About Sly

I have been in the mortgage business for over 20 years and successfully helped thousands of families across northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin finance their dreams. I’ve gained extensive knowledge in many home loan products during this time, including conventional, jumbo, FHA, and VA loans. Through expertise and service, I have earned numerous production and customer service awards, along with amazing reviews from clients like you.

Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer, looking to trade up, downsize, or seeking a change, I can help you before you make an offer. We will sit down and look over your budget, income, and savings to get a clear picture of the best home loan for you. I’ll help you consider all the options and walk by your side to moving day and beyond.

The financial aspects of homebuying can feel overwhelming – but they don’t have to be! With a trained and caring professional like me in your corner, you will feel at ease from pre-approval to closing. Let’s get started on making your homeownership dreams come true!
