It is ultimately YOUR decision when purchasing a home or refinancing your current loan. Dan will listen to your needs and help guide you through the loan process to accommodate what is best for you and your family. Dan works with the Top 10% of Realtors in the Chicagoland area. This allows him to recommend local realtors that will also have the client’s best interests in mind. He believes in providing his clients with a detailed financial plan to manage their home loan and ensure their mortgage is the foundation of their overall financial goals. For instance, even the wealthiest of clients choose the lowest down payment option available as they understand earning 0% on their home equity may not be the best use of their money. For others, getting rid of the mortgage is their ultimate goal. Dan will make sure you understand the “WHY” behind your mortgage plan.
Dan lives in Palatine, IL with his wife Debbie of more than 30 outstanding years! He had the pleasure of getting both his boys into mortgages on their homes. This leaves time to finally enjoy playing golf, softball, exercising and bowling with his wife. Dan also enjoys walking the neighborhood with the family Golden Retriever. However, nothing gives Dan more pleasure than seeing the excited looks on the faces of his clients getting the keys to their new home after a smooth home transaction.
I would like to strongly recommend, Mr. Daniel Schwellenbach, a Loan Officer for The Federal Savings Bank. Dan is a very dedicated individual who works for his clients and follows through on every part of the process that is under his purvey. Dan is extremely knowledgeable with the regulations and requirements needed to qualify a borrower and also counsel them, especially for Veterans seeking to utilize a VA Loan. Dan works his job to the convenience of the buyer and will leave no stone unturned as he has done countless times before.
Always active, Dan is vigilant in keeping up with the industry and being sure to read up on potential changes in lending requirements and with making sure all around him are as versed with the changes as he is. Dan recognizes the importance of getting the loan to close and will take all necessary steps to ensure it happens. As a Combat Veteran with multiple deployments, I was able to refinance my home from afar without any concerns or unwarranted stress thanks to Dan’s remarkable work ethic. He closely follows every step of the transaction and will call the clients and their agents promptly with information that may either require attention or to just inform of the progress.
I cannot speak highly enough of Dan’s professionalism and dedication. I have no doubt that any future clients that choose to use Dan as their Mortgage Banker would feel the same way.
The transaction was handled professionally and efficiently by Dan from start to finish. Staff was responsive and helpful.
They were just outstanding in every way. I couldn't recommend them more. Dan Schwellenbach, the broker, was outstanding. Their follow through on everything was stellar.
I admire him for his creative work and his willingness to "give first".
You would be doing yourself a favor to align yourself with Dan as I have.
It was a good experience working with Dan. I think Dan closely monitored the information we needed to make the loan go through quickly and smoothly.
Dan Schwellenbach went through the whole process. He went out of his way to explain it, and answer my questions. He went to bat for us on the appraisal, which came when we did not expect it to. He was a great advocate for me, the consumer.
Dan was helpful. He came to our house and walked us through all the paperwork. He gave us an option where we wanted to close, and it ended up being in the same building where I work. It was very easy and very quick.
Dan Schwellenbach was extremely helpful. This is my third mortgage with him. We had a fairly difficult situation and they worked through it. He is very professional and he works very hard to make sure our transactions always go perfectly.
It was a pleasure working with Dan Schwellenbach to close on my new home. The process could not have been smoother!
I had done a closing with Dan before. I appreciated that he contacted me. I liked the way he would send messages. He would email the terms, but then send a video of himself explaining some of the details in the terms. I thought that was a good use of technology. I just think he did everything that he said he would do, and it ended up saving me money.
If you need a mortgage and want a professional who will look out for your best interest, I highly recommend Dan Schwellenbach. Not only is he one of the most knowledgeable mortgage professionals I know, he and his team have also proven themselves to be trustworthy, experienced, courteous, and reliable.
I have known Dan for years even when he use to run more :-). He really does provide the type of service he states in his video. The first time I needed his services was when it came time for me to refinance due to my divorce in 2002. He assisted me during this difficult time so that my children and I were able to stay in our home. He helped me out by being clear, accurate, and informative. I did both a regular mortgage and HELOC with him. Now 10 years later I am back to refinance with him again. I did check around and found him to be very competitively priced. I have referred many friends and co-workers his way, whether by word of mouth or posting on Hewitt's internal service referral database. He looks at the individual's situation and in some cases has advised the mortgage wasn't a good financial move at the time even though would mean Dan didn't get "paid" then. This speaks to his integrity and viewpoint of wanting you as a customer for years to come not just "today's sale". Looking forward to when my oldest goes to him for her first mortgage.
We've worked with Dan in the past. He is a great mortgage loan officer. He's always done well by us, and always made sure we've got the best mortgage for what we've needed. He is fast and reliable. So far everything has been great.
Dan took only a short time to figure out what rates would save us money. We looked at some different options and figured out what would work best for my wife and I and get us the most savings.
