    Worst experience with a lender

    Thoroughly disappointed with MB and this was the worst experience I have had dealing with a mortgage company and I have bought and sold several homes and refinanced several homes. The process started out great and I will say the rate I got was a good rate. However the process leading up to closing which was delayed several times was painful and I ended up losing approximately $1000 in credit due to me. My realtor had notified MB on two separate occasions at least one to two months from closing that I was likely going to end up with more credits due back to me at closing than I could take at closing however with a VA loan, there are creative ways you can use excess credits so you don't lose them. I was worried that could happen so I repeatedly asked leading up to closing if I could review the financial documents to ensure I was getting all the credits I was entitled to and several times my requests were ignored. When I did finally get a chance to review a document, it was in error but led me to believe that most of the credits were accounted for. I queried Jim Brabec on this issue and other issues and never got responses. Lo and behold when I show up to closing (which had been delayed), the amount I was expecting due back to me at closing was reduced by approximately $1300. When I questioned them, they said there was nothing that could be done other than delay closing yet again which would have impacted me and the sellers and caused the sellers to have to pay financial penalties. So the very one thing I was worried about and my realtor brought to their attention TWICE early on, bit me in the butt because I relied on MB to be a professional bank. Never have they apologized and accepted responsibility for their errors. I have raised this issue up to the Senior VP level who basically has blown me off. I am sure he looked into my matter, but the phone discussions were of the tone that, "Sorry nothing can be done, you're outta luck. We offered you a chance to delay closing and get the excess credits, but you turned it down". I called him several times to try to get updates and never received a call back. Best advice, stay away from MB. You might get a great rate, but this was a horrible experience... Read More

    Great Service from Start to Finish

    My wife and I had been out of the home buying process for some time. We both had purchased homes in years past, but have been renting for over 5 years. There has been a great amount of change in those years. We approached the process if buying a home with quite a bit of skepticism and worry. Chris made set an appointment with both of us and answered a barrage of questions and made my wife and I doubters to believers when it came to purchasing a home. Chris went above and beyond what you would expect from a mortgage professional. He held our hands when we needed it and helped us from the very start to the very end. My wife and I could not be more happy with the loan and the service we received from Chris. We would highly encourage anyone in the market for a mortgage (purchase or refi) to sit down and spend 30 minutes with Chris so he can earn your trust and your business. ... Read More

    Jim Brabec

    Jim was outstanding during the entire loan process. He was knowledgeable and was able to answer all of my questions along the way. If myself or my realtor had to reach out on something during the purchase process, Jim took our calls right away or returned them shortly after leaving a message. I would work with Jim again in the future for any of my refinance or future purchase needs.... Read More

    MB Financial is a great lender

    Our MB Financial rep, Mark, was extremely helpful. He's the only institution that texted me, versus tons of automated phone calls and e-mails. He was very timely with his responses and answered all of our questions thoroughly. He made the entire process as painless as possible. We came from a different lender, very large well known bank, who we had been with for over 8 years, and they wouldn't budge on their rates to keep our business. MB Financial is a great lender, and I highly recommend them... Read More

    My refi

    When I inputted my information on lending tree, I received an immediate response from Mike Leonhart. We talked about what I wanted to do and I felt very comfortable speaking with him. I received several other calls after but stayed with Mr. Leonhart. He told everything that was going to happen and what information that I needed to provide. I provided the necessary information and always got an immediate response. It was a pleasure working with Mr. Leonhart. Great person to work with... Read More

    Quick & Easy Refinance

    I worked with Mark Finnigan and MB Financial to refinance my house mortgage with a large cash back amount. When I was trying to find a lender to go with, Mark wasn't pushy, he provided good information and followed up but not excessively. The process was quick and easy and Mark was very responsive. He answered all my questions completely and timely and we closed quickly. The closing costs were extremely reasonable as was the refinance rate. I would definitely recommend working with MB Financial and Mark specifically for any type of home loan.... Read More

    MJM refinance with Mike Leonhart

    When I inputted my information on Lending Tree I received an immediate response from Mike Leonhart who is with MB Financial. I spoke with Mike and immediately felt comfortable. I received calls from other institutions but remained with Mr. Leonhart. He told me what I needed to provide him with and everything went pretty smooth. Mike did everything he needed to do to my complete satisfaction. I also enjoyed our conversations. I will definitely recommend Mike Leonhart and MB Financial to anyone I know who is looking to refinance. Mario Monteir... Read More
