Zack Bobo - Realtor

Working with The Mortgage Source team was a great experience. We could not have been more pleased. John, Chelsea and Shane worked to make our refinance run very smoothly. They were prompt, professional,and kept us informed at every step, including explaining things as the process went along. I would definitely recommend them. There is also a good feeling having them so close by, I love working with local companies. The service felt very personal, while being professional. Thanks guys!

Mike and Wanda Cornelius

The Mortage source has, once again, made the process of refinancing iur home so easy and stress free. John and his team are nothing but professional including there up to the minute updates on the status of mortage processing. They are the only place we will use in the future.

Brian F Cason

John and Ginny have made the entire loan process a pain free experience. Both worked with us to get the best deal ever and did this in the most professional way possible. Both were extremely helpful with any and all questions we had which made this a very enjoyable experience. Great company with very knowledgeable staff whom are very friendly. Thanks John and Ginny!!


Great organization! We were totally pleased and appreciative of the great work from everyone on the staff (Shout out to Ginny!). Very professional and helpful, from start to finish!


We are living a completely new world with the impact of COVID-19. Nothing is what it was. What should have been a very straight forward loan process became unpredictable and precarious during these times. Lenders and banks have a quickly changing landscape and things have become difficult and hard to predict. Mortgage source was able to keep me informed and when it was finally time to close, they were able to navigate this rough environment and get my loan funded and closed in a short time. It was not an easy process, but they stuck with it and got it done. I don’t know if anything would have happened should I have stayed with another company. They get things done. 

Dan G

John Kennedy and his staff were awesome! He and Virginia were always available and helpful in answering our questions. There are very few companies like this so if anyone is in need of these services, look to John and his wonderful team. Thank you for all your help!!

Linda Heath

John and Ginny made the refinance process easy and flawless!

Kevin McDonald

John Kennedy and Virginia were incredible!! They made the whole process seamless. They communicated throughout the whole closing. They were there to answer any questions for us by email or by phone (sometimes almost instantaneously). Not once did I feel out of the loop. I don’t know if it was John or me that got us an above and beyond interest rate, but I am not complaining. They made home buying a stress free experience.

Thank you Mortgage Source!!

David Weiss

ohn and Virginia were always answered our call, and made things super simple and easy for our home loan. We really appreciated them walking us through the entire process and were really lucky to have chosen them.

John Massey

John and his team were top notch in our closing. There is no one with BETTER rates than the Mortgage Source LLC. His office was diligent in making sure we had everything we needed before closing. He sent an agent of his behalf to the closing with a note saying "Welcome Home". Great service from the entire team. Thanks John for our NEW home with FANTASTIC RATES.

The Bachman's

ohn and Virginia (Ginny) were very helpful through the process of buying our house. And questions we had they were sure to answer with good detail and in a timely manor. Would recommend them to anyone who is looking to purchasing any property or house.

Jeffrey Grimmett

John and Ginny made our first time buying a home much easier. Constant updates are provided, and they are always very responsive. Thank y'all!

Kyle Bobo

This is the second time for us working with John and the staff at the Mortgage Source. The website interface is easy to use and they were super responsive and enjoyable to work with. Found us a great rate with very fast turn around times. I highly recommend!

Heidi Moore

This is our second time working with The Mortgage Source. John and Ginny helped us with some decisions, took care of all the details and made the paperwork much simpler to get together and authorize. We wouldn't have been able to go through a home refinance without them. Thanks for everything!

Mark Suit

John and Virginia were SUPER to work with. The rates John gave us were second to none. There was no other company that came close to the Mortgage Source LLC rates. Every step of the way Virginia kept us informed. The app they used was excellent to navigate. We live in Florida around 700 miles away from Jasper where our new home is located. I felt like we were right there with John. This was an excellent closing and easy to communicate with the staff at the Morgage Source LLC. If they give mortgages in Florida we will be using them. We HIGHLY recommend using this office for all your closing needs.


