James was excellent to deal with. Very professional and knowledgeable throughout the entire process. He made getting a house easy. He also made himself reachable after hours and even during the weekend. Will highly recommend him to other friends and family seeking a loan. James and his team did an excellent job. Everything was easy to do. I enjoy the online experiences and being able to sign everything online.

James was amazing, I will recommend him to anyone and everyone! The whole process from start to finish was very quick and efficient. As a first time home buyer I had many questions and they were able to answer all of them and put my mind at ease. They offered my husband and I a very competitive interest rate and also gave us a credit towards closing so now we can buy a ride on lawn mower to mow our large back yard!

James interview Q&A

What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
When helping customers find the best home loan, I try my best to figure out their motives and goals. For a purchase, especially a first time home buyer, I try to make the process as easy and stress-free as possible to get them into the house they desire. When it comes to refinancing, I try to find the reason behind the homeowner\'s search for a new mortgage. This way I can give as personalized of an option as possible from the hundreds of home loans we can offer at Guaranteed Rate.
Tell us about a mortgage product that consumers may not be aware of?
One of the best programs available that a lot of consumers do not know of is a no PMI loan up to 97% of the appraised value. Whether it is a Mass Housing loan (MA only) or conventional Fannie/Freddie loan, we can eliminate a borrowers monthly PMI payment and save them thousands of dollars. This is especially popular for borrowers who initially had an FHA loan and want to get rid of their monthly mortgage insurance payment.
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
To insure a smooth underwriting process, I recommend providing us with as much detailed documentation of your financial situation as possible. Understand that we are trying to paint the underwriters a picture of the transaction, and the more questions they have about what has been provided, the longer the process will take. As well as we can work together is how smooth the process will go!
Summary of where you grew up: family, affiliations, college, high school, etc.
I grew up in Braintree, MA with two brothers and a sister. I attended Boston College High school and also earned a Business Administration degree from Salve Regina University.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I am a very outdoors, hands-on type of person. I enjoy boating and cookouts with friends in the summer, as well as taking trips snowboarding in the winter. I am also a pretty handy person to have around if something is broken, because most likely I can fix it!
