Vice President


  • FHA 203k Specialist
Art grew up in Wellesley, MA. He received a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from the University of Notre Dame. After graduation he lived in Boston, and was the radio play by play voice of the Boston University Terriers from 1976 to 1979. Art moved to Chicago in 1979, and became an account executive for several office product companies.

In 2012, Art joined The Federal Savings Bank. By joining one of the most professional, experienced, and financially sound lenders in America today, Art is able to provide the client with the best possible service at some of the lowest interest rates in the marketplace. The Federal Savings Bank has many advantages over both mortgage brokers and typical retail banks. The Federal Savings Bank does everything “in house”—from the initial client consultation to the personal delivery of the loan closing check. This allows us to have more control over the entire lending process—we are not at the mercy of a third party for these services. Furthermore, we have access to wholesale rates which are lower than rates quoted by both mortgage brokers and retail banks. 
“Because 100% of my business comes from referrals, it is my promise to make these referral sources proud that they referred me to their clients and friends. The finest compliment I can ever receive is a referral from a real estate associate, trusted adviser, or previous client.”


Mr. Miller I wanted to let you know that Art Moher did an outstanding job getting our Re-Fi done here in Iowa. I have done business with Art in the past and wanted to do more business in the future. I was though concerned about the distance issue and doing a remote close. As it turned out finishing the closing this week I would not have done it any other way.

Art got us all of the necessary paperwork in advance and had us do a remote close with a Notary who met us at a coffee shop. The Notary was great and Art was available if there were any issues with the closing. Everything went like clockwork and we were done in less than an hour. If any prospective clients have concerns about an out of state remote close they should put those concerns behind them. Art and Federal Savings make it very efficient and helped my family save money.

Thanks for your service and Art is a very valued provider and friend.

Our office is always very pleased to refer Mr. Art Moher and the Federal Savings Bank to our clients as they routinely receive excellent service and very competitive interest rates. The lines of communication are always open and calls are responded to quickly and meaningfully. In addition, Art is always a most positive and affirming personality and he provides a solid base in our shaky financial environment.

Mr. Miller:

I am writing you in reference to my recent experience working with Art Moher on my home purchase in June.

In my second go-around with securing a loan with Art, it was again a seamless and easy process.

Art was knowledgeable, reasonable and diligent throughout the entire process. I had little to worry about and he handled everything with immense professionalism.

Leading up to the close, Art had made requests for information that I made readily available and he took everything and made it work. His attention to detail was a huge factor in making this experience smooth.

I was faced with a rush on my close, and Art was able to secure my loan in 40 days. At the close, there were no snags, no troubles, and everything could not have gone better.

I will absolutely recommend Art to any of my friends or colleagues who may be in need of a loan.

I cannot say enough about what a positive experience I had thanks to Art’s work.

Please know, you have a customer for life and I look forward to working with him again.

Thank you and have a great evening.

This is a very timely note.

Art Moher was with my wife and I at our closing for our new house in Lakeview this past Friday. He could not have been more responsive and easier to work with even though we put him under a tight timeline. Long story short, our closing got moved up by a month shortly after we hired Art but it was never an issue.

My wife and our two little boys have been camping out with my in-laws in the suburbs during this transition period from condo to home and the last thing we wanted to worry about was the mortgage getting squared away, details, etc. We never had to.

Art was engaged from start to finish and short timelines were never an issue. This in addition to every note being cordial requests and responses as opposed to the short and snippy notes we got from Guaranteed Rate who took forever to do anything on our last refi.

Thanks again and I hope that I will have a chance to work with you on equally important real estate issues for The Federal Savings Bank.

We would like to express our gratitude to Art Moher and The Federal Savings Bank for facilitating a wonderful home buying experience. As first time homebuyers, we were initially overwhelmed by the process and did not know where to begin. Art walked us through the entire process from application to closing and answered all our questions along the way. Not only did Art obtain an outstanding rate, he enabled a painless and stress free application and approval. Art was exceptionally responsive, accommodated our schedules, and even met with us on the weekend and outside of business hours. We give Art Moher and the Federal Savings Bank our highest recommendation to any prospective home buyers, and should we ever move again in the future, Art will be the first person we call.

Art is great, and this is my second loan with him. His professionalism, knowledge and expertise made the process as smooth as possible. I would recommend him tenfold.

I am writing you to let you know what a pleasure it has been working with Art Moher for the past seven years. All of our deals, including the first one at 1155 West Armitage Avenue in July 2003, have been smooth. Art’s professionalism, integrity, current banking knowledge and overall customer service are first rate. He is always prompt and attends all of his closings.

Whenever I work with a client who asks for a mortgage banker referral, Art Moher has earned his place at the top of my referral list. He is very customer driven and genuinely cares about helping his clients meet their lending needs. Art has demonstrated his ability to cultivate clients for life!

I wanted to drop you a brief note to make you aware of the wonderful experience that my wife and I had recently in securing a loan from your firm in attaining our "dream home" in Hinsdale. Art Moher, whom I not only consider a good friend, but also a tremendous business partner and service provider, guided us through this very difficult process from day 1 insuring that the transaction went as smooth as possible.

Considering that we had just welcomed twin boys to go along with our 20 month-old daughter, we obviously were consumed with details in our personal life, let alone having to go through the meticulous process of applying for a jumbo loan that required several checks and balances of the application. From the very start, Art and your organization provided consultation, assurance and a feeling of peace of mind that I believe we could not have gotten anywhere else considering our current situation.

Typically mortgage lenders treat you as a number. They secure the business and they are on to the next customer. Art was essentially part of the family as he was in constant contact with both buyer/seller attorneys, real estate agents, etc. to insure that all details were covered and to address and answer any questions and concerns coming from all parties. His prompt service helped expedite the process as we were also in a difficult position as we had just sold our home in Chicago and needed to purchase something in the suburbs rather quickly.

From the time that we struck our relationship during a refinance exercise five years ago, I have continued to refer The Federal Savings Bank (and Art Moher) to all of my friends and acquaintances.

Thank you.

Art Moher worked with us to purchase a 3 unit property in Chicago. The purchase was our first investment property and we had a lot of questions when we started the process. Art was knowledgeable and shepherded us through the pre-approval, approval and closing. His diligent effort, clear communication and proactive planning made the purchase successful. We would wholeheartedly recommend Art to anyone looking to purchase a multi-unit property.
