Mary Cazares

Assistant Sales Manager


Mary A. Cazares was born and raised in Chicago. At a young age, Mary knew she wanted to work somewhere in the Real Estate market. She landed her feet in the mortgage industry as a Junior Loan Officer when she was just a senior in high school. Continuing the tradition of a strong work ethic that she inherited from her mother and grandmother, she worked two jobs while finishing her undergraduate at The University of Illinois at Chicago. There, she went on to receive a double major in Business Management and Finance with an emphasis on Investment Analysis. After obtaining her degrees, she used her networking skills to work her way to top companies in the mortgage industry, eventually landing a management position that would showcase her skills both in sales and leadership.

Mary has over ten years’ experience working in a Consumer Direct platform and is extremely well versed in just about every loan product, mortgage guideline, client type, and state requirement in today’s market place. Her financial analytical skills and vast mortgage knowledge allow her to provide the maximum benefit to her clients while explaining every aspect of their loan structure in an easily understood manner. Her relentless positivity allows her to excel as a leader and as a problem solver for her clients and her teammates at TFSB.

Outside of work, Mary has a philosophy of “work hard - play hard”. Maintaining a balance of work, play, physical health, and quality relationships is what helps keep her energy and passion at extremely high levels. She values her family and circle of close friends, most of whom she’s known from childhood. She loves traveling to new destinations, spending time outdoors, and watching and playing sports (especially basketball, volleyball, and fast pitch softball). She also enjoys trying new activities; some of her latest hobbies include riding her motorcycle, flying drones, bikram yoga and mixed martial arts.

Many Thanks to Mary and her team for achieving the near impossible. This mortgage was a spontaneous decision due to the lack of rental options when we were looking for a home for a new job out of state. I have worked with Mary previously on a loan on my home in Colorado. We only had 4 weeks from the contract date and then Hurricane Matthew threatened the coast of Florida directly where this home was. Even with the delay and added work from the near miss, Mary and her team pulled this closing on time with no time to spare. Myself and my family are very grateful for the numerous emails and phone conversations after hours to keep me on top of my to do list and questions. So Many Thanks!!!!!

After trying 3 other agencies for refinancing, Federal Savings Bank came through for me. Positive points:
- Listening to my concerns
- Patiently waiting through the process of getting "hard to obtain" paper from Fidelity.
- Keeping me inform of what going on at all time.
- Lock and extended lock rate without issue, best rate!
- Agent is prompt, always available, hand holding when necessary, and nice to work with.
- Ease of closing, on-time as promise.
Highly recommended.
