I highly recommend working with Jon Okun.

I found myself in the stressful situation of getting married and buying my first home in the same week! Jon streamlined a complicated process and helped me to successfully complete the purchase despite the time constraints of my wedding and honeymoon. He made the most of each email and conversation so that I could focus on my wedding. He was always available for any and all questions. My confidence was reinforced by the rate that he locked in for me. I'm truly grateful for his professionalism, as well as his patience and understanding. I couldn't have worked with a better person.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to Jon for the stellar job he did in representing our interests as our mortgage broker. He went the “extra mile” whenever we had questions or concerns. He was re-assuring whenever we were anxious, calmed our nerves and generally made the entire loan process as painless as possible. Jon was always a professional and prompt at returning our phone calls and emails. Jon also made sure we were always aware of all our options as first time home buyers. We really felt like he had our back through the entire process. Thank you, Jon Okun!

Jon…one lender once called me “high-maintenance” upon meeting me for the first time. I say the exact opposite is true. I like to work with professionals that are on their A-game so I can spend less time “checking-in” and more time doing sales. After several years in the business, my expectations are high but I’m anything from high maintenance. I just like it to be done right.

I should also admit that I was EXTREMELY nervous when Ashley chose to work with you. Let’s be honest…it was a complex coop deal and I didn’t know much about the way you worked. Man oh man, instead of being nervous, I should have been celebrating! My client just handed me a GIFT!

As you know, the lender can make (or break) deals. Like other agents, I’ve had my fair share of transactions fall apart in the past year (due to lender oversights, laziness and an inability to “straight talk” with me or the client). But you proved me COMPLETELY wrong…and I couldn’t be happier that my client chose to go with your services.

It’s clear that I have found a true professional and partner in Jon Okun. Let it be known, this is the first of many referrals that I will send your way. My client was thrilled with “ease of process”. She also raved that you were such a “bulldog” in getting things done for her. She didn’t have to worry about it, and neither did I…which is simply a Godsend. It is also part of the reason I closed record sales in the past month. You bring a level of professional and “get it done” mentality to the transaction that is instrumental in bringing a deal to fruition. Your communication was the perfect blend of honestly and “I’m not it”, which I couldn’t appreciate me. You allowed me to concentrate on real estate and know that my clients were in perfect hands. These are the relationships that I rely so heavily on to get deals closed and maximize the client’s real estate experience.
I anticipate many more years of working with you and what I hope will be an abundance of successful closings together. Thanks for being at today’s closing, Jon (Okun)…you gained a BIG fan in the past 30 days!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for everything you have done for me. I was referred to you in 2004, 2005 by my close friend Paul N. and you handled everything swiftly with excellent results. I have emailed you several times in the past year or so inquiring about refinancing rates, etc. to the point where I almost thought that I was bothering you, but you responded immediately every single time with the best information backed with law, the rates, market, etc. I am closing on the 23rd of April with my new rate of 4.8% which I am very happy about and that’s because of you riding things out with me for the past year. I recognize the degree of dedication and perseverance required to do what you do. The results you were able to obtain are a tribute to your work ethic, level of commitment and responsibility. Thanks again for all your help.

I am writing this letter to highly recommend Jon Okun as a mortgage consultant. I was expecting the process of acquiring a mortgage to be completely overwhelming, however Jon and his company made the process extremely smooth. Jon was so professional and easy to work with from the very beginning up until closing. I am a first time home buyer and it was such a pleasure to work with someone who was willing to take the extra time to explain all the details and walk me through the process step by step.

I would highly recommend Jon Okun to anyone who is in the process of buying a new home. I could not have been more satisfied with my experience!

Jon Okun truly did an unbelievable job in serving buyer clients of mine this past month. It was my first time using Jon since he has been in the office and he certainly met and exceeded my expectations in terms of competitiveness, constant communication and timeliness. More importantly, he made Mr. and Mrs. Home Buyer (1st time home buyers) comfortable, informed and happy throughout the process.

