Welcome to my Website!
I am in the 19th year of my career as a loan officer, 15 years dedicated to internet lending nationwide. I graduated from Northwest Missouri State University in 2000 with a B.S. in Business Management. I have funded over $237 Million dollars in volume throughout my career; specializing in VA, Conventional and FHA loans.
My lending philosophy is simple. Treat every single client with honesty and respect every single time. Actions always speak louder than words. There is no greater satisfaction or compliment in this business thanto have a past client refer their friends, family, and co-workers because you took great care of them; not only with top notch service, but also by ensuring they received the very best rate and fees possible.
I was raised in a small town in West Central Missouri. I enjoy country living while still being close enough to the city to enjoy it's perks. My other favorite things to do outside of work are; spending time with my wife and family, going to church, fishing, hunting, being outdoors, and watching sports.
Here's what clients are saying!

I have now completed two home loans with Mike Saunders. Both transactions were smooth from start to finish. I highly recommend him. He offers excellent rates and customer service! He was always available to answer my calls. I look forward to work with him in future as well

Mike was the best. We moved half way across the country and it could not have been simpler because if Mike. He made everything clear, communicated regularly and was there to answer any questions.

Mike was great to work with from the beginning through to the end. He took as much time as we needed and answered any and all questions. We would highly recommend Mike and First Federal to anyone looking for a home loan purchase. Thanks Mike and Jeni, Bill and Jen.

Jennifer Wright from Smithville, MO
My husband and I were fortunate to have Mike Saunders as our loan officer for the second home we have purchased in the past ten years. With this latest home-buying experience, Mike was there every step of the way to research the best rates, keep up informed, and to answer questions. He locked us in at an incredible interest rate but also gave us several options when going through the process. Up until the hour before our closing, he was on the phone with us to ease any apprehension that may arise. I have the upmost respect for him and appreciate all of his guidance with helping us buy our dream home.
Great experience again. From 02/19/2018
azjayhawk from Phoenix, AZ
This was the second home we have financed through First Federal using Mike Saunders. The first was a new home purchase and the second was a refinancing on a second home. Both experiences were the same: excellent service from start to finish.
Timely and honest service from a truly caring professional from 02/16/2018
cmwright220 from Smithville, MO
Mike was not only timely and trusting through the whole process but doubled as a counselor at times to set our minds at ease over every obstacle. Our home being purchased brought many challenges due to it's uniqueness and Mike was there at every turn to reassure the process was moving along. As long as we got our docs to him, he acted promptly to assure we were ready to close on time. This is the second loan we've done with Mike and the rates he's been able to provide us are incomparable. Highly recommended!
Great Lender! from 02/16/2018

Susan Napier from Philadelphia, DE
As soon as you speak to Mike, you will have met the most sincere, genuine man, with a very kind heart. He's very responsive and does not leave you hanging. He walked me through this refi process with clear direction, and patience. He gives you what he would want for himself and that is a great mortgage product without deceitful intent.
Thanks Mike for all your help!!
Great Loan Experience from 10/26/2017

We contacted Mike for our refi because we had a great experience in dealing with him on a previous loan. He is professional, straightforward and listens. We were informed throughout the process and everything went smoothly.
