Angela Swank (Frost)First Rate Mortgage was established in 1998 by Angela Swank (Frost).  We are locally owned and operated and licensed in the State of Iowa. Our customers are like family and we treat them that way.


Our goals are to provide a high level of one on one service with our customer's and offer them the best rates available.  How do we do this?  We are approved to do business with multiple lenders who we shop on a day to day basis to find the best rate and programs available.


"Have you ever felt like you deserved better than what you were receiving? I will personally go to work for you to get the best rate possible." -Angela Swank (Frost)


At First Rate Mortgage, our first priority is making sure your mortgage loan experience is a positive one.  Our mortgage specialists are trained to listen instead of the other way around.  We pride ourselves on working hard to make sure you get the best loan product available and that it meets your needs.  This requires knowledge and experience in the mortgage field.  Both of which our mortgage specialists at First Rate Mortgage have.


We work hard to make your loan process a smooth one with no bumps along the way.  As a consumer you have the right to ask for the best and be treated with respect.

Customer Comments
We have used Angela, First Rate Mortgage, for our new mortgage and two refinances and we have had very good experiences with all three transactions. Angela is very knowledgeable and has access to the resources to always find the best rate available at the time. It was always easy to stay in touch, whether in person, email or on the phone, with her during the document completion process and she was always quick to respond to any question, no matter how unimportant or insignificant it may seem to be.
