John and his team were the greatest! I have never bought a home, so I was very pleased to realize that he made it so easy to reach out with any questions at any time. He made me feel comfortable with the process and made sure I fully understood every step of the way. I don't know what a normal, day to day, process is like for other clients, but I felt that John and his team went above and beyond to make this happen for me. Thanks to John, and his team, Angie, the realtor, and Brasfields & Associates working together in familiar unison I am now proud to say I own my first home. My little family and I could not be happier!

Thanks, again, John, for everything! May have been just another day at the office for you, but it changed my life!

John Baertels made our first mortgage experience a good one! He was always available for questions, returned our calls quickly, and helped guide us through this home buying process. We felt like he was on our team. Glad to have had his help as we settle into our new home!

John and his team from Community Mortgage did an outstanding job in helping us secure our mortgage for our new home. We were relocating to the area from Northern Virginia so much of what needed to be done was long distance, but the team was always available, responsive and helpful to the very day of closing. A special shout out for Corie and Krystal who assisted us to make sure we had all the proper documents for our loan approval. I would definitely recommend Community Mortgage, John Baertels and his team!
