About Shawn

Shawn “The Mortgage Ace” Barsness has worked in the industry for over 12 years. During his tenure he has closed thousands of loans and even owned a mortgage brokerage for seven years. As a driven, committed, diligent, and ambitious individual, he views his primary role as helping his clients integrate their selected mortgage loans into their long-term and short-term financial and investment goals, as well as obtaining their payment equity and cash flow objectives.

With experience that extends to all areas of loan origination, processing, underwriting, approving and closing loans, Shawn has learned that success comes from staying organized, leveraging technology, integrating processes, staying focused on daily activity, and a maintaining commitment to learn. As Zig Zigler says, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.”

Shawn received a Master’s degree in business finance with a concentration in personal financial planning from Winthrop University and received advanced training in tax, investing, insurance, and real estate law.

    Shawn made himself available 24x7; he was patient, professional, and made refinancing very easy. I do intend to use him again very quickly to refinance my mother's house.

    This was our third transaction with Shawn and it was just as seamless as the first two. Shawn is the absolute best and his team (Rochelle and Michelle) is just as wonderful. We will NEVER do a transaction that doesn't include Shawn. If you are thinking about buying or refi'ing, believe me when I say you're doing a disservice to yourself if you don't reach out to Shawn today.
