LeaderOne Financial

From Humble Beginnings

Founded in 1992 in Kansas City, we are rooted in the Midwestern values of respect, keeping your word, and treating people fairly. We started with a staff of one local mortgage lender, whose goal was to grow into a mortgage company known for its ethics and stellar customer service. As LeaderOne expanded into more than 90 branches and over 600 employees (300+ licensed originators), we have maintained those principles, allowing us to provide our clients and referral partners with exceptional mortgage experiences. LeaderOne’s highly qualified mortgage professionals are currently originating over $4 billion in mortgages annually and servicing over $1 billion in conventional and government loans.
