Monica Bueno was born in Ecuador, South America. She moved to the United States of America in 1987. She is fluent in Spanish. After working in the accounting field for a few years, she began her career in the mortgage lending industry in 2001. She spent a few years as a loan officer helping homebuyers achieve the dream of becoming home owners. In 2006 she became a mortgage broker and opened her own Mortgage Company in Elgin, IL. She found a lot of joy in working with clients and also training people who chose to become loan officers and started working in the mortgage lending career. With the Real Estate crisis a few years ago, she was forced to close her mortgage company and moved forward into the accounting field for a little while. She never lost the interest in the mortgage industry and was never totally disconnected from the Real Estate business as she is presently married to a Real Estate Agent.
With over 18 years of experience in the Real Estate and Mortgage lending, Monica still has the passion of helping borrowers structure and understand the right mortgage program for each one of them. She makes sure they feel comfortable and know what is happening every single step of their mortgage process. Answering any question before, during and even after the closing brings her happiness and the assurance of a referral business. She believes greatly in customer service and in treating people the same way she would like to be treated. Sometimes the process of purchasing a home might be confusing and stressful for the borrowers and they have to be sure that their mortgage banker is there; next to them to provide answers and information.
Monica resides in Hoffman Estates, IL. She has been married for 25 years and has four children. Her older children are attending the University and her commitment to them is to help them achieve a professional career. She still has a ten year old at home who keeps her busy with soccer and basketball games. Her family loves pets. They have 2 dogs and 1 hamster. Monica and her family like to travel and visit Ecuador her homeland as frequent as possible. They enjoy visiting the mountains, the jungle and of course the perfect weather over there.
