    “I am very satisfied with the service I recieved from Michelle Gospodarek at smart mortgage. They are second to none in mortgage business in the chicago area if you ask me! I have heard some horror stories about mortgage brokers not taking important calls, but Michelle made herself very available and there was NO delays on their end. She is also very knowledgable and made it easier for me to understand the home buying process. Expect nothing but grade A1 service”!
