About Me

I am a veteran of the mortgage business based in Chicago. I have had a wide variety of positions in the business from call center Loan Officer, to Branch Manager, Broker Owner, Real Estate Investor, Marketing director and currently am Director of Renovation Lending for a national company based in Chicago. I am licensed to originate mortgages in the following states: Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.

This is my personal blog. It is focused on “Getting Deals Done.” My mission is to help you choose better mortgage options that improve your financial situation and your life. I serve Consumers, other Mortgage Professionals, and related business professionals like Realtors, Attorneys, Financial Advisors and Insurance Agents.

I write on interest rates, getting deals done, 203K and other renovation lending, networking, and small business execution. On occasion, I write about something that I think is relevant but isn’t a perfect fit for those categories.

My goal is to create insightful, relevant content that you can put to work in your personal and professional life. If you are in the mortgage and real estate market today — then this blog is for you.

I typically post three to four times a week. To make sure you don’t miss a post, you can subscribe via RSS or email. I also accept a limited amount of advertising if I think the product or service is relevant to most of the readers.

I work exclusively with American Portfolio Mortgage for borrowers around the country. American Portfolio is located at 800 E. Northwest Hwy, Suite 821, Palatine, IL 60074 NMLS# 175656
