Wintrust Mortgage & Wintrust Community Banks


Wintrust Mortgage was created to assist in the realization of the American dream of home ownership. Since its founding in 1981, Wintrust Mortgage has weathered the ever changing real estate market. As a full service federally-chartered lender with offices located across Chicagoland, Wintrust Mortgage is dedicated to providing customers with a wide range of mortgage products. To compliment the basic Conventional, FHA and VA Programs, Wintrust Mortgage is positioned to meet the needs of the continually evolving mortgage market.

Wintrust Mortgage is a part of Wintrust Financial Corporation, a well capitalized, diverse, $20 billion asset, financial services company. Wintrust Financial offers the products and technology of the big banks and investment firms but pairs it with exceptional service, understanding and the proper focus. It means you can have a full slate of powerful and sophisticated financial products and the local decision making and personal service that only a group of community banks, a strong mortgage company and a local wealth management firm can offer.

Wintrust Community Banks provide community-oriented, personal and commercial banking services to customers located in Chicagoland, through its 15 wholly owned banking subsidiaries and over 120 banking facilities.
