Since 2004, I've guided hundreds of buyers and homeowners through the loan process and can draw from experience and extensive knowledge of ever-changing products & guidelines to solve even complex lending scenarios. I strive to provide the very best in customer service by being equally accessible and knowledgeable in order to create clients for life. My focus and commitment is to the best interest of each client and their individual financial goals. Buying a home can be a complex and stressful process, but it doesn't have to be.

By educating my clients from our very first conversation, I aim to remove the uncertainty and anxiety from the process. Every client has a unique set of parameters and deserves a customized mortgage. It's by devising a plan that meets these needs and offering a mortgage product they truly qualify for that I am able to deliver the final product - a concise loan approval and a prompt closing.

I'm a proud IU alumna and furthered my interest in all things Tech at the Starter School here in Chicago. My free time is spent with my husband, 2 sons and 2 dogs on the North Shore of Chicago.

    "Dana was great throughout our entire home search & purchase. She was able to turn around pre-approvals fast and also get the ball rolling quickly on the actual purchase of our home. Any questions we ever had were quickly answered in a detailed and thoughtful way. Her team also worked hard to make sure we got the best rate for our home and were very responsive during all transactions - especially time-sensitive matters when it came time to close. I'd recommend Dana to anyone in need of a knowledgeable lender."

    "I've now worked with Dana on five loan transactions and she makes the process seemless and is very upfront with all information- I will never use anyone else."

    "My wife and I were looking for our first home and we needed some financial guidance. We were recommended to Dana by a mutual friend and couldn't have been more happy with the results! Dana took us from looking at condos to single family homes, and eventually to the market of 2-flats. She was there as we changed our minds, deals went cold, offers changed and lastly sat at the table with us as we closed. It was like having a good friend there with you throughout the process; not only is she knowledgeable and patient, but made us feel cared for and safe to ask all and any questions. Thanks Dana!"

    "I highly recommend Dana for your lending! The final product she delivered was better than what I thought would be possible for my family. She is quick, laser focused and takes the time to explain all of your options."

    "As a first time home buyer, working with Dana was a great experience. She explained every step of the process and made sure to answer all my questions thoroughly. I would definitely recommend her and would work with her again on any future business!"

    "Dana helped make buying our first home an excellent experience. She was flexible to work around our schedule, taking evening and weekend phone calls when needed. A patient and proficient communicator she did an excellent job explaining everything that we needed to know throughout the entire process, keeping us up to date, and using our preferred communication channels when appropriate (phone, email, text, etc.) We would highly recommend Dana to any home buyer."

    "Dana took us from start to finish with complete ease. I have heard some terrible stories of last minute changes or jumping through a bunch of hoops. Dana was thorough and professional throughout the entire process, explaining every step so we knew just what to expect and be prepared for."

  • Jen L.
    "We recently worked with Dana on a loan and she was great to work with. The actual timeline from when we started working with her until when we closed was more than a year and she was always available for any questions we had or crunch numbers or talk about what the next step in the process was. I never felt like I was putting her out no matter how many times I asked the same question or asked her to revise the numbers based on this or that. I highly recommend Dana for anyone looking to buy a new home!"

    "After being "denied" by multiple places Dana did the work and made it happen. So many others just put things in a computer and don't do any work. Dana did the work and got the job done. She is truly the end all be all of the mortgage world. She goes over and beyond simply said. Just amazing."
