keep up in this fast-paced industry, so we both frequent the gym and strive to eat right for optimum health. We also spend several hours each month on weekends and evenings doing volunteer educational work with families. I know when it comes to home loans it can seem overwhelming for many, but I take pride in making things as simple as possible for you. I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your financial goals!

“To Whom It May Concern,
We would like to extend our gratitude to Loan Specialist with Progressive Lending Solutions, Inc., David Youngs. David handled our account regarding a re-financing of a loan. This was a lengthy process, and David was with us all the way. He did a great job of explaining each step of the process. David was always professional on the phone. David was very punctual in returning our phone calls and e-mails, and was quick to respond with any questions. I think many of his calls happened on the week nights, when both of us were home at the same time. This was helpful in addressing any questions or concerns together. This earmarked his level of commitment to the job when willing to work past 5pm. On some occasions, David was very accommodating in contacting both of us separately to explain what was happening in the loan process, to ensure clarity.
I would highly recommend David as a loan consultant. He did his job well, and in the end, we were very satisfied with the results of our loan.”
Terry and Mary T. – Luverne, MN – Satisfied Clients

Dan Z. RN,ADN,BSM – Hastings, MN – Satisfied client
I was extremely happy with my experience with David Youngs of Progressive Lending. He did an excellent job communicating with me. I had attempted to refinance with my original lender, but was so disappointed that I dumped them and went with Progressive on the suggestion of my financial advisor. I couldn't be happier. They got me a lower rate and sent someone right to my house with all the paperwork for closing. I have already recommended them to my friends and family.
Ross W. – Saint Paul, MN – Satisfied Client
“To whom it may concern,
I have worked with David Youngs for a couple of years now. He has helped me navigate the financial crisis by helping me refinance both my personal and investment properties. David has kept up-to-speed on all the latest mortgage solutions that have come out, and throughout that time, he has kept track of which of my properties would qualify for those solutions. Therefore, I haven't had to stay on top of the latest offerings - David has reached out to me when a product has matched one of my properties.
With that said, we are planning on working through the last of my properties in a few months, at which point he will have guided me through the myriad of bad mortgages associated with the financial crisis, and he will have set me up to be successful with my investment properties. In addition, David has taken the time to listen to my goals, both personal and professional, and as such, he came forward with a re-finance solution that allowed me to reduce my personal risk on my home. David takes the time to ask questions and listen to my answers. He is creative and has helped me look at my situation from a different perspective. David clearly understands and is excited about - his enthusiasm and work ethic are second to none.
I highly recommend anyone who is looking to purchase or refinance homestead or investment properties to work with David.”
Karl J. – Elk River, MN – Satisfied Client

It is with great appreciation that I write this email to thank you for your herculean efforts and unfailing support to get my refinancing deal closed. You were always available, always pleasant and kind, and extremely helpful. You deserve a 10/10 my friend (and hopefully even a raise)! I will definitely be recommending you to friends and family. I am an extremely happy customer, and I so appreciate everything that you did for me. I look forward to staying in touch!
I hope you have a great night!”
Kathleen W. – Maplewood, MN - Satisfied Client
“When I considered refinancing my home, my financial planner told me, in no uncertain terms, to contact David Youngs and no one else. I was very happy I took his recommendation!
In our initial conversation he thoroughly discussed what he does and that he would do his best for me. David was gracious enough to suffer through my gathering required documents over a couple weeks' period of time. He kept me up-to-date on interest rates and when the best time to "lock-in"
would be. He was with me through every step of the process.
During this hectic housing refinancing business he took time for me. Oh, yes, he answered tons of questions I had and did it gladly! He is a real asset to the company. I would not hesitate working with him again.”
Susan L. – Minnetonka, MN – Satisfied Client
I just wanted to say, once again, how much I appreciated your help through my first home buying process. When I first started the process, I was warned by friends and family that it can be a real headache to deal with everything. Having closed yesterday, 5/3/12, I can say that, without a doubt, it was a very smooth process from my perspective. You were a great resource for any questions I may have had throughout the process, you were constantly available (days, nights, weekends, etc.), and you always made sure to keep me in the loop on progress.
Again, it was a pleasure to be able to work through this process with someone as dedicated to doing as great a job as I feel you did working on my file.
If I ever hear of anyone looking at purchasing or refinancing their home, I will not hesitate to point them your way.
Thank you again!”
Tyler C. – Coon Rapids, MN – Satisfied Client
“David did a great job managing Katie’s refinancing of her Minnetonka townhome. David was organized and thorough in managing the process and us in gathering the necessary documentation for the underwriters. He always acted very professionally and friendly, regardless of how many times he needed to repeatedly follow-up with us on requested documents. We wouldn’t hesitate in referring our friends to David who are interested in refinancing a property. Great job, David, and keep it up!”
Jason and Katie U. – Saint Paul, MN – Satisfied Client
“To whom it may concern,
My wife and I were going through a refinance process with Citi Mortgage, who held our mortgage at the time.
We were not getting the help we needed. It was a pain trying to work out details over the phone. The mortgage consultant would not return my calls. I felt ignored to say the least.
I decided to call David Youngs, not expecting that we would be able to refinance outside of Citi Mortgage. In that first conversation with David I realized that refinancing with Progressive was going to work and was a better option. David was able to get us into a loan that was exactly what we had been hoping for. We cut seven years off our mortgage and only added $50 to the mortgage payment. We also did not need an appraisal.
I appreciated David's openness and desire to answer my questions. I appreciated his desire to actually help us. It was enjoyable working with someone who has his level of expertise and knowledge concerning the mortgage business.
We hope to send business your way throughout the future.“
Chris and Amanda D. – Saint Paul, MN – Satisfied Clients
I've written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.
Details of the Recommendation: "I had the pleasure of working with David on a recent home loan refinance. His demeanor is friendly and very professional, both by phone and email. He responded almost instantly after our first contact with several loan options and estimated rates and costs, and stood by his quote throughout the process with no surprises along the way. I was able to get exactly what I was looking for, and the cost/rate combination easily beat any other estimate I had previously obtained. I needed a quick close, and the time between our first conversation and the date of closing was 45 days - a week earlier than anticipated. Thanks again!"

