A fixture of the Colorado Springs mortgage industry since 1998, Jay Garvens has spent years developing a unique and comprehensive approach to lending and financial education. He has held several diverse positions at all levels of the lending industry; founded his own mortgage company; branched into radio and other educational media; and coordinates these ventures’ efforts to lead clients through the entire loan process while emphasizing education and superior customer service.
Jay’s introduction to the mortgage industry came in 1998 when he joined Top Gun Mortgage in Colorado Springs. After six years, he ventured out on his own, founding Garvens Group in 2005 and establishing two companies: Colorado Springs Home Mortgage Loans and VA LoanSource. At present, he has personally originated over 850 loans and, through his roles as branch manager, Vice President, and company owner, supervised the origination of over 4,000 loans.
In 2011, Jay launched the Jay Garvens Show: Home Mortgage Talk on KRDO News Radio. His unique approach to home mortgage talk blends advice and insights on mortgages, personal finance, the real estate and construction industries, and economics. To date, he has hosted over 150 educational shows covering all aspects of the lending and real estate industries.
Owing to the complementary nature of his mortgage and radio enterprises, Jay coordinates efforts between the two companies to provide mortgage- and real estate-related education and instruction for clients and potential clients. He has hosted educational courses for new home buyers, military home buyers, investors, and those interested in reverse mortgages or general refinances. Since 1998, Jay’s approach to lending has emphasized education and customer service. Today, these principles guide Garvens Group of Churchill Mortgage in all its ventures. Simply put, its mission is to transparently lead our customers through the loan process by using education, diverse loan options, and superior customer service.

HOST OF THE JAY GARVENS SHOW
Tommy was wonderful. Being first-buyer, we had a LOT of questions. He was 1) WILLING and EAGER to answer our questions, 2) AVAILABLE whenever we needed to talk, being accommodating to our work hours, and 3) he was able to answer them in a way we understood (no crazy real estate jargon). Tommy helped us through the process from beginning to end, every hiccup and speed-bump included. Even when we had issues with the financing companies, he was our advocate. He is clearly experienced, and he’s just…

Working with Tommy was a privilege and one of the easiest sales processes I have ever experienced. Tommy was on top of everything, making it easier for us while trying to manage the sale from Florida and dealing with our ailing parents.

Tommy is the best realtor that we have ever had the pleasure of working with. He met with us and fully listened to what we were wanting in a house. The very next day, we saw our dream home through Tommy’s notification emails. He got us in for a walk-through immediately. We instantly knew that it was the house for us. Even in Colorado’s extremely competitive market, Tommy negotiated and got us an amazing deal on our lovely home. I appreciated not having to spend weeks looking at homes that didn’t…
Tommy is a phenomenal realtor! Honestly, I can’t speak highly enough about his professionalism and the way he went out of his way for my wife and I. I’ve already referred 2 different couples to him and they have both loved working with him. You won’t be disappointed!
Tom helped my girlfriend and I find our current home here in the Colorado Springs area. It was no easy task with the housing market being what it is currently, but Tom sure made the process a whole lot easier. Tom is a self motivating agent and is ready to jump on any property that the buyer is interested in with short notice.
Tommy and his team did an excellent job making the home buying process easy and enjoyable. Tommy was patient with us as we spent months looking at homes, and when the right one showed up he made sure we got the house we wanted. He is definitely on your side and wants what is best for his client.
We can’t speak highly enough of our experience with Tommy Daly. We were first-time homebuyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. Every time we viewed a new property Tommy would perform a methodical inspection, looking for signs of problems and commenting on the quality of construction, finish, appliances, etc. Tommy is a true professional and you can tell he absolutely loves what he does! The best part about working with Tommy was that he was always more focused on an…

If you’re looking for a Realtor that can negotiate prices, find a…