The best service I have eve used. Highly recommend these folfs! Very organized, efficient, and easy o work with. Highly recommended!

bruce tyler

 From the first phone call from John on an early Saturday morning we were off to the best relationship anyone can have with a mortgage company. These folks are ethical and will do everything in their power to get you the best loan that you qualify for and will do it quick and painless. All you have to do is sit back, answer the questions, supply any and all required documents and signatures and they take care of everything else. They are available at any time to answer the simplest to the most complex questions you may have. They believe in providing the best experience in the industry. John, Danielle, Jace and Ginny are true professionals and know their business. Don’t fret when you see they are located in Jasper Ga. They can handle your financing needs at any zip code, we guarantee! 


John and Ginny have been excellent to work with to help us buy our dream house. They are extremely efficient, responsive, and professional.  We highly recommend!

John and the Mortgage Source team were able to provide the best of loan rates (lower than anticipated). I'm so happy that we were able to work with John, because having him local (close to the new home and realtor) made the process work very well. Although we were 750 miles away, their communication with us was very good, our questions were always answered, and there was no disruption to the closing date. Thanks, John, and your team!

Bob & Jackie Schilling

My husband and I were very pleased with the service provided by John Kennedy and his team at The Mortgage Source.

Loren Richmond

We are a Navy retired family who have moved more than 25-times over a 29-year career. We have never been treated better than with John, Paul, and Dannielle! John speaks plain English, easily understood by lay people. He does what he says he will do and exactly when he says he will do it. It does not get any better than this!

Someone recommended John to me for my first time buying a home. John, Paula and the Mortgage Source team made this such an enjoyable experience. I was very pleased with my service from the very first phone call. I received my quotes within the first day and they followed my loan through every step of the way. If you are looking for a mortgage company that will make sure you are taken care of ... John Kennedy and The Mortgage Source is the place to go.

Steve Hill

What an easy mortgage!!! -
John and his staff not only had every detail covered, but fit it all into the time frame needed by both my wife and I and the seller- who was moving into another home and had deadlines. Everything just worked out. They kept us updated every step of the way and it was so nice that we didn't have to worry about any of it. Plus they gave us a very good rate! This was my first home purchase and it couldn't have been easier, thanks to John and his staff. I highly recommend going with John Kennedy!

Richard Turner

John and his staff are great. We went under contract with 23 days to close and they got it done with no problem. Their rates and fees beat the big bank they competed with to get my business. Money due at closing was below the estimated amount which always leaves you pleased. Use these guys with confidence.

Brandon Thomas

DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED!---The easiest by far and probably the quickest home loan I've ever received. A couple of phone calls and a few Docu-Signs and I was headed to closing.

Matt Ramsey

John and his team were spot on during the entire process. Was able to upload and veri-sign everything without having any issue. Closed at the right day, no hiccups and didn't take much of my time.

Buddy Moore

John and his team (Paula) were fantastic. They have a system where you are kept up to date throughout the purchase process so you always know what has been done and what is next. John was at our closing to see that everything went smoothly. Couldn't be happier with the experience.

Christopher Hoback

John and his team were recommended to us through our realtor. They were very good about being specific with what was needed throughout the process and they were really great about keeping us in the loop with updates. Purchasing our first home was stressful but John's team kept it simple for us - very glad to have worked with them!

Andrew & Suzanne McCanless


This was our first time buying a house, and it could not have gone smoother. John was very helpful and available throughout the whole process. I called him pretty much all throughout the day and had a lot of questions for him and he was always responsive. He was also able to get us a lower interest rate. I highly recommend using John, you will be glad you did!


John was very available, had the BEST rates, was thorough, and always very kind. This was our first home and we wouldn't have wanted to work with anyone else. We have already recommended him to several friends.

Matthew & Kelly O'Neill


John and his staff were terrific from initiation of the process through closing! They were able to find us a very low interest rate.

Rhonda Willis


Working with John and his team was such an amazing experience. They were so helpful in every aspect of the loan process. He gave us a great interest rate.

I feel very blessed and thankful this process went as smoothly as it did. Thank you John and Paula. You are both awesome.

Sheri London


John and his team of professionals were excellent when we refinanced our mortgage in 2014 and is why they were the automatic choice when we decided to buy a new house in March of this year. They are always helpful and positive when you have questions along the way!! I would recommend John and his team to anyone!!

