So many people have realized their dream of owning a home, and I am very happy to say that I played a huge role in that.

Teresa M. Giannini, Great Lakes Home Mortgage Inc. is featured in a special section of the October issue of Chicago magazine as a 2015 Five Star Mortgage Professional award winner.

“I have been a mortgage broker/banker since 1988, serving all of Illinois and Wisconsin. My office is located in Park Ridge, but I conduct business all over the Chicagoland area and suburbs. Our main office is in Libertyville, Illinois. Since my 27-plus years in the residential lending business, I have assisted thousands of clients with their mortgage needs. So many people have realized their dream of owning a home, and I am very happy to say that I played a huge role in that,” says Teresa M. Giannini of Great Lakes Home Mortgage Inc.

Five Star Professional partnered with Chicago magazine to identify and showcase an exclusive group of mortgage professionals who have demonstrated excellence in their field. Less than 3% in the Chicago area received this recognition.

The 2015 Five Star Mortgage Professional award winners have been carefully selected for their commitment to professional excellence and overall client satisfaction. The award is based on rigorous research with significant focus on customer feedback and providing quality services.

I specialize in the following programs:

-Conventional loans and low down payment with no PMI
-203k Rehab loans

-FNMA HomePath renovation loans
-FNMA Homestyle renovation loans
-Equity loans and lines of credit

All of these programs are available for purchase and refinances. We are also experts in approving condominium projects FHA. I never shy away from a difficult deal. If the deal cannot be done now, I will advise the client and guide them to the point of being a qualified buyer. We eventually go to a closing! I also attend all of my closings to make sure they close smoothly. Please call me any time. I am always available to assist you and your clients with their financing needs.

“It is a privilege to present exceptional mortgage professionals with the Five Star award each year. While professionals are evaluated on experience and production levels, the foundation of the award is client satisfaction. These elite individuals have worked hard to get where they are while continuously delighting clients along the way,” Lynn Hargreaves, VP, Research and Services Operations, Five Star Professional.
