When my valued past client, Linda, contacted me to ask if I could help her purchase a home with her daughter, Kristen, and son-in-law, Mat, so that she could be close to them and her grandchildren I was thrilled for the opportunity to bring the whole family together! I was able to get them approved to buy their new home without selling Linda’s current home, and we got it done in about 30 days. Now all three generations can sit down for family dinner in their beautiful new home! Special Thank You to the “dream team” of real estate broker, Rebecca Sayad (pictured second-from-left), of Illinois Real Estate Partners, and attorney Bradley Sayad (pictured far-right), of Sayad Law Group, for their top-notch services!

Waaaaaay back in the mid-2000’s I helped Christina and Jerry purchase their first home together. That’s why it was such a joyous and almost surreal reunion when I helped them purchase their 2nd home nearly 11 years later! How time flies! This is justification for why I keep in contact with ALL of my valued past clients, even after a decade of “silence.” Thank you for your loyalty and your business, Christina and Jerry! It was an absolute pleasure to work with their lovely realtor, Sally Ross (pictured far-left) of Keller Williams North Shore West, and their Attorney, Roger Stelk.
Michelle and Rocco got a sweet deal on their conventional mortgage by being first-time buyer’s with excellent credit scores! 3% down with the same interest rate as someone with 20% down, plus a mortgage insurance rate that was cut in half!! Just another tool in my mortgage broker toolbox! I have no doubts that Michelle and Rocco will have many wonderful years ahead in their beautiful new home! Huge thank you to their realtor-extraordinaire, Tanya Vogel (pictured far-right), from Ryan & Company Realtors, and their awesome attorney, Lehn Shepherd, from Kaiser, Shepherd and Nakon.
