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 realized he had a significant passion for helping people. Joey followed his heart and moved into the mortgage industry in 2005. 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’s time at The Federal Savings Bank has allowed for 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 makes every effort to ensure his clients not only understand their loan, but that they have received the highest level of customer service throughout their experience.

Joey splits time between Chicago and Phoenix with his wife Alisa and their three children Theo, Noelle, and Tristan. He is a retired firefighter from the Cicero (IL) IAFF Local 717. Outside of his work, his family enjoys traveling throughout the world with his beautiful bride. Joey is an avid hiker, has a weird problem that makes him dance whenever he hears music, and loves spending time in the rough as the world’s worst golfer.