Kevin Walker


This has been, by far, the best and easiest loan process ever. The communication was simple and effective. I have a busy schedule and travel a lot, nevertheless, all expectations were met.

Lisa Layfield


John was a pleasure to work with. My loan requirements were as expected and his office handled it completely right up to closing. Thanks for your guys help.

Matthew Davis


When I started talking to John I didn't know everything I needed to about buying my first home. As soon as I called him he had me making progress. I've always heard how hard it is to buy a house but with John and Paula it really wasn't difficult at all. He made it all easy for me and when I found the house I wanted everything just started clicking. He was a pleasure to work with. With me buying a house and co-planning a wedding at the same time I needed as little stress as possible and that's what I got with The Mortgage Source. If you're looking to buy a home the first step is calling John.

Ronnie Dunn


John and his staff were wonderful to deal with. They made our whole process such a pleasant and easy experience and kept us informed during the whole process. It was such a great feeling knowing they were there for us every step of the way.

Laura Kemp


We highly recommend! This is the second time we have used them and will never go anywhere else! We had a great experience with The Mortgage Source. Both my husband and I are self employed and John was able to get us a unbelievably low interest rate! Thank you so much!

Jessica Haynes


We have purchased a new home and refinanced an exisiting home with The Mortgage Source. John and his team took what could be a difficult process and made it extreamly easy. He is professional, yet personable, and willing to go the extra mile to ensure a smooth closing. I highly recommend John and The Mortgage Source for all your financing needs.

Amberle Godfrey


It is a great experience to work with John Kennedy. They were professional and timely and ensured there was plenty of communication for quick responses. Excellent team!

Carol Malone


I had a wonderful experience securing a loan through John's company. It was fast, efficient and friendly. I really can't say enough about how wonderful he and his colleagues are!

Heidi Beirich

John and his team helped me the whole through the purchase of my new home. Being able to comfortably afford my monthly payments was very important to me, and he provided lots of realistic information and correctly set my expectations on what i could afford and still stay within my budget. He was responsive and friendly and I could not have done this without him. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home. Thank you!

Jennifer Hillmann

We would like to take a moment to thank John and his team for their exceptional service during our recent refinance. John went the extra mile to to ensure we got the lowest rate possible. The communication was excellent throughout the process. We would use The Mortgage Source again in the future and recommend them to anyone looking to purchase or refinance. 



John and his team were able to help us after the bank said no when my wife was on workmans compensation. Throughout the entire process we we updated through his web site and he and his staff were always available by phone. Let me add we were out of state up until we closed and the closing was the most enjoyable experience we have ever had with any purchase. I would recommend this lender to everyone seeking a qualified and professional lender with a personal touch!

Vincent Ledbetter

John and his staff are very easy to do business with and very helpful during the process. John is very friendly and makes you feel like a friend. Would highly recommend him for a mortgage.

Barbara Edwards


If you are a military veteran seeking to use your hard-earned home-buyer VA financing benefit, I can only provide the highest praise and personal recommendation for Mr. Kennedy and his staff, based on the experience I had and the results I enjoyed while working through the loan approval and closing process. One word of caution: Having the paperwork in order that you will need for a VA loan application (examples: DD-214, proof of citizenship, etc.) will greatly speed up the process. Mortgage Source provides a web site you can use for secure document uploads from your computer, and gives Mr. Kennedy instant and direct access to the information once it is uploaded. This was by far the most helpful paperwork transfer feature available to me throughout the loan application and approval process, since it bypasses the timing and reliability issues associated with physical documentation transfer . Also extremely helpful: Throughout the process, Mr. Kennedy's staff kept us informed by weekly phone contact of the status of the loan approval process, and any questions we had were usually answered instantly.

Morris Arther


John and his staff were very responsive and helpful in making our purchase go smooth. Every thing was in place and explained to me if I was uncertain about specifics they talked to me to be certain that I was clear of what needed to be done. We even managed to get it together and go to act of sale a whole week early. It was a very nice experience. If we are blessed enough to find another purchase in the future we will be certain to be repeat customers. THANK YOU GUYS FOR EVERYTHING!!!!Rick & Nina

Rick and Nina Chatelain

John and his group were very helpful through the whole process of our home purchase. They worked with us every step of the way to make sure that we had everything ready for closing.

