Jon Burgoon - President
Jon started working in the mortgage business in 1998 as a Mortgage Loan Originator. After many years of serving hundreds of clients with helping them get into the homes of their dreams, he moved on to the management of a wholesale lending platform (working with mortgage brokers nationwide). Jon continued to expand his knowledge and eventually became Director of a large national lender in Correspondent Lending. He realized after many years that although his work in correspondent lending was somewhat fulfilling, it lacked the personal aspect of directly working with consumers. In 2018, Jon left his position as Director and decided to get back to his roots as a Mortgage Loan Originator, opening up Elmwood Mortgage in Williamsport, MD. In a world that is becoming increasingly more automated and disconnected, Jon prides himself on having real conversations and giving straight answers to his clients either over the phone or in person. The personal touch is still very alive and well at Elmwood Mortgage. Of course, we also have all the technology to do everything online if you prefer. Jon likes to say, "we're kind of like Mayberry meets the Jetsons". Call us or come meet with us, you will instantly see there's nobody else quite like us.

Our goal is to provide home loans to our clients while providing them with the lowest interest rates and closing costs possible. Furthermore, we pledge to help borrowers overcome roadblocks that can arise while securing a loan.
In 1998 a group of us were brought together by a common friend in the mortgage business. We helped get his shop opened up with just four people in a small office building in Frederick, MD. All of us were pretty green in the business, and we weren’t well known, but we knew hard work and our personal commitment to serving our community would help us stand apart from others. Our hard work and devotion to homebuyers and homeowners have carried us through the years. We never lost sight of the reason for our continued success. It will always be about what is best for you. We will do everything we can to help you get into the home of your dreams or continue living in the home you have worked so hard to own.
By 2018 most of the original team has moved on, but what emerged was a new company, set on the same standards of excellence. We continue to provide unparalleled service but now coupled with the industry’s top technological solutions and know-how we didn't have back in the day. Our state of the art mortgage process is quick and easy! We can even finalize your mortgage while you're sitting on the couch with our eClosing option!
