About James

A long-time resident of the Rockford, Illinois area, I’ve been originating mortgages for over 35 years. My roles as a licensed residential loan officer and sales manager for the “Your Mortgage Guys” team in Schaumburg have given me expertise in all aspects of home financing – knowledge I proudly use to serve clients in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana.

When you work with me, my focus is on providing an understanding of the mortgage industry that helps you feel confident in financing. We will discuss each step of the loan process, the programs I offer, and how my team can best meet your needs. From Milwaukee to Indianapolis and my beloved Chicagoland in between, I’m excited to make your dream home a reality!

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.
