As a professional in the mortgage industry for over 16 years, I have learned that what continues to excite me about helping my clients attain the dream of homeownership is the ability to constantly improve the client experience. I strive to make the process of getting a mortgage easier, faster, and more transparent. By understanding my clients’ expectations, and delivering well beyond them, I am able build personal and trusting relationships, and have the opportunity to serve their home financing needs for life.
A mortgage is likely the largest debt an individual will have, and it is so important that it is professionally managed. My passion for educating clients on their mortgage options means they are getting a true advisor that can integrate their mortgage into an overall financial plan. The possibility that I can help someone be better off financially because of how we structed their mortgage is something that motivates me every day.
Challenging myself to see continued improvement in all areas of my life is something I strive for. Nothing in my life is more important to me that being the best Wife and Mother of my 2 little girls. Being with my family and experiencing life with them is what brings me the most joy and fulfillment.
They say “How you do anything is how you do everything” so I aim to play big in everything that I do!

Hello, I’m J.D. Crowe, President here at Southeast Mortgage. My career in the mortgage banking industry began in 1998 after serving 6 years as an officer in the US Army. As I was leaving the Army, I was planning on staying in the logistics field. I traveled to Atlanta for a final interview but was surprisingly convinced by a good friend who worked in the mortgage business to work with him and learn about the industry. He gave me three cassette tapes to listen to that described the type of person that thrived in mortgage sales – a person that had both the ability to relate to people and sell and also have an analytical side who can pay close attention to detail. I was immediately intrigued as this sounded like the perfect fit for my skills.
Fast forward to April of 2010, when I made the decision to join Southeast Mortgage. Initially my goals and directives were to originate mortgages, start a branch and develop a sales team. I quickly took on other tasks and began working company level projects to assist in the growth of the entire organization.
I am proud to be part of the team at RPM Mortgage®. With the support of in-house processing, underwriting and funding professionals, I am able to offer the fast, personalized service you deserve when purchasing or refinancing your home. Our vast collection of lending products is designed to accommodate unique scenarios and offer you more choices. Getting started is easy with our Home On Time® Application. You’re able to submit your profile and financials in minutes from any device, and communication is streamlined so you and I can share information quickly and easily throughout the lending process.
