Testimonials

“Dan goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure your mortgage experience is as enjoyable as a mortgage experience can be.

Even though I (and the property) am in Dallas and Dan is in Chicago, he was able to give me extremely objective and useful advice that, I, as a first time buyer found invaluable. He worked with my real estate agent to ensure that my deal was kosher, and when the builder proved to be difficult, Dan stepped in to give great advice and push for the win for me, which ended with me getting the house of my dreams and an extremely great deal on the mortgage.

Through out the process, Dan felt more like family; he cared more about getting me what I wanted and was best for my current situation, and less about making money off the deal. His knowledge about the mortgage process is beyond reproach and his empathy creates that extra piece that you want in someone taking care of such an important phase in your life.

I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase their next home. “

“One of the smoothest closings ever! Excellent results and a very happy client. Look forward to working together again soon!”

“Dan was a huge help to us throughout our home-buying process.  As first time home buyers, we had no idea what to expect or what we would need to be prepared for.  It could be easy to be overwhelmed by the whole process, but Dan was great to always take as much time as we needed to explain everything and sure we understood every step of the way. Dan was extremely fast and very responsive when we needed answers — even on nights and weekends.  This was a huge help because we had a fast closing date, and Dan really went beyond to make sure everything got done to meet our closing date.

We loved working with Dan Fogel, and would absolutely recommend him to anybody.”

Robert and Megan Anderson
First Time Home Buyers, Chicago, IL

“As a Realtor, I rely on mortgage lenders to process the loan on time allowing for a closing on the contract’s date. Dan was able to approve and grant a loan in a tricky situation for my Buyer and got the deal closed on time. Even more, he communicated all along the way to keep all parties appraised of the status”

“Can you list 5 iPhone apps that save you money and make your life easier? Now, think of 5 PEOPLE who save you money and make your life easier…who are they? If Dan Fogel isn’t in your TOP 5…he should be. As a commercial real estate professional, I know first-hand the value a great mortgage broker brings to a transaction. Dan not only finds the best financial loan terms for his clients, but he also makes the financing process seamless and easy. For almost ten years, I’ve confidently recommended Dan’s service to my family and friends. Dan consistently finds opportunities to save his clients real money, and makes the process of financing real estate simple and painless. Dan’s like the “scandit” iPhone app…but for your mortgage!”

“Dan is extremely knowledgeable of the mortgage industry and I view Dan as an ongoing partner and not just a provider who is interested in helping with a single transaction. He closely monitors your personal situation and needs and is always there when you need him and proactively reaches out when he has an opportunity for you to consider. Highly recommend Dan without reservation.”

Dan Spiegel

“I have engaged Dan many times over the past ten plus years to help with our mortgage needs and have found him to be very knowledgeable, responsive and able to provide highly competitive rates.  I highly recommend Dan.”

Gregory Scrine
Managing Principal at GE Healthcare Performance Solutions

“I first met Daniel when I moved back to Chicago in 2001. He helped me to finance my condo and setup a temporary “bridge loan”. Since then Daniel has probably refinanced my mortgage at least 5 times now. I’ve referred all my friends and many co-workers to him over the years and they have all been consistently pleased. Daniel always finds the best mortgage products and is consistently able to find creative solutions to even the more challenging real-estate projects that my friends have engaged him in. I whole-heartedly endorse Daniel.”

Ryan H.

 

“After being very satisfied with Dan Fogel and his team the first time around, I used them again just a few months later when I refinanced.  Dan and his team again exceeded my expectations.  He personally showed up at my closing due to my request, which was good because he was able to actually negotiate more favorable terms with the closer in a couple of areas, including a lower initial escrow payment.  He also did a nice job clarifying a few things for me and the closer.”

“I have been aggressively referring clients to Dan for mortgage services for the past 9 months and couldn’t be happier. He is very hands on with the clients and in communicating back to me on progress. If I were in need of a mortgage specialist, I know I would contact Dan.”