Mr. Buyer (a detailed minded engineer) probably shopped 6-7 different lenders before he settled on going with Jon (I’m glad he didn’t shop agents like he shopped lenders because you wouldn’t be reading this right now). Jon answered every question he asked, probably 100+ before everything was finalized and did so in a patient manner.

I was extremely glad my buyers went with Jon on this transaction. Made my job much easier and certainly made me look great in the eyes of my buyer.

Thanks Jon!

After working with Jon Okun for my first mortgage and then a refinance, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. He is knowledgeable, professional, very responsive, and makes you feel at ease no matter how many questions you may have. His advice and guidance is invaluable.

My wife and I dealt with Jon Okun when buying our first home in 2007. He was extremely helpful every step of the way, always taking the time to explain stuff to us "newbies". Since then, various questions have come up and without fail Jon has helped us find an answer. He's been a pleasure to work with and we would refer him to anyone that needed help with their mortgage.

I want to thank you for the outstanding job that you did in handling my re-finance request. You presented reasonable options that enabled me to make a quick decision on what to do. And, most important to me, you helped me to consider paying off my mortgage in nine years.
You handled the paper work in such a way that it did not become a burden for me. I really appreciate that.
I was delighted when you pointed out to me that I was paying too much for homeowners insurance. I never paid much attention to the policy that I had. And I did not pick up on what was listed in the estimated monthly cost of the escrow items. You have saved me a lot of money by suggesting that I change insurance companies. A BIG thank you for that!
It was a pleasure working with you, Jon (Okun).

I want to thank you and your company for the wonderful service that was provided to us during the closing of our new home. It was a pleasure doing business with you, moreover, you made the process from beginning through closing, and easy one thanks to your organization. The time, effort and personal attention was amazing. I also want to take the time to thank you for answering all our questions, both email and by phone, while ensuring that we were in possession of all the required documentation that was essential for a smooth transaction.

I look forward to working with you again in the future and building a long-term relationship.

I would like to share my experience in working with Jon Okun as my lender. I purchased my first condo this past month and found Jon to be extremely helpful, thorough and timely in his responses. He had absolutely no problem responding to and walking me through questions, as a first time homebuyer, naturally has. What I especially appreciated was something Jon did for me, and no other lender had. he sad down and mapped down multiple scenarios in figuring out what would be my price point. I have recommended Jon to my colleagues that are considering purchasing a new home. Thank you!

I want to share with you and the office our experience with Jon Okun of Prosperity Home Mortgage. Emily had been anxious to purchase a home and wanted to take advantage of the federal tax credit being offered by ratifying a contract by April 30th and closing by June 30th. She and her fiancé have a very close friend in the mortgage business and were working with him during their search. They found a perfect home on April 30th, had their friend’s letter that qualified them for an FHA loan and got the contract ratified that evening. However, during the financing contingency period, they had a question that their lender was not able to answer, so Emily reached out to Jon and found that he could offer them an amazing rate of 3.25% with 5% down. They began working with Jon to get their financing and to get to closing before June 1st. They closed yesterday (5/26)! Jon helped these very nervous first time home buyers through the process by getting them an excellent rate, in a very tight time frame and by keeping them informed and calm. Jon gave wonderful attention to detail and was so capable of dealing with all the bumps in the road that seem to always come up during a transaction. Emily and I could not be more pleased. We will highly recommend Jon to our clients and to our fellow agents. A job very well done!

Having served the Washington DC metropolitan area as a top Realtor for the past 32 years. I have both met and worked with more than my share of loan officers. It is extremely important that my clients receive the best service, commitment and rate programs available when I recommend a lender to them. I have now worked with Jonathan Okun on several transactions and find him to be at the very top of his profession in terms of his skill sets, communication with clients and follow through with the loan application and approval process. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking both exceptional loan terms and the best in professional service.

Jon Okun was an extremely helpful mortgage officer. He worked with me on determining the best time to lock in my interest rate. Jon also researched deeply into the intricacies of my condo building, guiding me away from another mortgage company which did not have the necessary abilities to provide my mortgage.

