Rooting for you. Rooted in Chicago.

When you show your people some love, good things happen.

Whether you’re a loan officer, operations staff member, or another part of the Key Mortgage team, we care about the people we hire. As a local, independent, family-owned business, Key Mortgage feels like a big family because that’s exactly what we are. We’re behind you every step of the way in your career and are ready to help you boost your business in any way we can. Support starts day one, so you can focus on what’s most important to you — delivering the highest quality service to your customers.

Why Key Mortgage?

We have a strong foundation and a bright future. 

We’ve been helping families become homeowners for more than 30 years. While other lenders struggle with the ups and downs of the industry, we’ve stayed stable. What’s our secret? We invest in our people, and they keep getting better — so our company does, too.

Our loan officers

Hit the ground running.

With an award-winning operations team backing you, complete with in-house underwriting capabilities, you’ll spend less time chasing paper and more time closing deals.

Run their business their way.

We’re here to support you, not slow you down. Run your business whatever way works best for you. Plus, we’ll never ask you to share any existing partners or clients.  

Get to say “yes” more.

We’re not a bank and that’s a good thing. With investors behind you and a long list of niche products, our team is always expanding our portfolio of products to fit the needs of today’s customers.

The Key Mortgage advantage:

  • Award-winning operations team in-house and onsite
  • In-house underwriting
  • Team of investors with no overlays
  • Variety of niche products to fit unique customer needs
  • Affiliation with over 2,400 agents
  • Home-grown leadership; we invest in our team members and promote from within

Don’t just take our word for it.

Obviously, we think Key Mortgage is a great place to work (and a great place to work with), but we aren’t the only ones.

COVID-19 Update

We’ve received many questions from our clients and partners about what the ‘shelter in place’ order means in terms of their mortgage closing on time. 

Financial services, and the services that support us, continuing to supply credit and liquidity to the market, fall into a category that is exempt from the ‘shelter in place’ order announced by Governor Pritzker.

This will allow us to continue to provide all of the vital services needed to continue to accept, approve, and fund mortgage loans. Unless notified by Key Mortgage Services, assume there will be no impact to your loan process. 

If you are in the middle of an application, your cooperation with us to supply any required information or documentation and, if applicable, to work with your appraisers around their scheduled appointments is needed now more than ever to ensure we meet the necessary deadlines of your individual loan process.

Our primary focus is and always will be the health and safety of our employees, partners, and clients. We’re working closely with our partners to modify our processes and procedures to ensure that healthy and safe practices are in place to enable the seamless continuity of loans.

Please reach out to your loan officer with any questions during this unprecedented time.
