About Me

Claude Ehinger

I've been helping clients throughout Illinois and the Kane County area get mortgages since 2004. I work with every type of client, but I particularly enjoy helping new home-buyers. Millennials in particular seem to appreciate the personalized attention they receive. In our increasingly internet-based world, many clients find there is no substitute for face-to-face meetings with a professional who is dedicated to guiding them carefully through the mortgage process. When people are making a decision as important as a mortgage, they like to know the person on the other end of the phone, and I'm always there for my clients every step of the way.
Of course our office will never turn a way an easy loan, few companies will, but we're also not afraid to roll up our sleeves and solve problems for clients who have been turned away from large institutions. Many clients who may need down-payment assistance, who have a complicated credit history, or have other obstacles to finding a mortgage in Illinois will be glad to have my dedicated, innovative, and hard-working team on their side.

The secrets to my 19 years of success have been hard work and flexibility. Many large institutions are constrained by corporate guidelines and management mandates that prevent them from exploring every possible option for a client. I'm able to study new programs as they emerge, to try new loan products, and to explore options across the field of lenders which allows my clients to lock in mortgages at competitive rates, often with down payment assistance.

When you call my office to discuss how we can get started finding your mortgage, you'll have an ally who knows your name, your needs, and can guide you through the entire process from start to finish.

While I work with borrower throughout the state of Illinois, the majority of my clients come from St. Charles, Geneva, Batavia, North Aurora, Aurora, Montgomery, Elburn, South Elgin, Elgin, Bartlett in Kane County, DuPage, Cook, Will, and DeKalb Counties.

Let’s find the right home loan for you

We have loan options to fit every situation, from down payment assistance programs for first-time homebuyers to government-sponsored programs for military families and rural residents or jumbo loans in high-cost markets.

Conventional

Conventional

A Conventional loan is a great option if you have an average to high credit score and little debt. This allows you to take advantage of lower interest rates. With these types of loans, you have the option to put 20% down, which eliminates the need for private mortgage insurance (PMI) and saves you money. If you don’t have a large down payment saved up though, don’t worry. We have Conventional loan options for down payments as low as 3%.
Down payment assistance

Down payment assistance

If you’re purchasing your first home, you have options to buy without saving a full down payment. Down payment assistance (DPA) programs can help with your down payment in the form of a loan or grant that is often forgiven over time.
FHA

FHA

If you’re looking to buy on a tight budget, these loans are a great option. It’s easier to qualify for FHA loans because they carry lower credit score requirements and lower down payment options starting at 3.5% down. They’re also insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and only issued by FHA-approved lenders.

All loans are subject to underwriter approval; terms and conditions may apply. Subject to change without notice.

Claude is excellent. He is always prompt with communication and completes tasks when he says he's going to. I wish he would license in every state so he could help me finance again.

Claude Ehinger is one of a kind! He is someone I would consider to be invaluable in whatever capacity he chooses to work in. First of all, he listens. This in itself, is a quality necessary to be successful in developing relationships whether personal or professional in order to be successful.. He pays attention to detail, another asset to all parties involved, especially when followed with a sincere follow through. He is humble and is eager to correct or guide the people who need him to move forward the process of explanation and clarification in a kind and respectful manner which enables the basis for trust. To put it simply, he cares. He cares about others and is willing to expend the time and energy to understand all parties involved in order to establish solid relationships whether personal or professional. Claude is one-of-a-kind which makes for an incredibly valuable person, one of whom I am thankful and proud to know and to go to for advice, suggestions and help whenever needed.

Claude has been helping many members of our family buy homes and refinance for about 15-20 years now. I needed to do some updates to my home and of course thought of Claude to begin the process of refinancing. Claude is helpful, resourceful, and very quick to respond to any questions or concerns you may have so you understand what is going on!! Claude always goes above and beyond for his clients and makes them feel like family. Whatever company Claude works for, our family will follow!