To Whom It May Concern:
I would just like to take a moment to say how much my husband and I appreciate all that David Youngs did for us. He was great! This was our first time buying a home and we knew nothing about the process but David did such a great job helping us and explaining everything to us. He was very prompt with answering our questions and returning our phone calls. Anything he was not sure about like our escrow and that whole process, he found the answers for us and got back to us right away with what we needed to know. Even after we closed on our home and the whole process was finished I called him to find out what we needed to do to get our home inspected for the escrow repairs and he was right on top of it and had all the info to me the same day that I called him. I would recommend him to anyone of my family members or friends.

“I felt that David took great care of my plan from start to finish. He did a good job of keeping me up to date of what step we were at and what was the next one. He was willing to spend the time to go over things more than once if I needed more clarification. Overall I was very satisfied and wouldn't hesitate to do business in the future.
Matt T. – Wyoming, MN – Satisfied Client
It has been such a pleasure working with you. Here is the email you asked for.
We began our refinancing journey by talking to our current lender Wells Fargo. Thinking that since we have all of our accounts with them and have been good customers they might want to keep our business and would try to find the best deal. This was clearly a mistake! They basically said the best they could do was 3.75% and in the end it wasn't worth it to refinance.
So then we made a very good decision. We contacted David at Progressive Lending (highly recommended by Nick Lawton). David immediately went to work researching all of our options and came back to us with a few different scenarios based on how much up front money we wanted to put down. He was able to get us down to 3.25% lowering our payments by $140.00 a month and our closing costs were even less than originally estimated!!
David was so easy to work with. He made sure that we were kept in the loop at every step of the process. He always had an answer for my crazy questions and always made us feel important. I wasn't convinced that refinancing was worth it at first, but David did the legwork to find the best deal and make it worthwhile. Needless to say we had a great experience and are very happy with the outcome.”

As a first time home buyer, I was not exactly sure what I was doing the day I called Progressive Lending Solutions. Fortunately, I had the great luck of having David Youngs be the person who answered the phone and guide me through the loan process from start to finish.
From the very beginning, I knew I was in the right hands. It turned out that I found a place rather quickly, which meant that the time between applying for the loan and closing would be short. David was on top of it; even having the quickest Underwriter work on it for me. Plus, I felt confident that I got the best loan for me at a great rate.
He always made sure that I knew what was going on and what was expected of me at each step. He would call or email me right away and inform me of any new development even into the evening. David was always available if I had a question, and I know that he worked many hours and up to the very last minute, thus ensuring that my loan went through in a timely manner.
He even recommended the Real Estate agent that I used, Deni Foss, which turned out to be an excellent choice.
I would definitely recommend that if anyone needed a new home or a loan modification, that they call Progressive Lending Solutions and work with David Youngs. I had an excellent experience working with him.
Jennifer L. – Fridley, MN – Satisfied Client
Just wanted to let you know that our closing went very smoothly last night. I also want to thank you for getting us a great rate on our new mortgage, and for all your hard work and effort during this process.

Thanks again!

I wanted to write this note to express my thanks to Progressive Lending and also David Youngs who helped me from start to finish.

