With 25 years of experience as a mortgage loan professional, Bill Katsoolias brings a wide breadth of expert knowledge and wisdom to each of his client relationships. Katsoolias currently works at Wintrust Mortgage, where he navigates an ever-changing industry by constantly educating himself. “One thing that has brought success to my team is reviewing loan guidelines and products every week to find the best lending opportunities for our customers. I supply my referral partners with these lending tips and successful closings result,” he says.
Katsoolias jumped into the lending industry immediately after college, driven by a desire to help clients navigate a complicated process, as well as to build a successful career for himself through hard work and determination. Katsoolias emphasizes education in all his client relationships. “If I’m working with a first-time homebuyer, I try to arrange an initial in-person meeting, during which I guide them with education tools, tips and financing options,” he says. “Even if I’m working with someone who’s been through the process before, I feel it’s important to explain as much as possible and provide advice, insights and guidance from start to finish.”
Katsoolias’s can-do attitude and commitment to his clients have helped him find success in his career. Among other accolades, Katsoolias has been awarded the President’s Circle honor by Wintrust Mortgage for the last four years.
In his spare time, Katsoolias enjoys running, spending time with his family and pursuing home improvement projects. He most recently built a wooden pergola, home-office bookshelf and wooden power rack for his home gym.
