Jim interview Q&A

How long have you been in the mortgage business and what inspired you to get into it?
I have been in the mortgage industry since 1999. The thought of being able to help people fulfill the dream of owning a home was my biggest inspiration for entering the mortgage industry.

Who is your typical customer and what questions do they typically have?
I work with many experienced buyers, but also a growing group of first time buyers. The most common question from all clients is what product will work best for them to meet their budget for a home?
