By having my options explained to me, I got my questions answered, and gained the confidence I needed to make the right decision.

I cannot say enough good things about Gary Lind and the entire Federal Savings Bank team! He went above and beyond countless times and helped me to get into the best option. If I am ever asked who to use for mortgages by anyone, my immediate answer will be Gary Lind.

Gary made my refinance a worry free process. From start to finish he was quick to answer questions. I was very satisfied with his knowledge on the subjects I requested. Before I knew it my refinance was completed. I would recommend Gary and the Federal Savings Bank for anyone looking to do a quick no hassle refinance.

I really appreciate all the help I got from Gary. My 1st home buying would have not as pleasant without his help. He is definitely who I want to deal with when I buy my next home. Not many could have pulled everything together so quickly.

The Federal Savings Bank knew what they were doing when they hired Gary E. Lind from Naperville, Il. I was calling mortgage companies to get prices and interest. I almost deleted his voice mail thinking another organization was giving me “the best deal” for my refinance of my 30 year mortgage.

I also felt that Gary explained EVERYTHING. I felt he was a family member checking that my refinance was the best available.

I am in a wheelchair and he did all the running around for me. I did all the work needed from my computer and his assistants made sure I had my forms filled out properly. Gary even came by to pick up a form that I needed my original signature on.

Everything was done as expected. No surprises! I have never closed on a refinance, that didn’t end up costing me more money than I expected. Thank you Gary! Your demeanor and attitude toward people shows as genuine. A person I could trust ALWAYS! Pick him as your Mortgage Banker. I am happy I did.

I have gone through more than a few home financing and refinancing closings. Finding Gary and dealing with his team of experts was a refreshing change. I was more than pleased at the speed of this process. All of the paper work was straightforward and reasonable. Gary walked me through questions I had on terminology and formal documents. Gary and his associates were always available within minutes for my questions and comments. When it came to certain choices Gary proved his experience by explaining pros and cons. I strongly recommend Gary and his associates as excellence in performance is certainly their credo.

As a real estate broker, closings are near and dear to my heart. Whenever a Purchaser brings in their own mortgage lender, I’m concerned as to the skill, experience and ability of that lender to bring about a closing in spite of all the inherent roadblocks involved in this process. I was impressed and relieved with the way this transaction was handled. The Purchaser had complete faith in you, and it was well founded. Thanks for your diligence in this deal. I look forward to working with you in the near future.

In just a little over three years, Gary helped me grow my apartment business from 40 units to 108 units. During that time, you obtained financing for primary residence, including getting me two additional lines of credit, and eight apartment building loans. I’ve been very impressed with Gary’s customer commitment right from the start of our relationship. You’ve always been accessible when I’ve needed your services. He doesn’t just don’t get the job done, he makes sure that it is done correctly and professionally, no matter how long it takes or how much work it is for him. I really admire that.

The favorable financing that you arranged for us has not only allowed me to retire, but it has given us monthly cash flow that allows us to travel, financially help our children with college tuition, etc., and easily covers any other expense we have. It’s unbelievable!!! You have truly put us more than twenty years ahead of any financial expectations we had. Even though I’ve thanked you for this before, I feel the time is right to say it again…Thanks!!! And as I’ve said, I’m looking forward to doing more business with you in the future.
