With a prowess for handling complicated transactions and conducting thorough financial analysis, Ricky Bachtra makes his clients’ real estate dreams a reality. As a senior home-lending adviser at JP Morgan Chase in Prospect Heights, Bachtra specializes in conventional and jumbo loans as well as FHA & VA products, applying 11 years of experience to educate his clients and fit them with the right lending solution. “I always want to enable my clients to accomplish their long-term goals,” he says. “I care about setting them up for a successful future and building a strong relationship with them from the start.”
Beginning every transaction with a consultation to ensure that all parties are on the same page and the clients understand how to buy within their budget, Bachtra strives to make the process as easy as possible, providing them with the required documentation and taking the time to explain the transaction’s nuances.
Working in conjunction with his assistant and his two customer-service specialists, Bachtra meets his personal business goals while managing to put his clients first. His diligence has paid off: Every year since 2017, Bachtra has been selected as a National Achiever by Chase and his client base is entirely comprised of referrals.
Ricky spends his leisure time with his family, going biking and playing soccer in the park. He also enjoys serving his community. “Every Christmas, my wife and I take part in Operation Christmas Child, a project of the Samaritan’s Purse organization,” he says. “We fill in shoeboxes with toys, hygiene items and school supplies, which will be sent to children around the world. I recommend anyone to be a part of this, as this is something that bring smiles to children.”
