• I thoroughly enjoy helping people realize the dream of homeownership. There is nothing more fulfilling than watching the happiness of families and first-time homebuyers as they secure a new home. This desire to help people get into homes led me to this career nearly 20 years ago and keeps me excited to go to work each and every day.

• I realize the benefits of homeownership in our community. I was born and raised in South Ogden and live here with my wife of 21 years and four children. Bringing homeownership to my neighbors and friends solidifies our community and revitalizes our neighborhoods.

• I became a Loan Officer in 1995 and a Branch Manager in 1997. I have closed millions of dollars of loan transactions over my career as a Loan Officer and Branch Manager. My particular areas of expertise are working with investor loans and securing financing for first-time homebuyers and those who are self-employed. I will make every effort to find the best loan program and pricing for your situation.

• My Branch Office is equipped to complete the entire loan process in-house—all loan processing, underwriting, closings, and funding are handled in our local office. As a result, I have a proven track record of closing loans as quickly and efficiently as possible, and I will be up-to-date on the status of your loan at all times.

• I will quickly, accurately, and honestly answer your questions. I understand the importance of maintaining continuous communication throughout the loan process and commit to providing you accurate, timely, and relevant mortgage advice.

• I love being affiliated with Academy Mortgage. Academy is an integrity-based mortgage banker. We do what we say we will do. Our company is also respected nationwide for our unwavering commitment to responsible lending practices. It is of utmost importance to me that I protect my borrowers and safeguard their financial wellness for many years to come.

Jeff as been great to work with! The thing I like about Jeff most is, he doesn't tell me what I want to hear just to get the deal, If he cannot do it, I find out right off the bat. So, once he gives me the green light, I have the utmost confidence that it will get done.
