Wintrust – 2017 Partner of the Year

LUCHA would like to acknowledge Wintrust Mortgage as our 2017 Lender of the Year. Wintrust Mortgage served LUCHA’s clients in 2017 by providing $3.1 million in loan origination and $241,000 in down payment assistant to first-time homebuyers. Without lenders like Wintrust who make homeownership a reality for low-to-moderate income households, our housing counseling services couldn’t meet the needs of our clients.
