Hunter Marckwardt


NMLS #242073


Hunter Marckwardt consistently ranks as one of RPM Mortgage's Top Producing Loan Advisors. In 2019, Hunter and his team closed 205 loans and funded over $132 million in loan volume. Team Hunter takes a professional, structured, and detailed approach to lending. Their single mission is for their clients to never look for another lender again. They believe this philosophy is the only approach they can take in this chaotic lending environment to ensure 100% client satisfaction.

One integral aspect to the success of Hunter’s career has been his emphasis on creating honest and lasting relationships with the realtors he does business with. Weekly updates, quick response times, knowledgeable answers, and clear communication are the cornerstone of Hunter’s dedication to supplying the best possible professional relationship. Instead of viewing it as an option, going the extra mile is always seen as a necessity to Team Hunter.

They believe in clients vs. customers and “my pleasure” vs. “no problem.” Their value needs to go beyond service.


  • Hunter and the Team are true professionals. Being in the financial service industry myself, I usually don't find many professionals that exceed my expectations...however, they flew way past my expectations. If you want a truly great team helping you secure a loan, please stop wasting your time looking for someone and call Hunter and his team.

  • It is rare to come across a professional that is on their game at all times. Luckily, Hunter is the exception to the rule! I trust him implicitly and rely on his advice and knowledge of the industry daily. He is able to accurately assess my clients' needs and guide them through the entire mortgage process flawlessly (and with a little humor when needed). Hunter is a true professional who continues to impress me, my team and our clients with each and every transaction.

  • Hunter and his team are seriously rock stars! We were referred to RPM after we realized the necessity of having a more fully processed loan upfront, rather than just the basic checks and the generic pre-approval letter from your average loan broker/lender. We had two other pre-approval letters from other lenders, one of which I had worked with on three occasions previously, and the other was a big bank (WF) which was incredibly slow and lacked communication skills. In this time of all cash offers and multiple bids per home though, we needed something a little more solid than that. Enter Hunter and the RPM team... They asked for everything upfront, and I mean EVERYTHING. No detail was overlooked and they correctly anticipated every nit-picky detail the underwriters would come back and ask for. We had everything we needed sent to them up front (paystubs, tax returns, bank statement, etc.) and they asked for signed templated letters of clarification to explain every possible question that may come up -- change from maiden name to married name, explanation of several credit inquiries over the past few months (shopping around for rates), and letters explaining work history (work at home Dad), etc. When it came down to the day our offer on the home went in, they drafted our formal letter in a matter of minutes to match the exact amount needed (i.e. not more than that which would imply to the sellers that they could sucker us into paying more). After our offer was accepted, they shifted into high gear and got things moving quickly. Since so much of the legwork was already complete, once we had the acceptance and the appraisal, everything was whisked away to underwriting. Whereas usually they come back with a huge checklist of missing items, the only thing we needed to supply was a cleaner version of one of the things we submitted which came thru funky on the fax machine. The team is extremely organized -- their weekly "Tuesday updates" were an awesome way to keep us in the loop as to the upcoming events of the week and how the loan processing was coming along. They are perfectionist and never missed a detail, and had a wonderful way of explaining things in simple terms, making sure we had a full understanding of the process. We ended up funding the loan in about 22 days. The entire team was truly a pleasure to work with -- professional, upbeat, friendly, detail-oriented, and perfectionists. We are so glad we chose to work with them.

  • Buying a house is a stressful process at any time, but especially in this crazy Bay Area market right now. As 2nd time home buyers, we were prepared for it but had also seen first hand - as sellers of our first home - how the escrow process can be a bumpy ride (our buyers took an extra week to close and it was a nail-biter for us). All this to say, we expected our experience to be high stress and it was exactly the opposite. At the very beginning, Hunter met with us in person to go through all the numbers and make sure that we could go into any offers being fully educated buyers. This was so important in this climate of non-contingent offers. Then, when we had an offer accepted, the team was just amazing. We had to do most of the up-front forms and documents assembly on a flat bed scanner at my cousin's house in rural Missouri while out of town unexpectedly. The team didn't skip a beat with their patience with us and clear explanations of what would be needed and when. They were incredibly accessible and responsive and gave us really helpful weekly updates throughout escrow. We had no surprises, no tense moments, and best (and most surprising) of all, we closed earlier than expected. You can stop your research now. Work with Hunter and his team and you won't regret it!

  • Unequivocally RPM Mortgage, and Team Hunter specifically, is the only place we would ever consider going for a mortgage of any kind. Hunter and his team provided my wife and I an innovative and financially attractive mortgage solution on an incredibly tight timetable. Even under considerable time pressure, they were consistently clear and transparent in their communication, provided thorough and accurate follow-through, and remained consummate professionals. Perhaps most of all, Team Hunter's customer service was second-to-none. Working with them, even on a transaction as complex as our particular mortgage, was like dealing with super-smart friends you know you can trust. Hunter Marckwardt and the entire team are the standard by which all lenders should be judged. My wife and I are lifelong customers and we are forever grateful.

  • Our experience with RPM Mortgage, specifically Hunter Marckwardt and his team, was stellar. My husband and I were first time home buyers and we didn't have a clue about securing a loan or the process that's required. We were very nervous about getting the house we wanted with a mortgage we could afford. From the start, the process was explained to us in a way that made sense. The team was patient and kind when we had what seemed like a laundry list of questions and Hunter made us feel like we were his most important clients. His team was on it - timely, organized, informed and supportive.
    RPM is polished, professional and work hard so that you don't have to. I give their team my highest recommendation. We are now living in the home of our dreams, with a mortgage that we feel comfortable with. My husband and I couldn't be happier.

  • As a top for producing real estate broker Working in one of the most vibrant and fast-paced markets in the country. I understand what is required to succeed in purchasing a home in this highly competitive East Bay market. In addition to working with the top agent, buyers must also partner with a well-known mortgage broker who will guide them swiftly through the loan approval process and continue to support them until close of escrow. Hunter’s team takes client service to an extraordinary level and delivers the same care and support at every funding level, so whether you’re seeking a small or large loan (or seeking a refinance), Hunter’s team will make you feel like you’re their only client.

  • Hunter and his team are the best out there. When my clients work with them for financing, I have instant peace of mind knowing everything they promise is going to happen on time and every time. They will go as far as they need to not let me or my clients down. The quick closes and excellent reputation they provide have more than once gotten my clients into contract over other similar offers with less rock-solid financing. My clients get a supremely professional, high experience guide through what can be a very stressful process. The first class service and support Hunter and his team provides comes with super competitive rates and loan programs too. If that’s not enough, they are smart, fun and friendly people!

  • My business has tripled since using Hunter. I no longer have "to worry the loan through" as I did with other lenders, which frees me up to handle more business. He is amazing with my clients and they are all left feeling like they understood the process and were given the best service and deal structure available. He truly is the best lender I've come across.

  • There are lenders (I have worked with a few) and then there is Hunter and his team. The core of his philosophy are actual relationships. That's his motivation, driver and a guarantee of superb results for you. I've done a lot of business with Hunter and not once did he fail to impress me or my clients. Real estate transactions are rocky and emotional. Things can go wrong and they often do. You want your team to have a person who is straightforward, accountable, professional and just pleasant to deal with. I know I'm in good hands, are you?
