Jason Smith is the VP, Branch Manager, Residential Mortgage Loan Originator, and one of the "Mortgage Masters" at NOVA® Home Loans. NOVA Home Loans specializes in helping families purchase homes with a wide array of loan options and programs. NOVA services all loans in-house, expediting the home loan process for their customers. NOVA is equipped with underwriters, processors, closing and funding specialists, and even a credit services department that helps improve home buyer's credit scores with no extra cost. Jason Smith and his Mortgage Masters team at NOVA are everything but ordinary home loan lenders. They are called the Mortgage Masters for a reason - they know the guidelines like no one's business and look down every avenue to find ways to get their customers qualified to purchase a home. Jason puts his whole heart into what he does, regardless of the loan size. Without hesitation, Jason and the Mortgage Masters are true, genuine, and honest partners for their agents, as well as expert advocates for their buyers. With such uncertainty in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Jason and his team have taken advantage of the opportunity to lend with historically low interest rates. Jason is confident that after such difficult times, the real estate markets are destined to remain strong, which will allow him to lend more and help more people buy homes. With so much business, however, Jason and his team have run into one problem; a lack of staff to keep up with the work. Jason is forced to work longer hours each day in order to keep up with the volume of loans NOVA is dealing with. One thing that has helped Jason stay on track through these difficult times is his passion for helping Veterans. As a Veteran himself, nothing fills his bucket more than being able to get a fellow Veteran in their dream home. Jason, with the help of the Mortgage Masters team, was just named #4 in the country by the Scotsman Guide for Top VA Loan Originators for 2019, which is something they take great pride in. Moving forward, Jason Smith has his eyes set on becoming a well-known leader and authority figure in the social media world and in news outlets. Jason's main goal is to help families get into the homes of their dreams, and being an advocate for the mortgage industry will allow him to rid fear from prospective home buyers.
