John interview Q&A

How long have you been in the mortgage business and what inspired you to get into it?
I have been in banking since 1988 and started doing mortgage lending exclusively in 1993. I viewed the problem solving and challenges we face daily as an exciting and rewarding career choice.
Tell us about a mortgage product that consumers may not be aware of?
VA loans are a real favorite on mine and the program has some pretty neat options most take advantage of. The specific option I am eluding to is using you VA entitlement to purchase a home up to $1,000,000. In fact VA is the only government loan to go to $1,000,000. There are some catches as always but a very good option for our veterans.
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
The key to a smooth closing process is having our team setting the appropriate expectations from the beginning. Clients who know what to expect and what they need to do to make the process as painless as it can be. Expectations are everything.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
Being a single dad with three kids under 8 doesn\'t leave me with a lot of spare time these days. If I do get some free time I really enjoy hunting (wild turkey) and golf.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I have spent the last several years traveling to locations I choose based on one of Ernest Hemmingway\'s stories: Marlin, Dorado and Wahoo fishing in Cabo, Sailfish in Xctapa, Rooster fish in Costa Rica, Dove hunting in Argentina, Fishing and hunting in Idaho, and Tarpon and tuna fishing out of the keys. The trip that may end this pattern is my African hunting safari I have planned for this October. Who knows what the next author I will be excited about next but now that my kids are getting big enough to travel they may get a bigger say. Ok maybe not. :)
