About Jason

A lifelong Chicago-area resident, I have been in the home loan business since 1995. You can bet I know the local market and understand the importance of treating each transaction with the personal care it deserves.

Having been in the industry for so many years, I have seen a multitude of loan scenarios and homebuying situations. I have worked with a variety of clients, from first time homebuyers to real estate investors with multiple properties. I also specialize in cooperative apartments, a niche market requiring unique co-op financing solutions that almost no other mortgage company can offer.

I am dedicated to providing an efficient and individualized mortgage experience for every client, and I pride myself on creating and nurturing relationships, even after closing day. That is how I have been able to navigate the ups and downs of the mortgage and real estate markets over the years when others have not.

Born and raised in Chicago's western suburbs, I currently live in the northern suburbs. When I'm not guiding my clients through every step of the homeownership process and helping my partners grow their businesses, I'm spending time with my wife, Cynthia, and son, Sean.

Owning a home is fun and fulfilling!

What’s not to love about having a space that is entirely yours? You can paint your bathroom fuchsia, have hardwood in the master, put up a wild Mosaic in the kitchen, install a smart thermostat, you name it. After all, it’s your home!

Equally enjoyable are the other personal and financial advantages of being a homeowner: security and stability, equity and wealth building, and more! I’m here to help you get the most from your home financing — whether you’re buying your first home, moving up or downsizing to match your lifestyle, or refinancing your current mortgage.

Reach your homeownership goals

  • There are some major milestones on your road to home financing. As your loan officer, I’ll be with you every step of the way to make sure you understand each one and get through them quickly.

  • How much will your mortgage payment be? How much can you save if you refinance? Is it better to buy than rent? Use these online calculators to crunch the numbers and see for yourself.

  • I separate myself from other lenders by offering a broader selection of home financing options — from loans for first-time homebuyers to refinance programs for accessing your home’s equity.

  • Before you explore the endless options of home financing, some preparation is in order. Planning ahead for your mortgage is the key to an easier and more successful home financing process.
