Jon Goldman and Michael Black
Senior Loan Officers
Jon Goldman and Michael Black are two of the most distinguished and respected financial professionals in the Chicago area. Partnered for less than a year, both are top originators at Wintrust Mortgage, and their strong communication skills, impeccable leadership skills and almost 30 years of combined experience make them an unstoppable team. Together, they have funded more than $1 billion in loans over the course of their careers.
Goldman built his own mortgage company, Millennium Financial, from the ground up, employing more than 100 people and funding several billion dollars of transactions before moving into development. As a developer, he completed more than 30 residential buildings in Chicago and Arizona. He currently sits on the board for the Sports Legacy Institute, which focuses on concussion research and education for youths in sports.
Black, who is one of the top 5 percent mortgage loan officers in the U.S., demonstrates an impressive understanding of the industry and ability to keep his clients informed. He believes this is just one of the reasons nearly all of their business comes from referrals.
Currently, Wintrust Mortgage is the preferred lender for the South Loop Luxury brands by Related. When it comes to the financial process, they always approach it with the client in mind, and pay special attention to detail.
“It is always the little things that make the difference between a successful transaction and a failed one,” they say. “It is important to look at a situation that doesn’t work and find a way to make it work, and to be able to communicate the merits to the client. We take the time to listen to what is important to the client, and make and execute an achievable plan to get them the results they want.”