Joseph Roderick

Our application and loan approval process went smoothly and John and his staff were very helpful from start to finish. We would recommend him to others.

Earl Thomas

We recently relocated from out of state and were recommended to John by our realtor, David Johnson. John was great to work with and took all the time I needed to answer questions are explore financing options with me. He and the entire team at The Mortgage Source made a process that can be very hectic a smooth and calm experience. Thanks for all your help!



John Kennedy and his staff were excellent!Except for the initial in office contact, all correspondence was handled by text or email making this transaction smooth and seamless. Rates and closing costs were below their competition. Thank you Mortgage Source.Chuck & Cynthia Darwin

Chuck and Cynthia Darwin

Being as it were, we hadn't purchased property in quite a while, John was essential in guiding us through the federal, state, and lender requirements. In so much that our closing was seamless and completed in less than an hour. We would (and have) recommend John to any of our family and friends needing his services in the North Georgia area.Thanks John,Chuck and Dale-Elizabeth Petrishe

Chuck and Dale Petrishe

"As a first time homeowner, Mortgage Source walked me through the initial process even before I found a house. I understood what I was looking at if I purchased.  Once I did, John stayed with me until the papers were signed and even followed up with me. It was wonderful having someone I could call with the smallest question. I gained knowledge even before I chose my home. John helped me understand a process that is often scary and not fully explained. 

Regina Hawkins

I am a first-time home buyer and John and Danielle really made the home loan process easy and worry free. John was always available and helped me understand when I had questions regarding the loan and home buying in general. It was a pleasure working with the Mortgage Source!

Lucas J

Working with Mortgage Source made the seemingly arduous process of buying a home simple and enjoyable! John walked is through everything each step of the way. He was efficient, timely and responsive. Not only that, he secured a rate for us that our closing lawyer said she hadn't seen in a very long time! We couldn't be happier with the service provided. It would be a privilege to work with Mortgage Source in the future!

Jackie Coleman

My wife and I just used John to buy our new home. He worked hard to get us the best rates and the best mortgage company. We are very please and would recommend him to anyone.

Dennis Mason

John and his team made the mortgage process painless. We walked away with a great rate and the perfect product for our needs. Thanks again!

Keith Deener

Thank you, John and The Mortgage Source, for all of your help with the loan process and the buying of my new home. Buying a new home can be so stressful, but you made the process smooth and certainly easier than what I expected. From my first phone call to you all the way to the final paper signing the closing was easily accomplished. Thank you for all of your help and courteous service! I will definitely recommend John Kennedy and The Mortgage Source to any and all who need help with a loan!

Janice lewis

John has helped us with financing three different times. He is always easy to reach, fast to respond and helpful with explaining everything to us. He was also very patient in waiting for us to get all of our documents together. He's very easy to work with. 


From the very BEGINNING all the way to CLOSING; John, Danielle,


Thank you, John for all of your help in providing services for an new home loan. The process can be overwhelming, but, you were great at making the tedious details so much easier. My new home is wonderful and you and The Mortgage Source made it possible. Again, thank you!

Janice Lewis

John and Danielle are awesome. My husbamd and I relocated from Florida and hadn't owned a home in many years. We really didn't know where to start. We decided to start by seeing how much we were qualified for. We found The Mortgage Source through one of the Pickens County links. John got us started and hooked us up with an awesome realtor, Lydia. John explained exactly what we needed and encouraged us along the way. Even when things seemed to us they weren't working out fir the house we wanted. Praise God all worked out and we are now living in our dream home in the mountains. 

Lynn Johnson

My wife and I just closed on our second home with John and his team at The Mortgage Source. John and his team are amazing to work with. They took the extra effort during a very busy holiday season to ensure we got the best rates available and closed on time. We give them all 5 stars and promise you can't go wrong with The Mortgage Source.

