A Message from the Founder of Our Denver Mortgage Company – Ted Wedewer

As the leader of the team here at 5280lend.com, I have been a Colorado and Denver Mortgage Lender since 1993.  I have seen some pretty interesting cycles in the Denver area real estate market as well as the evolutionary roller coaster of the mortgage financing market.  It has been a huge learning opportunity for me and the others on my team!

We have seen the late stages of the S&L crisis back in 1993 when real estate was “dirt cheap.”  You could buy all the land you wanted down in Castle Rock for almost nothing.  My first house in University Hills cost me $130,000 in 1996 and my dad thought I was crazy for paying that much!

Get Help From a Denver Mortgage Lender During Market Frothiness in 2022

We all know about the mortgage melt-down, but the times BEFORE that was the stranger stuff:  sub-prime lending and stated income loans were a real head-scratcher!  We are seeing some equally strange “frothiness” in the real estate market right now (2022) that reminds me a little bit of that time, but the financing products are definitely much more conservative and realistic for home buyers.

Our experience with all of these different types of markets and financing methods helps us to give you some very thorough analysis and advice about your options in real estate and how to best finance it.

We Treat You as a Friend and Help You Find the Best Denver Mortgage Possible

My first priority in my life is always my family.  I have 2 kids of my own from my first marriage and my wife, Tara, has 2 kids of her own that keep us on our toes!  I view my clients as a part of my extended family also.  Some of my closest friends are people that I have met through work and have done work for.  I commit to do the best work I can for all of my clients so that they get the best possible financing at the lowest possible cost.

My team here at Universal Lending is another tremendous asset that I am very thankful for every day that I do this work.  The company is big enough to get any kind of real estate financing done, but also small enough that everyone knows each other and cares about each other which makes working here a real pleasure for me.  I think my clients are the beneficiary of this dynamic.

Working with Ted on my refinance was wonderful. He was so patient and helpful throughout the entire process and kept me informed every step of the way. Ted never hesitated to answer my questions and make sure that I knew everything that was going on and why things were happening. I couldn’t have done this without him.

Ted Wedewer is the best! I have been working with him for years and have established several mortgages or re-finances with him and he makes the process effortless. He is quick to answer questions and has helped to put my mind at ease thru the process. I have recommended him before to friends and family and will continue to do so! He is fair, honest, transparent and so easy to work with!

Ted has helped us with three home loans. Each time he kept everything on schedule. This was most impressive in summer 2020 when some closings were being pushed out 90 days. He was able to anticipate all the needs of underwriting to keep the surprises to a minimum. I highly recommend Ted for any type of conventional home loan you may need.

We had an outstanding time working with Ted! His knowledge, expertise, and ability to navigate us through challenging world situations was incredible. He answered our questions and explained things in ways that were easy to understand, which gave us confidence. His guidance throughout the process made our experience simple and stress free, which is no easy feat in these times of uncertainty. Ted clearly knows the ins and outs of the mortgage industry and was able to work with our specific needs to put together the loan that was right for us. We could not be more satisfied and would highly recommend Ted to anyone in the market. Thank You!