Thanks for all your help with our refinancing. It all seemed to go pretty smoothly. You were great at keeping me informed and were able to answer all my questions. I feel that we had consistent contact and I was up to date with the whole process. I know the timing for my bank statements kept getting off and thank you for helping me figure all that out. We appreciate your time and will gladly refer anyone we know that could use your service.
Carmody S. – Fridley, MN – Satisfied Client
When going through paper work, we realized we had not thanked David Youngs for all the work he did for our mortgage on our property last year. It was handled so efficiently, even when unforeseen problems arose. Most important to us was the constant communication with us.
Jack and Mary Jo W. - Shoreview, MN - Satisfied Clients
"I was fortunate enough to meet David Youngs a few months prior to working with him. I quickly found out that he was both hard-working and very honest. As a result, I had no hesitation in choosing him as my loan consultant. Throughout the entire loan process he kept me informed, responded rapidly to all my communications, and was a great resource for information. Even during a very serious family emergency for David, he took the time to make sure I understood all my loan documents. David understands that purchasing a home can be stressful and he takes the time to educate his clients to reduce that stress. If you are looking for a hard-working, knowledgeable, and honest loan consultant that keeps his clients best interest in mind then I highly recommend using David Youngs!"
Thanks again for all your hard-work and dedication. I also sent this to your LinkedIn profile.
Wishing you and your family all the best!
Andrew C. - Fridley, MN - Satisfied Client
We wanted to write and tell you what a awesome experience you made the refinancing process for us! To be honest we never really thought it would happen. We have been trying to re-finance for 2 years. We have great credit, but on paper our debt is too high and yet we never miss or are late on any payments. We had given up on the idea, then you called.
We still didn't believe it was going to happen until we closed on March 8th. David you made it all very easy and it was a pleasure working with you. From the start you were very professional, you only promised you would do your best to find a company that would work for us. You delivered and we are very grateful for all your help! We will definitely recommend you to anyone in need of your services.
Linda and Keith M. – Wauwatosa, WI – Satisfied Clients
I would like to take a moment to share what a wonderful experience we had working with David Youngs form Progressive Lending Solutions.

To whom it may concern,
I’d like to personally thank you for allowing me the privilege of working with a loan officer from your company. He made refinancing our home virtually painless and worry free. David Youngs went out of his way to complete our application and all the necessary paperwork in a very timely and efficient manner.
Currently, I have more than a plate full of responsibilities within our family and the last thing I needed to add was a home refinance, but David walked me through everything that he needed to complete the process and because of that, we were able to close in no time. Essentially, lightening my load financially and mentally.
I have recommended others to your company, and if we ever need to finance or refinance a home, we’ll be certain to come to you first.
Pamela & Shawn D. – Sandstone, MN – Satisfied Clients
"David Youngs firm was given to me by an an associate, and at first, I was hesitant to contact a stranger regarding my finances. I quickly learned that he was not only brilliant, but he additionally had a sincere regard for my well being. He instantly treated me like a member of his family offering valuable advice for my financing needs. I am so glad I pushed through that hesitancy and secured him as my loan consultant. I will recommend him as I would any family member...even to a family member. Thanks David, you are top notch and will remain on my list of referrals to anyone...even family :)"
PS: I hope and pray your father is well. Take care my friend.
Don & Cynthia P. – Hugo, MN – Satisfied Clients
I just want to express how happy my husband and I were with David’s help during the refinancing of our home loan. Although we were hesitant at first, David’s encouragement and persistence eventually led us to take the steps to refinance. The process in general was very easy and most of the paperwork was simply submitted via email or fax. The interest rate on our loan was lowered by about 3 points and now our monthly mortgage payment is significantly lower. I am so happy that we went through the process, and now wish we would have done it sooner! I would certainly recommend David to anyone that is in the market to refinance their loan.
Tamara & John S. – Saint Paul, MN – Satisfied Clients

“David was very professional and helpful during my husband and my refinance. Due to being previous clients in the past he actually reached out to us when noticing that our mortgage rate was much higher than it could have been. Even though it was during the holiday season, David was very punctual and helpful any time of day I needed to speak with him and we were able to refinance our home with an almost 2 percent lower interest rate! I would recommend anyone to Progressive Lending Solutions due to the great experience I had both times working with them.
Hope all is well with you as well!! Thanks again for your help, David!”
Amber & Brad S. – Farmington, MN – Satisfied Clients

