John Schalow recently helped us purchase a home. He went above and beyond to ensure things went smoothly. There were some complications due to the nature of the property and I can honestly say that without his advice and proactive support, we would not have gotten our dream home. I have recommended John to family and friends without hesitation, and will continue to do so.
John was super helpful, and very good at explaining exactly what we were doing and clear on his suggestions for why one package was more suitable for us than another.
During the course of our closing, we had friends who ran into trial after trial that held up the their closing. They sold before we even started searching, but were unable to close until after us, due to their broker not being as capable as John was for us.
I recently purchased my first house and had the pleasure of working with John. John was very knowledgeable, fast to respond, and very helpful in setting me up with a realtor as well. This being the first house I purchased I thought it would be a long extensive process that would take months. In working with John and my realtor the process was over in about a month and I was able to purchase the exact type of home I wanted to as my first buy thanks to the great work done by John.
I would highly recommend using John in any home buying process.
Was our first time buying a house and John made the whole experience easy and great and would defiantly work with him again and would recommend john to any of my friends or anyone who was wanting to buy a house
John is always the professional. He helped me set up my refinancing with total ease and it made a world of difference. Always there if a question came up and really drove us through the whole process soup-to-nuts. I would highly recommend John for any of your financial needs in the housing arena.

I am a self-employed person and have had a difficult time refinancing because I don't technically have a "salary". John was very persistent and thorough and was able to shepherd me through the process successfully. If you are self-employed, John is the go-to guy for all mortgage matters.
John provided us with a great service. He has excellent knowledge because of his many years in the mortage business, he is very personable and was tremendously responsive throughout the whole process. He also provided us with expert advice on a variety of product offerings and gave us some great and helpful insight on making the entire process go as smoothly as possible. Because of John we had a great experience for such a signigicant event in our lives!
