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. She also enjoys trying new activities; some of her latest hobbies include riding her motorcycle, flying drones, bikram yoga and mixed martial arts.

Mary Cazares was absolutely amazing. She went above and beyond in the process of securing our mortgage. Mary had our back when we were unsatisfied with the way our initial appraisal came back and without hesitation informed us what we needed to do to appeal the findings and kept on the VA til we received their new findings and the new figure. We will most definitely recommend Mary to friends and family that are in the market looking for a mortgage to purchase.

Mary Cazares is a very professional, knowledgeable, loan officer. I look forward to having a long relationship with her. Thanks for the great service!

- Michael B
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!!!!!

- Michael D

Our banker was the best! She took us by the hand and guided us every step of the way to make sure we always knew what was coming and prepared us for it. We couldn't have survived the stress of the underwriting process without her!

This was a very pleasant, efficient, and professional experience for us - one of the best we've ever had with a mortgage or refinancing. Mary Cazares was the best we've ever worked with and she helped us get it done before one of the LOCs closed out on us. Would recommend her highly to anyone!
