About Jason

Growing up, my siblings and I were taught the value of hard work and education at a young age. Our parents were teachers, and we were all involved in sports – both playing and watching. I competed in two sports in high school myself and graduated with an academic honors diploma. I attended Marquette University and Purdue University, bringing the skills and dedication I learned throughout my life to the mortgage industry.

My top-of-the-line service starts with a holistic and educational approach to home financing. As a 5 Star Award Recipient and Scotsman Guide Top 1% Originators honoree with 17 years of dedicated service, I expect nothing less than what I would want to receive in customer service and communication. My team and I will make sure you’re comfortable and confident with the loan you choose. From application to closing, expect only the best.

Our superior service lends to achieving one mission: helping families achieve the American dream of homeownership. Whether you’re buying your first home, making a move, or upsizing, I look forward to providing an outstanding home financing experience.

For fun, I love spending time with my wife and daughter. We go for walks, watch movies, and do anything else we can do outside. I’m also a huge Chicago sports fan and enjoy watching the games – no matter the sport or season.