I will definitely refer friends, family and co-workers to work with David Youngs for their mortgage needs. I was very pleased to work with David on my home loan. 10 star service.”
Yee X. – Saint Paul, MN – Satisfied Client
We want to thank you for the diligence you showed through this long process to completion of refinancing our home. It's hard to believe we began attempting to refinance in 2010! With our loan to value ratio being slightly upside down at that point in time, you stuck with us, continually checking for any new opportunities for folks in our situation. Finally in 2012 your suggestion of finishing our lower level rather than paying down our loan brought our tax assessed value up to a place where we were finally able to refinance May of 2013!
Thanks David for sticking with us through this process. You are a super friendly, positive and easy to talk to guy about any concern or question. Your expertise helped every step of the way.
Kent and Karla S. – Rosemount, MN – Satisfied Clients
I am sorry for the tardiness of this email but I did want to let you know how extremely pleased we are with your expertise as our loan closer. You are extremely knowledgeable about the various loan products and answer questions precisely and in terms that we could understand. We were glad to be able to work with you on our process. Be assured that should anyone ask us about who to speak with in terms of a mortgage that your name and company will be at the top of our list.

To whom it may concern:
July 16th was an exciting day for Fay and I. We closed on our new loan. This has been a venture as we have been turned down for refinancing our home three times over the last two years. It has been very frustrating for us to know that we could be saving $600 a month on our loan payment, but being self employed and having a high start-up business cost that lowered our income and increased our debt.
After talking to Wendy H. at US Bank Small Business department she provided me with a contact at Progressive Lending Solutions at which time I discussed our situation with David Youngs. With our first discussion David reiterated what I have been told in the past that the numbers looked bad. I thought that this was the end of it and we were rejected again. I was totally wrong, as David acknowledged that he could not guaranty success he would do his best to find a solution.
From that point David and I had regular communications finding different documents and David used his network of people to find a lender that would review my situation and with the nudging from David, would look at my information and work outside the box. I sometimes felt that there would never be a solution and was it time to just stop the application. After realizing all of the hard work that David was doing and the amount of time he was committing to our loan application, I knew that I had to make sure I did my part with providing David any information he needed in a timely matter. I even had shoes sizes and favorite colors for my family recorded in case David needed them (lol).
When David called and said our loan was approved and we could close on July 16th. It was a surreal feeling for my family. David was such a positive person and was very creative and resourceful in overcoming the hurdles in our loan application. Anyone can do a typical loan application but it takes someone special on the difficult applications and David is that special person.
Thank you David as you are a great asset and the best representative for Progressive Lending Solutions and I look forward to work again with you.
My best to you.
Bill & Fay D. – Lino Lakes, MN – Satisfied Clients

We hope you are enjoying a nice weather. Sorry, we haven't thanked you for such a good job you have done with our mortgage. My husband "found" you after running away from a complete jerk.

Thank you for everything and good luck with your new clients. You deserve the best!

We wanted you to know how much we appreciated the work you did for us. From finding a lender and processing all of our paperwork. We would recommend you to anyone wanting a loan.

I hope that you and yours are well. Again, thanks for all the information you provided to us during the refi process. We appreciated your patience, knowledge, intelligence, and timely and responsive calls, emails, and adjustments at every stage. We're glad that you won the competition for our business, and it's been smooth sailing. Forward this to your boss: s/he would want to see this, I reckon.

To whom it may concern--
My husband and I were hesitant to refinance our seasonal home on the North Shore of Lake Superior because an attempt two years prior was a six month horror story of lost paper work, intimidating phone calls, and even though regarded as high quality applicants no refinance occurred. I tentatively began to look on the internet and as a result was contacted by David Youngs with Progressive. Several companies contacted us and two others were possibilities, but David had both loan and financial consultation background that was strong and important to us. Best of all he was located in Minnesota and had personal knowledge of the North Shore which has many unusual real estate characteristics. However, with great trepidation we began the process.
Our refinance package was finalized several days ago--with the rate cut in half and our loan reduced to 15 years. All of our delightful contacts with David were by phone and e-mail. We sent all our paperwork by e-mail. Nothing was lost, turn around was immediate, and David coached us in every step. It was so important to know what exactly the next step was and what would be needed from us. Every e-mail and call was answered more than promptly. We are actually still in shock that Progressive Lending Solutions could be so efficient, friendly, and get the job done in such a short period of time. And finally the Title Company representative came all the way to our home which is near the Canadian Border to complete signing of the paperwork. This has been a marvelous experience and has the added benefit of saving us hundreds of thousands in interest payments. Thanks to David for his wonderful capacity to build relationships and solve lending problems.

To whom it may concern:
I recently hired David Youngs as my loan officer and I was very pleased with the service that was received. He was very easy to get in contact with and made every effort to ensure that every step of the process was understood and that I was comfortable with the choices that were being made. I would highly recommend him as a dedicated loan professional to any of my friends and family.

