Senior Mortgage Consultant
Bernie graduated from Illinois State University in December 2014 and was hired one week later as eClick’s very first loan officer. He has been in the mortgage industry ever since and has loved every minute of it. He has closed over 300 purchase and refinance transactions during his short, but eventful and successful, career. Bernie’s motto - although not original, but proven - is: “honesty is the best policy,” and from this principle he continues to grow his business relying solely on referrals from business partners and previous clients. That business is earned through trust and communication.
From reading up on company stocks at age 11 to graduating with a finance degree to his newfound interest in cryptocurrency, Bernie has always had a keen interest in business and investments, which is why he has fit into the loan officer role so well. “Helping people fulfill the American dream of home ownership, or take cash-out of their existing homes to buy that sports car or add a pool to their home, has been very fulfilling,” Bernie says.
When he’s not grooving to house music at the Chicago concert halls or rooting on his Cubs at Wrigley Field, he’s usually at home relaxing with a book or binge-watching Seinfeld and re-watching Dumb and Dumber for the 100th time.
