With 26 years in the industry, loan officer Dan Gjeldum says the current housing market is not his first rodeo. “There is never a better time to have an experienced mortgage professional behind you,” he says. “This isn’t the first period of rising rates I have seen, nor the first lack of inventory. I can answer any and all questions a client has on our environment.”
Gjeldum says that the best way for mortgage professionals to differentiate themselves is through their understanding of product guidelines. “The more you know, the better you can educate your clients,” he shares. “Thankfully my appetite for reading mortgage guidelines is large!”
In 2021, Gjeldum was recognized as the 40th highest-producing loan officer in the country and the third highest in Illinois with a production of over $421 million. He says he doesn’t waste time at work, as he’s there to deliver for his clients.
Gleldum’s clients love the team approach to the mortgage process at Guaranteed Rate. “The process can be cumbersome these days if your lender does not have a team of people assisting with the process, from start to finish,” he says. “Each person gets rave reviews from our clients, and it’s really allowed us to set ourselves apart from our competition.”
This summer, Gjeldum looks forward to coaching his kids’ baseball team for the final time and spending time with his wife and family.
