Jeff Madden
VP of Mortgage Lending

Jeff began his mortgage career in 1997 after graduating from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He quickly won production awards as a top loan officer due to his ability to take care of the client and deliver an efficient and transparent mortgage approval process. In 2018, Jeff brought his experience and knowledge of the mortgage lending industry to Guaranteed Rate to further improve his focus on the client. One of the many reasons that Jeff chose to partner with Guaranteed Rate is their complete focus on customer service. Guaranteed Rate is an industry leader in regards to technology and was the first mortgage company to deliver an entirely digital mortgage approval process. Because 100% of his new business comes from referrals, it is his promise to make these referral sources proud that they referred him to their clients and friends. Jeff believes that the finest compliment one can ever receive is a referral from a real estate associate, trusted adviser, or previous client. Jeff has been a resident of the Oak Park/River Forest area since 1999 where he resides with his wife Elizabeth and son Henry. In his free time, he enjoys playing and listening to music, reading books on Chicago-area architecture and history, and helping Elizabeth with her jam-making business.
