Mark was fantastic. He and his team were able to turn around a VA loan in about 3 weeks. I couldn't believe it. Most importantly, he found me the best deal to close quickly.

Mark Deitsch and his team were fantastic to work with and I can’t recommend them enough! As a realtor, I have connected with many mortgage brokers, and always found Lifetree to stand out. They have not let me down on any deals thus far — no matter how difficult the deal may be, they are always able to get us to the closing table.

I recently worked with Mark on a personal transaction and am so thankful that I had him by my side. Mark is always readily available to answer questions and explain anything you don’t understand — he will continue explaining in new, creative ways until you truly understand! How many people do you know who CAN and are WILLING to do that?! Mark genuinely cares about his clients and it shows. I will definitely be using him again for my next home purchase!

Mark Deitsch and the entire team at LifeTree Lending were AND have been amazing even after the closing process (we all know how it goes after closing.. most of the time ghosted by those big banks... but not LifeTree)! Everything was easy, prompt and any problems that popped up, they fixed and I made out better than I originally had thought with $$ back at closing to put into my savings account! The customer service was top notch! Mark and Emily both would stay on the phone with me for hours if need be for me to fully understand something in the process and did this several times along the way which built trust and life long relationships! They made me feel valued, educated me and treated me as if I was apart of their own family! I couldn't recommend LifeTree more! Thank you guys for all you do! It's very much appreciated!

I was referred to Mark Krueger by my Realtor as someone that he trusted and has personally worked with. I am so glad that I called! Mark was extremely helpful and answered all my questions in quick fashion. He also kept me up to date on what the market was doing with actual data. I would absolutely recommend Mark at LifeTree Lending for any financing needs. He's top notch!

My experience with Mark Deitsch and his team were OUTSTANDING!! Mark went above and beyond to make getting a mortgage as comfortable as possible. Sometimes on the phone with me for well over an hour explaining to me details about the ins and outs, how to go about buying a house, what to do and what to avoid, etc. Extremely personable, I immediately felt I had known him for years with the relationship we had established. More then just a lender but a mentor through what is often a difficult process. I continue to recommend him to anyone I come across who needs the services he provides knowing they will all be good hands. Thank you for everything Mark.

I have used Mark Deitsch and his team since 2012. I have had many great experiences through the purchases of primary and investment homes. Not only does he and his team close the deal on time but they have also helped me structure the deal that is most beneficial to me. they take time and listen to what I need each time. I highly recommend LifeTree lending and Mark Deitsch for your home mortgage needs.

As first-time home buyers, we had a lot questions about how to navigate the market and what options we had. With all of those questions came a lot of stress and anxiety about just what we needed to do and how we needed to approach finding the best lender to work with. After the first conversation with Mark Krueger, our anxiety was gone!

He walked us through things at the pace we needed and made sure we knew all of our options. He provided help and guidance every step of the way. He was available anytime we had a question and would call me to talk out any concerns and thoughts we had.

The pre-approval process was so quick and efficient and set us up for much easier results once we zeroed in on the house we wanted. Mark and his team were absolutely amazing! They made sure we got everything together we needed, prepared us for anything that could come our way, and got all our paperwork and applications completed and sent out with amazing efficiency and quickness.

When I say they took the stress out of the home buying process, I mean that in every way possible. We didn’t even get time to stress about any approval process or answer about our loan because Mark got it done so fast. His team made sure everything was good to go every step of the way, so that there were no hiccups, no waiting for answers, no fear of something not going through. This made for no stress for us at all about getting our loan for the home of our dreams!

If you want a great experience, efficiency throughout, quick answers, a personal touch, and no stress, you better call Mark and his team!

I cannot say enough great things about Mark Deitsch and his team at LifeTree Lending. They helped us with the purchase of our first investment property and was truly awesome experience. The entire process was spelled out and expectations were exceeded in every way. We will definitely be using them again and would recommend them to anyone looking to get lending for their primary residence or investment property needs!

Mark and his team (Brandon and Emily) were exceptional during my my process. I started submitting docs on the 7th, I didn’t get everything over to them until about the 26th of July and I’m closing the July 29th. He locked me in at an excellent rate and was always very easy to communicate with and get ahold of. After seeing his reviews on Zillow and finding out he’s been in the business for over 25 years, I understand why he’s good at what he does and I’ll refer him and his team to my friends and family. His team also out priced everyone with the initial insurance quote.

I meet Mark Allen Krueger through my Realtor. He's a very knowledgeable man, when it comes to finance and loans. I have a very special case, and thought i would end up renting for awhile before i can buy a home. Mark carefully listen to my story. Came up with a solution, completed my application with him via phone call. Once, i submitted all my required documentations, my loan took 16days to be approved and i purchased my home in 16days. It could been done 10days, if underwriter wasn't behind. But, under this market and circumstances. I do understand every company is under staff and any staffs who willing to show up to work, is doing their best. The demand is high and supply is low. So, be compassionate and patient when working with your lender and realtor. Brandon is also Mark right wing man. They both works together like professionals. Both got all my paperwork in and worked on my case after hours. Their are days i am on the phone with Mark until 11pm. Never once he was upset or show signs of not wanting to help me complete my process. He is patient, kind and surround himself with the best team members and players. I am definitely be working with Mark in the future to help assist my family and any Asian immigrants family who's need assistant in this lending process. It is very intimidating. But, if you have the right people on your side, it is as easy as baking a stor bought pie. Thank you so much Mark. I cannot thanks you enough. You had help our family so much and the amount of stress i would endure without your professionalism and understanding is beyond words!!! Please sign up with Mark, he will definitely guide you every step of the way. Once again thank you so much Mark!!!!

I made the mistake of not using LifeTree for one of my refinances. Ended up later doing a refi through LifeTree and got my rate back to normal (0.6% lower).

I’ve now used LifeTree Lending for 2 new home purchases (both VA) and a refinance (from FHA to VA). Mark and team are top of the line. I am not a finance expert, but I do know what I pay per month. The team at LifeTree made sure I knew all the angles to consider before I made any decisions. They have always been incredibly responsive to any questions I have had.

Using LifeTree is a choice I have made many times before and definitely would make again. The big financing companies don’t really care about little old me. Mark knows me well enough to text me happy birthday. Combine that with crushing the big guys rates, it’s an easy choice to make.

Mark Deitsch's knowledge of the financial markets and understanding of the options available to home-buyers is unparalleled in this fast-paced real estate environment. He provided expert counsel that allowed us to find the best mortgage product for our family. We walked away with financial peace of mind knowing we were protected by our lender and secured for our future. Thanks to Mark and everyone at the LifeTree team!

I am very pleased that we chose Mark Krueger at LifeTree as he helped us with our loan on a new construction. During the four months that we worked together, including builder delays, Mark was always fast to respond. He kept us updated and informed often before we realized we needed to do something and provided personal touches by sharing his own experience. We are not even in the same city, but his personality and fast communication bridged the miles between Mount Pleasant and Spartanburg. I would use LifeTree Lending again and recommend Mark.

My wife and I met with Mark Deitsch and spoke with him for over one hour. We were both amazed at his vast knowledge of how to make our difficult home loan possible. Mark gave us amazing information to help repair our credit so that he can get our loan written at an affordable interest rate. Mark was pleasant, honest and hard-working. Not qualities found much anymore. Strongly recommend.

Mark Deitsch and his team helped us when we moved down here in 2018. They were friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and really easy to work with. They are also just nice people - my 10 month old son and daughter had to be with us during closing and Mark helped hold and entertain my 10 month old so we could focus on signing. Such a great guy! I highly recommend and will for sure use their services in the future!
