What people are saying…"Our SmartREFI with Midwest Equity Mortgage, LLC is a lifesaver for my family's financial wellbeing. It almost seems too good to be true, but it's not. By consolidating my mortgage and credit card debt, and lowering the interest rate, I'm saving $400 a month with just one easy payment. Not only did I not owe anything at closing, I got $10,000 cash back to help ease the burden with my daughter's first year of college. Midwest Equity Mortgage, LLC fixed my cash flow situation and have given me peace of mind. I have refinanced with Midwest Equity Mortgage, LLC twice now with the same mortgage officer and will continue to go back and refer all my friends and family there. It's not like a big bank that doesn't care. I get personal attention, quality service, and professional expertise like no other financial institution." – Deborah, Arlington Heights, IL
••• "John Day by far made this the best refinancing experience. The process was quick, easy and stress free! I called with intentions to refinance one home and ended up refinancing two homes AND saving a ton of money. If your looking for someone who is professional and knowledgeable, give him a call!" - Blanca Shriner
••• "Joe worked diligently for us. He got answers that no other lender even attempted to get. He put our needs and concerns first, he was so attentive that I felt as though I was his only client at the time. I would highly recommend Joe, he is extremely knowledgeable with an incredible work ethic. He is the best that I have ever dealt with in lending." - Jackie Kronmeyer "I thoroughly enjoyed working with Matt as he was extremely knowledgeable and thorough about the whole financing process. He managed to make the stress of purchasing our first home seem smooth and seamless. I had interviewed several lenders prior to us deciding to go with Matt as he was the only lender of the four I had met with that truly customized a financing option that worked best for us and not just assume the cookie cutter approach that several others had encourage us to do. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone who seeks an extremely knowledgeable and creative financing expert. Thanks again Matt!"
••• "Adam Miller was great from the beginning of our home buying journey all the way to the end. I think I talked to Adam more than my mother during this whole home buying journey. He was always very responsive. I received a great referral from a friend and I will do that same." - Luara Fazio
••• "Joe was very friendly, helpful and professional when we refinanced our house a couple of years ago. He explained everything thoroughly. I would strongly recommend him to anyone. " - Giselle Gerolami
••• "I worked with Joe when i refinanced my mortgages in 2013. we were looking to take out a 2nd lender with higher interest rate and he made it a surprisingly painless experience. Bought my home in 2008, so as expected the comparable values were not on my side. Joe was very knowledgeable and very honest throughout the whole process. Would definitely recommend using Midwest Equity Mortgage, LLC, and specifically Joe, to anyone looking for financing. I feel like I got the best deal possible." - Brad Gnade
••• "Absolutely awesome! John (Midwest Equity Mortgage, LLC) was so good with me considering I do not understand most of the jargon. He never made me feel 'dumb' and was totally professional. He had great advice and was even willing to look at my husband's finances. The entire process was smooth and painless and I am now saving for retirement. Something I should have been doing a long time ago. Thank you!!!" - Melissa Schroeder
••• "You guys were great. The speed you guys work at its amazing, and Phil's customer service is outstanding. You guys definitely won my business as my go to lender. I'm so glad to have teamed up with you guys. I'm working hard to send you guys all the business I can get. I look forward to a successful year together. Thank you!"