“We highly recommend Progressive Lending Solutions. The team makes the dreaded mortgage process as painless as possible. David has the vision to see potential issues and figure out a solution before it becomes a problem. If you want a lender who is patient, helpful and makes the entire process less stressful, use PLS.”
Dave & Kim S. – Lakeville, MN – Satisfied Clients
“Thank you for your help originating my refinance loan. I appreciated the way you placed focus on the documentation at the beginning of the process, and that a lot of the work was handled online. I also appreciated the ability to meet with you after 6 PM, which accommodated my schedule. Good job!”
Holly L. – Satisfied Client – Minneapolis, MN
We closed on the house last Friday with no problems! We got moved in on Sunday, and have been LOVING our new home! A big part of that is because of you, and I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work and dedication to us. I am so very appreciative of you, and want you to know that you really made a difference in our lives. Having to move around, constantly, because of the military, and then for college, these past 14 years was fun... but I am overjoyed to be able to FINALLY plant some roots for our son and 'coming soon' baby boy :)
We will definitely come back to you when we are ready to upgrade and buy once again, and we will be referring you to our friends/family. We cannot thank you enough!”
Rebecca & Bill W. – Satisfied Clients - Hastings, MN
“If you are David’s supervisor, I want to say that he was outstanding in getting us a VA loan when 2 others could not. His knowledge, expedition and professionalism was above and beyond what is expected these days in customer service. We are so grateful and will gladly recommend him and your company! Thank you again for all your help”
Todd & Kristine J. – Satisfied Clients - Menomonee Falls, WI
“I had been told that I would be unable to re-finance my home loan by 3 different banks. The 3rd bank referred me to Progressive Lending. After contacting David Youngs, I was told there was a way and he could help me make it happen. After a lot of hand-holding and dogged persistence on David’s part to get all the documentation needed to ensure a smooth closing, the loan closed without issue. It even worked out that I will have no house payment in December, Merry Christmas!”
Michael S. – Satisfied Client – Circle Pines, MN
“My experience with David Youngs and Progressive Lending Solutions was in obtaining a mortgage for a rental property. It was very positive, in fact so much so that I did a 2nd loan with David. The whole process went very smoothly, the rates obtained were excellent and their fees were lower than with other mortgage brokers. I would highly recommend David and Progressive Lending Solutions."
Barry K. – Satisfied Client – Stillwater, MN
“I started my refinance with a different, out-of-state consultant, who dismissed a lot of my questions without answering and did not directly answer those questions he chose to respond to. I was about to give up on refinancing altogether when I was contacted by David. Mr. Youngs answered all of my questions directly and thoroughly, and I was able to get my home refinanced. I would recommend David to anyone looking to buy or refinance.”
Siobhan J. – Saint Paul, MN – Satisfied Client
“ Progressive Lending Solutions,
We would like to say thank you for our recent experience of re-financing our home. David Youngs was beyond helpful, making sure our experience was a great one! He laid out all of our options making sure we were familiar with every possible outcome. He also made everything very easy to understand and made sure we got what we wanted. We also appreciate the extra work he had to put in to get this done. Overall we would highly recommend Progressive Lending Solutions and David Youngs to anyone. Thanks for a hassle free experience!”
Jared & Chelsie J. – Ramsey, MN – Satisfied Clients
To whom it may concern:
“My recent refinance with David Youngs was basically an effortless process on my end. I know he worked hard in the background to get it done as quickly as possible. David was very responsive to my questions -- quick to respond and always answered thoroughly and made sure I understood. At the beginning of the process he presented me with all options and took care to recommend what would be best for me. I'm really pleased with how the refinance went and would definitely recommend David to others.”
Deborah M. – Minneapolis, MN – Satisfied Client
“My experience with Progressive Lending was great I have never had any other lender work as hard as they did for me. Most others give up at the first snag and if you are out money it doesn't matter to them. But that is not the case here they took their time and figured out how to make it work and now I'm saving every month.”
Ryan U. – Roberts, WI – Satisfied Client
"David and I have worked together for numerous years with his clients as our similar interest. David has always taken excellent care of his clientele and has always been exceptional to work with. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to get into a real estate loan! "
Nikki Steitle - Senior Consumer Analyst - White Jacobs & Associates - Mckinney, TX
“To whom it may concern:
Thank you for the opportunity of working with David. He was a real life saver in making the mountains of paperwork and legal concerns in purchasing a home a positive experience.
One of the qualities of David that I really appreciated greatly was that he never left anything to chance. He never had a "let's hope for the best" type attitude. Everything was done efficiently, and he always had a backup plan. I was never worried about the deal falling apart. Along with constant contact with David, and documents being handled and filed in a timely manner, there was not the stress normally involved in a home purchase.
I am looking forward to recommending David and Progressive Lending Solutions to friends and family. Even my real estate agent was very impressed with the efficiency and availability, and honesty of David, to the point of wanting to work with him in the future.
Thank you again!”
Loretta M. – Satisfied Client – Maple Grove, MN
"The mortgage refinance process with Progressive Lending Solutions was very quick and easy. I worked with David Youngs who was very attentive and would respond back to me with updates as soon as he had them. I also appreciated the detailed explanation of the process both before and during the refinance. I always knew where we were in the process and what was going to happen next. I would highly recommend Progressive Lending Solutions for all your lending needs!"
Sara S. – Satisfied Client – Mahtomedi, MN
“David at Progressive Lending Solutions was a rock during the home buying process. We were first introduced through our Realtor, Dennis Madden of Edina Realty, and after researching a couple of other options we were blown away with David’s ingenuity and courteous nature. As a first-time homebuyer, you can image how many questions came up during the process. David was always available to assist and provided the information in a “user friendly” version so we were able to fully understand.
During the process, our down payment was delayed due to the banks outdated system. His patience through this time really helped to calm a frustrating process.
Overall, the work David completed took our home buying process from potentially being a stressful, life wrenching experience to a smooth, comfortable transaction.”
Adam & Bethany B. – Satisfied clients – West Saint Paul, MN
“David (and my Progressive Lending Solutions Team),
I just wanted to pass along my sincere gratitude to everyone involved in this process. I know that sometimes the people behind the scenes often are unnoticed and under-appreciated. This is not the case here. We were very pleased with the constant communication and updating throughout the entire process. Loans have gotten much more complex since the last two times I have applied for them. Having the extra headaches of the VA home loan process, to which I was not familiar with at all, greatly added to the complexity. Not to worry though, because we had a great team with you as the narrator, through the entire process. Even down to the wire with some last minute items that could have pushed the closing date, we managed to pull it all off and close on the original date (1 July). This will likely be our last home loan ever, but rest assured, that we will refer everyone your way.
Thank you again David!
It was a pleasure!”
Dave T. – Satisfied Client - Dassel, MN
“We recently refinanced our home mortgage with Progressive Lending Solutions. Our mortgage consultant, David Youngs is a consummate professional, providing us with timely communication and invaluable information. He definitely is one of the most knowledgeable mortgage consultants I’ve ever come across and I have been a Realtor for 17 years. It was a pleasure working with a true Professional. In fact I’ve added David to the list of professionals which I provide to my clients knowing that they will receive the same great service as we did. Thank you David.”
Nader & Cheryl M. – Satisfied Client & Real Estate Agent @ Keller Williams Integrity – Plymouth, MN
Thank you very much for helping me with my mortgage loan. You've done a great job at handing my loan. You are very professional, quick response to my questions, talk with me in a language I can understand you and a very kind person. I will recommend you to my friends and families in the future. Thank you again for your hard work. May God bless you and your family.”
Mai Mee V. – Satisfied Client – Saint Paul, MN
"This is actually the best place to get your mortgage. It's wholesale pricing so no one can beat it, and they have access to every product I know of (and I'm in real estate.) They rank extremely high on the BBB. I've personally worked with David Youngs, and I've never seen a more dedicated Loan Consultant. Always finds the best answer for the client. Always! My experience with Progressive has been that they are fantastic communicators and they really are willing to spend the time to provide superior service. Not only will I refer others to them, this is where I will be going for my next mortgage and refinances!"

