John was great to work with when we needed a mortgage for a home purchase this past fall. He was able to pull everything together that we needed, made sure we understood what was happened and had our best interest in mind through the whole process. I couldn’t be happier with the service he was able to provide and will continue to recommend him to anyone looking for a mortgage broker.” ~ Tom Jankiewicz (5 star review on Google Reviews)

John worked tirelessly with my wife and me, to get the best rates and mortgage products that suited our needs and wants. He was extremely communicative throughout the entire house buying process and immensely knowledgeable on rates, financing products, market dynamics and economics. He is vested in his clients and goes above and beyond to deal with the inevitable hiccups that dog the home buying process! As a veteran home buyer and investor, It did not take me long to be comfortable with John. He is a consummate professional, intellectually agile and very trustworthy. We would highly recommend him to all our friends and neighbors.” ~ Gerry Holmes (5 star review on Google Reviews)

“My husband and I were moving to the CT area due to my job and I found John’s information on Google. From Day 1 he was very responsive and provided a lot of information. John has great connections in the area and his recommendations really saved me some money in the long run, specifically my attorney fees and insurance needed. This was our first time buying a home and as someone who understands/learns visually, it was overwhelming sometimes comprehending the information that John was sharing due to the speed of his pace and explaining things over the phone. Other than that, I had a great experience with John and should my husband and I look to move again in the area I absolutely will be going back to Burke Mortgage!” ~ Gloria Owens (posted on Google Reviews)

John is extremely knowledgeable and walked us through the entire mortgage process from initial planning to closing. He was always available to answer questions is extremely friendly and honest. We couldn’t have asked for a better mortgage consultant. John is the best! Update: John recently reached out to help us refinance when rates dropped. Not only did he get us into our dream house, he also helped us through a refinance. John continues to look out for his customers, even after you close! Thanks!

Update May 2020: John helped us refinance through the COVID-19 pandemic and got everything done for us on time! Once again he did a great job advocating FOR us and getting us what we needed. Thanks John! – Matthew Rood (Posted on Google Reviews)

Not only does John understand how to secure the best loan, he is an outstanding “people person”. John played and instrumental role is assisting my wife and I when we bought our home. In addition, he was there for us when we wanted to refinance in order to consolidate bills. I would recommend John to anyone and know for a fact that other friends who have done business with John are just as satisfied as I am!

He was there for me and did not mind explaining things so that I could understand; he treated me more like a friend than a customer….. .He is the best and went out of his way to get the job done . With John’s help this was the easiest closing I ever had! Tracey Brown Office Manager Branford, CT John You are a great friend.

I thought that purchasing our first home would be very stressful. Not the case with John at Burke Mortgage. He is an expert at what he does. He got us the best rate and program to meet our needs and treated us like we were his friends, looking out for our best interests. I will recommend John to anyone who is looking to buy or refinance. Thanks to you John we are enjoying our new home!

Lisa G, Statistician in CT

I knew that with rates historically low, it was time to refinance. I went with Burke Mortgage, and it was a great decision. John took the time to walk me through all my options. At the end of the day, I refinanced my fixed thirty year mortgage to a fixed fifteen year mortgage. It made great financial sense, and John patiently answered all my questions. I would not hesitate to recommend John to my friends. In fact, I already have!

Matt F. VP Sales in CT

John was great to work with in refinancing our mortgage. It was nice to feel that someone was on our side, and not just out to make a deal. Thank you for all of your help, hard work and finding us the perfect mortgage!
