Whether working with first-time buyers or current homeowners, Bradley J. Martin uses his expertise to provide his clients with unparalleled personal attention, guidance and service. Today’s mortgage environment can be complex. Martin takes the time to listen to the needs of each client to make sure that the right financing structure is implemented at the most competitive rates, and that the transaction process is seamless and trouble-free.
After practicing real estate law at a large Chicago firm, Martin became general counsel for a multi-state mortgage lender before starting his own mortgage broker company and then joining one of the Nation’s largest non-bank lenders. This extensive background has given him invaluable insight into every aspect of the lending industry, and enables him to anticipate and handle potential issues. “I’ve learned to be proactive, rather than reactive,” he says. “If I have concerns on a file, I’ll research it at the onset to prevent things from blowing up during the process.”
Martin has received numerous professional accolades during his 26-year career. Most recently, he became a member of loanDepot’s Chairman’s Elite Club (2020,2021), and Scotsman Guide ranked him among their Top Originators.
With total commitment to his clients’ best interests, Martin navigates them through every step of the mortgage process, earning their trust while keeping his referral partners informed throughout the transaction. His dedication lasts well beyond closing. “I make sure to stay in contact with clients post-closing to address any concerns, answer questions and look for strategic lending opportunities to save my clients money,” he explains. Martin’s hands-on approach to business, as well as his warm sense of humor, give clients a one-of-a-kind experience. “They are not simply passed off to an assistant,” he emphasizes.
In his off-hours, Martin enjoys SCUBA diving, traveling, bike riding and spending time with family and his two dogs. He’s also been involved with several non-profit organizations, including Giving Rocks Foundation, the Lurie Children’s Medical Research Board and Jewish Council for Youth Services.
