Ron has worked 25 years in the mortgage industry and is known by his peers as a Renovation Loan Specialist. Peake started working on renovation loans when a property across the street from his mother didn’t pass an FHA appraisal. Understanding that people often like to purchase fixer-uppers but financing is only available from a handful of lenders, Ron was intrigued and launched his illustrious career as the Ugly Home Lender. At first self taught and then expertly trained, Ron spent the past 15 years of his career focusing on fixer-upper lending. Where other brokers, banks and contractors shy away, Ron most always finds a solution.
The Real Me:
I am a true southsider and a die hard Cubs fan – I know, an anomaly! Growing up in Oak Lawn for over 20 years, I got married and moved even further south to Homer Glen. I have 3 awesome children and a beautiful wife that claims I’m a workaholic (not true). I do always pick up my phone and I rarely let a text sit for more than a few minutes. I’ve also been known to be on email in the wee hours of the morning.
When not working, I spend time hanging out with my family, watching Seinfeld or absorbing the History Channel. Did you know that in 1934, FHA was formed to help spark home purchase and it helped bring us out of the depression?