“This is the second time that I have worked with David Youngs at Progressive. The process went even smoother than the first time. The results were great. I recommend them for the knowledge, easy access, and professionalism that they deliver.”
William D. – Satisfied Client – Lino Lakes, MN’
“David was professional. I would recommend and of my friends to him. We closed w/o any issues or surprises.”
“My husband and I have refinanced quite a few times in our lives and never has the process went as smooth and as easy as it did this time. We were kept appraised on the rate changes on an almost daily basis so we knew the best time to begin the process. We got the rate we wanted, didn't end up having to get an appraisal and had all the work done within a short time with minimal effort. David went out of his way to explain the new paperwork required for refinancing as of October 2015. When that paperwork delayed closing slightly (through no fault of David’s), we were adequately compensated. I would definitely recommended David Youngs/Progressive Lending Solutions to anyone thinking of refinancing!”
Kristin & David T. – Oakdale, MN – Satisfied Clients
“As a home owner, I expect many questions to be answered from the professional field. Many home buyers like me may have limited knowledge on steps to purchasing a home or property. I greatly appreciate the level of professional experience that I have received from David Youngs and his group. I am very content as far as questions were answered accordingly without any doubt, process being explained and revised so ones who are not familiar with professional terminologies could understand. As a client I feel that I am cared for very well because my phone calls and emails were answered right away, I even missed messages from David because his return was faster than I expected. I would greatly refer anyone to him and his group anytime. Relax for I know who is working hard every day to get things done for me. I have had people in the past nothing like this group and they did poor jobs. Give your trust to this group.”
Wa Seng L. – Little Canada, MN – Satisfied Client
“I would like to take time to give a raving review to David Youngs, Loan Specialist with Progressive Lending Solutions, Inc. David handled my account regarding our home purchase from beginning to end. David is always professional and very punctual in returning our phone calls and e-mails, and was quick to respond to any questions.
He always made sure that I knew what was going on and what was expected of me at each step. He would call or email me right away and inform me of any new development even into the evening. David was always available if I had a question, and I know that he worked many hours and up to the very last minute, thus ensuring that my loan went through in a timely manner.
I would highly recommend David as a loan consultant. He did his job well, and in the end, we were very satisfied with the results of our loan.
Kirsten A. – Osceola, WI – Satisfied Client

