Aimee Renkes
VP of Mortgage Lending

I’ve been a licensed loan originator since 2005 and been featured as a mortgage industry expert by Bankrate.com, Yahoo! Finance, MSN Real Estate, Investopedia, NerdWallet, and Chicago Agent. I’m passionate about providing each client and referral partner a smooth, understandable and positive mortgage experience that inspires confidence and peace of mind.

Personally I’ve bought a Chicago condo and suburban home, played landlord for a year and then sold that condo. I use these experiences to put myself in your shoes and deliver excellent customer service. I want to earn trust and confidence and make sure you are taken care of while seamlessly closing your loan. It’s your home and future. It’s my profession and my passion to deliver results-oriented expertise.

I offer the full mortgage product line with as low as 3% down options, jumbo financing, FHA/VA, construction loans and mortgage insurance reduction strategies*. I have a 3-Step Client Process whereby I identify your goals and wants, collect your application via easy digital mortgage, and review together a total cost analysis of loan options for you to consider and use to make informed decisions about the right home and loan for you!

Born and raised in the north suburb of Grayslake, I have a degree in communications and business from Bradley University. After college I spent 14 years living in various Chicago north side neighborhoods before moving to the west suburb of Glen Ellyn in 2013 with my husband and three children Rosalindh, Bob and Tara.

I believe in giving back to my community and I’m involved with PTA, Cub Scouts, Cycle for Survival and Hephzibah Children’s Association. I love my Peloton and my weekly sand volleyball league, playing euchre regularly with my girlfriends and experimenting with new recipes for my family, although you would much prefer my husband’s chocolate chip cookies to mine because I’m a disaster as a baker! If I'm not at work or home you can find me at our New Buffalo, MI lake house or when I'm really lucky traveling abroad. Family trips to Paris & London and an African safari are next on the list.
