James Zantingh began his mortgage career in 2014, closing 28 deals and more than $4.7 million in volume in his first year, which earned him the Rookie of the Year Award from Rock Capital Investments. He followed up that incredible start by almost tripling his business the following year, which led him to receive another award as the Most Improved Agent.

In 2016, Zantingh started building his own team and brand, Mortgage Jump. His upward trajectory has continued ever since; in 2018, he added three new agents to his team and is on track to become the top broker/broker of record in the company. “It’s important to note that James has never had an assistant or help with any of his deals,” a colleague says. “He is the application taker, appraisal orderer, compliance officer and go-to for many other agents within our brokerage.”
