His ability to elevate the mortgage experience and continually identify new ways to streamline procedures and expand services has proven massively effective in generating lifelong client partnerships built on experience and trust.


After a quick rise from VP, Divisional Manager Retail Lending to Divisional President, Jonathan now serves as Divisional President, where he has further expanded his reach, now overseeing branch growth, sales training, and the implementation of new innovations that not only boost sales but create a culture of support and mentorship that empowers driven mortgage professionals to thrive.
