"I have used Jeanne at Arete Mortgage for three different mortgage products over the last 6 years and I will not use anyone else in the future. Jeanne is efficient, professional and thorough. She has always demonstrated a genuine concern about matching me to the right product. Jeanne is extremely knowledgeable about her business and she produces answers and results without excuses. She has always taken the time to explain the process to me and has kept me informed during every step of the mortgage and closing process. The added benefit of dealing with Jeanne is that she is fun and personable; a rare find when applying for a mortgage. I would recommend Jeanne and Arete Mortgage to anyone who needs mortgage assistance."

"Who knew you could feel this way about a mortgage company? Jeanne and the entire Arete Mortgage team are amazing. I trust Jeanne to not just get me a mortgage, but to find the exact right financing for my situation. I have used Arete Mortgage for personal and business transactions. Jeanne comes up with ideas that I would never have dreamed of. Thanks Jeanne!"

"Jeanne and her associate, Allison, took a hard look at the particulars to refinancing my mortgage. It's not always all about the numbers, it's about ways of finding a good fit for a client that's needing to either refinance or finance a new home. My personal situation was tricky and after meeting with other mortgage companies and being dismissed, I felt like it was probably a "no go". But I then was referred by my trusted financial advisers to Arete Mortgage. Jeanne took a hard look at my situation and with a "can do" attitude, she ran with it. Jeanne did not give up when roadblocks popped up and, in the end, she basically changed my lifestyle by finding a mortgage that made sense."
