Michael Hughes NMLS #1195168
I realize that amidst the busy lives we all live, learning about budgeting and finances can sometimes take a backseat to other priorities. I am here to help you make sense of your credit report, teach you strategies to improve your score, and lead you down a path to home ownership.
I pride myself on keeping my clients and colleagues informed
on both the good and bad news (it happens), throughout the steps of obtaining a
mortgage. I will seek out the best programs, interest rates and terms suited to
each client's specific needs. Whether you are looking to refinance a current mortgage,
searching for your first home, or you have purchased and sold a few houses in
your day, I will provide you with the solutions you need to make the process as
streamlined as possible.
I currently reside in Belvidere and when I'm not at the office, I spend time traveling, attending concerts, cooking, following Chicago sports, working on community development projects with the Rockford Area Realtors’ Young Professional Network, and trying very hard not to be the worst golfer in the Stateline.
