Ask A Mortgage Question


I have over 25 years of experience in the mortgage industry. I enjoy working with first-time home buyers, as well as high net worth buyers, investors, realtors, and builders. Throughout my career, I worked as a loan officer, branch manager, and operations manager of several different mortgage companies. I consider myself to be a professional sales leader because of the thousands of people I have impacted positively during my career. My strengths are my experience and ability to get deals done, as well as placing a high value on communication with my clients and referral partners.

Thank you for visiting my website! I’m Bill McNamee, Vice President and Retail Sales Manager for First State Mortgage. In my many years in the mortgage business, I have helped thousands of people purchase their dream homes and refinance them to improve their financial situation.

My team and I combine VIP service with in-depth problem solving. Whether you have a challenging situation or simply want the best possible terms and service, we are here to help every step of the way. I always make myself available beyond business hours, and will go the extra mile for every one of my customers.

I began my career in lending over 30 years ago. In that time, I have owned my own company, and was chosen to be the President of the Illinois Association of Mortgage Professionals. I also served as Vice President and Treasurer of the Illinois Association of Mortgage Brokers. I am honored to have received the “Loan Officer of the Year” and “Broker of the Year” award multiple times. I presently sit on the board of the real estate philanthropic committee Homesmart Helping Hands. I have also been interviewed and quoted by many news organizations including the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Reuters and Crains’ Chicago Business to name a few.

I have lived in the Northwest Suburbs my entire life, where I currently reside with my wife and teenage son. When I’m not helping customers, I enjoy working outside, and spending time with my family in Lake Geneva. I am the former host of the “My Kind of Town” and “Catholic School Spirit” radio shows.

I welcome the opportunity to serve you, and to make your home buying process as seamless and stress free as possible. Please contact me to get the process started. I look forward to working with you!
