Senior Vice President


Scroll down to see what Jack's past clients have said about their mortgage experience.

Jack Amberg has been a mortgage banker with The Federal Savings bank for 5 years. During these short 5 years, he has risen from rookie of the year in 2012 to Senior Vice President and top 5% producer of bankers nationwide, because he closes loans.

Jack graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point with a Bachelor of Science in Leadership. He spent 26 years in the US Army serving this great nation. His experience, work ethic and constant desire to learn, helps him provide a seamless mortgage experience to his clients. Jack is a certified VA loan specialist and continually works with his processors, underwriters, and closers to provide top notch customer service. Jack is also able to help borrowers in all 50 states with every residential loan product available. He sees his work helping clients achieve their dream of home ownership as an extension of his service to the nation. Jack’s philosophy as a banker can be summed up in three points:

1. Close the loan as quickly and smoothly as possible, Mission Focus

2. Serving borrowers and all parties involved in the transaction

3. Honored and humbled to be a part of the largest purchase that 99% of us make in our lives.

Outside of work, Jack remains passionate about helping Veterans. He meets with city, county and state officials on behalf of Veterans to ensure he is up to date on the best way to serve vets as they pursue the dream of homeownership as well as advising them on policy that empowers and benefits Veterans. He is an active member of the American Legion, American Legion Riders, Disabled American Veterans and The Veterans of Foreign Wars.

Jack serves his community and continues to assist Veterans transitioning to civilian life.

Very knowledgeable and yet able to describe to a non-finance person like me; even my realtor was impressed with his responsiveness and interest; closing money required was even less than expected.

Jack was an answer to our prayers. He was able to assist us from the very beginning of the home purchase process and stayed with us until the very end! He was extremely helpful in explaining the finance details to us all along the way. His patience and knowledge was a huge gift to us! We would recommend Jack to everyone who is looking for help with financing!

Jack did a great job assisting my family in purchasing our first home. He was knowledgeable and patient in walking us through this complicated process. As he is a fellow US military veteran, it was reassuring to have someone familiar with the added requirements of the VA Home Loan program.

- Downers Grove, IL
Jack helped my wife and me purchase a home in Cincinnati using a VA loan. He is completely knowledgeable of the entire process and presented options to us for the loan that fit our situation. It was NOT a take it or leave it loan. His weekly updates kept me informed the whole way through. If I was busy, then he told my wife what was happening. He really knows how to explain things so that non-banking people can understand. He worked with my realtor, too; she was impressed with his knowledge. He has a great team working for him. I highly recommend him!!

Jack was amazing thru the whole process. He answered all my questions using words I could understand and always responded very quickly. If I am ever in the market again I will definitely give him a call.

Jack was extremely knowledgeable in the VA and a veteran of the military as well. He worked around my schedule working downtown and coming to my house to meet with my wife and I. He was able to break the loan and financial speak down to dummy it down for us. My closing costs were much lower than anticipated and made us even less stressed. I would recommend Jack to everyone looking to get a loan military or not.

- Jim and Sarah
Jack Amberg is a class act and a fantastic loan officer. He worked a logistically difficult situation for me while keeping all the pressure and stress off my wife and I while I was deployed to the Middle East. Jack is a great guy.

Jack Amberg went beyond any experience we've had with securing a home loan. Although we were never "in person", he met all of the requirements for putting together the paperwork in a timely and understandable manner. He offered us options to consider that we had not been aware of before, and that was very helpful

- The Johnsons
Jack and Lorraine were great in making sure the process went smoothly. We closed on time and I will reccomend them to anyone needing a loan. Thanks so much.

Jack has beyond exceeded my expectations when it came to purchasing a homes. He truly cares about his clients and doing what is best for them. He was always able to help with any question, big or small, and I value his opinion on what is best for my purchase and my family.

This is now the 2nd time I have used Jack and I wouldn't even listen to any other person in the industry. Our home has taken a while to sell, and he made sure to keep in touch to let us know that he had not forgotten us. Along with sending monthly greeting cards and a lottery ticket, just in case.

Jack and his team beyond exceeded expectations and I have kept every card he has given me. I will be an advocate of his for anyone I hear of looking to purchase a home.

I cannot speak highly enough with regard to Mr. Jack Amberg. The consummate professional demonstrating an exceptional mastery of skills. Consistently exceeds all standards and expectations. Highly adept with systematically evaluating options in terms of consequences. Makes effective use of time and respects the time of others. He avoids confusing activity with accomplishment. Sees the big picture and effectively solves problems rather than symptoms. With little surprise, Jack, displays an innate ability to stimulate others into action. An even-keeled solution seeker who takes the initiative! Jack handles situations in a calm, objective manner and demonstrates a polished etiquette. Jack displays a high degree of honesty, loyalty and integrity. I feel fortunate to have not only had the distinct pleasure of working with him, but of making his acquaintance. Truly an asset for The Federal Savings Bank if not a pillar of its strength and success.
