John is a consummate professional. Responsive and honest. He has helped me with my last 2 home loans and I would refer him to my family.

John Stetson is a great Mortgage Broker who was able to walk us through the complicated morass of the loan industry when there were many people only interested in making a quick buck and not caring about what product they got for their customers. John is easy to talk to and makes the complicated portions of loans easy to understand.

John handled my loan on a home I bought in January 2018. He made the whole process easy and got me a great interest rate. he also went above and beyond by advising me and helping me prepare my previous home for sale. If you’re looking for a loan guy, look no further. I can’t recommend John highly enough, five stars!

I purchased my first home in November, and could not have done it without John. He worked really hard to make my experience a smooth one, and he was always available for any questions I had. John is very easy to communicate with, professional, and an absolute pleasure to work with. I will always reach out to him for any future needs.

John has been a great connection for me as a Realtor. I refer people to him, he follows up fast and professionally. Most of all he is courteous and straight speaking which matches my style and my clients appreciate that too. I am very happy to call John a business “partner” and a friend too. Highly recommend!
