Mortgage Master, one of the country’s largest privately-owned mortgage companies, is expanding its presence in the Midwest with the opening of a new retail branch office in Northbrook. This will be Mortgage Master’s fourth retail office in the Greater Chicago area and its fifth in the Midwest.
The new Northfield office will be led by mortgage industry veterans Jorden Brok and Brett Lotsoff. Brok and Lotsoff, who have a combined closed loan volume of over $2 billion, have a deep understanding of the regional marketplace and extensive knowledge of all mortgage product categories, including Jumbo loans. As co-managers, they will focus on building relationships with referral partners, such as real estate agents, builders and attorneys, to provide borrowers with some of the lowest pricing and best service in the Midwest. They will also work with Mortgage Master’s regional manager, Brian Jensen, to hire high-quality loan officers to further expand and improve the branch’s production team.
“We are extremely lucky to have Jorden and Brett, both exceptional leaders and mortgage origination professionals, join Mortgage Master to build our business and brand in this important Midwest market,” said Mortgage Master President Paul Anastos. “Business and excitement is already building about the Northbrook office, which is off to a fast start in helping borrowers purchase or refinance a home while interest rates are still historically low. Their leadership skills will help Mortgage Master continue to deliver dynamic service and the best possible pricing to borrowers in Chicagoland and throughout the Midwest.”
Jorden Brok has over 17 years of experience as a leading mortgage originator with over $1.1 billion in closed mortgage loans. He has worked as a loan officer at many leading mortgage companies, including Guaranteed Rate, Inc. and 1st Advantage Mortgage.
“The opening of this new branch is a fantastic opportunity not only for me, but for the Midwest region,” Brok said. “Mortgage Master is committed to offering borrowers some of the best pricing and service throughout the U.S. This model, coupled with my goal of fully understanding a borrower’s goals and needs, is a perfect fit for me to continue to help clients find the right mortgage solution for their current situation for either a purchase or refinance transaction.”
Brett Lotsoff joins Mortgage Master with over 21 years of experience as a leading originator and manager. With approximately $1 billion in closed mortgage loans, Lotsoff has worked as senior vice president and branch manager for 1st Advantage Mortgage and Guaranteed Rate, Inc, in addition to serving as a senior loan officer and holding management positions at other leading mortgage companies in Illinois.
“Jorden and I have worked together for 17 years, and we are excited to become part of one of the leading and most responsible mortgage lenders in the country,” added Brett Lotsoff. “For over 25 years, Mortgage Master has been helping borrowers with the biggest financial decision of their lives – buying a home. We have a deep knowledge of our local markets, particularly the needs of jumbo borrowers, and with Mortgage Master’s full-suite of lending solutions and exceptional operational infrastructure, we can better and faster meet local borrowers’ needs when making a decision to either purchase a new house or refinance an existing one.”
The Northfield office is located at 1033 Skokie Boulevard, Suite 150 and offers mortgage lending services to borrowers in Northbrook and the surrounding Chicago area.
