About KC Mortgage Duo
Mike Verhoff (Mike V) and Mike Corwin (Mike C) are the KC Mortgage Duo. They have been friends for over 30 years and were even in each other’s weddings. The Duo worked together for several years on the Kansas City Missouri Police Department (KCMOPD). Mike V left the department and moved out of the area, but they maintained their friendship. They have always discussed going into business together sometime. The difficulty was what type of business that they both believed in and the right timing.
Eventually, everything aligned, and they became Mortgage Loan Originators. From there, the KC Mortgage Duo was formed. At their core, the Duo love working with, and serving others. In particular, our Heroes: Police Officers, Fire Fighters, Military Personnel, Nurses, Emergency Medical Technicians and Teachers. Heroes form the backbone of our society as they are on the front line of critical services.
