John Haydin did a fantastic job putting a deal together that saved me thousands compared to another lender. John and I are both veterans and his knowledge of how to complete a VA mortgage with all requisite benefits was a huge factor in my decision-making process.

From my very first phone call to check my spending power and preapproval to the after closing call to ask a final question. First Centennial Mortgage was always responsive and quick to assist. A+ all the way!

Should myself or my friends and family ask for a mortgage lender suggestion, I’d recommend John Haydin and his team at First Centennial Mortgage.

- Clinton K., Waukesha, WI, November 2020

I had given up on finding a preapproval until a business associate gave me John Haydin’s phone number. John set my mind at ease and worked with me to get everything taken care of. He knows what he’s doing. Five weeks later, I am living in my new home. I am so grateful I found out about First Centennial Mortgage and the knowledgeable associates working there. Their motto should be "Making Dreams Come True.” I cannot thank them enough.

- Cris M., West Bend, WI, October 2020

John and his team did an amazing job on our home loan. He cleaned up our credit and got us an unbelievably low rate. He called us and went over every step of the process. He was extremely knowledgeable and seemed to truly care about getting us the best rate and loan we needed. I don’t think Mindy ever sleeps, she was on call to answer all our questions and help us get the final paperwork to close on time. The whole process went smoothly, and we could not be happier! I would highly recommend him!

- Bryan V., Waukesha, WI, September 2020

John went above and beyond! We had some work to do, to get us into a good buying position, and John heroes in every step of the way.

John was very professional at all times. He kept me aware of every step that was happening and was always available to answer my questions and concerns. This was my first home purchase; I didn't know much about the process or what to expect but he walked me through each step and made it VERY EASY to understand. He made the whole process painless! I’d highly recommend him! The team at FIRST CENTENNIAL MORTGAGE IS THE BEST!

- Racheal K., Milwaukee, WI, August 2020

John went above and beyond and he actually cares! He explained everything step by step to me knowing, I am a first-time home buyer! He was always positive and made me feel so at peace with the long process of my very complicated manual underwrite loan! No matter what time of day or night I could text him or call him and ask a question or just have him tell me everything will be okay, and if there is a problem we will deal with it and fix it and if we can't fix it we will figure something else out! There needs to be more John Haydin's out there so more people in my very complicated situation will actually have a chance to own their first home! Because of John Haydin at the age of 45 years old, I own my first home! I also want to include John's team Mindy and Yoen they also were rock stars in helping me get my first home! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I will forever be grateful for you John Haydin and your TEAM! My children, grandchildren and I finally have a place to call HOME!

I feel John was my miracle worker! Helped me with so much from my credit score through underwriting and to closing, he took a dream of mine and made it real when others could not!
