With over two decades of expertise in both wholesale and retail mortgage industries, I have an in-depth understanding of every facet of mortgage lending. Drawing on my extensive experience, I work to tailor both mortgage and wealth-building strategies that align with a client's financial goals. 

As head of the Ultimate Lending Team and perpetual entrepreneur, Jim is dedicated to continually refining his systems and assembling top-notch teams to adhere to his mission of "making loans easy." Serving as a lifelong mortgage coach for his clients, Jim aims to be the go-to resource for individuals seeking accurate and comprehensive information to make confident decisions about homeownership.


Hailing from Dallas, Texas, Jim pursued his undergraduate education at the University of Colorado, Boulder and later the University of Texas in Austin where he graduated. He further earned a Master's in Environmental Science from the University of Montana in Missoula, showcasing his affinity for great college towns.


While deeply passionate about his profession, Jim strikes a balance by prioritizing quality time with his wife and two daughters. His love for international travel, camping in Utah's remote canyons, mountain biking, backcountry skiing, and his addictive passion for ultimate frisbee all contribute to a well-rounded lifestyle. Jim occasionally indulges in golf, but above all, he cherishes the Colorado way of life and finds fulfillment in helping others embrace it too. It truly is the best!

My experience working with Jim has been exceptional. His system made the entire process convenient and easy to understand. This was a HUGE benefit for me as first time home buyer. I couldn't be happier and I highly recommend him for any/all of your mortgage needs.

Working with Jim and his team was a great experience. I was comfortable working with a fellow Frisbee player. He helped us every step of the way and has continued to provide support for us when needed. From pre-approval to closing, he was available to answer any questions we had and presented information we hadn't considered. We couldn't be happier with our new home and almost as important, our low mortgage rate! We refinanced with Jim when rates dropped. I would recommend Jim to anyone looking to purchase a home or refinance their existing home. Thanks again Jim!

Jim and his team were so helpful and responsive through my home buying process. As a first time buyer, I had no idea what I was doing, but Jim helped us every step of the way. Highly recommend him!

Jim, Mike and the Megastar team were great to work with throughout the homebuying process! Even with some unique hiccups along the way, they were helpful and communicative in helping to figure out how to get everything done in time for all the milestones and deadlines. :)

Top people and professionals. I have worked with the Ultimate Lending team on two home purchases (one pretty complicated) and one refi. I recommend them to everybody looking for a professional and thoughtful mortgage lender.

The team at Ultimate lending has now helped me with two mortgages and both were incredibly smooth (even with complex finances and multiple party mortgages). Both my loans closed on time and never felt rushed or stressed, and one had to be put together in a couple weeks during the holidays. Part of this is probably due to the unique circumstance of sharing an office with their underwriters, allowing clear, personal communication throughout the process. I feel great about the options that Jim shopped for and, after doing my own research, discovered that he was very thorough in finding the best available interest rates. I'd recommend getting your mortgage in place before picking a house so that you can come to the bargaining table with money already spoken for. I'd highly recommend Ultimate lending and I intend to use them again if I ever buy another property or house.
