Mortgage Banker


Connor Binnig is a Mortgage Banker with The Federal Savings Bank and is passionate about serving the mortgage needs of his customers. Connor graduated from the University of Southern California with a joint degree in International Finance and International Relations and a minor in Middle East Studies. While at USC, he was a member of the USC Varsity Rugby Team and Naval ROTC program. He also spent a semester abroad at the American University in Cairo, Egypt.

Prior to graduation, Connor was selected for the demanding United States Navy SEAL program. He attended Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL Officer selection, before ultimately suffering a severe knee injury that ended his training. Following graduation, Connor was commissioned an Ensign in the Navy and served as an Aviation Officer in Pensacola, FL. In his final duty assignment, he served as the Assistant Operations Officer for the Helicopter Instructor Training Unit (HITU) at Naval Air Station Whiting Field. Connor’s discipline and attention to detail mindset provided a smooth transition to mortgage lending at The Federal Savings Bank.

Connor continues his passion for serving others by providing his clients exemplary service for their mortgage lending needs. Capable of lending on Primary Residence, 2nd Vacation Homes, and Investment Properties in all 50 states, he is focused on serving his fellow veterans with any mortgage need. Additionally, Connor’s passion and experience extend to working with first time home buyers and move-up home buyers to help them optimize their mortgage as part of their comprehensive financial plan.

Coming from a military background and with experience in operations, Connor understands the intricacies and logistics of the mortgage process, from origination to close. Securing the “American Dream” and acquiring a home is the largest financial investment most Americans make. Connor is driven to ensure this purchase is handled in an organized and efficient manner. As the circumstances, goals, and ambitions of no two borrowers are the same, Connor focuses on tailoring mortgage solutions to each individual applicant. He measures his success not just in the closing of a loan, but also in the cultivation of positive, long-term relationships with his clients and a lifetime of referrals.

Connor lives in Chicago, and continues to play rugby in the area. He also enjoys traveling both domestically and abroad and has spent time in numerous areas of North and East Africa, the Middle East, and East Asia.


Connor put together a loan and property closing that was most sensible for my unique situation and limitations. His bank's relationships opened the door to my new home where other mainstream banks could not have. He and his team provided timely service with transparency of all specifics, which made a stressful process much more comfortable. Thank you Connor and FSB for a job well done.

We could not have asked for a better mortgage banker to help us purchase our first home. Connor Binnig led us through the VA mortgage process efficiently and with the utmost professionalism. His commitment to our journey allowed us to close on our first home with confidence. Thanks Connor!

Connor was knowledgeable about the market and the procedures required to get to the closing with few if any delays. He was also very responsive and easy to work with. I would not hesitate to use him again on a refinance or a new mortgage.

Our overall mortgage experience with The Federal Savings Bank was exceptional, a large part due to Connor Binnig’s customer service and attention to detail. Not only is he is one of the most thorough people I have worked with, but he has a “can do, make it happen attitude" that sets him apart in his field. I’d recommend Connor to anyone looking for a strong mortgage banker.
