Are all mortgage lenders the same?
No. It’s true that all lenders want to lend to qualified borrowers. However, that’s where the similarities stop.
What makes The Christian Johnson Group different from other lenders?
You are not a loan number to us. Once you become one of our customers, you become one of our people. Our faces and direct numbers appear on your monthly statements–not some mysterious 1-800 number–because we really do care. You may also see us around your community, at church, a charity, or your kids’ school—because our kids go to schools around here, too. We are local, working at a local branch, and working off a local mortgage bank, Caliber Home Loans. We have big-bank products without the big-bank headaches.
Why should I choose a local company like yours?
Home buying is a complex process where many things could possibly go wrong. But, you’re dealing with local REALTORS® and local title companies, and chances are, we know who you’re working with. That means you’re starting the process with established trust between your lender, your REALTOR®, and your title company which leads to a smoother transaction. And because we’re basically down the street, you can come visit us in person. We’ll tell you about the neighborhood.
Once you become one of our customers, you become one of our people.
Why is knowing my neighborhood important when choosing a lender?
Knowing your neighborhood means we know others who know it as well. Using a local appraiser means using someone with expertise in your area and a proven track record, which helps smooth the process. This creates less stress for you. We can guide you with lending questions, home ownership advice, and real estate investment strategies. These topics can be complicated for lenders outside of your area.
What makes for a smooth transaction?
Working with seasoned local professionals helps. With nearly 20 years of experience, we have a proven process that help us navigate challenges. Think of us as your pilots. Part of our job is to steer around the turbulence (a typical part of the home buying process) so that your flight is smooth and uneventful. This is a complex process with many deadlines and details that will require your attention, so communication and teamwork among you, the REALTOR®, the title company, and everyone involved is essential. We will guide and inform you so that you can take the proper actions and make sure closing happens on time.
