Senior Vice President
Dan Gjeldum has been one of the top mortgage professionals in Chicago for the past 18 years. He is currently licensed in five states and will be licensed in 30-plus by the end of 2014. Since 2010, he’s been ranked in the top 200 mortgage originators by Scotsman Guide and has closed over $100 million in mortgages in each of the past two years. Despite his professional commitments, Gjeldum still makes time to serve on the board of directors for the District 181 Foundation, which supports school initiatives through educational events and programs, and also as a coach to multiple teams for his four kids.
“My goal is to continue to grow professionally while balancing personal and family life,” he says. “I absolutely credit Guaranteed Rate for the professional success I’ve experienced since I joined the company in 2011. My business took off as soon as I made the move to join the team. Our tools to succeed are second-to-none; we have countless tools to help someone grow their business, and no company is built better for a high- volume loan originator.”
Gjeldum has become an expert in wealthy communities with high-end properties, and frequently works closely with high net- worth clients. His long career has exposed him to countless deals and experiences, but it’s exactly that variety that he truly thrives in.
“I am currently working with a company that is contracted by large homebuilders to train and develop their sales teams,” he says. “It’s a different approach to the homebuilder industry that I am very proud to be associated with. Real estate sales experts are working with mortgage experts, and success is the result.”
