  • Working with Jon and his team was a pleasure. He was able to work with me in my very busy schedule and get us refinanced in a very speedy time frame. There was little to no delays in the process. He was great at keeping me updated and answering all my questions in a timely manner. I would recommend him to anyone looking to go through a refinance. A+ team.
    Thank you Jon, Allie, and Mindy you guys are great.

  • There are not enough words to express what a great experience we had with our recent re-finance. Jon walked us through each step, and even laughed with me as we cried because the VA was so slow in getting our paperwork to us. He went above and beyond, and was able to extend our rate lock so we could close with the rate we had. Excellent service!

  • Jon and his staff were terrific! The refi wasn’t fast, but it was pretty painless AND they went the extra mile for us. We had no idea that there was an erroneous foreclosure on our record (we had BOUGHT a foreclosed property, not been foreclosed upon), but they found it, researched it, and corrected it! The terms of our loan were very good, and they kept us apprised of the status at every stage. They were wonderful!

  • Ask for Jon by name — he’s Awesome to work with!  Jon was prompt, punctual, polite and friendly. He also did a great job communicating, keeping me informed every step of the way as my application made its way through the process. He was also kind enough to provide me his cell phone, and encouraged me to call him after hours if I had any questions (which I often did).  I also appreciate the fact that Jon kept his promises – if he made a commitment to call me back, or get something for me, he did what he said he was going to do. Jon also worked to get the refinance closed quickly – I think when all was said and done, it closed in three weeks.  I also VERY much appreciate the great rate Jon got me. I shopped the loan around before coming to Peoples Bank, and not only did you guys have the most competitive rates, you also had the lowest fees. All of which was very, very welcome.  I live in Boston, my re-fi property was in Arizona, and Jon is in Indiana, but the service he gave was so awesome, you could easily believe he was your next door neighbor.  Thanks Jon!!

  • Jon was very knowledgeable in helping me refinance my house. He did all of the work and the only thing I had to do was sign, which made my life much easier. I had spoken with other lenders about my refinance, but Jon was by far the best and I am more than happy with his services. A true professional!

  • Just wanted to thank you for all of your help with our refinancing. I was very tentative going into the process but Peoples Bank made it so easy and much less intimidating that I was expecting. It was so easy to work with Peoples and I appreciate their professionalism. I will certainly recommend Peoples Bank to anyone I know who is looking for mortgage services. We are thrilled with our new rate and the closing went great.

    Thank you so much!

  • I am a retired widow and have gone through buying and refinancing several different homes during my lifetime, and I can assure you it usually has not been a pleasure dealing with the mortgage banker or their staff. I can honestly say that Jon Watkins and all his staff made the current refinance on my home easy and painless. They were courteous, professional and very helpful during the entire process. I would certainly recommend Peoples Bank to all of my acquaintances and especially Jon and his team. Thanks again for assisting me in this tedious task, I truly appreciate all the effort and time that everyone put into making this easier for me.
