Jim's extensive knowledge of mortgage products and loan options has been extremely helpful. He keeps deals moving in the right direction!

Tom Nevin - Realtor

Jim just closed another loan for a client of mine and as usual, I received nothing but praise about Jim from the client, and of course, Jim is always great to work with for me as an agent. He communicates the timelines and processes well throughout the transaction to stay on track and close on time. And this has been the case with self-employed and harder to underwrite clients as well as the "easy ones." I highly recommend Jim for all your lending needs.

Jeff Gillett - Coldwell Banker, Walnut Creek

Jim is fantastic! Not only does he have a great range of products and excellent rates but he is always quick to respond. I always know my clients are in excellent hands with Jim and his team!
