About

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.

This was my first home purchase and I was very nervous. Shawn explained the process at length and expeditiously returned my calls and text. He was very attentive and personable. He really enjoys what he does and it shows, it's not just a job but a passion. I would recommend his services to family and friends, as a matter of fact I just referred a friend to Shawn.This was my first home purchase and I was very nervous.

As first-time homebuyers, we had no idea where to begin, what was required, and how intensive the process is. Luckily for us, we found Shawn. I can say that he is extremely knowledgable and effective, having guided us through out the entire process from pre-approval to close. Shawn landed us a great loan and interest rate, giving us a lot of confidence going into our settlement. We would absolutely recommend Shawn to anyone looking to purchase a home.As first-time homebuyers, we had no idea where to begin, what was required, and how intensive the process is.

Shawn and his team were quick to respond and explain documents that as a new home buyer I didn't necessarily understand.

During my experience with purchasing a new home. Mr Barsness made the process go alot smoother than I ever expected with hearing horrifying stories for the home buying process. All questions were answered in an easier way to understand. Even questions that I never thought to ask were mentioned. Everyone in a while I would try to contact him to ask a question and all I could get was a voice mail. And it took a while for him to response a usually if not the same day I would hear something by the following evening. My overall experience with Mr. Shawn Barsness and Ms. Knox was excellent and I have recommended him to other potential buyers.During my experience with purchasing a new home.

We can't speak highly enough of Shawn Barsness. He took to the time to listen to our needs when other mortgage companies refused due to our bankruptcy. He was able to get us a mortgage and we are proud to say we are new home owners! He even came to us to meet and the best thing was after getting our information, he showed us several options. We would definitely recommend Shawn to anyone who wants a professional that will look out for your best interest.We can't speak highly enough of Shawn Barsness.

If I had used someone else I would still be living at my friends. Shawn never gave up and he just kept pushing thru some legal matters I had that needed to be corrected. He did what most would have given-up on. Besides being the best at what he does he is also a good friend to have and I'm glad to have found him. It's not every day you encounter a business partner that you want to keep in touch with. I have also enjoyed his office staff especially Rachael. I will encourage anyone I know to use Shawn as I have already and they were able to close before me and they were very excited to work with such a professional. My close friends hope to use Shawn as well when they sell their home. I love my new home and Shawn Barsness made it possible.
