Dee VanderWall

I started in the mortgage business in 1990 working in Crown Point for Gainer bank as a mortgage loan secretary/processor. After several years at Gainer Bank and many bank name changes, I moved to Direct Mortgage as a Mortgage loan officer. In 2003 I decided to start my own company, First Hometown Mortgage, Inc. and stay in the town I love. Being in the business for so long has it advantages as many of my customers over the years have become friends as well as loyal customers.

I Love helping people make their dreams come true purchasing their first home, upgrading the home that they currently own or purchasing an investment property. I have lived in DeMotte since I was 7 years old. Married my high school sweetheart and we have two grown daughters and 4 grandchildren that I adore. In my spare time I spend every moment I can with them! I am also active in the community in different service organizations as well as taking my dog Copper on numerous service activities in nursing facilities, schools, home visits etc.
