I am proud to have been named one of Chicago’s Five-Star Mortgage Lenders. Check out my profile as it appears in Chicago Magazine! I am named one of the nation’s Top 100 Producers by Mortgage Originator Magazine…it’s the equivalent of winning an Oscar except without the fame and money.

Making this magazine was a goal of mine for years. I was able to cross it off my to-do list and move on to my last two goals: Making People Magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People and being able to dunk a basketball on a regulation hoop (I’m pretty close to changing this goal to a Nerf hoop).

Even more importantly, though…it’s an honor to be thought of so highly by clients and associates. Here are some reviews from Yelp on both my personal page and the PERL Mortgage page. Please feel free to write a review if I’ve helped you in the past!

“Barry helped my wife and I from start to finish on our first home. We came in clueless (and nervous) but came out well educated on how the whole loan process works. We will definitely refer Barry all of our friends.”

– Chris & Cheri Cohen

“I called Barry and four of his competitors when I shopped for my rate. He was the lowest on rate and closing costs. But, more importantly, he seemed to be the most interested in what I had to say and what was best for my financial needs. He’s definitely earned the title ‘Lender for Life’.”

– Jordan Mendal


“We hired a lender for our purchase before we knew about Barry. Two days before our closing, the lender we picked denied our loan. When we contacted Barry he not only found us a better rate, he was also able to close on time. We’ve since referred him to many people, and will continue to do so.”

– Brian & Laura Lennon

“What’s not to like about Barry? He’s simply the greatest.”

– Barry’s Mom
