Senior Loan Originator
Michael has worked in the mortgage industry for over three decades. He has worked both for institutional banks and mortgage companies, appreciating the differences and advantages of each. His favorite aspect of the business is the delight of first-time homebuyers closing on their purchase.
Michael attended Judson University in Elgin where he majored in history and economics. He lettered in baseball, soccer and cross country. After graduation, he attended Al Sommers School for Umpires in hopes of securing a position as a professional baseball umpire. Despite not making the professional ranks, Michael umpired college baseball and college soccer throughout the northern Illinois area.
Michael enjoys travel and has traveled extensively to South America, Europe and near Asia. He has learned some German, French and Italian, (the vacation versions), in order to more easily get around and to enjoy the experience. Getting to see things in person that have only previously been seen in pictures is unforgettable.
Michael has two adult children who live in the area and who both began their working careers in the mortgage industry. Michael's most important position is that of being a grandfather to three charming grandchildren. They live just a few miles away and are able to spend lots of time just hanging out and doing craft projects. They rarely hear the word "no" when grandpa is in charge. Michael has been a lifelong resident of Illinois and is active in church, enjoys cycling and plays golf whenever time permits. He is married to the love of his life and resides in scenic Sleepy Hollow.
