Jesse and his crew were amazing to work with! We loved the fact that they are up to date with technology!

Dustin W.- Bloomer,WI | MAY 2016

Jesse was very communicative, nice, and friendly. He kept us in the loop, which helped to keep us from having any anxiety over closing on time.

Dennis C. – Saint Paul, MN | SEP 2015

I would use Jesse Mills and Guaranteed Rate again. Every person, every step , it all was so nice to hear a nice voice on the phone helping you. I was always spoken to so nice. I was so stressed and worried but they were so nice!!!

Michael C. – 9/11/2015

Everyone we worked with responded quickly to emails. Jesse was very communicative, nice, and friendly. He kept us in the loop to explain why certain steps were taking longer than normal, which helped to keep us from having any anxiety over closing on time. Closing was quick and easy, just had to sign paperwork.

About Jesse

My mortgage team and I have built a reputation for excellence in client service, extensive industry experience and a dedicated commitment to our clients. My expertise in the mortgage industry and forward thinking approach allow me to adapt and rapidly respond to market changes that affect you. We take the time to learn about you, your goals both now and down the road and help explain all the options you have and together we will come up with the best loan for you. While I have all of the typical loan products available such as FHA, VA, Conventional, Jumbo and USDA plus many Down Payment Assistance products, where I differentiate myself from other Mortgage Loan Officers, is by staying focused on providing excellent client service and honest, reliable consultation. As a dedicated mortgage professional, with over 20 years in sales and over a decade in the mortgage and real estate business, I will be there for you every step of the home buying process. From selecting the right home loan product that suits your life stage and financial means, to providing real-time loan status and communication between you, your real estate agent, the title company and my office, to being able to answer all of your questions during the life of your mortgage, I am committed to making you feel you are my #1 priority! Exceptional client service makes a difference! I strive to help each of my clients obtain their specific and individual goals with a do-whatever-it-takes attitude. I know you have to earn peopleýs business, both before and after the sale. A deadline is a deadline and must be met. My personal and professional relationships are extremely important and I grew up with the Golden Rule. I try to live life to the fullest and encourage all the new friends I meet each day to do the same. We understand excellent communication is a must and promise to keep you informed, educated and aware of each step of the process from start to happy ending!

Jesse interview Q&A

How long have you been in the mortgage business and what inspired you to get into it?
14 years and the desire to help people with one of the largest financial decisions of their life.
Who is your typical customer and what questions do they typically have?
I have such a range of customers from 1st Time Home Buyers to Real Estate Investors and Jumbo clients that it allows me to help many people in many situations. Most often everyone is concerned with how to better their financial situation, both short term and long term, which is exactly how I analyze everyone's unique individual circumstances.
What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
By talking less and listening more. Each person and their financial situation is different. I like to hear what's most important to them today as well as down the road and help put together a tailored approach just for them.
How long have you been in the mortgage business? What awards have you won?
I've been in the mortgage business about 14 years. I've had the opportunity to be in the top 10% of my office, district and region many times. I've also had the privilege of managing teams of other mortgage professionals and helping grow their success.
How has the mortgage industry changed since you started, and what would you expect in the future?
I feel there is so much information that the average consumer doesn't either fully understand or realize how it impacts their financial situation and I take the approach of an industry expert and consultant to help them realize what THEIR options are based on THEIR situation and what is best for them, after fully listening to what goals they are looking to accomplish. This has and always will be important. The back end of using technology to make things efficient and painless continue to evolve quickly to make a better experience for borrowers and Guaranteed Rate is on the forefront of this, I'm pleased to say!
What 2 or 3 mobile apps would you recommend for home buyers or house hunters, and why? What Smart Apps do you recommend your customers use for the house hunting process?
I'd have to say my personalized mortgage app that I share with my clients is definitely a great resource. They can see current rates, use the very accurate payment calculator for all types of loans, and contact me with the push of a button! Zillow is another great app, of course, as well as Mint for planning your budget and savings!
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
I love to travel and meet new people and see new places around the world. I now have two adorable children and an amazing wife that I get to take on adventures as well! You can find me skiing, biking, kayaking, hiking or camping in my spare time but usually with my iPhone or laptop within close range just in case work calls!
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I've been lucky enough to see over 35 countries around the world and love adrenaline pumping sports like bungee jumping, sky diving, scuba diving and travelling with a 1 year old and 3 year old! ha ha
