Greg, originally from Cairo, IL, was raised in St. Louis, MO and grew up with all of the exciting changes to the community. Following his graduation from Fort Zumwalt High School (O’Fallon, MO), Greg went on to Ozark Christian College where he was blessed in wedlock to the former Kazan Studebaker. Greg graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies then began preaching ministries throughout Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, and Ohio. Greg lived in Fairview Heights, IL for 7 years and eventually settled in Swansea, IL, the place Greg and his family have called "home" for over 20 years. Greg fulfilled his public service as a trustee of St. Clair Township, IL from 2009-2013. He is the father of two adult daughters and has four grandsons (2 of which were born on Valentine’s Day, 1 year apart!).
Greg began his tenure as a home loan lender in July of 1992 but continued to serve as a part-time pastor for small churches in the St. Louis area. While residing in Illinois, his close proximity to Scott Air Force Base lead to lending to members of the military and Greg became very skilled with VA Financing, in addition to FHA, USDA, and Conventional Financing.
Greg understands that that financing a home is not like “going to the grocery store each week to squeeze the bread or check the date on the milk” and homebuyers have little (or no) experience understanding the loan process. It is this understanding that fuels Greg's passion to explain “how it all works” in everyday language to make sure his homebuyers do not leave his office feeling like they just came out of the Twilight Zone! His approach takes the pain out of the home loan process by truly getting to know you and helping you and your family reach your home ownership goals. Since People’s National Bank offers several unique “in house” portfolio loans, Greg now has additional options to assist your home financing needs.
