Denise is a native Chicagoan with a Bachelor of Science from DePaul University and an MBA from Dominican University. She began her career at a local neighborhood bank, and obtained her Life & Health Insurance License, Series 6 & Series 63 Licenses, among others. She dabbled in Insurance and Investments for a few years, before moving into the Retail Lending scene. She quickly realized that helping people obtain financing to purchase a home was her true passion, so she invested most of her career helping homebuyers achieve the American Dream.

Whether you are purchasing your first home, buying an investment property, or simply looking to refinance for a better rate; Denise will walk you step by step through the entire process. Denise joins the Midwest Equity Mortgage/eClick Lending team with over 10 years of financial services experience and is excited to offer her clients the ability to obtain mortgage financing with a modern twist. Call Denise today to find out more about our down payment assistance programs, our flexible underwriting guidelines, and our new 13-day closing! Tambien Habla Espanol!

When she is not working, Denise enjoys spending time with her husband, 5-year old twins, and 8-year old son. She also enjoys running, yoga, cooking, and dining out in Chicago’s diverse culinary scene. Denise recently moved from the northwest side of Chicago to the western suburbs and enjoys exploring the trails on foot or by bike. She is, unfortunately, not heir to the Portillo Hot Dog dynasty, but she sure does love their chocolate cake!
