Chris Malizzio

Senior Vice President


Chris is a Senior Vice President in our Naperville, IL branch. He has 15 years of service dedicated to helping clients meet their financial goals. During that time he has been an Underwriter, an Operations manager, and for the last 9 years a Mortgage Banker. His diverse experience in all aspects of real estate lending and excellent communication skills help facilitate a smooth closing process and build a long-term relationship with his partners and clients.

The Federal Savings Bank is one of the largest privately held mortgage banks in the country. As a veteran owned and operated, FDIC insured bank, the entire lending process is completed in-house. We originate, process, underwrite, and fund loans with our own reserves. This allows our originators the ability to offer their clients a wide array of home financing options while maintaining that local banking feel. Our goal is to provide 100% client satisfaction and to be your mortgage banker for life.

Chris was born and raised in the western suburbs of Chicago were he currently resides with his wife Kate and their daughter Isabella. When Chris isn’t working, he’s following his favorite sports teams and spending time at his family lake house in Wisconsin out on the water.


As a retired Colonel in the United States Army and later a Senior Vice President of Union Bank and Trust Company, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, I want to express how well Mr. Chris Malizzio handled our application and completion of a VA Home Mortgage.

Over a few months we were able to complete the application and finalization of our VA loan. Mr. Malizzio explained every detail of the home loan. His calm and detail approach to all segments of the loan was very appreciated. We would recommend Mr. Malizzio and Federal Savings Bank with no hesitation.

Chris was always available to answer my questions or just let me know what was going on. We were very pleased with our experience.

We have financed and/or refinanced mortgage loans four or five times in our 36 years of marriage. This was the smoothest ever. The two we did previously under the current "Dodd-Frank" misery were such nightmares that we were really hesitant to try again. So, we were especially pleased with the way this went.

Chris is like a trusted friend. I'm confident in his honesty and believe he looks out for me in every process. I like the emails that lets me know where my paperwork is in the approval process. Thanks Chris!

Enjoyed working with the staff. They keep me up to date the entire way through the process. They're a very professional group!

Chris Malizzio was the best person we have ever had bar none! He worked so hard to get us the lowest rate possible and was continuously in tough with us by email or phone. Every company should have an employee like Chris but I am guessing he is what makes you so special.

- Michael M.
Chris was very professional, while taking the time to get to know us personally as well. (over the phone no less) We appreciate his willingness to answer the many questions we had with regard to: "feeling safe about the loan, no hidden fees, etc" Thank you!

Chris Malizzio was fantastic as a lender. He was very professional and communicated with me promptly and effectively throughout the entire loan process. I will be reaching out to him going forward on other real estate transactions. Nice work,’s been a pleasure doing business with you!

Chris and his team was outstanding and completely professional. Questions were always answered within a timely manner and always with courtesy and patience. The last place I did business with were slow in getting back to me. Chris and his group of people were like a breath of fresh air! I would highly recommend Chris to anyone that needed assistance in this area of finance.

Chris Malizzio was by far the best Loan Officer we've dealt with thus far. I appreciated the constant communication, his efforts to close in a timely manner and his attention to our needs and wants. I appreciated the fact that The Federal Savings Bank used an online system for submitting and signing. It made the process hassle free. Overall, I would highly recommend using The Federal Savings Bank on all future transactions.

Goooood Morning Chris! This is just to let you know I received the refund check via UPS a few minutes ago! Thank you sooooo much for making this refi process as stress free as possible. I wish I could have met you to give you a huge hug. It's still not out of the realm of possibility. We have family we come to visit on occasion....perhaps we can meet you for lunch! How 'bout that? Anyway, just wanted you to know how much we appreciate you!
