35 Years of Extensive Mortgage Experience!

With 40+ years in the mortgage - banking industry, I draw upon a vast background and wealth of experience to assist and benefit my customers and referral partners.  

My past experience as a licensed Real Estate Appraiser benefits both well. This background helps me facilitate remedies or prevent problems in the processing and closing of my loans.  I have a deeper well of knowledge and experience from which to draw. That proves very beneficial. 

My Financial Planning background helps my clients immensely when preparing for and choosing their mortgage program.  It assists them in the usage of their most major expenditure and largest asset, their home and mortgage.

I offer a broad menu of mortgage options.  Those include:  FHA, VA, USDA, Conventional, Refinance, JUMBO and Portfolio.   The processing of my loans is performed in-house, so I retain greater control of the entire closing process.  

It's been my pleasure to have assisted the people and professionals in the IL/WI/Chicagoland area my entire business life.  I look forward to earning your trust and future business through thoughtful, knowledgeable and professional lending services.

I'm available to answer your questions and assist you via my website (, at, 815.524.2280, and 708.921.6331.  Please contact me at your convenience ...


Professional, Knowledgeable, Caring Service

Perhaps it's because I am a father of two sons, 34 and 39, (both of which are now fathers themselves) that I find working with first-time homebuyers such a joy. These transactions take special care and I am most happy to provide it.  Increasingly important and timely, is how my appraising background provides my clients and referral partners such great benefit during the mortgage process.  The housing market's current pricing and appraising challenges make this an especially valuable knowledge to hold and utilize during my clients' home buying transactions,  mortgage applications, and mortgage planning. 

Other Mortgage and Credit programs and services I offer include:

JUMBO Lending, Portfolio Loans, VA/FHA, USDA, Mortgage Planning, Management, Credit/Debt Counseling/Repair  

I look forward to earning your trust and future business through my thoughtful, knowledgeable and professional lending services.

He was a pleasure to work with and we will be using him again in the future.

When we first moved to Illinois 12 years ago, Gene made our house buying a smooth process. When we recently decided to move again within the Chicagoland area, we contacted Gene. Gene's knowledge and patience helped us transition to our wonderful new home. Thanks Gene!

The mortgage business is a complex one! It requires an experienced, honorable hand to move through it deftly. Gene Mundt has handled our personal mortgage as well those of our daughters. We refer him whenever possible. Gene treats his clients professionally with that personal touch that reflects how I want to be treated. When you refer Gene Mundt, he makes you look good and I certainly appreciate that. Gene Mundt is the very best!

Gene ... you made refinancing not only bearable but pleasant. In the past it has been right up there with poking my eyes out. Thanks for being so patient.

Denis C.  

Gene was very professional throughout the entire experience. Whenever I had a question, he responded back quickly and thoroughly. Not only did he guide me through the mortgage process, but he also was very helpful in letting me know what to expect next during the home buying process. I could not recommend him enough. Do yourself a favor and look no further.

Courtney C., successfully Closed Buyer  

Gene was recommended to us and I'm glad I called him! When my Big Bank loan process fell through, Gene immediately picked up the ball and ran with it. He was able to get us closed in less than 30 days and at all times demonstrated total responsiveness and professionalism. He worked hard to secure max credits on the closing and rate and delivered on a very tight deadline. It was our first time buying a home and he definitely made the process as painless as possible. I would recommend Gene to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Chicago area.

Heidi N., Client - after her successful Closing  

Gene was wonderful to work with! He was thorough, responsive and knowledgable. We've bought many homes over the years and have worked with several different lenders. Since we've found Gene, we will only use Gene. He is fantastic! He found the best options for financing our home. Highly HIGHLY recommend working with him.

Phil Talent, Client  

Gene puts his heart and sole into working for his client. We were a hard case that other mortgage brokers could or would not work with. Gene not only took on the hard case, but got us in our new home in less than 60 days. I would never use anyone but Gene in the future.

Carrie Jones, Mortgage Client  

It was a WONDERFUL experience working with Gene Mundt ...

Ryan, Successfully Closed Client, September 2014  

Gene: Your patience and expertise made the mortgage process a breeze for me and I deeply appreciate your time and effort on my behalf! Thanks again ...

The Osburns  

Gene: Tim and I just wanted to say "thank you" for all your help through our mortgage process. You were always so quick to help and offer advice. We really appreciate all the time you have put into our purchase financing. Can't thank you enough!

Brad and Kate, Customers  

Gene: I wanted to actually write out a thank you card, but I have terrible penmanship and things are pretty crazy right now, so this will have to suffice. I cannot say how thankful I am for what you have done for us over the past several months. Whenever we needed something you were always available and responded in a timely manner. With how crazy the real estate market was/is, we needed some sound people to work with and I have no regrets about going with you for our mortgage. It is rare these days to find the level of professionalism and genuine concern for clients that you expressed for Kate and I. Throughout this entire process it was evident that you had the highest expectations for yourself and the people you worked with, and that means a lot. As I said before, I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone we Brad and Kate
