About Me
I grew up in Naperville, Il and after graduating from Waubonsie Valley High School I went to Illinois State University to study Criminal Justice Sciences. In order to fulfill the internship requirement for my degree, I packed my bags and headed to Las Vegas where I was a security officer at the Tropicana Resort and Casino.
After completing my internship at the Tropicana I was hired as an Enforcement Agent with the Gaming Control Board. As a State Police Officer my main focus was arresting gambling cheaters and thieves. With 6 years of Law Enforcement under my belt I decided it was time to move home to be with family and friends.
In 2005, I decided to switch career paths and I joined a mortgage company which is owned by a long time family friend. After becoming a Sales Manager at the previous mortgage company I was working for, I decided it was time to broaden my business model and to venture out on my own and start Parlay Mortgage & Property, Inc.
I treat each of my clients with the utmost respect, honesty, and integrity, and I take great pride in finding the perfect loan to fit my client's needs. I build my business on referrals, and there is no better way to get a referral than treating each loan as if it were my own! When I'm not working I am spending time with my wife and 3 kids
