My Story

Opes Advisors helps clients make effective financial decisions by showing them a new way of thinking about their mortgage – not just as a loan based on rates, ratios and guidelines, but as something with the potential to dramatically shift their financial situation now and into the future. During the mortgage process, our advisors show clients new ways of looking at affordability that take everything they care about into consideration.


Our Mortgage Advisors do extensive work upfront to determine the best financing structure in each particular client situation. Through years of experience and industry knowledge, our advisors have the ability to anticipate and avoid potential obstacles, giving clients confidence and peace of mind throughout the process.


As a mortgage bank, Opes Advisors originates, underwrites, and funds loans with its own capital, maintaining control of the entire loan process. Opes Advisors offers a full-range of competitively-priced loan programs and is knowledgeable in lender guidelines so we can match the best loan program to each client’s unique situation and needs. Our underwriters are well versed in local markets and we fund loans in-house, maintaining complete control to ensure fast turn-times and a smooth loan process.

“James and I began working together right at the beginning of the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic. Through his steady guidance, I was able to obtain a mortgage and secure my first home at an excellent price. I was blown away by his unwavering support and transparency throughout the process. In a time when it was seemingly impossible to predict the real estate market, James really helped to put me at ease and assured me we would see things through. I can’t say enough about the level of customer support I received! I only wish all first time homebuyers could have a trusted mortgage broker like him for an initial experience.”
-Brayton P.

“The service and personal attention I received from Jim DeMarco was exceptional and beyond my expectations. I am very thankful for Jim’s professional, responsive and honest assistance with the whole mortgage process from beginning to end. He made himself easily available to me via any method of my choice – email or cell phone, and he was always happy to answer any questions that I had. I am grateful for all the work that Jim devoted to helping me purchase my new home.”
-Erika R.

“Jim was excellent throughout the mortgage process. He is a true professional and has wealth of knowledge. Jim was able to walk me through each step and was able educate me on the various loans. He was always looking out for our best interest. Jim was always available to answer any questions or concerns. He was truly an asset throughout the home buying process!”
-Heidi G.

“Overall, the experience was exceptional. We have purchased and financed many homes in the past. Working with Jim and Opes enabled a level of trust that we previously had not experienced. That is, that all would turn out when and how we planned. And, it did.”
-Rosemary O.

“Let me start by saying, my experience is very unique. I was approached on many fronts to sell my duplex that I had owned several months back. One thing I didn’t plan on was that once I actually would put my duplex on the market. I would have offers on the table and have a contract signed before I had even had time to find a house to buy. This is where Jim DeMarco and his team came into play. I had 0 time to visit a bank and even less time to bring the paperwork and documentation needed. Luckily for me, I was referred to Jim and we worked together from across time zones and went step by step. Every step of the process he was there to reassure me that not only was everything coming along nicely, but that no matter the obstacle, it would work out. He would make sure of that. He was true to his word, he helped me find the correct documents to provide and before I knew it, I was approved for a mortgage, found a house and signed the contrac ts for that house. I am not sure if I would of been able to be as efficient without Jim for this whole process.”
