This is My Story
Jim began working in banking in 1979 as a management trainee at First Federal Savings of Arizona where he quickly became a direct marketing and sale executive. In 1982 Jim and his wife Melodie moved to Utah where he became a Financial Services Executive for United Savings Bank where he remained until the bank was sold in the late 1990s. At that time Jim began working more directly in mortgage loan originations. In 2006 Jim became aware of Utah Mortgage Loan Corporation UMLC, and decided to become part of the loan origination staff at UMLC. Jim has remained impressed with all the advantages UMLC affords his clients. Jim says “I have remained very impressed with the quality and competency of the management team and staff at UMLC. Our company has a long history of success, and because UMLC is so well managed and resourceful, we have been able to endure and prosper in even the most difficult market conditions. Our reputation within the mortgage loan industry allows UMLC to make available to our clients the very best in professional advice and product selection. Investor Banks that buy and service mortgage loans, recognize the value of our organization and its history of success, and that affords us the best they offer in the secondary mortgage markets. UMLC helps me to help my friends and clients to become successfully. I have everything I need as a loan officer to make home buying and home financing comfortable and affordable to meet my clients short and long term goals and dreams.”
Jim has also worked extensively within the community having served numerous years as a School Community Council Chairman, as a former Affordable Housing Chair for the Utah Mortgage Lenders Association, as a Scout Master and as a volunteer working with numerous non-profit organizations that target the needs of at risk families and youth. Jim has been married for over 30 years to Melodie Lokey and together they are the parents of 5 happy and successful adult children.
“I promise that I will always work with you with your best interest in mind. Your success is my paramount consideration and my primary reason for being in the mortgage industry.”
