NMLSR ID: 527232

My last name is eight letters long and has one syllable. Pronounced, "STRAWN," it is an old Scottish name that has belonged to many before me. A long time ago, I lived in New Orleans with other Strachans for nearly 20 years while eating scores of crawfish and celebrating many Mardi Gras. I've since moved to Illinois and received a B.A. from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I now happily reside in Lake County, IL with my lovely wife and daughter.

In 1998, I changed careers as a Brewery Manager in Chicago to that of a Professional Mortgage Planner. In 2011 after thirteen years with other top lenders, I joined American Portfolio Mortgage with a healthy amount of experience, strength and dedication that parallels the attitude and ability of this trend-setting lender. I am also very fortunate to have a skilled operations team at American Portfolio Mortgage. My team is complimented by several dedicated mortgage professionals who work "off stage" to ensure that every customer receives the utmost in customer service.

I look forward to being able to deliver clear, concise and valuable information as I help you make correct choices. I understand that financial decisions are very important and that larger debts like your mortgage need to be properly managed. That's why I've joined American Portfolio Mortgage, a lender with better answers, better solutions and a better relationship with its clients.

Quite simply, proper mortgage debt management requires a better relationship. May I help you today?
