Get to Know Chris Richter

Hi and thank you for stopping by.  My name is Chris Richter and I've been a mortgage lender since 2001. 

A lot has changed through the years.  One thing has not:  The choice of the proper mortgage product will ultimately influence you and your family's financial position for years to come. 

In order to do this, we take the extra few moments to align your financial situation in the context of long- and short-term goals.  In this way, I can suggest a financing option that will be the best fit to meet today and tomorrow's financial objectives.  

My company, Wintrust Mortgage, is one of the largest and most respected mortgage bankers in the Chicago area.  Very simply, I am here because Wintrust can provide better financial options for my clients than any other firm in today's climate.  We have the full array of lenders so that we can get the best rates, but we also process, underwrite, and fund the loans ourselves.  Our fees are low, our interest rates beat the competition, and our service team is exceptional.

We are licensed in 50 states, but I do most of my work right here in Chicago.  If I'm not around when you call, you might catch me over at a soccer field near you where I've been coaching for Fenwick High School for 8 years.


Some of the programs and solutions that we offer include:

FHA mortgage financing up to $410,000 loan amount in Chicago metro

Conventional mortgage loans up to $417,000

Conventional mortgage loans with lender paid mortgage insurance

Jumbo mortgage loans

Fixed rate and Adjustable rate mortgage loans

No closing cost refinances

FHA mortgage financing

VA mortgage financing for qualified veterans

First Time Home Buyers mortgage Loan programs

These are just a few of the programs we offer. The program that is best for you depends on your specific goals and needs. If you have any questions or if I can help you in any way, Visit my Blog Chicago Mortgage Loan please give me a call at 773.931.2424 or send me an email at
