Jack Vaughan – Houston Agent Magazine
When buying his first home, Jack Vaughan went through the buying and lending process on his own, an experience he doesn’t want to repeat. “Communication was terrible and I was given incorrect information which nearly ruined the deal,” Vaughan recalled. “Working in an industry where every day is different and putting people in homes is very rewarding.” Currently vice president of mortgages at Guaranteed Rate Affinity, Vaughan began his career in hotel management and later worked in the restaurant industry. “What I loved about working in the hospitality industry was the constant interaction with people,” he admits. It was 21 years ago.
Vaughan and his team are focused on generating business and working to provide smooth loan transactions. During his meetings with potential clients, he takes the time to listen to their needs in order to offer them the best options. “Real estate and mortgage business require a sense of urgency,” he stresses. “With limited housing inventories for many years now, being on top of my game at all times is a must.”
Described as having a professional business style, Vaughan also likes to have fun in the mix. “The process can be quite stressful and I want to reassure my clients,” he explains. While open communication and transparency are key, it’s also important to stay comfortable with ever-changing lending guidelines, Vaughan says. “I never promise too much what I can’t deliver,” he insists. “I’m brutally honest and I don’t sugarcoat anything.”
Over the past year, Vaughan has achieved a personal loan volume goal and achieved President’s Club status within the company. In his spare time, he enjoys golfing and traveling with his family.
