Video Testimonials


"Having purchased three homes, I have gone through the mortgage financing and refinancing process multiple times. Working with Jim Pope was better than anything I had previously experienced by a significant margin.

Prior to working with Jim, all of the interactions I had with lenders carried a negative undercurrent of having to jump through hoops for underwriters that had to justify their existence by asking for insignificant details. Jim and his team at Wintrust Mortgage had more refined customer service approach, simply saying that some of the guidelines that banks had to work within had changed, but we should be fine if you provide this information. When an additional detail or two were needed from my wife and I, it was simply stated that the underwriter had a couple of simple clarification questions.

Given my past experience with these processes, I nearly forgot how many moving parts there are that need to be coordinated. They took my complex financing scenario and made it appear simple and seamless.

It is a testament to the exceptional job done (by) Jim Pope and his team."

-Paul R.

"We recently applied for a mortgage with your company and ended up closing on our new home on April 1.

I have bought multiple homes, condos and commercial properties in the past and this was, by far, the simplest and smoothest process I've encountered. Considering the loan was through VA that's unbelievable in itself.

You set the expectation, requested documents and we were set to close. There were no surprises and closing was on the scheduled date and only took an hour.

You and your team were amazing and made everything appear so simple. I'd be honored to recommend you and your team to anyone buying a new home. "

-Tina P.

"Having been through the mortgage process while observing its many challenges, I realized that not all lenders are created equal. I have known Jim personally and professionally for years, so am well aware of his abilities which are continually confirmed from our other mutual connections.

Recently when I learned that one of my associates was preparing to purchase a new home, I immediately connected her with Jim Pope. Of course Jim was very responsive in following through, and the feedback I received was fantastic. Jim had fluently offered options unique to her particular situation which other lenders hadn't even considered, making sure she would be in the best position possible.

It is because of his knowledge and awareness that makes Jim an expert in his field, and in turn provides a level of service that is an extension of my own. I will continue to refer friends and associates to meet with Jim so that they can receive the best advice possible while making a new home purchase."

-Dan S.
