Meet Jim

Over the years, I've worked with thousands of homeowners to purchase or refinance their homes, investment properties or vacation homes.

I am a mortgage banker and the area manager of Bell Bank Mortgage's Burnsville office. I’ve been with Bell since 2008 and in the mortgage business since 1985.

I have the ability to find your best loan options with multiple lenders, ensuring that you always get the best rate and program to suit your specific needs. I would love the opportunity to meet with you, understand what you're looking for, explain your options, answer your questions, and earn both your trust and your business.

How I Work

I love to work with customers face to face, but I also know that's not always convenient or possible. I'll gather the information I need from you to help you choose your best financing option, and then I'll go to work to make it happen. 

From our first meeting or application, until we sit at the closing table, I'll keep you informed about the process and answer any questions you may have. My goal is to exceed your expectations.

Thank you for you and your team's hard work in bringing us to the end zone. The closing went smoothly … almost too smoothly!
Jon Theis
