    Neighborhood bank looking to grow home financing through staff increases 


    Orland Park, IL (January 9, 2012) –– Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood bank, has announced aggressive plans to expand home lending by increasing staff by more than 30% in 2012.  The Bank is seeking Mortgage Originators with five or more years of experience and is looking to immediately hire new lenders in the Chicagoland area. Marquette Bank has completed more than $1 billion in retail lending over the last three years and has been named to the Top 100 Places to Work in Chicago, by Workplace Dynamics, for the past two years.

    “Marquette Bank is a trusted neighborhood bank. Our business is growing quickly as many home buyers are looking to finance through local community banks rather than large national mortgage lenders,” said Jack McMahon, Residential Real Estate Sales Manager. “We need knowledgeable, professional mortgage originators who can be effective immediately.”

    There are several factors driving the expansion at Marquette Bank.  As mortgage rates have fallen, the Bank has seen home buyer applications rise. Due to lower home values, first time home buyer activity is the highest it has been in years.  Finally, there has been a shift among consumers whose preference for community banks is a reflection overall trend toward more local banking and home financing. The Marquette Bank positions offer incentive based compensation including health benefits. The Bank provides a wide range of home financing products and options to ensure Mortgage Lenders are able to serve potential home buyers and current home owners.

    “Many of our Mortgage Bankers operate like they have their own business,” said Mike Mangin, Executive Vice President. “We give them guidance, sales tools, underwriting, funding and they control their activities and growth in the community, so there is no limit on the number of people they can help refinance or buy a home.”