John and his team were very helpful in making our loan process a very smooth transition.  The expectations were clear therefore our delivery was simple.   From start to finish there were no glitches and no surprises.  If you are looking for someone to give you the facts to help get you from point A to B quickly, this team is for you!  Thanks John and Tami!

We would really like to thank John and all his team at  The mortgage Source.  
We were purchasing a vacation home in Ellijay Georgia and it was no small feat.  It was very trying at times with the new laws tht went in to effect October 2015 (I think).  
We felt like we were being run through the wringer but...John made a very trying process very easy for us and he was ALWAYS available to answer any questions we had at anytime.  
His team, from the receptionist, Tami, to the underwriter,Carri Arrington was also very professional and pleasant to work with.  
We would highly recommend them to anyone at anytime.
John also got us a GREAT rate.  
There is just to many positive things to say about them all.  Nothing negative at all.
On a scale of 1-10, we rate them a 10
We will enjoy our new "mountain cabin".  
Thank you again for ALL your hard work.  
If anyone ever needs the BEST mortgage team....go to "The Mortgage Source".  You WON't be disappointed!!

We used John for our first home, again to refinance, and then again for our second home. John is quick to respond to calls, texts and emails. We found a house we wanted and John got us a letter right away, to show the sellers we were qualified buyers. That can be the difference in getting the house you want, or someone else getting it. We got the house. Thank you.

John and his staff were great to work with. John was able to secure a great rate for our mortgage, and he and his staff worked closely with us to make sure we closed on time. I highly recommend The Mortgage Source.

J. Payne

I am a 30 year member of one of the largest credit unions, and used them to finance most of our major purchases over the years. John and his team put them to shame when we purchased our new home. We shopped around and found that the rate and closing costs offered by The Mortgage Source could not be beaten. The personalized service provided by John and his staff made the whole experience completely painless. As an added bonus, we were able to use John as a "closing tool" when selling our old home. The buyer got a great deal and we were able to close very quickly. Happy endings all around! Thanks much.

John and Tami are my Superheroes.  After a hiccup with the appraisal with my first lender, I was recommended to John Kennedy.  Once I submitted the loans docs and got a correct appraisal, I closed in 12 business days! Truly amazing. Thank you guys so much! You are definitely on top of my referral list! 

Susan Skinner

As a founder of a start-up business acquiring a loan is no small feet. john at The Mortgage Source went 10 extra miles to get me into a mortgage that works with a great rate. the journey wasn't always easy but the destination was well worth the ride. Thanks to everyone at The Mortgage Source!

Spencer Nix

John and Tami were absolutely amazing to work with. They answered every question and helped us through the whole process. I would definitely recommend these two to anyone! They were awesome in every aspect of everything, and since we were first time home buyers, we had lots of questions, 5 stars and A+ all across the board with these two! don't go anywhere else, go see John and Tami, you won't be disappointed! Thank you both so much!!!! We love our new home and couldn't have done it without you guys! Thank you again!

Holly Pinson

The mortgage brokers did an excellent job, They asked for a lot of information up front, but this preparation made the closing go smoothly. Good Job!

Donna Buzzell

My wife and I recently re-fi'd our home. John at The Mortgage Source was great the whole way through. From the getgo, he laid out how everything should go and all the way till the signing, it went exactly as he had said. John got me a great rate and we were able to get everything we needed with this re-fi. He did not over promise, he told me exactly how things were going to work, and he was almost exactly right down to the penny. Obviously john knows his stuff. Great experience and if we had to do it again, I would most definitely use the Mortgage Source.
Thanks again, John, Danielle, and Tami for making what I thought would have been a huge headache into a very simple task with great results!

Tadd Schreiber

Starting the new adventure of buying our first home was scary! We had no clue on what we needed or where to go. The seller's agent recommended us to John at The Mortgage Source LLC. From the first phone we made to him we felt at ease knowing that we could interact with him on the phone, via email, and in person. working with john and Tami was such a pleasure! They helped us with any question we had, directed us to the path we needed to be on with the type of loan best suited for us!!! From the start to finish they welcomed us into their mortgage source family and got us into our first home with ease. they offer such amazing advice, helpful understanding of what we were signing and friendly reminders that this dream was coming true! We will recommend them to anyone who is looking to buy a home!
Thank you for all your hard work!!!

