John HickeyMortgage Loan Originator at Midwest Equity Mortgage, LLC
I was very excited to come over to Midwest Equity Mortgage in November of 2017. I was attracted to the company's fast growth while maintaining a fantastic reputation among it's customer base. I was previously at one of the major online lenders in the industry and while I think I received fantastic training and experience - I am happy to be at a company that is not going to treat every customer as a number so I can give every client's file the attention it deserves.
I personally take great satisfaction in finding out my clients goals and what they are looking to accomplish with their home purchase or refinance and seeing them through the finish line while making it an easy experience for them. I often find myself as being an always available resource for my network with anything mortgage related even after the loan closes.
I am a student of the industry and am always up to date with the latest changes and constantly studying the guidelines. Many of my past closed clients were hesitant to initially have a conversation with me as they have been told NO by other lenders. Maybe they were told no because the other loan originator wasn't as knowledgeable on their craft or simply did not have access to the wide variety of products that we have in our portfolio. I love the shared feeling of accomplishment that we have as we see the loan closed when not too long ago they had been pessimistic about the possibility of it happening.
Outside of work I love spending time with friends and family, working out and enjoying all that Chicago has to offer.
