Get to Know Angelo Cusinato

What type of mortgage makes sense?  Fixed rate mortgage like my parents?  Adjustable rate mortgage for a lower payment and to be able to afford more now?  Reverse mortgage so I can remain independent in my own home?  Selecting the RIGHT mortgage is critical.  Finding the right mortgage source for information presented in a way that makes it easy to understand is critical to making the right selection.  It is not brain surgery but if you make a mistake, it will be costly.  My clients don't feel the pain of mistakes.  They feel that by working with me, they have taken the right steps to protect their investment.  Now, my clients call me to buy homes throughout Illinois, as well as those who have left to live in Colorado, Florida & Wisconsin.

Accountants, attorneys, bankers, and parents all offer mortgage advice to future home buyers.  I started my career as an accountant (CPA) and offered advice based on my experiences and education.  As questions concerning investments and financial planning required more research I improved the value of my advice and became a CFP.   I found that even with the best advice I could not know for sure if the advice would result in adequate college funding or retirement comfort because of the years it would take to evaluate success.  I needed a more satisfying way to use my skills.  Opportunity knocked and I became a part-time loan officer.  While I expected that the mortgage clients would become financial planning clients, I found that by incorporating my skills, my mortgage clients appreciated my broad approach toward evaluating their mortgage selection.  They appreciated that I asked specific questions to help them determine their prioities and longer term objectives.  They recognized that I brought financial planning and income tax considerations into this very important decision.  They were pleased that after they closed, they found that by working with me they obtained the right mortgage at the right rate and at the right cost.  No surprises, no bait and switch, no second thoughts.  Best of all, from start to finish, everything fell in place as promised.  And now I have a very satisfying way to use those skills - helping families reach the American Dream. To see the tax savings from home ownership or to better understand the mortgage process or mortgage terms, see my website at

So how do I share our success?  $50,000 paid out to charities & $15,000 paid out in scholarships. I can honestly say that I love my job!
