MJ Smith
Mortgage Broker

MJ’s background in research and analysis proves to be invaluable in the mortgage industry. She is a whiz with spreadsheets and numbers, ensuring that she looks at every angle and helps clients expand their perspective. When working with MJ, clients can be sure that her commitment to thorough analysis and attention to detail will mean the most cost effective mortgage. Additionally, MJ would have you know that goose eggs are not actually a bad thing!

Madia, also known as MJ, was first introduced to the real estate industry when she and her husband Sean purchased and renovated a HUD home. The hard work and dedication they put into that home jumpstarted their net worth, providing firsthand experience of the value of owning real estate. MJ’s travels around the world during her youth, from studying in Greece on a scholarship to singing in jazz clubs outside of Tokyo, have broadened her perspective and added to her wealth of experience. Today, she has settled down with her family on a small farm in Montezuma County, where she is passionate about raising/rescuing ducks and geese.

Daniel Hennek
Principal Broker

Daniel’s career began with a license in real estate instead of a mortgage license. However, his natural ability with numbers made him a great fit for the mortgage industry. With excellent communication skills and the ability to quickly analyze mortgage scenarios, Daniel was promoted to a leadership position within his first couple of years in the industry. He has since guided numerous loan originators, new and experienced alike, to achieve success in the highly challenging industry.

In June 2019, Daniel founded Montezuma Mortgage from the ground up, organizing and building the company himself. The company started its operations in January 2020 as a broker. Daniel constantly keeps pace with the latest technology, has been investing heavily in software infrastructure, and always works hard to make the Montezuma Mortgage process better. Additionally, he is committed to ensuring that all clients working with Montezuma Mortgage are satisfied with the level of service provided. If any client is not 100% satisfied he is always ready to get involved and deliver the desired level of service.
