Providing Abilene with Better Mortgage Options for More Than 15 Years

Linda and Chris have been married and have lived in Abilene, Texas since 1982. Linda started in the mortgage business in Abilene in 1985 and Chris joined her in the business in 1992.

Since 1992 they have worked for different companies, always opening and maintaining branches for larger companies that were based outside Abilene. The mortgage rates they would be required to quote would always be based on covering the overhead costs of maintaining a large corporation. Chris and Linda believed that Abilene was a unique market, but the corporate offices wanted to run their Abilene branch similar to their metroplex offices. They soon discovered that if they only had the overhead of a small office in Abilene, they could quote their customers a much better interest rate on their mortgage loan.

After much prayer and seeking God’s will, Love & Love Mortgage Inc. was opened in April of 2001. Our goal is to treat clients in such a way that we have new friends instead of file numbers when the loan closes. We strive to give such excellent service that every client would recommend their family and friends to use our company for their mortgage financing needs.

“Just a note to thank you for your assistance during our recent refinance. We know you got us a great deal and the whole process went extremely smoothly. We appreciate your professional and courteous efforts throughout the entire transaction.” - Randy and Dixie Morris

“We just wanted to tell you thank you so much for helping us with our loan. We probably would have given up if it weren’t for you. We really appreciate you not giving up on us and all of your hard work.” - Brandy and Levi Maldonado

“Thank you for all your hard work. I didn’t think I would be a homeowner for at least another five years. The boys are very excited and we will be having Thanksgiving at our house this year! You are an angel!” - Lisa, Michael and Justin Young

“As I have expressed so many times, Jennifer and I are so thankful for Love and Love Mortgage. Working with you and Chris for the third time now, we were presented with our biggest challenge and you came through for us with exceptional promptness, service and integrity. I personally want to thank you for being so patient with my incessant questions and occasional anxiety. Our home dreams would not have come true without you!” - Travis and Jennifer Seekins

“I just wanted to let you know how enjoyable this transaction has been. You have been incredible to work with, always keeping me in the loop as to what was going on and what you needed. I was a bit concerned about the distance between us, but that proved to be a non-issue every step of the way. You have been outstanding, and a true pleasure to work with!” - Brian Bass

“Love & Love Mortgage made buying our first home unbelievably easy. Chris not only got our financing approved quickly, he got us a better interest rate than we were hoping for.” - Cody and Melissa Slaughter
“Best experience ever! This is my third time dealing with Love & Love and I can't imagine dealing with anyone else. They are so professional, thorough and meticulous that closing was a snap! Thank you for taking such good care of me time after time! If I ever move again, Love & Love is my first step!” - David Ahlschwede  

“I had a limited window to purchase our home and move my family in before an extended deployment. Linda at Love & Love was not only understanding and efficient, but incredibly friendly while saving me money. Anyone buying a home in the Abilene area should check out Love & Love before settling on a lender.” - Brooks McFarland  

“This is the 3rd home purchase for us with Love & Love! Every time we move to Abilene, we call her first! In addition, when we were moving away from Abilene, we used them for advice on purchasing a home in Florida. This last home buy was accomplished from Florida to purchase in Abilene. Linda was amazing, we were able to Fed Ex all the paperwork. She is so great, I do not ever want to buy a home without her and Chris. You will not be disappointed if you use Love & Love!” - Jason and Carrie Register  

“Used Chris twice.....great experience and great customer service both times. Rock star service for home loans!” - Mike Mellott  

“We've actually used Love & Love (Chris and his wife Linda) for two loans in the Abilene area and would use them again for a 3rd if we found ourselves back there. They were the loan officers we used to purchase our very first home, in fact, and were a tremendous wealth of knowledge for us, all while being incredibly courteous and patient with first-time and out-of-town home buyers. The second house we purchased (our second time in the town) ended up being 2 houses from theirs and I can, with good faith (haha, pun intended), say that they were just as wonderful as neighbors as they were to do business with.” - Tanya Rauch
“We just wanted to thank you for the professional, courteous and friendly environment that you provided to us throughout the entire home buying process. We have to admit that we were rather nervous about buying our first home and the road bumps that can occur during the process. Our worries were quickly eased however, as we observed how diligently you worked to ensure the process went smoothly. How wonderful a feeling it has also been to know that even after the paperwork has been signed, that I am still able to contact you with any questions that may arise knowing that I will always receive a warm response. Thank you for making the home buying experience a great one and we look forward to any future contacts that we may have.” - Benjamin and Linda Koenen

“We just wanted to say thanks for making our home purchase such a great experience. As you know, this was our second home purchase and the whole process was so much better than our first home purchase. You gave us several options and presented the information to us in a way that we could understand which made us very comfortable during the process. The personal service you provided gave us the feeling that our business was important to you and that we were being taken care of by professionals who know the mortgage business.” - Steve and Karen McMillan

“We just wanted to let you know how much Randy and I appreciated all that you did for us. You made the home buying process as easy as possible. Since this was the second home we have financed through your company, we knew what to expect, however, you always made us feel calm when things got stressful. Not only did you help us purchase the home that we are in now, you also helped the buyers of our home with their mortgage. There was never a hurdle too high for you to get the job done. Other mortgage companies have a lot to learn from you and your wife. You guys are great and everyone I know will hear the praises of Love & Love Mortgage!” - Randy and Dustee Robinson
