Minneapolis Breakfast Club

Making Mortgages Great Again with Marketplace Home Mortgage

Driving up to the 400 Tavern wondering who the early birds would be today. Apparently, the usual suspects of Dick Anderson and Mark Arnold were already there.

Vice President Tony Rubin started today’s meeting with a ring of the bell, moment of silence, and a good joke.

Our Honorary Members in attendance were Ron Britz, Mark Simon, and Martin Peyer.

This year’s Breakfast Club Golf Outing is June 18th weather permitting. Some of us will score better with the hard water (ice) around the course.

Don Thiets had sent an e-mail about a charitable luncheon on April 24th from noon to 1PM in Lake Elmo.  Don is trying to fill up a table and could use some support.

Tom Ashbaugh gave an update on why we were at the 400 Tavern this week and Elsie’s next week.  The cost difference between The Woman’s Club and other locations is substantial and the membership will have to make a decision about a venue in the next few months.

Robert Sanberg said Randy Korn is looking for carpenters to handle all his work.



This Week’s Craft Talk

Jon is married and has two sons. His son Connor has joined the business to partner with Jon. The family are big sports fans and on a recent trip to California they took in a Wild game and a Timberwolves game. Apparently, they couldn’t find anything fun to do in LA.

Jon is one of the owners of Marketplace Home Mortgage and they are 27th on the list of fastest growing Minnesota companies with operations in 8 states. They were also named “Best Mortgage Company” in 2017 by Twin Cities Business.

Jon and Connor Peterson take an innovative approach to helping transform people from dreamers to homeowners. With Jon’s more than 30 years’ experience in the mortgage industry and Connor’s fresh take on communication with the modern home buyer, their focus is on the client experience. They can assure you they will do their very best to bring ease to the home financing process.
