Peter Froehlich and his team have extensive mortgage origination experience in the Chicago market and have financed more than $1 billion in residential mortgage loans. The Froehlich team is passionate about service, and their focus is on understanding the homeowner’s goals, including time horizon, cash flow desires (both short and long term), and tolerance for risk. Once the borrower’s goals have been identified, a plan can be formulated to fit the homeowner’s objectives. Pete’s team views a mortgage as a financial instrument, and client satisfaction is the top priority.
Wintrust Mortgage has established formal business arrangements with dozens of different banks and lenders. As a mortgage banker, they have access to a wide breadth of programs and very competitive rates from lending partners. This allows the offer of many financing options; however, the underwriting and funding of the loan happens in-house. You will never be waiting for a third-party wire at the closing table.
Wintrust maintains control to ensure better accuracy and speed. The loan processor, underwriter, and closer are right down the hall. They are not in a different state, and they are interactive, accessible, and communicative.
Get the Froehlich team involved early in your home-buying process. Being pre-qualified will give you and your real estate professional a firm idea of the price point at which you should conduct your home search. A pre-qualification from Pete’s team will also put you in a stronger negotiating position when you find your dream home. Call Pete today to get started.
