American Portfolio Mortgage Corp. office in New Lenox, IL
Some have asked me, "where've you been lately?" They've noticed that my posts and social media activity has been somewhat spotty.
Well, the answer is ... I've moved!
I've moved my mortgage business that is ... moved it to a new company ... American Portfolio Mortgage Corporation. And paired with that move, I have been made Regional Sales Manager for American Portfolio and charged with starting a new Branch for the company in New Lenox, IL. I'm very excited, to say the least ...
Some things remain the same. I will continue to offer great personal and professional mortgage service and guidance to my clients and current Referral Partners, as I've always done in the past. But I will also be building new relationships, as now I will also be recruiting new mortgage originators for this conveniently located New Lenox office and for the company.
In reflection, it's funny how my life has come full-circle with this recent change. I began my mortgage career with a savings and loan located on Route 30 in New Lenox. I now return to Will County and New Lenox, to open a Branch office for American Portfolio Mortgage Corp., some 35 years later, at a location just 1/8th of a mile away. I can see my old office from my new.
A little background on American Portfolio Mortgage:
American Portfolio Mortgage Corp. was founded in 1996 by New Lenox native, Paul Kessel and his business-partner, Scott Vorreyer. In fact, Paul Kessel and I have been "team-mates" before my coming onboard at American Portfolio, as we played football together at Lincoln-Way Central High School back in the mid-70's. See what I mean about coming full-circle?
Paul and I are back together again ... but this time we're forming another kind of "winning team". Our new American Portfolio Mortgage Corporation office in New Lenox is located at:
318 Alana Drive
New Lenox, IL
My Contact information is now a combo of old and new. It remains very important to me that we are easily capable of finding and communicating with one another. I ask that you bookmark or save the following info for future contact:
You can also continue to find me via many of the most popular social media, as well as Skype.
American Portfolio Mortgage Corp.originates, underwrites, and closes all their loans in-house. The company has locations in many locales throughout the Chicagoland area ... and lend in multiple states. American Portfolio Mortgage Corp. is committed, as I am, to expanding and growing its presence and services in new areas and states in the future. Their multiple locations provide me great flexibility and serve as conduit to my clients and Referral Partners across the nation.
Thank you to all for your friendship, past support, loyalty, and business. I look forward to continuing and strengthening those relationships well into the future. I also look forward to developing new relationships ... with new clients, Referral Partners, and fellow Originators ... through the many services and because of the new opportunities afforded me through American Portfolio Mortgage Corporation.
I extend an open invitation to stop by and view our new American Portfolio Mortgage Corp. - New Lenox office soon. The "Welcome" mat will be out, the coffee will be on, and I'll be glad to see you ...
