As a Certified Divorce Lending Professional, (CDLP™), I focus my practice on helping divorcing homeowners make a more informed decision regarding their home equity solutions and the divorce team identify any potential conflicts between the divorce settlement, the mortgage, and the real property.

Experience

John has been a residential mortgage loan originator since 1993. He founded and operated Integra Mortgage, Inc. from 1997-2009, twice earning a spot on the Dallas Business Journal s coveted Book of Lists under the Largest Residential Mortgage Lenders category. After the 2008 real estate market collapse, John reinvented his mortgage practice, which he describes as more of a boutique  operation, with himself and a small support staff.

John is a past president of the Dallas/Fort Worth Association of Mortgage Brokers and was one of the first lenders in Texas to obtain the Certified Divorce Lending Professional (CDLP) designation issued by the Divorce Lending Association in 2015. He has written and taught CLE courses on divorce/mortgage issues and is trained in Collaborative Law (basic training).

John dedicates 75% of his mortgage practice to helping divorcing individuals and couples with their home loan and credit needs. He is known not only for his empathy in working with divorcing clients, but also his skill in closing loans efficiently and on time.
