About Shawn Boykin

Your mortgage is personal, and I understand that.

The last word you’ll ever hear me say is “no”. Well, at least my clients won’t hear it. Because whenever I meet a challenge, the first word that pops into my head is always an eager, virtuous “how”. All of my most memorable clients at first seemed like a challenge. But instead of turning them away, I thought to myself: How can I help this person with limited financial support finally secure a home? Or, how can I help this first-time homebuyer, who can’t find the space in between monthly bills, finally build enough savings for a down payment? In my 25 years of mastering the mortgage industry, I have proved anyone can become a homeowner — it just takes some elbow grease. My determination stems from the first time I was in the home buying process when I was turned away by a credit union. I pushed myself to learn more about all the resources and programs available to me so I could finally reach my dream of homeownership. Once I did, I put my knowledge to good use and began helping others. Because of these humble beginnings, I remind myself there’s never an excuse to say no. The answer should always be “yes, and this is how we do it.” Best spot in Kansas City for ice cream: Coldstone and my favorite flavor is anything my kids' order. First job: I worked at World of Fun at the music hall as a cashier. It was such a great time. What makes you smile each day: My wife and four kids, who are smart, full of life, and keep me traveling.
