Matt Kennedy
VP of Mortgage Lending

Lending expert Matt Kennedy has encountered many rare scenarios during his 25 year tenure in the financial services industry. It's these experiences that shaped his client-first approach - never leaning into the "transactional" client mentality as he witnessed from others the undesirable outcomes that could happen.

When working with Matt, you'll find he focuses on asking the right questions to find those small, yet impactful pieces of information, that deliver better than expected financial loan outcomes. Often referred by others as the "parent" of lending advice, Matt is known to be a strategic thinker who anticipates market trends and formulates custom plans to help put his clients in the best position financially.
He is known for his calm demeanor, sensible attitude, and ability to take real-life, complex financial situations and share best-case scenarios in an easy, digestible manner that leaves his clients feeling more at ease and confident in their decisions. From pre-approval to close, Matt joins his clients throughout the entire lending journey to ensure the process is seamless, and nothing is overlooked.

Residing in the Chicago suburb of Glenview this is Matt's third time calling the Chicago area home. In between he lived in Arizona and Michigan. Outside of work, Matt enjoys spending time with his wife Ioanna, and sons Johnny (13 years) and Will (10 years). He also is an avid golfer, and enjoys watching and playing football, baseball and basketball.
