Kyle Jessop, Vice President and Branch Manager
Over the last 20 years I have been blessed with the opportunity and the ability to help thousands of people achieve their dreams, walking them through what may be the biggest financial commitment they’ll ever make. I am grateful that many of my clients have become dear friends, and I consider those relationships my biggest personal achievement in the mortgage industry.
I was born and raised in Vienna, Virginia and stayed in the Commonwealth to earn a Bachelor’s of Science in Marketing from Virginia Tech in 1985. After eight years with IBM (the last four as a systems engineer), I realized that I was better suited for the mortgage industry. Relatively few industries play such a large part in the success of an individual or a family as does this industry. I do not take lightly the opportunity to guide families through the often complex mortgage process, and I am glad to make myself available seven days a week to answer questions and otherwise take care of my clients’ concerns.
It all boils down to this: my clients’ needs come ahead of my wallet. Whether educating a first time home buyer, recommending the best program for a relocating military service member or DHS employee (even if it is with their credit union), or showing a trusting client why refinancing does not make sense, my clients’ needs always win out. It may be unconventional, and it is certainly not taught in any “how to sell” books, but it is the right thing to do and it works. The classic holiday film, Miracle on 34th Street, speaks to me for this reason – the spirit of giving, even when it seems counterintuitive, and honoring my faith at the same time, rolled into one process!
