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 is a pleasure to work with. Knowledgeable and professional, personable and efficient. He explained the pros and cons associated with different mortgage refinancing options which allowed us to make the best choice for our financial goals. Shawn has not only saved us money. He has earned our trust.

    Shawn is an excellent loan officer to work with. He answered any questions I had thoroughly, and kept me in the loop of everything happening in the backgrounds. He explained clearly what items were needed from me, and took initiative to reach out to parties on my behalf so the homebuying process could go smoother. Thanks in large part to Shawn, we were able to close ahead of what we had planned. I look forward to working with Shawn in the future.

The average rate on 30-year, fixed-rate loans…
