Rick and the team at Northpoint Mortgage did an excellent job navigating me through my recent mortgage. Rick was able to find the right loan for me that ultimately saved me thousands of dollars over the life of my loan. The team was great to work with, and Rick was there to celebrate with me and my family when the sale closed. It was a great experience all around, and I would not hesitate to recommend Northpoint Mortgage!

Mere words cannot express my sincere gratitude for the help I received from Rick when I was about to give up after two years of searching for a reasonable mortgage. A friend introduced Rick to me, he became a bridge between me and his mortgage company Northpoint I thank God that I met Rick because of him now I am a proud home owner, long live Rick, long live Northpoint.

I highly recommend Rick‎ Akatyszewski and Northpoint Mortgage for your mortgage needs! I have gone through the mortgage process with him several times, he makes the process very easy and not stressful. I really appreciate his knowledge of the industry, he is always looking for the best mortgage that fits my situation. He is also incredibly responsive, he answers emails and phone calls almost instantly. He even called me from his recovery room a short time after he had major surgery. When it comes dedication to his job and dedication to doing what is best for his client there is no one better than Rick!

Working with Rick A made buying my first home an absolute dream! He was immediately responsive from our first phone call right through the day of closing. He made sure I understood every part of the process and answered every minuscule question I launched at him. He answered every single email, text, and phone call. He was so down to earth, easy to talk to and never made me feel stupid. Whenever I felt like I was bothering him with so many questions he reassured me that it was what he was there to do and it really showed me how much he cared about me and my loan and how much he loved his job!! He even took phone calls as late as 10pm to calm my nerves. He was incredible! He made me feel important.

I had always dreamt of owning a home since being raised in apartments all my life and when I thought I was finally ready I started the process of preapproval with another, very large, company. After 6 months of 80% of emails going unanswered and feeling completely defeated, I decided to look elsewhere. That’s when I found Rick! I called him on a Saturday during my lunch at work and he talked me through all of the options of home buying (the other company did not do this) and actually made me realize I wasn’t going to be buying a home in the town I wanted anytime soon, even though I wanted a home by the end of summer. He assured me I was ready to buy and we agreed on a zero money down USDA loan and he pre-approved me that day! I started looking for homes that week and by the following Friday had found the house of my dreams!! It was absolutely perfect and here I am 6 weeks later sitting in my new home!! All the thanks to Rick and his team of incredible hardworking people!! I couldn’t be sitting here without you

Let us start with Rick is the BEST lender you could ask for! Our journey was crazy – and long – but he stood by our side the entire way! He even came to our closing on a Friday night to make sure everything ended perfectly. From start to finish, over about 4 years and through the craziest house purchasing situation ever, Rick was our right hand man and we couldn’t have done this all without him! Here’s our story in the shortest version possible.

About 4 years ago my fiance and I decided to start looking for a house and it was recommended we touch base with Rick to get pre-approved and see what we were working with. We called him the next day and he met with us later that week to not only tell us what we were pre-approved for but help us figure out what would be reasonable for our lifestyle to spend. He told us if any houses came on the market, to let him know and he could run numbers to see what our monthly payment would be. Every time we found a house that we really liked we would text him. He would respond no matter the day or time, 10 PM on a Sunday or 7 AM or a Wednesday he would respond and we would decide if it was worth looking at. FOUR YEARS and about 40-50 houses later, we found the one! We are first time home-buyers with under $10,000 to put down (and a wedding happening in a month!) and Rick got us a SUPER amazing loan with a great rate and no PMI! This is where the “long story short” happens… let’s just say we ran into a bunch of issues but I am going to highlight 2.

1. The appraisal on the house was $22,000 lower than what we offered (couldn’t get loan and almost had to walk away.

2. The seller didn’t have title insurance and the title had been incorrectly discharged so basically the house didn’t have a title.

Rick helped us through the issues better than anyone else in the entire process and better than we could have ever expected. He got us a second appraisal and made that whole situation right again making us still able to purchase the home and then got us a new title company and attorney (one of 5) that worked out the title issue so we could close! We only closed 3 weeks later than the original closing date even though they said it could take up to 9 MONTHS!!!

He literally did not stop working on this “case” and made sure that in the end we made it to closing on our dream home! He even gave us the nicest gift ever at closing!!!

Rick became a good friend over the past 4 years, and especially over the past 3 months! We finally closed last Friday and again, NEVER COULD have done it without Rick’s support.

No questions asked – if you are looking for a Mortgage Loan Originator, RICK IS THE ONE FOR YOU!

I was a first time home buyer and Rick was exceptional during the complete process, he did explain to me the all lending process. I received support and answers to all questions that I had. I was able to close in less than 30 days with Northpoint and the dream came true… If you have a dream or you are dreaming please work with Rick… you will be surprise how easier the process will be…

Wonderful working with Rick Akatyszewski (Team SaRa) for help with the purchase of our new home! Not only did he work well with us, but also our real estate agent (no matter how many questions or changes we made) to help make sure all paperwork was done and our loan was secure for our new home. Rick was very professional, informative very hard-working and accessible whenever we needed answers or had any questions. We thank you for all of your help and hard work and highly recommend you! ??????????

Rick was fantastic to work with! He offered careful and concise explanations for all questions we posed to him. He was very perceptive to our concerns and needs, and helped us obtain the right loan package for the purchase of our home. We will certainly call Rick for our next loan, and we will not hesitate to recommend him to our family and friends!

I have worked with Rick on a couple of Refis over the years! He is amazing – highly responsive, knowledgeable and diligent. Living an hour from his office didn’t matter. The entire process was quick easy and done via email. Don’t think twice before giving Rick a call!

– Catherine B.


I had the distinct pleasure of working with Rick Akatyszewski to purchase my first home! I highly recommend Rick … He is knowledgeable, kind, honest, and professional, and I always felt I could personally rely on Rick. He is the best and you will not be disappointed!

The process was easy. Everything was done online through emails. It is very likely that I will refer this lender to family and friends. It was a pleasure doing business with him.

– Christine


Rick gets it done quickly and is always quick to get right back to you! I’d highly recommend him for your mortgage. He was willing to help us when others seemed slow to respond.

I don’t use this word lightly- But I have to say Rick was perfect! From the very beginning he made me feel very comfortable- explained things thoroughly, answered my questions- this was my first mortgage on my own so I was a little nervous- but all went seamless!

Rick- Perfect!
