After dealing with our current mortgage company with no support we got a package in the mail from Justin. We were impressed with the presentation so decided to call. Best decision we ever made! Justin was great. He was organized and clearly communicated what was needed to expedite a refinance. Very pleasant, professional and good experience. We would highly recommend Justin!

I began working with Justin Dudek last year on refinancing my mortgage & home equity loan. My appraisal was too low to go forward with refinancing. Justin did not give up on me and called again last month. The market changed a bit, I did a little work on updates in my home and the second appraisal resulted in the value I needed. Justin, within weeks, was able to get the paperwork together and my loan approved. I closed yesterday. I am thankful for Justin's experience and dedication to me in...

Just when I was giving up on refinancing my home, I called Justin and heard the answers that I wanted and needed to hear.

He went out of his way to make sure that I understood everything and so that things went as quickly and easily as possible. When...

I would definitely recommend you to any of my friends or family who are looking...

Justin was awesome. Justin was extremely professional, knowledgeable and trustworthy in getting our home loan completed. That's all you can ask for from a service provider. I would strongly recommend using him to research your home loan.

Joel B. - Downers Grove, IL

Justin did a great job in getting us the best loan rate & also the best VA benefits! He is a hard worker & we would highly recommend him. The biggest reason I went with Justin is he was honest & truthful! Strait forward & wont try to push you into a sale or loan. He actually had me wait a year to refinance, glad I did listen!!!!

Eddie C.

Justin has assisted me with several refinances throughout the years, and they have all been seamless. He has communicated with me through the entire process. I am enjoyed his dedication to his job so much that I seeked him out again to help with my loan for my house I am building. He is always looking out for my best interest!!!

Lisa - Tennessee

This was the easiest and fastest refi process I have ever been through. Justin was extremely competent, helpful, and prompt.

Joseph C.

Justin was great to work with. He did ALL the things that others did NOT do to get this loan through. He even helped me get bad information off my credit record. No one else would do that for me. I would recommend him to anyone trying to get a mortgage today.

Thanks for the excellent service. The quick responses and explanations to all my questions was great. I would highly recommend Justin to anyone looking to refinance their home or for mortgage advice. Thanks again.


Justin Dudek's professionalism is exemplified by his knowledge of the market & paying attention to every detail. We wouldn't hesitate to use Justin & GR in the future. There's nothing that compares to having a knowledgeable Mortgage Broker walk you hand in hand throughout the processing, various stages approval & disbursement of funds at the closing. I am truly impressed by him & GR. He not only met but exceeded our expectations. If you need a mortgage, don't waste time with generic call...

Sinisa S. | February 2016

Justin Dudek - we had a great experience with him. He's thorough and reliable. You can believe the information that he provides is accurate and not guess work. He takes the time to do it right. I will always use Justin.

Justin interview Q&A

What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
I do not believe in the "one-size fits all" approach to securing a home loan and I work hard to tailor my services to the needs and goals of each borrower.
Tell us about a specific challenging borrowing situation and how you got the mortgage closed and funded.
A previous client was turned down by a few banks due to Debt-to-Income ratios exceeding allowable limits. After reviewing the borrower's credit/income/assets in more detail, I came up with a solution for the borrower to bring additional funds to the closing to have these accounts paid down and excluded from the DTI allowing the borrower to qualify for home purchase.
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
Keep it simple. Submit all your documents in timely fashion, and consult with Loan Officer prior to making any changes regarding your credit, income/employment or assets that could affect your loan approval.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
Street & music festivals during the summer... rooting for the Bears, Blackhawks & Cubs... bike riding along Lake Michigan... indulging with a Lou Malnati's Deep Dish Pizza afterward; I love my city!
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I'm left handed, but swing a golf club right handed
