After 16 years in corporate finance, Jack moved into the mortgage profession where he as been for the past 24 years. He joined TheBANK in 2005. He currently has 24 years in mortgage lending, providing thousands of home buyers in the metro east with home mortgages. During that time, he has had the opportunity to be involved with the local community leaders and citizens.
I love helping people, so why not help people with one of their biggest financial events in their lives? This career gives me a tremendous sense of accomplishment, knowing I have helped people purchase a home for their family. After being in the mortgage business for a time, I knew in order do the best for my customers, I needed to be with the best lender in the area – TheBANK of Edwardsville.
I consider it a privilege to work at TheBANK – the corporate culture is second to none. Part of that culture is a feeling of family, and in my case, it is the real deal. My son, John, and I have been part of the mortgage team here for over nine years. I’m reminded every day that family comes first and here at TheBANK, we are family.
Short term success for my clients is a seamless loan transaction on the purchase of their new home. Long term success for my clients is for them to take advantage of, and benefit from, all of the services we provide at TheBANK.
A special element of doing a mortgage loan with TheBANK is that since we service our conventional loans (95% of the lenders do not do this), we have a relationship with our client for the term of their loan. My clients call seeking information or advice on their financial goals. Their trust in me is very rewarding.
I have a sense of urgency that sets me a part. I am available to my clients 24-7 and will meet them anywhere that works for them. Another personal trait is that I am a very determined individual. Once a task is front of me, I am on it until the task is completed.
When my clients become a part of TheBANK family, they are not just getting me – they are gaining access to the expertise of over 350 employees of TheBANK. We are ready to help our clients, be it a checking account, car loan, estate planning, investment advice, home improvement loans, or a fresh cup of coffee when they visit us.
