Senior Vice President of Mortgage Lending | Guaranteed Rate
Thirteen-year industry veteran Michelle Bobart continues to flourish through a changing mortgage lending environment. The pinnacle of her team’s continued success and business growth is threefold. “Without exception, we make only client-driven decisions. We always have their best interests at heart. Secondly, my team manages the expectations of all parties by keeping them well informed throughout the loan process. Everyone must have full confidence that timelines will be met. Third, I help my Realtor partners grow their business by creating outside-the-box marketing strategies to enhance their inbound leads. My loan volume growth becomes a byproduct of their success,” Bobart says. With seven nominations from the Illinois Association of Mortgage Professionals, she is a well-respected advisor with a proven track record of flawless transactions.
Bobart maintains her optimism that a tougher real estate market equals unprecedented opportunity for the strongest players to capture a bigger market share. “Those less experienced or without a strong team behind them will have a tougher time because every transaction requires twice the effort as in the past.” Bobart continues to be a “thrill-seeker” in her downtime with hobbies including scuba diving and mountain climbing. This fall she looks forward to “swimming with the Great Whites” in South Africa.
