Buying and Refinancing a Home in Skokie

If you’re looking to buy a home in Skokie or already settled in the area, our team at An Opportune, Inc., knows all the ins and outs to ensure you get the most out of your property in Skokie. First, let’s break down the two processes – buying and refinancing.

Buying a Home in Skokie

Buying a home in Skokie will be one of the biggest decisions you make in the coming years, and we want to help ensure you get it right. With this in mind, setting up time with a mortgage broker before purchasing a home is essential to making this a stress-free process. 

As many new homeowners come to find, purchasing a home before contacting a mortgage expert can lead to issues that require extra help down the road. But why is this so essential when buying a home? A mortgage broker is a key player that delivers funds to close on your new home. For this process to run smoothly, you’ll want the experts to assist with the mortgage pre-approval to qualify for your dream home before you even purchase it, and then process and secure a loan once you find that perfect house. 

Buying a house is quite the process, and this is why having a team of experts on the job is so essential so you ensure all your Is are dotted and Ts are crossed before securing your new space.

Refinancing a Home in Skokie

At An Opportune, Inc., we not only help with the buying process, but refinancing, too. If you need to lower your monthly mortgage payment, take out equity, or shorten the loan term, we can help navigate the process for the best solution for you and your unique needs.

The refinancing process can appear tricky, but our experts know it like the back of our hand. But what are the perks? Refinancing your home can help improve the terms of your mortgage loan. Better terms mean greater financial flexibility for you.  

Whether you wish to refinance your home to secure preferable terms, finally pay off a large debt like student loans, or need to free up capital for a new business venture, refinancing is an excellent way of improving your financial situation. The process can be very tricky, but a team of experts will ensure your refinance is done right.

Our Happy Customers

With over 50 five star reviews, our customer ratings speak for themselves. We’ve served hundreds of Chicagoland and Illinois clients and we’re excited to work with you.

I cannot sing their praises enough! Through Eugene's ingenuity and never-give-up attitude, he found creative solutions to help us obtain our first mortgage when every other loan officer we'd worked with prior, had failed to deliver. Now, we're on the second go around with Opportune, having just refinanced and couldn't be happier with the smooth process and amazing rate Eugene was able to secure for us. We love the team here -- responsive, caring and professional. We'll never go anywhere else for our financing needs and neither should you!

Loved working with Barb at Opportune throughout our mortgage process. She was careful to point out various details we may have missed as 1st time home buyers, connected us with appropriate lenders quickly and was with us every step of the way. Happy to report that we now have our own house, due to in no small part Barb and team. Kudos and thank you!

It's no wonder there are only 5 star reviews here. I worked with Barb Patterson and she was absolutely fantastic!! As someone entering the home buying process with absolutely no idea of how much I could even afford she walked me through every step and fought for me to get the best possible deal. My closing team commented that the loan cleared faster than they've ever seen because of how well Barb handled everything. Cant recommend her enough!
