Sue came to me after she was told by her bank that she couldn’t buy her dream home without selling her current townhome first. I disagreed 😊. I was able to find a way to get her approved, and we were able to get her closed by her target date. Sue (pictured second from right) was such a sweet lady and pleasure to work with. Special thank you to her sensational real estate broker, Chris Hauck from Century 21 Roberts & Andrews, and also to her excellent attorney, Megan McAndrews (pictured second from left).
I’m delighted to say that I was able to help another veteran purchase a new home! Brian and his wife, Laura, came to me nearly 6 months ago when they were under contract to purchase their new-construction home. In the process, they had to sell their current home. The process had gone off without a hitch, until we were notified only 3 business days prior to closing that their buyer wasn’t able to secure his financing! In a matter of hours though my team and I were able to restructure their approval to allow them to purchase their new home without the sale of their current property…and our closing was saved. Just another day in the mortgage biz 😊. Special thank you to Chris Hauck of Century 21 Roberts and Andrews for her excellent communication and services throughout the process!
Shannon and Lee were referred to me by their real estate broker after being told by their previous lender that he could no longer get them approved for their mortgage more than a week after he told them they were fully pre-approved to buy this property. Since they were already under contract and closing within 30 days, they called me in a panic. Not only was I able to get them approved for their mortgage with less money down, cheaper mortgage insurance, AND at a lower interest rate, but I was also able to get their loan cleared-to-close in only 9 business days! This couldn’t have happened to a nicer young couple. They were absolutely thrilled at their closing, and they even agreed to send me a picture of them standing in front of their beautiful new home….in the negative 20 degree windchills! Thank you Shannon and Lee! Special thank you to their outstanding real estate broker, Beth Kautz from Century 21 Roberts and Andrews, and also to their fantastic real estate attorney, Michael Domanico.
I had the pleasure to help yet another first-time homebuyer last week. And you can tell by his genuine smile that Bram (pictured second from left) was overjoyed to be the owner of his very first home! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, there is nothing more rewarding to me in this industry than to help a deserving person to purchase their very first home. It is also rewarding to have the honor to work with a great team of real estate brokers and attorneys, such as Tanya Vogel of Ryan and Company Realtors, and attorney Lehn Shepherd (pictured far left). Tanya and Lehn are two of the hardest working in the business!
Here are a few of the highlights from the Century 21 Roberts and Andrews holiday party that I sponsored last Sunday. This awesome group of people have become like family to me over the last 15+ years of working with their office/agents…..hence why I felt comfortable enough to break out my Christmas Story jacket and tie for this fiesta . Thank you to all of the wonderful people at Roberts and Andrews for allowing me to partake in their holiday celebration year after year, and special thank you to Ken Murphy, of AMP Event Professionals for doing an incredible job year after year of keeping the party hoppin’!
Nick and Heather first contacted me in late-2016 to get pre-approved for a mortgage to purchase a home. After 2 years of searching, and multiple rejected offers they finally landed on the perfect home for them! It will be bittersweet to not be hearing from them anymore….until they’re ready to buy a second home 😊. They had a wonderful Realtor who came all the way up from Chicago to assist them, Michael Busking (pictured left), from Ask Nagel Realty, LLC.
The lovely mother/daughter duo of Ann and Dawn approached me with low expectations. One of them had good income but a low credit score, and the other had great credit but little income. When I told them I had them fully pre-approved for their mortgage they were pleasantly surprised. So much so that they went from not thinking they could qualify for a home, to CLOSING on their new home within a couple months! It was all laughs and smiles at their closing. Very special Thank You to their realtor (who never seems to slow down), Rita Valley, from Century 21 Roberts and Andrews for her excellent service. And thank you to attorney, Patrick McAndrews, who, despite barely making it into the background of our picture, was his usual present and joyful self at the closing.
Instead of giving Dave candy on Halloween day, I decided to give him a house instead. Well, technically I guess I gave him a mortgage, BUT it enabled him to buy his house! Dave was the perfect client, getting us everything we needed upfront, making the remainder of the approval process a piece of cake. As you can see I dressed up as Clark Kent who recently had Lasik surgery for the closing 😉. Special thank you to realtor extraordinaire, Yvonne Norton, from Century 21 Roberts & Andrews, and attorney phenom Courtney Clark (pictured right), for their remarkable customer service and teamwork.
One of my favorite exclusive programs that we can offer is our 97% financing program with no mortgage insurance. It felt wonderful to save Chris and Karin thousands of dollars right from the start of their loan! What a great way for me to say thank you for their repeat business. Thank you to Brian Jackowiak of Century 21 Roberts and Andrews for his real estate services, and attorney J.D. Huls for being truly first-class!
Edel and Yolanda were some of the nicest, most responsive, and most patient clients I’ve ever worked with. It warmed my heart to hear Yolanda say that she now has the front porch that she’s always wanted since she was a little girl. Special thank you to their incredible real estate broker, Joe Prindle, of Homesmart Connect, and their awesome real estate attorney, Mark DeRue, for their professionalism and excellent customer service!
