About John

After spending over 20 years in the world of residential lending, I’m an expert in helping homebuyers become homeowners. Currently a resident of Milwaukee, I previously lived and worked in Chicago and Madison, Wisconsin, giving me extensive knowledge of different home loan situations. I’m ready to give you first-hand knowledge about the buying process and make your experience as simple as possible.

From application to closing, you’ll get my undivided attention and one-on-one service. I believe excellent customer service and product knowledge are keys to success. That’s why I’m available to answer your questions almost anytime, even past 5 p.m., on weekdays, and most weekends. Together, we’ll make your homeownership dreams a reality.

Whether you’re buying a home or refinancing your current abode, I offer a variety of programs to fit your goals. From conventional and WHEDA to VA and FHA, we’ll discuss specifics and personalize the mortgage experience to fit your needs. I look forward to helping you get it done.
