    About Alex Ilich:

    As a child, Alex Ilich watched his dad work as a loan officer and knew that he wanted to practice the trade someday. Now, he’s been a leader in the industry since 1995, and even ran his own mortgage company for over a decade. Over the course of his career, he’s learned to work through any challenge and fight relentlessly on each client’s behalf.

    Alex believes that it’s important to understand every individual’s situation in order to provide the best service possible. He takes the time to communicate every detail of the mortgage process so that his clients can proceed through every step with confidence.

    A Chicago native, Alex ventured north to graduate from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Bachelor of Science in economics and mathematics. He was a varsity football player and Rose Bowl champion.