We were absolutely blown away by the service we received from Jonathan Okun and his staff. His attention to detail and willingness to walk us through the process was exceptional. In the end, Jonathan made the transaction incredibly smooth and even enjoyable. To sum up the experience I would use three words: Professional, seamless and efficient.

As a sales manager of a large development, there is no greater feeling than closing a deal, and no worse fear than that deal falling apart because the lender doesn’t have the knowledge or personal skills to carry it to its conclusion. I cannot tell you how many times Jon Okun has saved a deal from collapsing.

I refer my clients to Jon who I know will not only give them wonderful service and honest answers, but also put them at ease. He has a way about him that makes people feel like they are sitting down with an old friend, a quality that makes buyers want to come back to him when they are refinancing.

In short, Jon Okun is a terrific loan officer with whom my associates and I hope to be working with for many years.

I have had the pleasure of working with Jon Okun of Prosperity Home Mortgage over the last several years. I originally met him when I was working at Long & Foster’s Friendship Heights office at which point I had been in the business for nearly 10 years.

Jon recognized the fact that I had existing relationships with other loan officers and promised to earn my business. I warned him that I had several disastrous experiences in the past with in house loan officers and that I would be a very hard sell. He responded that he liked challenges.

He kept after me, so I began sending Jon clients that came with less than perfect situations/needs when my regular lender contacts could not provide financing. The first few he was unable to help, but then he was able to help a previous client of mine that was moving back to the area to take a job that had a start date several months out. All of my other lenders told my client that they could not do a loan for him, but Jon said he could, and he did.

What struck me the most during that transaction was how Jon anticipated potential challenges and pitfalls, and rather than wait to get pushback (or worse a rejection) from the underwriter, he was constantly calling the underwriter to outline the problem in order to get them to on board to offer a solution.

Since that time, I have had numerous clients use Jon all of whom have been extremely satisfied. His rates and fees are always competitive, and his service is second to none.

In addition, I have used Jon to refinance my own properties on multiple occasions. One of those properties is a condominium that does not meet Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac guidelines. I am not sure how, but he has refinanced that property twice in the last 3 years when no one else was able to allowing me to save tens of thousands of dollars.

I left Long & Foster in 2012 to open my own brokerage, and I continue to highly recommend Jon Okun to all of my clients.

I have been using Jon Okun for over a year. In that time, I have found Jon to be very focused on customer service. He is always available to answer a question, help a client, and provide competitive rates. His loans are ready to go at least two days ahead of closing giving a sense of comfort to the buyer and the seller that the closing will take place as expected. I can highly recommend him.

I can honestly say that I am 110% satisfied with the level of service Jonathan provided me. Not only was he patient and informative through the entire process. Jon made purchasing my first home a painless and comforting experience. There is no question as to where I will be going for any future loans. Hands down....Jon is the guy to get it done.

Jon Okun was recommended to us by our real estate agent for the purchase of our house in Nov. of 2007. Since then he has helped us with a refinance of the same residence last year, a transaction in which Jon took the initiative to run our numbers and present the options to us. In both of these dealings Jon has been responsive, friendly, and very efficient in getting our requests taken care of. He has also proven to be extremely knowledgeable and has provided sound advice with regards to the options available to us for each of our transactions. Jon has been great to work with and my wife and I have recommended him to several of our friends (and will continue to do so) for their mortgage needs.

I recently purchased a condo at the West Village of Shirlington. I was quite nervous about the process since this was my first home buying experience, without a realtor agent, and used a VA loan that came attached with additional stipulations and requirements. But my experience working with Jon Okun made the entire process, from the initial loan application to the final settlement, as painless as it could be. Jon was not only informative, but responsive and responsible in making sure the process flowed seamlessly; it was truly a pleasure working with Jon as my loan officer. There are plenty of lenders and loan officers out there in the market, but Jon is the kind of guy you want to work with again in the future. I would definitely use him again for my next purchase. If you are a veteran and/or a first time home buyer like me, feel free to contact me with any questions about working with Jon. Good luck with your home shopping.
