About James Thelen

“I enjoy taking the time to answer questions and offer guidance, and I work diligently to make sure I’m always providing the best service to my members.”

Purchasing or building a home is one of the most important financial decisions we make in our lifetime, and I pride myself on making sure my members feel comfortable with every aspect of the process. I enjoy taking the time to answer questions and offer guidance, and I work diligently to make sure I’m always providing the best service to my members.

My 37 years of experience in the financial services industry, with the last 25 years being specifically in mortgage lending, coupled with the programs and services LMCU has to offer, will allow me to help members make the most educated and best decision for their family based on their financial needs and goals.

I have extensive experience educating first-time home buyers about the home financing process – from pre-qualification all the way to the closing table. If you are building your dream home, I have experience navigating the construction process from beginning to completion.

I have deep roots in my community, living in St. Johns my entire life. My wife, Cyndi, and I have five adult children and enjoy spending time with our seven grandchildren. In my spare time, you’ll find me outside gardening and working around our hobby farm. I am an affiliate member of the Greater Lansing Association of Realtors and Michigan Mortgage Lenders Association.
