Who is John Schutze?


My Purpose: 

Empower my clients to make confident mortgage decisions with a clear presentation of the available mortgage options and valuable financial insight.

Before becoming a Mortgage Originator in 2002, I was a financial adviser specializing in personal financial planning. I began to focus on helping my clients manage their mortgages, and then fully transitioned to the mortgage profession in 2002.

Communication is the key to a successful and satisfying home-buying experience. My team is proactive and we value consistent and timely communication between all parties throughout the entire loan process. Each interaction, whether it’s with a client, an associate or a friend, is an opportunity to leave a positive impression on a person’s life, and ultimately, the world. My favorite quote is:

To the world you may be just one person; but to someone you may be the world.

I was born and raised here in Austin and have lived in Central Texas ever since. I graduated from Texas State University in San Marcos with a degree in finance with an emphasis in personal financial planning. In my spare time I focus on my wife and four kids. We enjoy camping, little league sports and time with friends.

I often say “I’m a husband and father first. On the side, I help folks obtain a great mortgage to match their financial goals.”

“To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world”

“To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world”
