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!

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.
