An Experienced, Local Mortgage Broker Who Puts People First

“Hi, I’m Lisa Marie, and I’ve spent more than 24 years in the mortgage industry working on countless loans of all types and dollar amounts. Before that I was a licensed real estate agent and a title company closing manager. So I’ve seen every side of the mortgage loan process and I use that background, expertise and knowledge to give my clients the best experience possible in buying or refinancing their home. I’d like to be your mortgage lender for life, so if you’re looking for a loan please give us a call and let us find the perfect loan for you and show you the Fox Valley Mutual Mortgage difference.

Loan types, credit and down payment requirements, and interest rates and terms are items we get asked about constantly from prospective clients, and all of these can vary depending on many different factors. At Fox Valley Mutual, Inc., we do not try to steer our clients into any specific type of loan, but instead we will work closely with you to fully understand your situation and come up with a loan option that is the right. Some clients need a low or even no down payment loan option, other clients are more interested in rates and terms than down payment requirements, while others may have been turned down for a loan by their local bank and are most concerned that their credit score may not allow them to purchase their own home. Rest assured Fox Valley Mutual, Inc. will tailor the right loan option to your situation, and all it takes is a five-minute consultation to see for yourself why thousands of homebuyers have chosen us as their mortgage partner."

What Others Say About Us

“I was recommended to Lisa Marie by a friend. I call her hurricane Lisa, when she blows in, things get moving. She was totally professional and got my closing done in less than 3 weeks. I would highly recommend her to anyone that needs some help.”
“Lisa is amazing! From start to close, it was only a few weeks. I had a hard time keeping up with her! She knows how to be efficient and keeps on top of communication with everyone involved. Unlike most real estate professionals and brokers, she does the heavy lifting and puts in the effort to make sure everything runs smoothly. It felt like I was her only client the entire time.”
“Can't say enough about working with Lisa. This is my 3rd re-finance in 6 years and it just keeps getting better. She takes care of the little (and large) obstacles with style, keeps her word and the results speak for themselves.”
“Lisa Marie has helped us through buying two homes and selling one! She is always so knowledgeable on any question we have had and you can get a hold of her at any point! She always goes above and beyond anything a customer could ask for!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Our clients have many questions about their loan options and the approval process, and if we can help in any way please give us a call for a brief consultation.

The most important thing to consider when looking for a home loan is how much you can afford, and a good first step is the mortgage calculator. Borrowers begin with a loan consultation to discuss the many factors lenders will consider when determining your loan amount, in addition to the appraised value of the home against which you are borrowing.

A pre-qualification is a determination by the lender, based on creditworthiness, income and other factors, but is not a formal approval of credit since not all underwriting requirements have been met, and your rate has not been locked until your lender tells you it has been locked. Then you will work with the lender to satisfy all requirements to receive approval to close on your new loan.

Loan types vary and a lot depends on how long it takes the borrowers to compile the information required by the lender, but the typical timeframe from start to finish is three weeks.
