What Clients Are Saying

I have had the opportunity to hire John Shea as my mortgage broker on several different occasions. I continue to hire him as his service is second to none. John is very knowledgeable and experienced and practices his profession with the utmost diligence. He is patient and takes the time to not only explain the process but offer different alternatives that a buyer has. He is the only broker that I have used who personally showed up at the closings. I don’t often endorse recommendations but do feel as though he is most deserving based on his performance.

John made it easy to start and complete the process. It only took a couple of phone calls to determine what we wanted to do. The paperwork was easy and all online. Absolutely no hassles to apply and close.

John Shea was very knowledgeable regarding getting us approved for a mortgage loan. We thought we had bad credit and would not be able to purchase our own home. John took the time to look at our finances and figure out that we would be able to meet the requirements to obtain a mortgage when we were turned down by other mortgage brokers. John and his team are very professional and have great follow through.

Just a quick note to thank you for all of your hard work and efforts during my recent refinancing. This was my 5th mortgage through John and as always John and his team were professional, prompt returning all of my calls, efficient and closed my loan in a quick fashion. I cannot thank John enough for his hard work, dedication to details, and perseverance in seeing things through to completion. Plus I am extremely happy with the rate John provided.

John was great to work with to take out a mortgage on our new home. He was available anytime of the day that fit my schedule and promptly responded to emails and voicemails to handle any questions or concerns that I had from pre-approval through closing.

I had been turned down by two other lenders and was ready to give up on me and my family’s home buying dreams when a friend of mine told me I needed to call John Shea. He said he had helped him in a similar situation obtain a home loan. Right from the beginning I was very hopeful things would be different this time due to John's knowledge, professionalism and patience. John asked me numerous questions and obtained all of the pertinent documentation. He thoroughly researched my unique situation and confirmed with his head underwriter that he would be able to help us secure a mortgage and help myself and my family realize our dream of home ownership. I have since refinanced 2 times with John and he will always be my go to guy for my lending needs. I have also referred numerous friends and family to John and all have experienced the same professionalism, level of service and great rates and terms that I received. I highly recommend you consult with John for your home loan needs. You will be extremely happy you did.

I had the pleasure of working with John Shea and his company, Compass Mortgage, while buying my first house. John assisted me and my husband, Joseph, in getting approved for a mortgage, which was certainly not an easy process. We had many obstacles to overcome, and John helped us with every one of them. He had to make many adjustments to our application along the way, and always did so with a positive and encouraging attitude. John knew that our sellers wanted a prompt closing date, which limited the amount of time he had to process our paperwork. He was able to help us meet that deadline, despite the small window of time given to complete our application, in order for us to have a hassle-free closing. He called us on his days off to give us updates, or to tell us what paperwork he still needed. We were able to reach him on weekends by cell phone if we had questions, and he was always available. His office was far from our home, so he offered to drive out to us to collect paperwork in order to save us the trip. And, to top it off, he found us a very low rate for our mortgage. He was there to offer us guidance and support, and even came to our closing. We are so thankful that we were given the opportunity to work with someone as thorough and diligent as John Shea. I think the difference between him and other brokers is that he really cares about his clients. Both I and my husband highly recommend him and his company, Compass Mortgage.

This is the second time I have used John Shea regarding a mortgage. Everything went very smoothly. He was always available for my questions. There is no doubt I would recommend him to anyone looking to get a mortgage, or refinance.

My wife and I were first time home buyers and did not know what to expect or where to start. We had many questions and concerns that made the process stressful, but John was always available to answer questions. He walked us through the process helped us closed quickly.
