We are so appreciative to have worked with JD and his team as long as we have been Realtors, and will continue to do so. This team has tons of experience and is always striving to do right by the customer, which is why they are on our “preferred lenders list”! Thank you guys for making us Realtors look good.

Shelby Reading of Coldwell Banker Select

J.D. and his team are great to work with! I highly recommend them!

Tanner and Alysia Robb

This team was amazing! They went out of their way to make this process very easy. I have a 10 month old and they were very understanding with getting everything done around my child and my husbands job as a teacher and a coach. I highly suggest that everyone use this team! Very family friendly and easy to work with!

The Stephenson Family

Great team of professionals. They took great care of our family. I recommend JD and the team to all those who are looking for a lender.

Tim Nichol of Capital Roofing

Great company! JD and his team helped me get in to my new home. Can’t say enough good things about them. They made the process so easy and helped me understand everything that I had questions about. Buying a home is a big step for anybody. You should definitely consider his team when taking that big step, as they have the best rates in the industry. They made my experience a very comfortable experience.

Janelle Brammer of Coldwell Banker Select

We so appreciate JD Dorris and Courtney Vanlandingham for helping our clients with their mortgage needs!

JD is the best at what he does. He makes the transaction seem effortless when it’s certainly not as easy as it seems.

Tracie Austin

Simply fantastic people to work with! The Team treats you like Royalty, is patient and caring while personally attending to your every need. This is how every business should be ran.

Sonia M.

This was the purchase of our second home utilizing my husband's VA benefit. For those who are unaware, this causes some additional work. Another lender tried to steer us towards a conventional loan when we clearly indicated we wished to use my husband's VA benefit. JD and his team made the entire transaction seamless. Their service went above and beyond anything I could have asked for. Thanks so much!


Jared L.

My experience with JD and his team was great because I got answers in a timely manner, they were always there to explain things to me when needed, and they walked me through every step of the process.

We had a few difficult situations arise, James was right on top of it and got everything figured out in a timely manner. James is very friendly and pleasant to speak with, and very knowledgeable about his job. He will work his tail off to help get what you need.

We felt like things were being handled and never had to worry if things were progressing on schedule. Everyone was very friendly and made it feel more like friends helping you out instead of a large company.

Cathy D.

From the beginning we were pleased with how everyone was friendly and very open to answering our questions and making us feel right at home. We know that everyone likes to shop for the lowest rate, and yes, we received a great rate, but we realized that what we were getting from this team was personal service and without a doubt we knew they would take care of us from the time we first met them right up until making until our final payment.

Billy G.

Great guy and excellent representative of his products and services.

I would highly recommend Mr. Dorris to anyone in need of mortgage financing.

Joshua G.

Our family has been greatly blessed by the incredible work ethic of JD and his team twice now.

Wherever you are-you won’t regret being on the receiving end of the highest level of customer service.

Courtney L.

JD was always quick and friendly. We had excellent service working with him! Would definitely recommend him to anyone.

I met JD and Courtney in a business meeting and their commitment to real estate agents to get their clients qualified for a home was impressive. I used JD on the very first transaction as a real estate agent; since, I have sent many clients to the JD Dorris Team for their home loans and never have any of us been disappointed! If you want a lender who will be upfront, sincere, and give you that good ole fashion customer service at a professional level, call the JD Dorris Team. They are great!

JD and his team went above and beyond the ordinary level of service to make sure that everything went smoothly for us. I have never had a banker contact me over a weekend before to check in and see if we had any questions or concerns! The level of attention we received gave us the "small business" feel, but the knowledge and comfort of having a bank that will work with us for the whole life of the loan.
