The Mortgage Place is a local start-up that began in Cape Girardeau’s Marquette Tech District as a member at Codefi. The Mortgage Place leverages sophisticated technology developed by NexSpring to give borrowers hundreds of home loan options when purchasing, refinancing, constructing or obtaining a reverse mortgage. Senior Loan Officer Jeff Hussey executes each loan by compiling a selection of loan options using NexSpring’s state-of-the-art technology platform. He then narrows down the options according to the borrower’s expectations of interest rates, terms, closing deadline and their credit history while minimalizing hassles commonly experienced during the approval process. Hussey remains accessible to borrowers throughout the entire process, including evenings and weekends, to reassure home buyers that technology is making their loan process easier but is not replacing personal attention.


Meet Jeff Hussey

As a kid, Jeff moved from Memphis to St. Louis with his family. They often travelled back to Memphis for visits. Their drive always included a stop in Cape Girardeau, Mo., which sparked his interest in attending Southeast Missouri State University.

Jeff graduated from the University in 1990 and began his professional career in auto lending. After ten years, he transitioned into mortgage lending. The excitement he personally experienced as a home buyer and the joy he witnesses when his borrowers receive the keys to their dream home has kept him in mortgage lending for seventeen years.

Jeff currently resides in downtown Cape Girardeau. His wife of twenty-seven years, Chandra, is also a Southeast Missouri State University graduate. Their oldest son graduated from their alma mater, their middle daughter is currently a student their and their high-school-aged daughter plans to attend upon graduation.

He’s an avid Cardinals baseball fan, is a regular at Southeast Missouri State University football games and has perfect home game attendance for the University’s past three seasons. Jeff and his family enjoy waterskiing and golf, which they practice at Dalhousie Golf Club in Cape Girardeau. “I’m excited to help Cape County home buyers get the home of their dreams in half the time that traditional lenders normally take. I will be accessible to interested buyers beyond normal working hours including weekends and evenings. It’s my way of reassuring them that their dream home is within reach,” said Jeff Hussey, Senior Loan Officer.
