Mason-McDuffie Mortgage is Licensed in Utah

Mortgage and Lending with Mason-McDuffie Mortgage, Conventional Loans, Jumbo Loans, FHA, 203(k), USDA, VA, NMLS #138061 MMCD #1141

We're licensed for Mortgages in Utah


I'm happy to write that as of Monday this week, I'm licensed to do mortgage originations in the state of Utah.  I've put Utah off for some time because the licensing requirements are a little more tedious than most states due to my being the only licensed LO in the state at my company.  Because of that, I had to go through some additional steps (and 40 hours of education -ouch!) to become the Principal Lending Manager (PLM) for Mason-McDuffie Mortgage in Utah.


That said, it's been a long time coming.  Some of my favorite places and people are in Utah, and during non-COVID years, I typically spend at least a week or 2 in the state, hiking and enjoying some down time in Southern Utah around the canyon areas and in my favorite place in the world, Zion National Park.  When things are a little snowier, the area around Salt Lake becomes a winter wonderland and calls out to powder heads like me who are happiest on bluebird days bombing down a mountain on a snowboard through fresh powder.  Utah really does have it all!


For customers looking for a mortgage in Utah, we'll be able to provide the same industry leading service that our customers and referral partners are accustomed to.  That means quick closings, competitive rates, and a great product offering (Conventional, FHA, VA, USDA, Jumbo, nonQM, and more!).  We are a direct lender with in-house processing, underwriting, and closing - that means no outsourcing and complete control of every aspect of the loan process.  In layman's terms?  A better customer experience than what much of the mortgage industry offers.


As our team continues to expand, we prioritize knowing the ins and outs of business in each state we do business, to ensure that we provide the same 5-star service to each and every customer that puts their trust in our team.


We look forward to serving Utah, and are extremely grateful to be able to help even more people in our great country achieve the dream of home ownership!


The JM Loans Team is now licensed in: CA, CO, DE, FL, GA, MD, MT, NC, NJ, NV, OK, OR, PA, SC, TN, TX, UT, VA, and WV (we also offer coverage in Hawaii via LO Katerina Stephens NMLS 1574190, and Arizona via LO Erica Reno NMLS 2026893).

Congrats to you!  I see that you aren't yet licensed in Arizona, is that an area that you might eventually expand to?

Hi Brian England - my assistant is already licensed there and I'm finishing up my pre-licensing education, so AZ is next on the list, I expect to have it in hopefully less than a month, but our team already covers the state : )
