This is the second time I have dealt with Scott. In each instance he has shown outstanding professionalism and integrity. He is knowledgeable, timely and treats everyone with utmost respect. It is very difficult to find someone today with the outstanding characteristics he displays to his customers. In short, he does what
he says he’s going to do when he says he’s going to do it. It is a pleasure to do business with and a pleasure to know him. I highly recommend Scott Johnson.

Scott is the right choice when you need honesty and someone that understands a reverse mtg or refinance. I have used him for both and it made a big difference since he understands the process.

I cannot say enough great things about Scott Johnson. Mine was a difficult case...I had little hope because I was told "No" so many times. My income is low and my ability to pay my monthly expenses slowly faded over the years. Scott was able to dig in and help. He answers his phone (!!!!) and is patient. He got a reverse mortgage for me and I am now able to breathe! It was kind of a miracle. Thanks, Scott.

Scott is very caring and personable . I was paying two mortgages that were disrupting my life. He suggested a reverse mortgage and in a very short time, I was mortgage free. I am so grateful that I met him. I am now able to enjoy the rest of my life.

My loan was in complete disarray from a different lender. Scott took me on and closed in 3 weeks. The difference between knowing what to do and not knowing. He and Brynn treated me with patience and respect. If you don't have a lender give them a try. Glad I did.

Retired home owner age 77 needing additional income for support.
I made a decision to pursue A Reverse Mortgage. After a search thru Web sites I received two proposals. One from Atlanta and one from another location. I wanted
to work with some one local (Arizona) so I continued a search and selected
Open Mortgage because it had a 623 area code. Scott Johnson contacted me and prepared a written proposal. This was quickly done a couple of days. We made
an appointment. Scott reviewed my other proposals. He was thorough in his explanations
and I decided to go with Scott and Open Mortgage and get the Reverse Mortgage
Scott every step of the process in a professional manner clearly explaining every
step in the process. Though there was far too paperwork, the process went very
well. Scott was always on time with every phase thru to final signing.
Never at any time was I uncomfortable with what Scott said or told me to do.

I would recommend Scott Johnson to anyone needing a Reverse Mortgage

Owners of the home now under reverse mortgage

I was initially leery of the issue of reverse mortgages. As i heard and read more, I became more sure that was the way for us to go.
After we were introduced to you, we felt more comfortable with the program. Following the mandatory lesson on reverse mortgages, we were then ready to commit.
You provided recommendations on preparing our home for the appraisal. We followed your tips, had the home appraised and finally got the financial info on our package which was a pleasant surprise.
Scott:, throughout the entire time, from first meeting to final paperwork, your demeanor was very professional and ethical, yet you were always friendly and helpful. We could not
have asked for anyone better to handle our reverse mortgage package. if you are ever working with anyone who would like a conversation with us about our feelings, please let us know. We would very willingly do so, as we know you'd treat them the same as you treated us... First Class

Scott Johnson was with us every step of the way until the final papers were signed. We needed a lot of handholding. The whole process was time consuming but the end results were worth it. Thank you Scott

It is with great pleasure that I submit this recommendation. Without Scott's help I would never have been able to buy my home.

Scott is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the mortgage business. When my first mortgage company gave up saying that my loan was too complicated, Scott stepped in and said, "I can do this!" And he did... There were many times that I felt my loan would never go through, but Scott refused to give up. Whether it meant writing another letter of explanation, or making a strategic phone call, he hung on with a bulldog like tenacity, refusing to take no for an answer. For almost 5 months we talked daily working to resolve my problems. Scott was always cheerful and upbeat, never refusing my calls and always encouraging me. He is a professional in every sense of the word.

Scott is a very nice person as well as very competent and helpful. He will answer all questions you may have and always get back to you in a timely manner. He is a professional and puts you at ease upon meeting him. I recommend him highly.
