About Tammy

With 36 years of experience in the mortgage industry spanning commercial banks, brokerages, and correspondent lenders, I have the knowledge and skills necessary to ensure a smooth, stress-free loan financing process from beginning to end for all of my customers.

I started out on the ground floor as a loan processor, then worked my way up to closer. In 1988, I started a new path as a full-time loan officer, broadening my horizons and building my own client base in the process. That work ethic and dedication to my clients earned me recognition in the October 2020 issue of Chicago magazine as a 5-Star Mortgage Professional, an honor bestowed on only 1% of the people in this industry.

I am fully committed to providing each of my buyers with personalized service. My extensive knowledge of varied programs such as FHA, VA, Refinance Relief, and Home Path™/Home Steps™, combined with hands-on experience in processing and closing loans, gives unique capabilities in guiding my clients through every phase of the loan process.

Working for CrossCountry Mortgage, I have access to innovative and proprietary product lines along with in-house underwriting and closing departments, allowing me to provide my customers with top-quality service they can count on.

With all of that in mind, why wait? Contact me today and we’ll get started on all of your mortgage needs!
