Sr. Loan Officer

Kristy VanLanen

Here's what people are saying

“Call Kristy to see how you can save thousands when buying, selling, or refinancing a home.”


Gary and Lisa Ness - “Kristy Van Lanen was great to work with. I never knew that I qualified for a veteran's loan and didn't know what the process was. Kristy helped me with the paper work and directed me to our local veteran's office. I highly recommend Kristy!!

Jared Spude - "Now that I have worked with Kristy Van Lanen and Cornerstone Mortgage I cannot imagine going anywhere else. My wife and I purchased our first home and recently refinanced with Kristy and she was so helpful, taking the extra time to explain the process and answer our questions. On top of it all, Kristy went out of her way to help me (as a veteran) receive home purchasing benefits and navigate the VA Loan process which can be extensive. The best way to describe the whole process is comforting. I could call Kristy any time and ask a question or get clarification. She is extremely knowledgeable, experienced, personable and easy to work with. Our experience with Kristy Van Lanen and Cornerstone Mortgage was spectacular. We have recommended our family and friends there, specifically to her, and will continue to!"
Jennifer Thetreau - "Our family began working with Kristy Van Lanen two years ago. She was a dream! Kristy knew the ins and outs of the mortgage industry which helped navigate through individually complicated legal paperwork to get the best rate available. Recently, Kristy notified us of a change which benefited our mortgage. She was able to meet with me well after normal business hours and we now enjoy a lower monthly mortgage. She is a dedicated broker who is always looking out for her customers best interests. I always recommend her to my friends and my family. I trust her knowledge and judgment; I will continue to rely on her for our future endeavors!"

Mark Heintzkill - "Kristy Van Lanen is everything I expected and more. You will not find a more pleasant person to work with. She has a wonderful personality, a willingness and ability to carefully listen, the ability to communicate clearly, and a real desire to serve her client. She is always prepared. And when faced with a last minute curve ball, that could have derailed our home purchase, she managed to come up with a solution that satisfied all parties. Our home purchase was a wonderful experience and it was due in large part to Kristy's participation in the process.
Give her a call.

Alex Middleton – "Kristy Van Lanen was exceptional. I was referred to her by someone and I'm glad I listened to them. Kristy always returned my calls, and she always made sure that I felt comfortable in the buying process. When it came to getting everything prepared for final signing I didnt even have to really do anything she took care of everything ( very stress free). Being a veteran myself and working with a veteran such as Kristy really made me value this experience even more. My fiancée was also very pleased"

Stephanie Roth –“Kristy Van Lanen was incredibly professional! She knows her field extremely well. I especially appreciated how she seemed to genuinely care about us - not just as customers, but as homeowners and friends. I would highly recommend her to anyone buying a home! Signing stacks of papers is awfully dull, but Kristy made the experience painless and even enjoyable!”

Doreen Mohr  - “We highly recommend Christy VanLanen from Cornerstone Mortgage. Christy made our home buying experience extremely easy!! She was very professional and organized!!! She was always available if and when we had questions and made us feel like we were special. She was there for us every step of the way and even came to our closing!! Christy made the entire process enjoyable!!”

Melissa Ness – “Kristy VanLanen made buying my first home a great experience. She made sure everything ran smoothly with my loan, and was always available to answer any questions or concerns that I had. I couldn't have asked for a better lender to guide me through the finances of purchasing my home. I would definitely recommend Kristy to everyone. She is awesome!!”

G Furds – “Kristy VanLanen at Cornerstone Martgage made it fast and easy to get our new house through a VA loan. It seems fewer and fewer are willing to work with VA Home loans. Kristy VanLanen made it super fast and easy to get the mortgage we wanted.”

Matt Zarter – “I've known Kristy for a number of years - she did a wonderful job guiding us through the financing process! I've worked with other mortgage brokers in the past, and her level of professionalism / expertise was far above and beyond anyone I've met. Highly recommend!”

Bradford Arneson – “Kristy VanLanen helped me obtain my first VA loan and a recent refinance at a lower rate. She is always pleasant and prompt, even responding by phone and/or emails on the weekends or evenings. I have never worked with anyone as efficient and pleasant as Kristy. She truly makes you feel that your are important. I would highly recommend Kristy to anyone and look forward to working with her in the future.”

Courtney Brown – “Working with Kristy Van Lanen was a great experience. She was always on top of everything and kept us informed at all times. She was available whenever we needed her, even on the evenings and weekends. Her level of knowledge and expertise on VA loans is the best I've ever seen, and this was our 3rd home purchase. She made the whole process a breeze, so much so we thought is was too got to be true!!! We truly enjoyed working with Kristy and would recommend her and Cornerstone to all our friends and family. Thanks again so much for everything Kristy!” 

Eric Johnson - “ My wife and I recently worked with Kristy Van Lanen at Cornerstone Mortgage. We were extremely satisified with the results. Kristy was a pleasure to work with and her communication was top notch the entire way. I have worked with a few other Loan Officers in the passt and Kristy truly stands above all. Thanks again for all your hard work. We love the new house!”

