Craft Talk:

Mark Simon introduced Jon Peterson as today’s craft speaker. Jon is a small-town kid from northern Minnesota where his parents still live. Jon has one wife, two sons, and enjoys golfing, hunting, red wine, vodka, and spectator sports for the local pro teams.

Jon and his son, Connor, are a team of mortgage experts with over 30 years of experience in originating mortgages. They are with New American Funding, a California company with over 4800 employees, 181 branch offices, and service over 200,000 mortgages. They are a direct lender that originates, funds, and services mortgages.

One of the more innovative things they are doing is to “recast” mortgages to assist buyers in buying a home first and selling your home later.

Jon can originate a mortgage in for you in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Florida. He can do conventional, FHA, and VA mortgages for purchasing new homes, existing homes, 2nd homes, and 1-4 unit investment properties.

Give Jon a call or email to register and discuss your mortgage needs at jon.peterson@nafinc.com or 763-360-9652.
