Mitch Jones

Using his previous experience in the hospitality industry and as a business owner, Mitch Jones can strike up conversations and relate to just about anyone. Now, as a lender for the past seven years, he uses this skill to quickly understand borrowers needs and develop the personal connection to accomplish their goals. Mitch is a native of Kansas City, proud dad of four boys, and an avid Chiefs and Royals fan. His love of the Chiefs provided an assist with another love. He proposed on the 50-yard line at Arrowhead Stadium during a game! (Lucky for him, his wife is also a Chiefs’ fan and said yes.)
