I am a native Californian, born and raised in the San Jose/Bay Area other than the last few years of high school were in Ukiah, graduating in 1981. I returned to the Bay Area and graduated from SJSU in 1992. After spending 10 years in retail, I entered the mortgage industry in late 1991 and the rest is history. I had found a place where I can make a difference and a path that provides a continued opportunity to learn and grow. With many different jobs and titles in the mortgage industry, I can say I still love every minute of it.
When I am not helping others obtain their dream of homeownership, I am out golfing or rolling the bowling ball, doing some seasonal gardening or making some fixes around the house. My wife and I have been married since 1994 and have three children we adopted. We also foster cats and dogs, working to find them great homes. I always say “everything in our house is either under foster care or adopted.”

Mr. John Norgard is an excellent loan officer who works at the Guild Mortgage in Morgan Hill California. I would recommend John to help anyone not only new homebuyers but also home investors to obtain loan mortgages. He is an expert in his profession and he is a very patient and an active listener in assisting homebuyers with the loan process from A to Z. I can always call him at anytime for help before and after I got my loan and I am very happy with the results.
