CJ's philosophy is simple - he wants to help home-buyers and homeowners  make an educated decision with a team that they can trust; and he wants to offer a place for professional loan officers to call home, thrive, and focus on building lasting relationships.  He began his career in the mortgage industry in 2007 as a loan officer.  He was quickly promoted several times before reaching the title of President's Club in 2010.  In 2012 he was promoted to a sales management position where he helped run a team of new loan officers.  He then accepted a position in a consulting capacity to bridge the gap between loan officers, borrowers and underwriting.  As a consultant he helped to qualify and close loans for thousands of borrowers that had lost hope and were sent for denial.  In 2015 he helped launch a start-up consumer direct division for a mortgage lender.  In 2016 he helped launch a service retention platform for a regional bank.  He then became a Branch Manager in 2017.  He has helped fund more than $600 million in mortgage loans during his career.

Tim has a strong and genuine belief in the "customer for life" principle of doing business.  Even after you have closed, Tim will continue to track your loan for future financing opportunities.  Referrals from previous clients, real estate professionals, accountants, attorneys, and financial advisers has always delivered the majority of Tim's production.  Tim is a mortgage professional and has been in the industry for more than 18 years.  He has ran purchase and refinance platforms locally and nationally.  His focus has always been on creating an environment where loan officers and clients have an efficient process to close loans and create a partnership.  At Supreme Lending we are closing loans in under 30 days and Tim believes you will find that we will be your perfect lender for life.
