We had a great experience and we really appreciated the work our loan officer did. She presented us with all our possible options and did a great job explaining the differences with those options.

My loan officer Cindy Smolin and her team were amazing! I've refinanced several times in the past and this by far was the easiest and most painless process I've ever been through.
Barrie M., IL
I was amazed at how easily and swiftly the process began and ended. Thanks!

Cindy Smolin went out of her way to explain things, clarify/try to resolve any fears or misconceptions I might have about the process in general. She was always available or quick to return communication (got me a preapproval letter while she was on vacation), and did everything she could to try to make things as convenient as possible for me. She is also very knowledgeable. I would use her again and would recommend her to others.
Carol S., IL
We had a wonderful experience with Cindy Smolin and her team. She was very accommodating throughout the entire process and made sure we felt comfortable with every step.

Cindy Smolin did a great job. I was not a "typical" borrower, and Cindy did a great job navigating through the options and getting me a loan that fit for me.

What can I say? Cindy's the best. Very satisfied with the experience and will definitely recommend her to others.

Finally got a moment to breathe! AND to thank you very much for helping us through this home-buying process! Although we've been through this before, it's still something we don't do every day. Which is why we need you! Yes, we have already recommended you to our lawyer and others and will continue to do so. Although it must get tedious at times hearing the same old questions from buyers, still we appreciate you and your staffs patience!

Look, buying a home is hard enough, but dealing with the mortgage/lending process can make it seem overwhelmingly difficult. I was thrilled to have found an incredibly knowledgeable guide through the whole process in Cindy Smolin and her team. Everyone we dealt with on her team was capable, competent and quick to volunteer help or an explanation to anything that we didn't understand. It's a great feeling to walk into a real estate closing knowing you're as prepared as anyone has ever been and then to see it play out exactly as planned thanks to the care and preparation Cindy's team put into it.

I had a very challenging For Sale By Owner transaction. Cindy Smolin was extremely responsive throughout. She walked me through the entire process-including handling a major issue with the title company during closing. I highly recommend Cindy Smolin. If she can move such a problematic transaction forward so seamlessly she can do an “average” loan with her eyes closed.

Cindy and her team were excellent in helping with the loan process! I did a 30-day close, meaning her team had even less time to get me approved. They got everything they needed to get done in a timely and efficient manner. Because of their hard work, I was able to get my loan approved and ready for closing. I look forward to working with them in the future for refinancing opportunities.
Stephen W. from Gurnee , IL via Zillow
Cindy was extremely helpful! She was able to help us close on our new home in a very short span of time. Cindy was always available to answer my questions over the phone or email. She really went above and beyond. I really liked how she broke down all the information as buying and selling a home can be very stressful. I appreciated all her assistance, quick responses, and professionalism through the process. I would highly recommend her!
