Aimee Alison RenkesSenior Loan Officer, Branch Manager
I have been a licensed loan originator since 2005 and actively involved in the mortgage industry since 1999. This experience has afforded me the amazing opportunity to be featured as a mortgage industry expert by Bankrate.com, Yahoo!Finance, MSN Real Estate, Investopedia, Chicago Agent and WYLL AM 1160 as well as at various real estate meetings throughout Chicagoland.
I’m passionate about providing each client and referral partner a smooth, understandable and positive mortgage experience that inspires confidence and peace of mind. Personally I’ve bought a Chicago condo and suburban home, played landlord for a year and then sold that condo. I use these experiences to put myself in your shoes and deliver excellent customer service. I want to earn trust and confidence and make sure you are taken care of while seamlessly closing your loan. It’s your home and future. It’s my profession and my passion.
I have specialized experience in renovation lending closing more than 40 203k and Homestyle rehab loans in my career. I also offer the full mortgage product line with as low as 3% down options, jumbo financing, FHA/VA and using mortgage insurance reduction strategies to maximize tax deductibility for clients.
Born and raised in the north suburb of Grayslake, I have a degree in communications and business from Bradley University. After college I spent 14 years living in various Chicago northside neighborhoods before moving to the west suburb of Glen Ellyn in 2013 with my husband and three children Rosie, Bob and Tara.
I believe in giving back to my community and organizations that have helped me grow as a person so I’m involved with PTA and local Chi Omega collegiate and alumni chapters. I also love interval training and volleyball, running triathlons, playing euchre regularly with my girlfriends and experimenting with new recipes for my family.
