    JJ and his team were incredibly warm and genuinely friendly. Doing business with them was comfortable and educational, without feeling "clinical". It was very easy to understand and they made a real effort to make sure we were as confident as we could be. In business it's the details that really make the difference and JJ and his team at LeaderOne have spared none. Thanks again for your help!

    JJ was a personable, knowledgeable, and efficient professional during our process of financing a mortgage. He helped make everything comfortable, much more so than previous experiences with lenders. I feel fortunate to have been referred to him -- he was so patient as we muddled through getting our paperwork together! I would recommend him unconditionally to other prospective buyers.

    I loved working with JJ from the very beginning. As a retiree, I was afraid I might not get financing on a fixed income, especially for a condo. He reassured me that he'd do everything he could to secure the funds, and he did just that. He was even sympathetic to the fact that I needed to find a place that allowed cats. S,o the process was seamless and enjoyable! Great experience.

    We have worked with JJ recently on the purchase of our first suburb house. JJ is a real professional and provides all the right advice to the buyer to make the right decision. He understands the real estate market pretty deep and works with you to personalize the financial needs for the purchase. I am really impressed by his “I am there for you whenever you need me” attitude and actually, he delivers that way. We really had a great experience with JJ and LeaderOne Financial, I highly recommend J

    Our mortgage was anything but ordinary. There were several factors that I was dreading to deal with before we started the process, JJ and his team guided us through these headaches seamlessly! They kept us up to speed on everything that was going on, and somehow made it fun.
