We’re proud to announce that JJ de Villiers recently joined the Transparent Mortgage team. He will be a Team Mortgage Loan Originator for the company and we’re excited to have him on board. We know that JJ’s skills and personality will represent the Transparent Mortgage approach to exceptional customer service.

An Important Role

As a Mortgage Loan Originator, JJ will be responsible for originating new mortgage loans, whether they are leads that come through Transparent Mortgage or his own marketing and social networking efforts. These leads will be converted into applications. Once the application is approved, then JJ will oversee management of the loan all the way until it is funded.

JJ brings eight years of experience within the mortgage industry, with all of his past experience focused on loan origination. His education also includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from San Diego State University.

Mortgage Experience

JJ was initially drawn to the mortgage industry when he interned at a private equity mortgage fund. During this experience, he saw just how major a mortgage loan was in people’s lives. JJ realized that if it was not managed responsibly, a mortgage loan could lead to insurmountable debt. He knew if he was helping customers get the right loans for their situations, he’d be able to get the job done right. “I want to be a trusted advisor,” JJ says. “I want to help people and put them into a better situation, and this profession gives me that opportunity every day.”

We know JJ will be a natural fit with Transparent Mortgage because we share the same customer service values. Our name is “Transparent” for that very reason. We are clear and upfront with our clients throughout the process so they can make sound mortgage loan decisions. “What I like most about Transparent Mortgage is the true core value of really being transparent,” JJ adds. “This not only applies with the customers and referral partners, but with ourselves as people and as co-workers. I believe we are empowering homeowners to have trust in the mortgage process again. There is an amazing vibe with everyone in this company.”

Local Connections

JJ is a San Diego native. He grew up in La Jolla and graduated from La Jolla High School. He is even married to his high school sweetheart, and they are expecting their first child in January. JJ was an accomplished baseball player throughout school and he continues to be an avid softball player. He loves the outdoor lifestyle and climate of San Diego, whether he’s going to the beach, hiking, kayaking, fishing or barbecuing with friends and family. JJ also has two dogs named Buddy and Mowgli.

Please share our excitement in welcoming JJ de Villiers to the Transparent Mortgage family. If you have the pleasure of working with him on your mortgage loan, we’re certain you will have a great experience. Give him a call or contact anyone at Transparent Mortgage when you are ready to buy a home, move up, refinance or cash out equity.
