Ted Rood graduated from Iowa State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Ceramic Engineering. After working in marketing and sales for 20 years, Ted became a mortgage loan officer in 2000, initially helping Missouri clients before moving to national lending in 2007.

Now in his 20th year of mortgage lending, Ted specializes in buyer education and following bond markets to give his clients insight on rates' direction. He explains the loan process clearly to clients, ensuring they understand all the pieces of their "loan jigsaw puzzle." He has been named a 5 Star Lender by 5 Star Awards every year from 2012-2019, and his clients have posted 59 positive Zillow reviews. Ted's dedication to customer service means he often responds to clients' inquiries on weekends or late evenings, much to their surprise and delight.

Ted has lived in O'Fallon, MO since 1987, with his wife of 33 years. His 4 grandchildren live nearby and are delighted in having Ted chase them around the yard. He has been a service coordinator at his church for 10 years and took Sunday services to a nearby nursing home for 13 years. He loves to travel, spending two weeks on Kaua'i in 2014 was his dream vacation.
