Marcus French, an assistant vice president with Jersey Mortgage Company, has dedicating the past twenty years of his professional career to the mortgage industry. He is respected by his peers as a leader and top producer for Jersey Mortgage Company and for the past 5 years, Marcus has been awarded to his companies President Club. Marcus accredits part of his success to the experience he gained from his previous places of employment, starting at the age of sixteen in various customer service positions, which helped him gain the knowledge in sales to build a foundation of people skills, business sense, and basic economics.
Marcus graduated with a business management degree and a minor in sports management from New Jersey City University and attributes much of his success to being a life-long learner. He values the importance of education and continually attends business seminars and training sessions in order to better serve his clientele. It is this determination that inspired his motto of, “getting the changeling deals done!” The confidence that Marcus displays is a confidence that stems from knowing that anything is possible if a person is willing to put forth the time and effort to learn the fundamentals of their craft.
Starting as a loan officer in 1998, Marcus quickly began to take on more responsibility and to move up the ranks within the company fairly fast. Today, in addition to his responsibilities as assistant vice president, he is considered a producing manager. Although it may be uncommon for an assistant vice president to personally manage every client, Marcus says that it is this amiable relationship that separates the “French Team” from all the other companies in the industry. As a small company, team members can offer higher quality assistance and follow-up services. This is evident in Marcus’s phenomenal online reviews from both realtors and clients.
Jersey Mortgage was the perfect company for Marcus. Unlike other mortgage firms, all loans are completed in-house. Marcus expressed his love for Jersey Mortgage Company (JMC) during his interview; “We may be a small unit, but we are moreover, a tight knit family. JMC is a name you can really trust, internally as an employee, and externally as a client. With our company, we stress the importance of communication and follow-up, seeing every transaction through until the end with all of our borrowers. We don’t have third party fees or hidden costs associated with our transactions. What we do have is a deep history of honor and integrity. JMC has been established since 1938 and has maintained an impeccable reputation for their clients for decades.”
In particular, Marcus enjoys working with veterans and first-time home buyers. Although he and the company deal with many different types of financing options, they specialize in jumbo and government loans such a FHA, FHA 203K, and VA, just to name a few. Marcus and his team really enjoy working with families and being able to help them make their dreams of home ownership become a reality. JMC recognizes the value of established relationships and customer dedication.
Marcus and Jersey Mortgage have close ties with the community that they actively support and participate in; local charity organizations such as Jeremy’s Heroes and Habitat for Humanity. It comes as no surprise that Marcus was nominated in 2017 for The Governor’s Excellence Award for Housing and Development, and Jersey Mortgage was ranked as one of the Top Three Institutions in New Jersey for Providing Superior First Time Home Buyer Programs to Consumers by the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency. Marcus and every other team member of Jersey Mortgage believes that “Integrity is doing the right thing when no one is looking.” Their goal is to continue showing the same level of integrity for their customers that they have proudly maintained for many years!
