McArthur Homes

Finance Your New Home in Utah

McArthur Homes has teamed up with several excellent Utah lenders to simplify home loans for our buyers. With the current mortgage and lending environment, using a lender familiar with new home construction, and in particular our communities and homes, will be important to make the home buying experience a pleasant one.

We strongly encourage our homebuyers to work with one of our preferred lenders for one simple reason. It will make the investment a better experience for you.

During the last few years, we found that the vast majority of last minute delays to the financing and closing of the home purchase is caused by lenders selected by the homebuyers.

In contrast, nearly all of the transactions financed through our preferred lenders go smoothly and complete on time. In part, this is because of the careful screening selection on our part to begin with, continued training provided and level of expertise of our lenders. As part of the core team, our lenders attend our bi-weekly coordination meetings at our main office, all company wide meetings held at least quarterly, and other McArthur Homes events that facilitate constant communication between Sales, Construction, Management and Lender.

For these and other reasons, we are certain that the best way for you to insure a positive and hassle free closing upon completion of the construction of your new home, is to select one of our preferred lenders!

Purchasing a home or refinancing your existing home can be very exciting (and a bit stressful!) My 20 years of experience in mortgage lending helps me to guide you to the result you are looking for in a smooth and professional manner. I work with a full range of borrowers from first-time homebuyers to investors to empty nesters! I strive to make sure my borrowers fully understand the transaction and are comfortable with their new home purchase. As a lender, I’m always available by email, text, or phone call to answer all your questions and help to make the whole process as easy as possible!  First Colony is Utah’s leading mortgage company who takes pride in providing the lowest rate & fees guaranteed!

I received my BA from the University of Denver, where I played Division 1 basketball. A fun fact about me is that I was Utah’s First Ms. Basketball my senior year of high school!  My husband, Matt, and I have four children, who are also active in sports. I enjoy being active, running, being a soccer mom, and traveling.

Hello, my name is Kellie Shepherd. I was born and raised in Spanish Fork but have lived in Salem with my husband and our four fantastic kids for over 20 years. I love Utah and all the opportunities that we have in this beautiful state! My family and I love traveling, adventuring, being in the mountains, seeing new sights, and being active. We are all soccer fans and enjoy watching our kids play soccer and going to Real Salt Lake games. In our spare time, we like to spend quality time as a family and get out and exercise and have fun together.

I have worked in the Mortgage industry since 1998 with brokerages throughout Utah County. I have been with First Colony Mortgage since 2014. I truly believe this is the best mortgage company in the world. I consider myself an expert in both qualifying borrowers for a mortgage and determining the best loan program to fit their needs. I have both processed and originated loans and feel that I am extremely knowledgeable about the different aspects of the home loan process. I love meeting new people and consider my clients my friends!
