About Karylle

With more than 25 years in the mortgage industry, I have learned many essentials to ensure you a smooth loan process. All buyers are different, with individual circumstances, needs, and goals. Clear communication and teamwork are critical to reaching the finish line and making contract deadlines. That’s why my team and I have mastered these skills to move you swiftly to closing.

When you work with me, I’ll put myself in your shoes. I care deeply about each client I work with and want to relate to your individual story. Making sure you finish your experience in a better place is what fuels my passion for mortgage lending. I specialize in conventional mortgages, construction loans, government programs, and have been a top producer in the central region of Illinois with IHDA since 2015. No matter your aim, I’ll help you reach the mark.

While my primary focus is on home purchases, I welcome refinances. I’ve helped over 1,200 households achieve their homeownership dreams in the past two years, with 95% of my portfolio being agent referrals and repeat business. I look forward to giving you the same incredible customer service and success, too.
