Get to Know Chad Banken

Since 1996, I've originated thousands of residential mortgages in Minnesota to satisfied borrowers. I credit my clients, realtors and business partners for this accomplishment.  Their trust in providing superior service, terms and experience to such important financial transactions seems to resonate with thier referrals (everyone loves referrals!)  I will continue to help clients with the smoothiest process possible for their mortgage despite the ever changing mortgage market.

As an active real estate investor, I've been a principal in hundreds of residential properties in the Minneapolis/St Paul area since 1998.  The current real estate and lending environment has led to the launch of our pilot program: CD10.  CD10 aims to assist home buyers who do NOT qualify for traditional mortgage financing to purchase a home using a contract for deed with common sense terms.

I love football, basketball, golf and playing (or watching) my 3 boys in the many sports they participate in.  Along with my wife Janet, we enjoy traveling and meeting new people.


I focus on the following areas, but can assist with all areas of mortgage lending:

1. Extremely competitive fixed rate first mortgages

2. Contract-for-deed financing and management to ensure all parties are well protected through the contract period.

3. Distressed homeowner solutions - foreclosure, bankruptcy, divorce, etc

4. Investors and residential investment grade real estate liquidation or cash-flow strategies.
