Roger served as a Board of Director of the Illinois League of Financial Institutions and as a member and former chairman of the Illinois League Career Development School Committee.
Roger is involved with all types of loans including commercial, investment, and residential. He is most experienced in the residential lending market where he has spent most of his 29 years. When asked how residential lending stays fresh after all of these years, Roger replied, "Nothing makes me feel better than to assist people with home ownership. The ability to own real estate is what really makes the United States different from other countries."
Roger's tip: Whether buying or building, it's never too early to stop in and see a loan officer. The sooner a loan officer can help get you qualified for the loan, the easier the closing process will be after you find a home to buy or build.
