Growing up on a dairy farm in central Wisconsin, Jeff had a strong work ethic instilled in him from a very young age. He appreciates the work that goes into finding and maintaining your home and loves to help homebuyers achieve their goals.
After an initial negative experience purchasing his first home, Jeff was inspired to become the kind of lender that would educate his clients and walk them through the sometimes-confusing process. He credits that experience as giving him the insight into the requirements of a great lender and realize his potential in the field of real estate finance. He has now been assisting homebuyers for more than 15 years. Before transitioning to real estate finance Jeff was in the insurance industry and worked as an in-house lender for a real estate broker.
Jeff knows that purchasing a home is a significant life event and may very well be the biggest purchase you make in your lifetime. He keeps this in mind as he works personally with clients to find the right program to fit their specific needs. He prides himself in closing deals that other lenders falter on and are unable to get to the finish line. A recent review of Jeff’s from a couple previously denied their VA loan said that financing with him was “a dream come true.”
In his career Jeff and his skilled team have helped hundreds of new and existing homebuyers by treating their unique scenarios with personal attention and proving his careful and precise process. His specialties are first time homebuyers and government loans. Whether it’s a purchase or a refinance transaction, Jeff and his team work diligently to make the transaction as smooth as possible with the assistance of GoPrime’s advanced technology solutions such as the initial Smart Application, eSignatures, and even hybrid eClosings.
Learning about clients’ different situations and living preferences is a favorite part of Jeff’s job. He finds that people are constantly surprised to find out about programs GoPrime offers after getting pre-approved at a local bank and being presented with limited offerings. Jeff offers a variety of purchase and refinance loan options including Conventional, FHA, VA Home Loans, USDA and Jumbo.
Jeff mostly services the Madison area in Wisconsin and is grateful for all the work his team puts into closing each loan. He enjoys volunteering for the Clean Lakes Alliance in an effort to keep the lakes clean. He also is a huge tech-nerd and spends his free time building PCs from scratch. Additionally, he enjoys cooking and trying new recipes, and gardening.
