Joey Mathews is an Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran of the United States Marine Corps Reserve. He was trained in artillery and served in Iraq as a provisional Military Police Marine. During his time in the Marines, he also worked as a Marine Corps recruiter’s assistant in Chicago Heights, Illinois. He quickly realized that his passion was not with recruiting, but helping people. Joey followed his passion and made a change to start working in the mortgage lending industry in 2005. However, after a short but successful transition into the mortgage lending industry, he was called to active duty to fight in the war on terrorism. After his service, Joey left the Marine Corps, and attended the University of Illinois at Chicago where he graduated cum laude with a degree in political science focusing on pre-law. Upon graduating, he realized he didn’t have the same excitement for law as he did for helping people realize their dream of homeownership, and came back to the mortgage banking industry.

Joey comes to The Federal Savings Bank after several years of exponential growth of his business and helping his borrowers. He joined the bank because it gives him the opportunity to help more potential borrowers across the country meet their financial needs. He takes great pride in being able to help his clients purchase their dream home or refinance their existing one. Because of his passion for helping others, he is a consistently a high-level producer, and works to ensure a smooth loan process from application to close. He works hard to make sure his clients not only understand their loan, but that they have received the highest level of customer service throughout their experience.

Joey lives in Chicago with his wife Alisa and their two children Theo and Noelle. He is also a full-time firefighter in a near west suburb of Chicago. Outside of his work, his family enjoys traveling to Phoenix and the San Francisco bay area to visit family. As avid hikers, they also enjoy finding new trails in these areas whenever they visit.


Recently my wife and I approached your bank for a refinance loan on our home. Joey Matthews was walking point for us during the process. It is very rare in your industry where an employee takes a professional and personal stake in the process. His team operated seamless. The ability to explain things in real time the person-to-person communication was more than one could ask for. He helped us with the most important asset we own for the last 25 years to save us money. From the bottom of our hearts, we are grateful, and it is good to know that real people like Joey and his team exist - a diamond in a coal mine for sure.

Joey Matthews has been nothing less than excellent in processing all of our loan requests. It has been a pleasure working with such a knowledgeable and experienced man. He leaves nothing to chance and gives us a heads up prior to each upcoming event. Whenever we call and had a question, he was always on the line and available. As long as we have known him, he has always made himself available. My wife and I will do all of our future banking of this nature with him - a totally satisfied customer. Job well done!

I just want to thank you for being so awesome and easy to work with. I will continue to recommend you to everyone I know who is looking to buy a house, because you were so great to work with. Our attorney had originally said to work with another lender over you because they had experience with them, which we clearly ignored. Then last week they sent us a note saying you guys were definitely the better decision and that in all the years they've been doing this, 30+ years, they've never had it done so quickly or easily!!! So I just wanted to say, thank you.

Joey and his team were magnificent. I bought a house in 2016 with a different banker and it was absolutely miserable. I ended up getting hosed in closing costs and there was a lot of run around during the whole process. This time, it was a painless endeavor and Joey and his team were professional, reassuring, and ensured that I didn’t pay a single cent that wasn’t necessary. I’ll definitely be recommending them to my friends and family! Keep up the awesome work!
