About Brian

A former stock options trader working on the floor of the Chicago Board Options Exchange, I transitioned to mortgages in the early 2000s. My love of problem-solving and numbers made this change successful, allowing me to use these skills to help people finance their homes.

I’ve recently expanded my business nationally, growing my client base outside of Illinois to include national lending, in-house lines of credit, and portfolio lending. It feels great to carry a wide variety of loans, have a reputation for quick responses and transparency, and consistently make the process easy for every client.

I have been ranked among the top 1% of mortgage lenders by Mortgage Executive Magazine for over a decade, won President’s Club and Chairman Elite awards, and have been recognized by Chicago Magazine’s Five Star Professional Award for the last six years. Most importantly, I have a long list of families-turned-friends whose homeownership dreams have been made a reality thanks to my team. I look forward to doing the same for you as well!

Spending time outside of work with my family is my greatest joy. I have been married for 15 years to my wife Lisa and together we have three children along with two golden retrievers.

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.

Helping your home financing process go smoothly.

  • Payment Calculator

    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.

  • Find the Right Loan

    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.

  • Home Loan Check List

    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.
