About Opportune

With decades of experience in the mortgage industry, you can count on our team to make your home buying and refinancing process to be as seamless as possible. We are your greater Chicago mortgage partner.

About Your Chicago Mortgage Partner

We like to think of An Opportune, Inc., as a “boutique” Chicago mortgage firm that takes the stress out of home buying and home refinancing. Everyone on our team is a professional with many years of experience in the field, specializing in a range of loan types, sizes, and programs. We are proud of our track record and particularly proud of our unique ability to secure loans with competitive rates for borrowers who were previously turned down by other lenders.

One of the reasons for our high success rate in closing loans — even ones deemed too difficult for other brokerages to secure — is because we are both knowledgeable about the mortgage business and very creative when it comes to structuring loans. Our clients’ satisfaction speaks for itself, and to date, we boast more than 60 Five-Star reviews on Google alone.



About The Founder

Eugene Salganik, MBA

A banking and Chicago mortgage professional for over three decades, Eugene Salganik has served as president of An Opportune, Inc., since 2017, during which time he has dramatically grown the firm, expanding its clientele and increasing its close-rate. Today, Opportune successfully competes with larger banks and mortgage companies, offering highly competitive rates but with the personal touch to customer service only a smaller agency can provide. 

Eugene started his career at the National Bank of Detroit and founded American United Mortgage, a leading mortgage firm in the Chicagoland area. During his years at American United, he served on the advisory boards of banking institutions, private mortgage insurance companies, and on the Freddie Mac Loan Prospector Advisory Board (2003 -2005). Eugene earned his MBA from DePaul’s Kellstadt Graduate School of Business and, when he’s not crunching numbers, is an award-winning screenplay writer.

Helping our clients one step at a time.

"My situation was difficult and I didn’t know if anyone would be able to help me. But thankfully the Opportune team did."

"Eugene, Hayk, and the rest of the team are absolutely incredible. With the beginning of the Covid19 stay at home orders, they were able to expedite my loan after I threw a curve ball of moving the closing date up by 2 weeks. As this is not my first move, I knew what to expect. But they handled my loan effortlessly, I would not want to work with anyone else on future moves."

"Excellent service. After our original lender couldn't generate the loan in time for closing, Barb worked her magic and provided us with the loan we wanted at the original closing time. She is dedicated and patient with a client's reasonable requests and answers questions even at late hours. Highly recommended for her professional attitude and work ethic. I wish this was a best kept secret but I need to share it with other people."

"Eugene, Marta, and team were amazing from.the start of the process to the very end! We had a very difficult refinancing that would make another mortgage broker quit at least a couple of times, but the team at Opportune were patient, knowledgeable, and made sure that we got what we wanted and saved us tens of thousands of dollars over the life of our loan! Thank you for everything!!"
