When dealing with other people’s money, sometimes you need the personal touch to instill confidence and inspire trust. Daniel Andersen takes that idea to heart. Top mortgage professional in Illinois Dan Andersen is a successful mortgage broker and team leader with Peoples Home Equity, based in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago.

Dan learned the importance of customer service as a general manager for a busy restaurant before he got into the mortgage business. Entrepreneurial by nature and focused on education, Dan worked for a degree in Business and Finance while managing the restaurant. At the time, Dan’s cousin owned a brokerage firm. He knew Dan was smart and had a great way with people, so he invited Dan to join the brokerage. Dan knew it was risk. He would have to leave a well-paid, secure job to work without pay until he was able to build his business. But the offer of stepping into a role that provided independence and a chance to make his mark was too exciting to pass up.

It was a great move, because Dan parlayed the opportunity into a successful career.  He worked for the firm for 4 years until it was merged into Peoples Home Equity, which is a large mortgage lender with offices in 20 states from California to Virginia.  Today the Daniel Andersen Team comprises three loan officers and three support staff. The entire team is expert at making the loan transaction easy and transparent for both homebuyers and Realtors.

The Andersen Team’s territory includes all of the Chicago metropolitan area (aka Chicagoland) and the neighboring counties. Dan focuses on the southwestern Chicago suburbs, which is a large area made up of many municipalities. The region has been enjoying a strong real estate market, keeping Dan and his team very busy. Dan enjoys working with homebuyers and homeowners, and deals exclusively with residential loans, including adjustable rate, fixed length, FHA, VA, refinance, and reverse mortgage loans.

Whether a young family is purchasing their first home or a couple wants extra cash to enjoy their retirement years, Dan works hard to ensure the financial aspects of the real estate process are as painless and stress free as possible. These days, so much can be done over the Internet. Information can be shared and papers can be signed online without interacting face to face with another person. Most people, though, aren’t comfortable doing business that way. That’s why Dan takes the time to meet his clients in person to explain all the options and ramifications of a loan. He builds trust through being completely transparent and demonstrating to his clients that they are getting the best deal available.

His approach has certainly been successful. All of his new business comes from referrals by past clients and from the more than 100 Realtors he regularly works with. Dan is also proud to receive a 5 Star rating by, based on over 140 reviews. In addition, Dan was recently awarded The Five Star Award for his superb customer service. The Five Star Professional organization conducts market-specific research throughout the U.S. and Canada to identify reputable and trustworthy service professionals. Dan was cited as one of the top 3% of loan officers in Illinois out of a field of 16,000. Dan is also very proud to serve as the in-house lender for Chicago’s south suburbs Century 21 Pride office, which is one of biggest and busiest real estate offices in the country.

The strong real estate market has certainly been keeping Dan very busy, but he’s managing to find the time to wed his fiancé at a romantic ceremony in Paris this year. He won’t be gone too long though, because interacting with and helping people through his work is just too important to him.