Here is our review of the service we received from you. Thank you for all you did to help us. Dave and Janet
We had been thinking about refinancing our home for quite a while and wasn't positive that it was the right step. After speaking with David Youngs, he reviewed all our current home mortgage information and let us know all the options we had available. We decided to go ahead and worked with David for re-financing our mortgage. He went above and beyond in communicating with us through all aspects of the mortgage process. He kept us informed every step of the way. In the middle of the process we changed the down payment from what was originally written up. He reviewed the options available to us and was very helpful in finalizing the documents needed to complete our loan in a timely matter. We would definitely recommend him.
David & Janet H. – Forest Lake, MN – Satisfied Clients
“We worked with a Loan Consultant from this company on a referral, and I have to say, I would recommend anyone to this company and this consultant. We looked for a home for over a year--which I'm sure could be frustrating for the consultant. Regardless of how many questions or how long the process took, we never felt as though we were a burden. That is a fantastic feeling. Our consultant always had answers and responses to us within a half hour, but most of the time, he got back to us within minutes. We were so thankful for our experience with this company--it made the process of borrowing money a lot less painful!”
Jared D. & Holly F. – Hudson, WI – Satisfied Clients
"My wife and I went from exploring the option to buy a hobby farm to moving less than a mile from our current location. David worked with me from the beginning with patience and diligence in explaining the nuances of how purchasing different types of properties can be structured in different ways. As first time buyers we obviously needed some guidance and David quickly answered all of our questions and helped us into our loan. I thank David for this and I hope to have the opportunity to work with him in future endeavors."
-Chad W. – Minneapolis, MN – Satisfied Client
“Our mortgage consultant David Youngs was great to work with during our recent mortgage refinance. He was quick to respond with options and pricing for our loan and also provided great insight into questions I had during the process. He helped me learn a lot about the mortgage industry that I did not know before. Our refinance process went exceedingly well and I would recommend David and Progressive Lending Solutions, Inc. to others in need of a home loan or refinancing.
Thanks again for all your help.”
Logan & Emily W. – Minneapolis, MN – Satisfied Clients
“Our mortgage consultant David Youngs did a great job. He reviewed our current mortgage and was able to find us a lower interest rate which led to a much lower monthly mortgage payment. David was very helpful and right on top of any questions that we had, and kept us posted the whole time during the approval process. David made getting approved for a loan “EASY”. I would definitely recommend using David Youngs and the Progressive Lending team for all your mortgage needs.”
Brian & Michelle B. – Maple Grove, MN – Satisfied Clients
“Extremely positive experience working with David at Progressive. Felt very informed at each step of the process and team was very responsive to any and all requests.”
Michael & Malinda M. – Waconia, MN – Satisfied clients
“When I was looking to buy our first home, I didn’t know the first thing about mortgages. David Youngs was very good at explaining it to me. He told me everything I needed to know so that I knew what to expect and so that I could make informed decisions along the way. David is a mortgage broker, which means he can work with various lenders to find me the best loan terms. I like this also because it’s like he works for me, not for a particular lender just trying to sell me a product.
My experience with David and Progressive Lending Solutions was so great, that when I was considering refinancing, I didn’t hesitate to call him. He took a look at the housing market in my area and the going rates for mortgages to see if it made sense. His estimate of the increase in my house’s value actually turned out to be a little conservative, which I appreciate; I wouldn't want to waste money on an appraisal only to be disappointed! Based on his recommendations, we were able to lock in a good rate. It’s a good thing we did, because rates only kept going up after we locked in, just as he said they would. There were a few obstacles along the way, however, but David worked diligently through them, keeping me well-informed throughout the process.
On a side note, the reason I was curious about refinancing in the first place was because I had received an offer to refinance from my current lender. During the refinancing process, I also received other offers to refinance from other lenders. It turned out that the rate I got through David Youngs and Progressive Lending was even better than all these offers. So I would definitely recommend that you work with a broker such as David rather than simply accept an offer you happen to get from a particular lender.
I would wholeheartedly recommend David Youngs to anyone looking to buy or refinance a home. In fact, he should be the first person you call!”
David M – Roseville, MN – Satisfied Client
“Progressive Lending is a top notch mortgage company. David was our consultant. He was able to get us a great rate and fast service. He was so helpful in saving us so much money and worked hard to get it done in such a short time. We find him truly dedicated to his work. We were always kept informed on the progress of our loan. We would highly recommend Progressive Lending and their team for any of your mortgage needs.”
Hiedi and Bob W. – Coon Rapids, MN - Satisfied Clients
“Home refinancing is a daunting ordeal. Every small detail that came up had an answer or got one at the earliest time to make my experience very seamless. I will definitely recommend David Youngs, ‘my mortgage consultant’ to all my friends and family.”
Rosie L. – Rochester, MN – Satisfied Client
Perfect first-time home purchase experience
I recently purchased my first home, and David was recommended to me by my realtor. Purchasing a first home is a scary thing, but David made the process as comfortable as could be. He was extremely communicative and patient with me and my lack of knowledge. He made it a point to make absolutely sure that I not only understood, but also felt good about every point throughout the process. Furthermore, David worked closely with me and my financial situation, and used his broker-powers to find me a loan product that was far better and cheaper than I thought I would get, all for zero fees. Without question, I will be contacting David for my next home purchase.

