A Little About Me—

I am a product of the Midwest between time in Northern Wisconsin on the family farm and the West suburbs of Chicago.  I am an ASU Graduate, class of 2004.  I am happily married to my wife and best friend, Jessica, since October 2016 and have a son Caleb...more to come(God willing!) I got into the Mortgage Banking business by means of a chance airplane ride…ask for the full story when we chat.  I have been in the business since February of 2007 and have been the recipient of numerous Top Producer and President Club Producer over the years.  I, with the help of my amazing team, have become one of the highest rated Loan Officers on Zillow in Arizona with over 160 5-Star reviews and counting.

I am very passionate about my profession and take great pride in helping people understand the home buying process and educating them on what their lending options are that are available to them.  I enjoy sharing in the feeling of excitement and joy when individuals and families are able to live out their dream of buying a home.  I look forward to doing the same for you and your family and earning your  business.

Mortgage Brokers normally are difficult to rate as their role is fulfilled behind the scenes.However, Luke Wielgot and team were relentless in processing my application by insuring that all the necessary data and information needed as required either by law or lender regulation was secured in a timely manner. Even though I have a excellent credit score above 800, have high middle income, paid off property and debt free, the team confirmed and reconfirmed all information to secure my ability to qualify for the loan. Further showed their professionalism and responsibility to protect the lenders interest against sub-prime borrowers and yet timely qualification of my loan application to close within the time frame dictated by the purchase agreement. We are totally satisfied with the service provided to close this loan
