As 1st-time home buyers we did not know a lot about how mortgages worked or even know where to look for one. Luckily for us, our realtor referred us to Gene Mundt. We couldn’t be happier on our decision of using Gene.  He was always there to answer any questions that would arise when searching for our home. When we finally found our home and it was time to talk numbers, Gene made this step of the house buying process easy to understand. He took the time to explain to us where each dollar amount is going and how it impacted our down payment and our monthly payment. We both really appreciate Gene taking the extra time to do this because it allowed Gene to get to know us on a more personal level and make sure that the payments would be something that we could handle on a monthly basis. When it came to the closing date, Gene was adamant on being at the closing to make sure that if we had any questions that he was there to answer them. If we were to do the process all over again, we would not hesitate one bit to use Gene.  He is a very reliable, intelligent, and hard-working individual! Thank you again, Gene, for all the hard work you did for us!

From the bottoms of our hearts, thank you. We just want to say thanks for all you've helped us with while obtaining our mortgage. You even helped us with parts of the process that didn't apply to you. We're grateful from head to toe.

Thank you very much for all the time and effort you spent on us during these past months. We trusted Maggie Karges to suggest someone who would be the right choice for us in financing our future home and she couldn't have referred us to anyone better. You've worked very hard to help us through this process and we want you to know how much we appreciate it.

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!

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.
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
