Self-Employed Mortgages in San Diego

For those seeking more flexibility in how they work, self-employment is a great option. But while there are many perks to being your own boss, self-employed types such as small business owners and freelancers face disadvantages like unstable incomes and higher taxes. You might wonder if you can still buy a home, and the answer is a resounding “yes”! If you are self-employed, you can apply for loans under the same process as others. Self-employed home buyers can apply for Conventional Loans, Non QM Loans, and more. The type of loan that would best suit you depends on your income.

Rated one of the top 100 mortgage brokers in the nation

by the Scotsman Guide

I shopped around a bit for a broker, and was referred to John by a coworker. He was by far the most personable, professional, and proactive broker that I interacted with. He promised me that he was doing everything he could to protect my family's money and get us into a house that we love, and he did. The bottom line is he got us our desired results, he offered great advice, and he earned my trust and confidence. I would recommend his services to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and passionate mortgage broker.

John is great at what he does, especially for first time homebuyers. He is willing to go the extra mile for his clients and will explain exactly what he's doing along the way. I'm so glad we were able to work with him and I highly recommend him.

Beyond grateful to have been referred to John G. right after getting our offer accepted on a home. We would not have been able to do it without him. He secured us a great rate, which was a game changer in our decision to purchase. It was our first home purchase, and he helped us navigate every single thing, and was extremely responsive and available to chat when we needed him. The entire escrow process was smoother and quicker than we could have ever hoped for. He was a pleasure to work with, and we hope to continue to work with him in the future.
