Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to consider working with me. I strive to reach 100% customer satisfaction, and work hard on behalf of my clients to help you understand the many loan programs available, and help you choose the best product and best rate(s)for YOUR particular situation. We are direct lenders and brokers, and are FHA certified. We also offer a wide range of products and programs through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, as well as Independent Lenders and Investment Banks to include "hard" money lenders and Commercial Loans.

We at MVB Mortgage enjoy helping people understand the process, learn about the programs open to them, help them negotiate the paperwork and get their loans closed on time, and without headaches. We can find the right rates and terms for your situation. We do not charge application fees, so your consultations are free and without obligation.

Having been in the mortgage business for almost 19 years, I have observed several cycles in this business. I attended High School both in upstate New York and Alexandria, Virginia. I graduated from George Mason University with a B.S. in Economics. I also attended the Fund for American Studies at Georgetown University, where I interned with the Heritage Foundation. I was also fortunate to earn the Wall Street Journal Award in Economics in 1996.

I will work hard for you and your family, and will strive to earn your referrals, as well as being your Mortgage Professional for life. Referrals are the heart of our business, they are earned through integrity, communication, service and respect.

Please be aware not all quotes are equal. Rates are the commodity, what sets our rates apart from another is our unparalleled customer service that adds additional value to your mortgage experience. Thank you for your consideration, and I hope, your business.

Was pre-approved.
Mr. Ryan is very helpful and knowledgeable...he immadiately returned my call and started working on my request.

Thank you very much for the "Exceptional Zillow Mortgage Response and guidance regarding acquiring a loan”. As someone who is actively looking to buy a home, I will immediately implement your suggestions of improving my credit score. I know your response was not only well thought out but required a great deal of time and effort.

Again, I appreciate your ideas look forward to working with you as a reputable lender.

We connected, but it did not work out.
James was very responsive and despite knowing my situation that I might not able to choose his firm as lender, he provided unbiased and prompt reply. I would love to work with him in future.

Gave me a quote on Zillow, but it did not work out. Glenora Hills, North Potomac, MD 20850
Jim Ryan is someone you can trust to provide sincere candid advice as you search for the best mortgage financing. One conversation with Jim will convince you he understands the nuances of the system, and he keeps himself well informed of current industry developments. This is a very important asset which allows Jim to provide thoughtful recommendations so you get the most value for your purchase. More importantly, Jim is one of those individuals with a very high standard of integrity. Jim actually recommended that I speak to another lender who was able to offer a much more competitive rate for particular loan product best suited for my needs and location. In my particular case, Jim went out of his way to check-out this other lender before formally referring him to me. Not everyone is willing to potentially sacrifice a deal, particularly in today’s market. I will be referring Jim to my friends and colleagues, and going to him in the future. For these reasons, I strongly recommend you contact Jim and discuss your particular needs.  MoreLess
