    Working with Jamie

    I have been in the mortgage industry for well over a decade and since 2005, I have been in the top 1% nationwide in closed mortgage volume. Whether you are a first-time homebuyer, or are in need of jumbo financing, I consider myself to be an expert in both of these areas and would be happy assist. Additionally, I am a professional when it comes to new construction and have financed over 700 new construction condominiums as a preferred lender for a premier builder in Chicago. I truly take pride in the work I do.

    I am licensed in IL, WI, MI and TX; however, I do want to stress that I can lend in all 50 states. I am dedicated to making sure I am with my clients every step of the way throughout the mortgage process, so please don’t hesitate to get in contact with me! An important piece of Jamie’s business/life philosophy is to give back to the community. That said, Jamie is giving 5% of his commission for every loan that closes in 2019 to Feed My Starving Children, a world renowned charitable organization that provides life saving meals for malnourished children throughout the world.

    The loan process went pretty well! They did a good job and they were on schedule and you really can't ask for more than that! The communication was just great, they always followed up with me and it's always good to have a solid communicator, it really takes the stress out of the process. It was the best, everyone was on the ball so I could not have asked for anything better!

    There's only one thing to say about Jamie, he's my Go-to" lender. I've worked with 20 buyers thus far in 2013 and my smoothest transactions have been with Jamie as my buyers' lender. I can always count on him and his team to execute and get to the targeted closing date with little to no hiccups. He's efficient, gets the best rates, all the while being very personable and "real." My clients love him, I love him, he'll be my "Go-to" for as long as he's in the mortgage business. Thanks, Jamie!!"

    The process was easy. Jamie and his team made it simple and clear what we needed to do. The use of technology made it easy for us to submit everything you needed. Jamie was always available and responsive to my many, many questions throughout the process. Jamie and his team were so friendly and helpful that I haven�t even gotten to the actual loan. The terms were better than I expected and I was not thrown any curves throughout the re-fi. They could not have done more. I will definitely recommend you in the future.