Heather Davis

AS a first time home buyer, I was extremely nervous about the whole process. John and Tammie walked me through the whole process and made it simple. I had issues getting letters from social security to verify my income. John continued to work with me and suggested another loan type than the original loan with USDA. He was able to find me another type of loan that met my needs. They made the whole experience positive and I would recommend The Mortgage source to anyone trying to buy a home.


When we started this path we had no idea how big that mountain was. We went thru the banks no luck. We went thru 3 or 4 mortgage companies and each time we would get to the final signing and things would fall apart. We thought we was at the end of our rope until a friend told us about "THE MORTGAGE SOURCE". Within no time we were on the road in the right direction. They were able to get us a contract with a great interest rate!!! I would have never thought this could have been any easier.

Nicole Butler Leverett

They were responsive and answered questions in a timely manner. Very happy with my experience.

Ann Ware

I wouldn't deal with anyone but him, from this point out. He was helpful from the very first call to the last. With his great advice and information on the types of loans out there, our family now owns a great home with a very low and affordable payment. I couldn't thank him and his staff enough for everything they do, all their hard work was greatly appreciated by our family and we will most definitely, without a doubt refer him EVERYONE we know. John and staff you rock!!!

The Longairc Family

John made this process so easy for my husband and me. We are first time home buyers and he was so informative and helpful. Spelled everything out for us in layman's terms and was on our side the whole time. Plus he got us a fixed interest rate of 3.5% who can beat that?!


We had an excellent experience with The Mortgage Source. John was recommended by my broker, and it turned out to be a great recommendation. John is very knowledgeable, and keep me informed throughout the process. I'll be recommending The Mortgage Source to friends and family.


Five Star*****John and his staff were so helpful in the process, managing emails and information with the follow up phone call, SUPER folks, recommend them to everyone.

Thomas Potito

John was great to work with. He was the 3rd person we spoken to during the time we were looking for a home. But he was the 1st person to keep talking with us and making it happen.

Erica Dinsmore

Mr. Kennedy was very helpful as he guided through the home purchase process. He explained every detail of the process thoroughly; was quick to return calls and emails. I highly recommend working with Mr. Kennedy and The Mortgage Source.



The loan you gave us put us in a much better financial position You were there for us the whole way thru the process. The rate and closing costs were the best out there!!

J. Driscoll

John was very nice and to the point about everything. He told me you need to raise your credit scores to make the loan work. He told me you need to do this and this and laid the whole thing out for us so that our credit scores would go up. Well, he made it happen . To be honest, I was skeptical and shopped around and talked to everyone even our realtors contacts. Even the local rep from Wells Fargo actually said, this is such a great deal why are you even looking around. No one could do what john said he could get done. Everyone warned me that when settlement day came I would be sorry. But the only thing I was sorry about was doubting it could be done and wasting so much time worrying. At closing , everything went flawless and the numbers were right in line and WE LOVE OUR HOUSE!!! I tell everyone that is considering purchasing that NO ONE can beat Johns offerings and service.

M. Perkins

Thanks for everything this has been the easiest mortgage I have done. I thought it would be the toughest.

When my husband and I started this process of buying a home, we thought it would be a very stressful process. John , you took all the stress out of the process and I want to thank you for that. If you are looking to buy a home I strongly recommend John at The Mortgage Source!!!

I just wanted to convey my thanks and say I�ve enjoyed our association. It�s good to talk with someone from Georgia again best regards,

Mike Mcgehee


I want to thank you so much for the Va loan you did for us. Everything you told us came true and more. Nobody was able to offer us the 100% loan that you magically put together.

Thanks again,

L. Kiel

This is the second loan I have done with you and once again your knowledge and efforts were outstanding. I will be sure to refer you to my family and friends!!

Thank you for helping me refinance. I know it took longer than we thought because I had to finish my kitchen but everything worked out.

B. Baastrup

This is the second time you dropped my rate. Thanks for another rate drop with no closing costs. You did it again!
