I met Mr.Farella on Bigger Pockets. I am 25 yrs old and deployed overseas. Mr. Farella consistently gave me real estate advice from across the world whenever I asked, out of the kindness of his own heart. He received nothing from helping me and no one else saw it. From behind the scene Mr. Farella is providing value to others even when others aren’t watching. He continues to give me advice and I will recommend him to anyone. Thank you Sir.

THEY’RE FAST They were able to close in under 30 days and lock in a super low rate. My loan officer was extremely detail oriented and did not make any mistakes along the way. When I was shopping around for local lenders I decided to go with Perry because he was obviously experienced and knowledgeable about all things real estate, especially in Chicago. He took the time to explain everything with me in detail and gave me solid advice anytime I called him. As a first-time out-of-state buyer this was all important to me. Need a prequal letter for an offer immediately? Perry had it to me in under 3 minutes. Need questions answered? It’s answered that day, not later that week. Underwriting only took a day, not weeks. Everything was smooth sailing because these guys are professionals – highly reccomend to anyone buying in this crazy market.

Perry is very experienced, thorough, and patient enough to explain things down to the smallest detail. It was my first time acquiring a mortgage and Perry was able to help me navigate through all of the obstacles. I consider myself lucky to have had Perry as my loan officer and would highly recommend him.

My family and I would like to thank you for all of your help during the loan process. Your hard work and dedication to our process was the best and which enabled us to get into our new home. You have help us learn so much as first time home buyer. I made the quick phone to you and without any doubt. You got me a pre approval in 1 hour.

Word can’t express how thankful I am of you. I appreciate you more then you’ll know. You blessed me and my family with 2 unit. Anyone I know who needs a home loan will be calling you first! I’ve already given your name to two other people that are looking to purchase and refinance. I know that you will take care of them as well as you did us.

I am a seasoned Real Estate Broker in the city of Chicago, I don’t endorse anyone who I haven’t personally used and I don’t write reviews just to promote industry buddies, especially because my reputation is on the line.

I’ve renovated 2 homes without a rehab loan and came to Perry Farella to help me secure a renovation loan for a bigger project (2 flat) in Logan Square. I’ve dealt with many mortgage brokers and know renovation lending can a be a difficult process. He made everything seem so simple and guided me through the whole process. He continues to go above and beyond after the closing making sure the project is going smoothly.

There aren’t many mortgage brokers in this city that can do a loan like this. Do yourself a favor and use Perry on your next renovation or regular home loan, he is simply the best!!! I really appreciate him dealing with me as a stress ball in the most professional and caring manner. Thank you Perry!!

Like most first-time home buyers, I had a lot questions,  concerns,  and hesitations. Working with Perry Farella made  my journey to being a homeowner an effortless one. He explained all my 203k loan queries very thoroughly and made himself available via email and phone at all times. At no point did I feel alone or time pressured. He was always ahead of things, ensuring that all necessary paperwork were submitted and in time for closing.

My business experience with Perry has eliminated my doubts and fears of purchasing properties again in the future. Perry, thank you for your valuable time and incredible dedication in making this homeowner’s dream come true! Forever Grateful!

Acknowledgement and Accolades

Top Lender Perry Farella has always been interested in real estate and investments, so getting into the mort-gage industry was a natural fit. He’s been lending for 20 years now, and he’s passionate about helping people finance their dream homes – whether it’s a starter home or a multi-unit in-vestment. Perry specializes in renovation lending, which provides people with financing not only to buy a property but also to renovate and make additions. This type of lending is perfect for people who want to put their personal touch on their homes. If you’re thinking about buying a home, or if you’re interested in learning more about renovation financing, Perry is the perfect person to talk to. He’s knowledgeable and experienced, and he has a library of digital resources to help.

Perry is well aware that the most important thing to a referral business is providing value. By writing content and blogs that show his expertise, he keeps himself top of mind with past clients and local Realtor®s. He makes it a point to check in with them regularly and offer his help, even if they don’t need it at the moment. This way, when they do need a loan for a renovation project, Perry is the first per-son they think of, whether for a fresh start or to pre-pare for sale. He is especially knowledgeable about budgeting, getting the most rent after renovating value from a property and renovating multi-unit buildings in Chicago, Illinois.

When he’s not working, Perry enjoys gardening on his rooftop deck during the Summer months. He is a major investor in the Realtor®’s Political Action Committee called RPAC and is an affiliate member of the Realtor® Association of the Fox Valley. Perry participates in charity and volunteer work through his associations. He is an advocate of adequate housing and participates in many opportunities to continue his knowledge in the industry as well as give back to others through community development. Perry strongly believes that everyone should have a place to call home.

Perry is interested in helping underfunded communities that require rebuilding their neighborhoods and housing stock. A lot of his work is based in the South and West sides of Chicago where there are a lot of properties that need renovations. “I’m always gratified to have the chance to improve an area that needs improvement in neighborhoods that are lacking in housing.” He believes that these types of projects can have a big impact on the over-all quality of life in a neighborhood.

In the future, Perry plans to grow his renovation business in other states beyond just Illinois. He is licensed in roughly 32 states and can lend almost nationwide. Older cities in the US, like St. Louis, Missouri, are undergoing renovations and he’d like to be there to invest in those renovations. This will help him not only diversify his portfolio but also grow his business to be even more successful than it is today. He is always looking for new opportunities to invest in and help grow so that he can continue to provide top-quality services to his clients.
