Hello, my name is Joey Birkle and I am a loan originator with First Option Mortgage, located Indianapolis. I have had the privilege to enjoy an extensive career in the mortgage industry and I have worked with countless clients to assist them with their financing. I started as a loan officer back in early 2002 and I have held many positions within the mortgage industry including loan originator, branch manager, district manager, divisional manager and regional manager. I believe that I can not only offer my clients experience and knowledge of various loan programs and the guidelines associated with each, but I can also provide the great overall service that they deserve. First Option Mortgage offers a tremendous platform for me to extend the best service the industry has to offer to each and every client we encounter. Here at First Option, we are a broker/correspondent lender, which means that we work with a variety of different banks and mortgage companies, both local and national. This not only gives us the advantage of being able to go out into the marketplace to find our clients the best deals and lowest rates available, but also allows us the versatility to work with a much more diverse, broader range of different programs to help find the perfect fit for our client’s individual and unique situation. I personally approach this business much differently than the average loan officer. My first priority is my relationship with my customer rather than focusing on the loan transaction itself. In this approach, I help my clients with their overall personal finances rather than just the loan transaction itself. That being said, if I have a client that needs help building credit or if we have to work on savings or income so we can qualify for financing in the future, I am certainly here for them to give them the professional advice and direction they might need. I understand that applying for financing is a very personal experience so I am always working hard to make sure that I can provide the very best service possible to each and every one of my clients. If you have read this far, I appreciate you taking the time to read my profile. I can’t stress enough how critical it is that you choose the right loan officer to assist you during the home buying process. I personally feel the loan officer or the loan originator that you decide to work with will be the difference between a great experience and a not so great experience. That being said, whether you ultimately decide to use me or a different lender, I highly recommend that you do your due diligence when you select a loan officer and a lender. If you would like me and First Option to assist you with your financing, we would love to have you. Please contact me anytime. I am usually in the office from 9am to 9pm, Monday through Friday and I am available by cell on the weekends. I look forward to meeting you and I am excited to assist you with the financing to purchase your new home!!!

Joey was adamant on making sure I got to close on the house I was looking into even when I hit some detours along the way. There was constant and daily communication up until the day I closed. I do not think anywhere else could have closed and got me ahead like he did.

Joey was wonderful during our entire experience! He took a lot of the pressure and stress off during the whole process of purchasing our new home. He was literally available at all hours of the day via phone, email, and text. He answered every question we had right away and was very patient. He has an entire team that he works with that are experts in their portion, which makes everything flawless and go very quickly. I couldn't have asked for an easier experience!

Joey knows what he is doing and gets you where you want to be or tells you it isn't going to happen.

This was our second experience with Joey and his team; once again it was a very positive experience. Joey and his team were readily available to answer any and all questions we had around the clock. They were upfront with what to expect throughout the process and let us know ahead of time what we should be looking out for next.

We have now used Joey and his team for a mortgage and refinance within a 12-month period and through both experiences, he and his team have been fantastic. The level of communication throughout the process is as good as it can possibly be and Joey truly makes the complex process easy to understand. I'd recommend Joey to anyone looking!
