About John

John Weller’s mortgage career has included funding more than 5,100 loans from Florida to California, the bulk of those to help Coloradoans achieve their housing dreams. As a top producer for Denver-based MegaStar Financial Corp. since 2001, John has earned the distinction of being one of the top loan officers in Colorado and the nation. Since 1998 John has ranked as one of the top 200 loan originators in the U.S. as published in Mortgage Originator Magazine and the Scotsman’s Guide; two of the most respected trade journals in the mortgage industry. Most recently, John was honored as a 2010 top 100 loan originator in America by Scotsman Guide. He was also recognized as a Five Star Mortgage professional in 5280 Magazine for scoring highest in a customer satisfaction survey by recent homebuyers and other industry experts. While Weller enjoys the accolades of the media and industry awards, his true focus is on the families that he serves.

“I know it seems extraordinary that I’m credited with over 5000 closed loans, but my real secret is that all those loans were to only about 800 different families. The majority of the clients I work with every day are either repeat customers or they are relatives or close personal friends of my past clients. I’m committed not only to closing each loan cost effectively and on time, but also to truly understanding my clients and their needs and concerns and tailoring mortgage solutions to meet those needs. The mortgage business can tend to be very impersonal with credit scores, property values, debt-to-income ratios etc., but the bottom line is that it’s really about a family and their most important investment – their home!” John M. Weller

John owes much of his success to being part of one of the most respected and trusted mortgage companies in America, Megastar Financial Corp. With John’s help, MegaStar Financial Corp. has become the Gold Standard in the mortgage industry. John joined Megastar shortly after it was founded by Anita Padilla-Fitzgerald. Megastar and its CEO have been featured on Fox National Business News, The Denver Post, and multiple local news agencies for having a reputation for integrity, quality and commitment to customers. The Better Business Bureau awarded Megastar their prestigious “Gold Star Award” for seven straight years. In 2010, Ernst and Young awarded Megastar’s CEO the Entrepreneur of the Year Award in the Financial Service Category for the Rocky Mountain region. In addition, John was featured by CBS News 4 with regard to first time homebuyer initiatives and the real estate stimulus.

John began his banking career at the ripe old age of 17 as part of his high school Junior Achievement program. The sponsor for his class was United Bank of Lakewood, the executives were so impressed with John, they hired him as a bank teller as a junior in high school. John worked for the bank for several years during summers, holidays and after school while obtaining his education from the Colorado School of Mines, Colorado University and finally the American Institute of Banking. Since then, John has continued to grow and develop his education by participating in industry licensing, training and certification programs. His training has included the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System certification, a Certified Mortgage Planner designation, Loan Officer Productivity Training, certification by the Colorado Housing Finance Authority to originate CHFA and MCC loans, and many other seminars and lectures pertinent to our changing industry and economy.

“My mission in life is to continually grow and develop so I can deliver world class service and create clients for life.” John M. Weller
