John Schutze was born and raised in Austin, TX and graduated from Texas State University with a degree in finance. Beginning his career as a financial advisor, John has a unique perspective when it comes to advising his clients on the best mortgage type for their financial plan. With almost 20 years experience in the mortgage industry, John has helped over 1500 families purchase or refinance their home.

My purpose:
Empower my clients to make confident mortgage decisions with a clear presentation of the available mortgage options and valuable financial insight. Before becoming a Mortgage Originator in 2002, I was a financial adviser specializing in personal financial planning. I began to focus on helping my clients manage their mortgages, and then fully transitioned to the mortgage profession in 2002.

Communication is the key to a successful and satisfying home-buying experience. My team is proactive and we value consistent and timely communication between all parties throughout the entire loan process. Each interaction, whether it’s with a client, an associate or a friend, is an opportunity to leave a positive impression on a person’s life, and ultimately, the world.

I was born and raised here in Austin and have lived in Central Texas ever since. I graduated from Texas State University in San Marcos with a degree in finance with an emphasis in personal financial planning. I spend most of my spare time with my four kids. We enjoy camping and always have a little league game to go to!

I understand that the process of financing a home can seem complex. My goal is to simplify the complexity and serve as your guide in securing a mortgage. I will lead you through my 4-step process where we will have you achieving your goals quickly and confidently. We will begin with data gathering, next we will discuss options available to meet your short- and long-term financial goals, your loan will be submitted for approval, and before you know it you will achieve success as we close your loan.

Mortgage Testimonials



Your pre-approval is just the very first step in the home loan process, so you have to make sure to keep all of your other paperwork together and available for when you’re ready to buy. Being prepared will speed up the process immeasurably, so we’re not waiting on paperwork to finish. We can close for a prepared buyer in two weeks.


When we have completed the pre-approval, we will use the information that we gathered to find the loan amount that works best for your situation. 

We work hard to make it easy on you. Nobody gets lower rates on better loans than Texas Loan Experts.
