    Please, tell us a little more about yourself.

    I began my career as a real estate paralegal, certified by Roosevelt University in Chicago. I worked for attorneys in various areas for 20 years, and then went on to work at a title company for two years. I then combined all that experience and knowledge, and opened my mortgage company.