Ellen Ellingsen – “We recently did a VA loan closing with Kristy Van Lanen and were more than satisfied. Being a closing agent for a title company, I see a lot of loan people with different degrees of knowledge. I was more than pleased with Kristy's level of professionalism, efficiency and her "get it done" attitude. She was always available and even returned emails and texts over the weekends. I would recommend her highly.”

Rich Appel – “We started talking to Kristy Van Lanen several years ago about building our new home and using the VA Loan process as our financial loan. Kristy and I served in the army together in Iraq, so I knew of her work ethic and character before we ever started this process. What I didn't know was that the people she works with carry those same characteristics. Cornerstone Mortgage worked with us throughout as they made decisions and represented us through this journey of building our dream house!” I recommend with great sincerity Cornerstone Mortgage and if Kristy is available then she is your representative as you navigate the financial process of building. Kristy's honesty and integrity is impeccable and her charm and willingness to work hard to finish the mission is spot on! Thanks Kristy and Cornerstone Mortgage! Rich and Michelle Appel Chilton WI

Kerrie Van Schyndel – “Kristy Van Lanen was our Mortgage person and she was amazing. She met with us at a very convenient time, even if it was 7:30 at night. Kristy answered all of our questions in a timely manner as well as communicated with us exactly what to expect or what were our next steps. Her welcoming personality and willingness to work with our situation made us very comfortable with our decision to go with Kristy. The whole process of buying our house, that we absolutely love, could not have been less stressful- she made it that easy. THANKS KRISTY!!!!”

Jason Cox – “Kristy recently helped us secure a construction loan to build our dream home. She is a consummate professional and exceeded our expectations in every way to meet our needs. She promptly returned our phone calls/emails answering all of our question in a timely manner, many times after hours if needed. We were so happy with our experience working with her that we’re going back to her for our final mortgage once our house is built. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a mortgage who wants an expert in the mortgage services field to find the right mortgage at the best rates possible.”

Nikki Seitz – “My husband and I were having a lot of problems with our previous lender. We went to work with Kristy Van Lanen and she was nothing short of wonderful! She was always on top of things and helped us to sort out mess after mess to get us the best possible options. She was very knowledgeable and was able to assist us every step of the way. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a mortgage. We had a perfect experience and will definitely be using her services again!”

Rebekah Sickler – “We just refinanced our home with Kristy VanLanen. She was prompt, professional and thorough. She went above and beyond to make the refinance process easy for us. I would highly recommend Kristy and Cornerstone Mortgage to anyone looking to buy or refinance. You will not be disappointed.”

Amy Lauder – “Kristy helped us throughout our home buying experience and was always available to answer our questions as first time homeowners. She is very knowledgeable with the process for obtaining a VA loan. She also assisted us with refinancing after alerting us of the declining in the rates. We are very thankful for her assistance throughout her years at Cornerstone. I would highly recommend Kristy if you are in need of mortgage services.” 

Jeff Miller – “Kristy Vanlanen is by far the best person I have met and worked with. We had a 90 escrow with another company and 3:days before closing they decided not to fund a VA loan. Realtor had her contact me and under 30 days we were VA loan funded. She kept me updated daily and gave us hope. Loved talking to her and she always found answers to my questions. Highly recommended her. Thank you so much. I love my home.”

Michael Hafran – “Kristy Van Lanen:  I have worked with Kristy on an initial mortgage in 2014 and a subsequent refinance.  She is absolutely without equal!  She was incredibly diligent, always upbeat and positive, and worked closely with my lawyer and myself to get things accomplished when outside factors threatened to derail the closing.  She worked very hard on my side to make the process as streamlined as possible.  And the absolutely more incredible aspect is that one day out of blue, Kristy calls me and advises me that rates are really low and I should refinance!  I've never come across a mortgage officer who keeps a watchful eye out for her clients.  And once again, going through Kristy the refinance process was fast and efficient.  I will only do mortgage financing through Kristy.  I highly recommend her to anyone in the market for a home purchase or refinance.”  -- Michael (Wauwatosa, WI)

Nola Oberhofer – “Kristy Van Lanen is a Godsend! She was professional, caring, personable, and very clear about expectations and goals I needed to meet to buy a house. I've been working with her and Cornerstone Mortgage for about 3 years and I can't say enough good things about the service, patience, and working with me. She has not only been my bank lender yet she has also been someone I can count on and get support in many areas, such as working with the realtors, credit agencies, and what it means to buy my first house on my own. I did it!!!  I bought in Howard-Suamico and love my new house with my 3 beautiful children. This is huge for me and having someone that is understanding and truly cares about my investment, means everything!!  I highly recommend her for customers and wish her the best in everything!”
Thank you very much, Nola Oberhofer

Bill Hebert – “As a Disabled Veteran purchasing my home alone for the first time using a Veterans Loan,  Kristy Van Lanen was highly knowledgeable in the ins and outs of the entire process.  She helped me  feel comfortable in my purchase and was patient with each redundant question I asked.  I recommend her services to any Veteran looking for a great experience in utilizing the VA Benefits.  As a added Bonus she is also a Veteran.”
