We make a complicated process a little better
I grew up in Naperville, Il and after graduating from Waubonsie Valley High School I went to Illinois State University to study Criminal Justice Sciences. In order to fulfill the internship requirement for my degree, I packed my bags and headed to Las Vegas where I was a security officer at the Tropicana Resort and Casino.
After completing my internship at the Tropicana I was hired as an Enforcement Agent with the Gaming Control Board. As a State Police Officer my main focus was arresting gambling cheaters and thieves. With 6 years of Law Enforcement under my belt I decided it was time to move home to be with family and friends.
In 2005, I decided to switch career paths and I joined a mortgage company which is owned by a long time family friend. After becoming a Sales Manager at the previous mortgage company I was working for, I decided it was time to broaden my business model and to venture out on my own and start Parlay Mortgage & Property, Inc.
At Parlay Mortgage we live by our vision statement…We make a complicated process a little bit better! We do this by staying true to our core values of Honesty, Integrity and Transparency. I treat each of my clients with the utmost respect and I take great pride in finding the perfect loan to fit my client’s needs. I build my business on referrals, and there is no better way to get a referral than treating each loan as if it were my own!
When I’m not working I am spending time with my wife and 3 kids. I’m actively involved in the community as I think it is vitally important to give back. I coach/have coached baseball, softball, soccer, and football. I’m on the boards of the Mokena Baseball/Softball Association and the Mokena Fall Fling.
In 2015, I was named as a Chicago Five Star Mortgage Professional. In the Fall of 2015 I was selected to attend the prestigious Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program. This was an intense 15 week business program that is designed to help entrepreneurs grow their business and create jobs. The chairs of the program’s advisory council are Warren Buffet, Goldman Sachs’ CEO Lloyd Blankfein and Harvard Business School professor Michael Porter.

After putting in all the suggested work, in 2021 we found ourselves our first home. We went through the entire process and we’re preparing for our closing when a covid regulation changed our eligibility and we ended up losing that house. We were devastated, and Jason and his team were too, as they tried anything and everything to help us get into that home.
In October of 2022 we found our forever home. Jason and his team worked so efficiently, and had us ready for closing in under 3 weeks! Juliana, a processor on Jason’s team, remembered us and was so sweet throughout the entire process. She knows I work in mortgage myself, but she still broke anything and everything down so we knew what to expect, and when.
Something I liked most about working with Parlay, Jason and his team was that they have you overpay your closing costs, which may seem scary at first, but it comes back to you at closing and helps you with any moving expenses, renovations, etc.
Jason and his team make the process quick and easy, and I recommend him and his team to anyone and everyone that we meet! We will absolutely be working with him again in the future!
We pushed for a quick close due to a number of reasons, and Parlay certainly delivered!! They were able to get us to closing in less than 30 days, over the holiday season!! I don't want to set expectation that they can do this for all of their customers because I know that closing in less than 30 days is practically unheard of - there was a perfect storm that allowed this to happen, but a HUGE contributing factor was that Parlay went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that we met our closing date. Excellent service and a trustworthy firm!
They really did an exceptional job!!!
Thanks a lot Rick Gorecki and Parlay mortgage
Thanks again Jason Zimmer
