John Kotrides started his career in the banking and mortgage industry in 2003. He understands all clients are different and require different levels of service, as well as different avenues of communication.
“Nothing creates more anxiety than silence. Regular communication is key. I don't disappear after 5 p.m. or during the weekend. I’m always accessible and return calls promptly.” – John Kotrides.
Having relocated himself, John enjoys working with those moving to the area for the first time. “The type of buyer that takes the risk to make a major move in the interests of finding new challenges, better opportunities, or just a new adventure, appeals to me greatly,” John says. “Being entrusted to advise and guide them through an intricate, emotional, and life-changing transaction is a heavy responsibility and one I take seriously.”
While the mortgage process culminates in a closing, John points out that’s it’s really an opening of the next stage of their lives. “I’ve helped many families over my career — families that relocated due to happy circumstances and tragedy alike. Transactions necessitated by marriage, others by divorce,” John says. “Regardless of the reason, I know that in some small way, I made the experience easier, more transparent, and in the end, helped them along their journey. I hope it’s everything they dreamed it could be.”
