Born in Michigan to a family who were mostly entrepreneurs, Cody was introduced to the business world and the importance of service at an early age. After graduating from Michigan State University in 2001, Cody ventured off to Chicago to begin his career. He joined a well-respected Mortgage company in 2002 and hasn’t looked back. He is a top producing loan originator and has maintained top industry numbers despite the ups and downs of the housing market. Cody has been in the industry through thick and thin for 12 years and has been involved in close to 1,000 transactions. It is Cody's belief the most important characteristic a Mortgage Originator should possess is the ability to understand what the desires and interests of his clients are, and to convert those expectations into a reality. Your needs are surpassed, through integrity, professionalism, honesty, customer service, and with a whole lot of passion. Cody is dedicated to acting as a wealth of information; being the first to offer referrals and insight to help each person through their purchase or refinance. This approach has proven to be successful with his business being nearly all referral based. In addition to his outside mortgage business, Cody has been heavily involved with the marketing and sales of real estate developments. In addition, he is an active investor in real estate himself and is happy to offer his firsthand knowledge and experience, helping clients understand how to become a successful and savvy real estate investor. His wide range of experience with various real estate transactions, combined with his high level of expertise, customer service and ongoing communication will guarantee you an above and beyond experience. When he is not working, Cody is traveling, hiking, snowboarding, camping, playing hockey, watching live music, or spending time with friends and family. He works exclusively with borrowers in Oregon and Illinois; from first time borrowers, developers, million dollar homes and investment oriented clients. No matter what your mortgage needs may be, Cody will be there for you every step of the way and always looks forward to building and maintaining long lasting relationships with his clients.
