Denise is your last stop on your destination in finding a loan officer. She was beyond helpful, helped us look at our unique situation from every angle, including looking at different types of loans, and being incredibly patient with us as it was our first time purchasing a home. Denise was available, timely, incredibly responsive to texts, emails, and phone calls. And most of all, she was friendly and personal and explained everything in a way we could understand. I look forward to recommending Denise to family and friends looking for a loan officer.

Denise is faithful, reliable, knowledgeable to get things done quickly and easily, and quick to respond to my questions. She is the best loan officer I have ever worked with. I can't say enough great things about Denise. I am very happy and would highly recommend contacting her for finance needs based on my experience.

Denise truly is a one-of-a-kind gem who is the best possible combination of a calming coach and a loan expert! She is a clear and thorough communicator who helped me understand all the steps and every step of the way. The pre-approval process and prior to underwriting is indeed daunting, but she explains everything and helped prepare me. As anxious as I was, she was always patient and kind and took the time to answer all of my questions which you just don't get with the big banks. I highly recommend Denise and will continue to send those I love her way when they are ready to purchase! Thank you, Denise, for your professionalism, your knowledge and your willingness to just be a wonderful person who held my hand the entire time. Many blessings to you and your family!

Wow! Where do I start? As a self employed borrower with an imperfect credit history who happened to be working against the clock to close on my home, I knew there was only one person I could trust to get us through this, Denise! Several of my closest colleagues- along with friends within the real estate industry- recommended Denise based on their personal experiences. When you’re respected by the pros who do this for a living day in and day out, that says something. The process was very straightforward. The documents requested during the preliminary stages may seem a little daunting but they truly are setting you up for a much smoother transaction down the road. So much so that my only conditional approval stipulation was an updated bank statement. I have firsthand experience with the letdowns that are occasionally associated during this process, do yourself a favor and work with Denise and spare yourself from the headaches. I know I have the best mortgage professional in Illinois on my side, do you?
