With a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Illinois, Jeff began his career in the mortgage industry in 1984. After four years learning the business with Provident Financial Services and Illinois Mortgage Corporation, Jeff embarked on establishing a local, boutique mortgage firm catering to homebuyers in the near west Chicago suburbs. In addition to expanding his own client list, his reputation in the lending community brought numerous productive Loan Officers into the fold. As a result the company now serves clients from all over the great city of Chicago, but also the entire states of Illinois, Tennessee and Florida.
He has worked with thousands of borrowers in the communities he serves, personally closing over one billion dollars of mortgage loans. His strong communication skills and ability to simplify a complex process are the most often cited praises from his customers and referral partners.

You and Therese are absolutely the best at what you do. Thanks for everything."

"I was feeling apathetic about ever getting a loan to help me consolidate my bills. I had been turned down by three local banks who thought my house was not valuable enough for the loan or that my debt to income ratio was too high. Then a friend of mine recommended Jeff Magee at Mortgage Resource Group. Jeff and Therese Thoreson worked a miracle for me. I got the loan! This company is number 1 on my list. They will answer your questions in plain English that you can understand. I got results fast on my loan. Next time I need a loan I will contact Mortgage Resource Group again."

Jennifer has been an exceptional resource for friends I have referred to her as well as my own interests in real estate for many years. Her excellence shows itself in the commitment that people have to going back to her time and again for management of their financial needs in real estate. I look forward to working with her, always.
Jennifer was an integral part of my home purchase. I truly appreciated her guidance and the high level of service she provided including numerous cash to close estimates and different loan comparisons outlining my interest rate options. I was fully informed the entire way with no surprises, Jennifer is a true expert in her field and highly recommended!
—Michael J. Oak Park
From working with Jennifer on two separate occasions I can confidently say she is extremely professional, honest, and a pleasure to work with. Being a first time homebuyer, she was able to calm my nerves by being very attentive to my needs, from always quickly responding back to any phone calls and emails, to explaining every step of the process. I could not have been more satisfied with the outcome and that is why I returned to her for a refi. I appreciate her always being available and never rushing through anything as well as being so knowledgeable. I highly recommend Jennifer to everyone shopping for a mortgage. Thank you for everything!
