John Lemos – The Kind of Service That Brings Great Joy, by Haley Freeman - 

Genuine, conscientious and humble of spirit, John Lemos is a mortgage advisor at New American Funding who balances his sharp attention to detail with his love of people to help them find the best financing for the home of their dreams.

John has built a successful business by focusing his attention on building relationships with agents and by demonstrating high integrity with clients.

After achieving success at both ends of the industry spectrum, working for small brokers and large banks, John was ready for a strategic move to a company with the best attributes of both, and the right leadership to help him cultivate new opportunities. He found that combination of strengths at New American Funding.

Details Matter

John feels confident about delivering service not only to clients, but to the Realtors® who trust him with their transactions. On-site operations ensure accurate communication and consistent, on-time delivery of loan services. “We are fully staffed with high quality individuals who know their roles and do well at their jobs.”

John’s congenial nature combined with his painstaking efforts to remain well-informed about industry changes help him build trust with clients.

“Agents have repeatedly expressed to me that one of the most important things a high-producing Realtor® needs is good communication. My understanding of guidelines and regulatory matters means I know the parameters of a transaction and will communicate honestly and promptly about turn times and closing dates right up front, so everybody can make appropriate plans.”

The Joy of Service

“I remember listening to Dale Carnegie tell a story about someone who came to the realization that they needed to stop worrying and start serving. I’m so blessed that I learned this lesson and am part of an industry where I can really give my heart to it. There are many times when people come to me in despair because they have fallen out of escrow or have been told they can’t qualify for a home. It’s so rewarding to help them achieve their dream when they thought it was almost impossible. That is the kind of service that brings great joy.”

    Nothing but good things to say about John. This was my second home purchase and this was a piece of cake compared to the previous one; largely due to John. He communicates well and often, answers any and all questions, and tells you what to expect so that you are prepared. This man is an asset to his company and a valuable member of any team. I strongly recommend that if you are going to purchase a home or refinance to use this man. He will get all future business from me and my family.

  • Jana V - Santa Monica CA (Yelp! Review)

    John Lemos really does deserve five red stars. He is both knowledgeable AND nice -- a very helpful combination. He was patient with our questions, and he knew the answers! John went the extra mile for us. He was highly recommended by another professional, and that recommendation turned out to be spot on, so now I'm recommending him to others. If you're shopping around for a mortgage, then I suggest that you give him a call -- you'll be glad you did.

    After an unsuccessful dealing with my credit union I was referred to John by my real estate agent. I was stressed out and unsure I would be able to get another loan processed in enough time to close escrow. John assured me that everything would be ok and that he would still be able to get me closed on time. John kept me informed every step of the way. I couldn't have asked for better service. If you've ever purchased a home you know how stressful it can be, but thanks to John he alleviated a big chunk of that stress by making the process as smooth as possible. John is now my go to guy, and I will definitely be referring all friends and family to him.

    Thanks John!!!!

    John is very knowledgeable, high on good followup/communication through out the whole process. It is rare to see his level of customer service from a mortgage lender. He assisted me w/ my second home purchase which is a bit more work related, made himself available at all times to keep communication open between myself, my agent and seller's agent. I highly recommend him and his team for your real estate needs!

  • Sharie S - Riverside CA (Yelp! Review)