“I was a first time home buyer and I was referred to David to start the process of getting pre-approved for a home loan. David was very helpful from beginning to end. He seemed to be available 24/7 because anytime I or my real estate agent posed a question to him, he would get back to us promptly. He guided me through every step of the process, from get pre-approved to purchasing a home, always answering all my questions in a way that I would understand. I am extremely satisfied with David and Progressive Lending Solutions and will recommend them to my friends and family.”

“I had a great experience with Progressive Lending not to mention I felt that I had saved a ton of money by not paying an origination fee which most lenders would not disclose. I would highly recommend their services as it was quick, knowledgeable, and had gone above and beyond to provide me with resources and information that would be helpful to me. I like that my best interest was at heart and the advice and feedback given was exactly what I was expecting.”

“I recently worked with Progressive Lending Solutions when I was buying my first home and I have nothing but good things to say about them. As a newbie in the home buying process EVERYTHING had to be explained to me in laymen terms and sometimes more than once. David ****** was awesome and a God send, as he patiently explained everything step by step and guided me through the entire process. There were some obstacles that we had to overcome and he came through with such perfect solutions that I did not have to worry about anything. Every phone call, e-mail or text was either answered right away or returned within 24 hours. I would definitely work with them again and would recommend them to anyone looking for a loan officer.”
Kosain & Anushka R. – White Bear Lake, MN - Satisfied Clients
We've had great experiences with brokers in getting great rates for our home mortgages and Progressive Lending Solutions is one of the best. Not only will they get you the prices you need, they have vastly superior customer service. Our Mortgage Consultant was extremely attentive, prompt, and congenial throughout the entire process - despite multiple failed offers. He was patient and took extra time to walk us through the complexities of the process. Lastly and most importantly, he was transparent and honest which is not something you see often in this space. I couldn't recommend Progressive Lending Solutions more highly.
John & Trisha D – Spring Valley, WI
“It would have been easier to submit documents if I had a newer computer system. The Progressive Lending Consultant was always polite and let us know how the loan was going with the underwriter, what additional info was needed and patient with us when it took longer to get the info due to our delays. Was able to get an even better interest rate than what it was when we started the loan process. He was very patient when we started the loan process three times due to problems with the first 2 homes we still got the same service with the third and final home as we did with the first two false starts.”

I'm willing to offer free financial advice and consultations for any individual needing assistance. I always strive to ensure that my clients have the necessary information they need to make an informed decision about purchasing a mortgage product. I have found that oftentimes, mortgage originators in the industry will not always ask the right questions or take the time to fully understand your situation. This could result in a loan situation that is not ideal for you personally. It is important to view ones' mortgage not just as a debt, but a powerful tool that can be leveraged in various ways to achieve wealth. Take the time to research and weigh your options first!
