He is married to his high school sweetheart and is a father of two young children. Jon has realized the importance of always being supportive, setting priorities, making goals, meeting expectations, and time management. He has been in the mortgage industry since 2002 and has dedicated his mortgage career here at Smart Mortgage Centers Inc. ever since. Over the past 15 years, the dedication and hard work he provides his Florida and Illinois clients and contributing the same effort to the company, he was promoted to Operations Manager. In addition to being the Operations Manager, he is also one of the top originators in the company year after year. Jon fully understands the entire process from loan origination to closings, and by breaking it down to a step by step process he makes sure all clients understand the “what, when, why and how” to ensure an easy, fast, and transparent process. Jon enjoys learning from, and working with, new clients every day and maintaining those relationships long into the future.

Jon’s favorite things to do besides being a father and husband would include his annual fishing trip to Canada with his brother in law and father in law, visiting farmers markets, watching hockey, barbecuing, and coaching his son's tee-ball team.

My experience working with Jon Butusov was absolutely amazing. I had a rocky start but Jon was my real life super hero! I felt confident he would get the job done and he did, he kept me informed, letting me know what would or would not work, he was patient and professional and he kept me in a positive space until the very end, he even checked on me after closing..... Jon you are amazing at what you do and wear your "S" on your chest proudly!!! Any one using this company ask for Jon Butusov

I highly recommend working with Jon Butusov for a home loan product. He handled our jumbo loan with the highest integrity and detail. In particular, he helped navigate the legal details associated with our land trust. Our experience was exceptional and will work with Jon in the future

I was at a 15 year loan but also had a home equity loan and wanted to combine the two in a 15 year loan. After checking a couple of other lenders i felt they were not telling the truth. I called Jon at smart mortgage and immediately i felt that i could trust him and was extremely pleased with the service and attention. All questions were answered quickly with explanations if I did not understand. The process went faster than I anticipated and we closed approximately a week after the appraisal was completed. Thanks Jon, for all your help
