About Jeff

Jeff Templin, Senior Loan Officer at CrossCountry Mortgage, was born at Scott Air Force Base in southern Illinois. His father worked in the military & airline industry, and his family settled in Crystal Lake, Illinois. Jeff graduated from the University of Illinois' College of Business in 1999 with a Bachelor of Science in Finance.

He first worked as a 401K Consultant at Hewitt Associates, and later at PricewaterhouseCoopers. He had considered transitioning his career towards the mortgage and real estate industries; his interest was finally sparked by his family: his Mother was a Realtor and his Grandmother was both a realtor and developer. In 2001, Jeff made the switch and began his career in the mortgage industry, helping countless home buyers achieve their goal of home ownership.

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

Choose from the tools below to help you achieve your homeownership goals or view all purchase and refinance tools.

  • 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.
