Owner and broker
GO LENDER DIRECT
Long before the hype around ‘no cost’ loans, Jeff Negus’ innovation to use lender credit to help cover closing costs and impound accounts was unheard of. In 1989, Negus originated the ‘best rate/no cost’ loan program, which has now become a standard procedure for brokerage firms. He followed that up in 1996 by establishing Go Lender Direct, which has enjoyed 30% to 33% yearly growth in loan volume since the financial crisis in 2008. Negus also co-owns other companies that focus on developing online processes to further enhance mortgage processes, from disclosure to funding. A committed family man and avid surfer, Negus enjoys sharing this passion with his wife and children.
