I would definitely recommend Alex. He walked us through the whole process and made purchasing a home a very easy after dealing with two very difficult companies before finding him. He was very helpful during the entire process. Whenever we had an issue Alex was always a phone call away, and he actually answered it even if it was after 5pm. He gave us constant updates and kept us in the loop through the entire process. He was a pleasure to work with.

Alex was very helpful during the entire process. He took the time out to explain every step of the loan process from start to finish. Every time that I had an issue Alex was always a phone call away, and he actually answered it. No voice mail, which gave my wife some piece of mind. He did a great job, and I would recommend him to anyone.

I was looking for a home in the Chicago area and because of my current credit situation I looked to my father to apply for the loan instead of applying myself. My father was a preferred customer at Bank of America and according to our loan officer there, it was a sure deal that the loan would be approved. After a long period of time and very little communication the loan was declined with no immediate explanation. After that whole mess, I was in contact with Alex Romo, not only did he get an approval but he helped me get my credit in line and I was approved by myself. I highly recommend that anyone looking to get a home loan contact Alex. He knows the mortgage process inside and out.

My home loan was not an easy process and Alex helped us from start to finish, even showing up at the closing on Christmas Eve. We already had a condo we owned and were shopping for a home in Park Ridge. Alex reviewed our financials and guided us on a plan that increased our credit score and helped us qualify for a FHA home loan in about 6 weeks.

Once we did get pre-approved, Alex worked closely with us throughout the whole process. We executed the process from contract to close in 5 weeks, which is a pretty amazing feat. Alex does more than dot i's and cross t's, he is a stickler for detail all in the interest of delivering for his client. He also is very good at communicating, he will respond to phone calls and emails very promptly. This was very important for me.

I highly recommend Alex for all your mortgage needs.

Alex really does go above and beyond in helping you get the mortgage that is right for you and your family. He is knowledgeable and more importantly he takes the time to EXPLAIN the often times too wordy jargon that is mortgage language.

Alex has been a pleasure to work with on a number of legal transactions. His extensive knowledge, initiative, responsiveness, and hard work are only overshadowed by his honesty and integrity. I wouldn't hesitate to refer any of my clients to Alex for their borrowing needs!

Alex was very Helpful, and was the only person that was able to get me approved. many others tried but just couldn’t close the deal. Thanks Alex

When we found a home at the beginning of January 2014, due to some pressing situations, Alex was certain we could close at the end of the month. And we did!!!! He was actually ready to close a week earlier. His knowledge of the market and about upcoming rule changes to home financing were very helpful for us to decide to buy a home. I would certainly recommend him to anyone looking to finance a home

I got my pre-approval mortgage loan through Alex Romo. After Wells Fargo failed in get in contact with me on my pre-approval for a hot property which had a lot of interest and was very time sensitive. Alex Romo was professional, efficient and knowledgeable of all types of loans. He always responded to my calls throughout the whole process and was key in helping to close on my property by offering suggestions to my attorney and pushing her to stay on top of things.

I also, referred Alex Romo to my sister for a home loan and he did great on her closing process as well. She was very satisfied

Alex is very professional as a loan originator for The Federal Savings Bank. He follows up with his clients and attends all his closings. I would feel comfortable in recommending him to my follow colleagues.
