Closed refinance loan.
I would highly recommend Barb Lanis and her team if you are considering refinancing a home. The process went very smooth and quick. I had a few special situations such as a divorce, and a two flat home and it was not a problem. A member of her team even came out to my home to do the closing paperwork during the heavy rain and flooding this spring.

Closed refinance loan. West Chicago, IL
We shopped around with different lenders to re-fi our home loan and Barb had the lowest rate out of all of the lenders we went to, so we chose her. I was honestly dreading the entire process, but she made it easy. She was always available for any questions we had during the process and we were pleasantly surprised at her availability and willingness to work with us after normal business hours, that was a big unexpected plus for us since we both work full time. Barb was also very thorough and communicative through every step along the way, and seemed genuine in looking out for our best interests. We ended up saving a lot of money which was our goal. We would go to Barb again for our next loan and we would (and have!) recommended her to family and friends.

Closed refinance loan.
Barb was very knowledgeable, courteous, prompt and professional. She was able to answer all of my questions and give fair unbiased advice. I used Barb after my sister raved about how much she helped her and my brother-in-law. I was very pleased with the service I received and would recommend her to friends and family.

Barb is very easy to work with. We have been wanting to refinance for awhile now, and have not been able to find someone that could help us. When we contacted Barb, she was very prompt with getting back to us. We qualified for the HARP loan and Barb was able to request our paperwork, get everything in order, and to lock at a great rate within 2 weeks of us contacting her. We will be closing in April. Thanks! Great experience!

Closed refinance loan.
I met Barb over 10 years ago. She helped my husband and I get our mortgage with our first home. Our credit was less than perfect at the time. She took the time to give us advice and we were able to get a really low rate! I will now only use Barb for all of my mortgage needs. We just refinanced for a 2nd time and it was such a nice and easy experience. She is honest, helpful and quick to respond. She has helped many of my friends and relatives. Please check her out!
