I'm a Rockford native who graduated from Rockford High School. I'm married and have four children. I like kayaking, snowboarding, fishing, and doing things with my family. I graduated from Cornerstone University in 2013 where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and Business Management. My servant heart, vast work experience, and education have enabled me to assist my customers with decision making surrounding their largest financial investments, their homes.
Customer service is my passion and I work tirelessly to ensure every customer has an exceptional experience. I’m proud to be part of Independent Bank's lending department, largely due to our vast product portfolio. I can help you with a full line of government products (FHA, VA, RD, etc.), vacant land loans, construction loans, refinancing, investment property purchases, and conventional loans. From the first time we speak, you'll understand that I'm a different kind of loan officer. I'll be with you every step of the way from the application process, to closing, and beyond. Call me today to see how I can serve you.

You can call or e-mail me to answer any of your questions or to ask for advice.
I may get your mortgage pre-approved in minutes, rather than days or weeks!
Ask me about prequalification, so you can shop for your home knowing that you can afford the mortgage.
"Bernie is one of a kind! He made my first home buying experience less stressful and less confusing. He was available and always willing to answer any of my questions and deal with my concerns. I WILL contact Bernie again when I am ready to purchase my next house!” - Brooke T.
"Excellent customer service. Questions were answered quickly, and in detail. Very organized, and staff guides you through the process effectively." - Zacharey J.
"Bernie was amazing! We had to get an offer together in less than 24 hours and he worked very easily over the phone with my husband and I while my husband was traveling. He explained everything in detail to me (I don't have a lot of house buying experience) and felt very strongly that I knew exactly what I was getting into. I appreciate all his hard work!" - Margaret N.
