Meet John Briggs: Mortgage Professional, Lawyer and All Around Great Person to Know
The beginning of September is like the start of a new year. For our Jewish friends it marks the beginning of a New Year and for everyone going back to school it is the beginning of a New Year...a fresh start...a blank page.
This September can be an amazing opportunity for you to get a fresh start with your finances!
A friend of mine asked me if I knew anyone who could help him as a first time home buyer to get pre-qualified.
Meet John Briggs - who I was blessed to meet 8 years ago through BNI, a business referral network when I still had my New World Greeting Cards Company. We had a one-on-one as it's called in BNI and it marked the beginning of a beautiful friendship!
When we needed to refinance, I felt very anxious about some issues with my credit rating. John helped us to feel so comfortable with our situation and provided us with not only outstanding financial advice but the comfort and kindness of a dear friend. We have worked with him on a total of 3 occasions and he makes the often times tedious and frustrating process of refinancing a smooth and seamless one. He is a joy to work with and has the highest ethics and integrity of anyone I have met in the industry. Shortly after we had bought our home, the person who worked with us to get our mortgage reached out to us to refinance. It turned out our mortgage payment went up because she did not disclose everything to us. With John, you know that he will work the numbers every which way to save you money and he watches the rates and the financial markets like a hawk on your behalf.
I picked up the phone to give him a call after my friend asked me for a referral to make sure he was still in the business. I was delighted to find out that in fact he just signed on with Bank of America! Even though it had been awhile since we spoke, it was just like old times! And after I had connected him with my friend he asked, "Now what are you doing? How can I help and support you and your latest venture!"
A few days after our delightful reconnection, John sent out this email:
