A native to Lake Geneva, Eric Rabe, senior mortgage consultant at Wintrust Mortgage, knows his community well through his lifetime of experience and adventurous family. Taking a leap of faith into the industry after a career in marketing, Rabe has cultivated a successful business over the last five years. He is licensed in all 50 states, which allows him to even aid clients purchasing a second home.
With a developed skillset in customer service and client experiences, Rabe creates an extraordinary mortgage experience for his clients. He is dedicated to delivering consistent and understandable information to his customers, and that allows them to be informed and involved throughout the transaction process. “I prioritize educating my customers,” he says. “It helps them to develop a deep understanding of the mortgage plan that suits them and their individual needs.”
With an energetic and enthusiastic business style, Rabe wants the purchasing process to feel enjoyable and helpful, not overwhelming and stressful. “It can, at times, be overwhelming for first-time buyers,” he says. “I focus instead on financial education and developing personal relationships with my clients so that they feel comfortable and confident in the mortgage decision that they’ve made.”
In addition to being an affiliate member of the Lakes Area Realtors Association, Rabe is also an avid member of the Community Outreach Committee, which focuses on philanthropy and volunteering. He is a board member of the Elkhorn Lions Club, a fundraising organization which annually donates thousands of dollars and volunteer hours to the local community.
