Adam didn’t go to school thinking one day he would become a mortgage lender. Instead, he went to work for a Peoria-based tower design and manufacturing company. It was several years before he was drawn in to work with his dad, John Lofgren, as an INB mortgage lender. Before then, he says a career in mortgage lending, “never crossed my mind.”

Now almost a decade later, Adam is an expert when it comes to mortgage lending. Adam believes he’s been successful because he always tries to do the right thing. "Being honest and upfront, and doing what I say I’m going to do. Also, I try to always go above and beyond for my customers.”

He acknowledges that must of his success came from aligning himself with a bank that has a good reputation for doing things the right way and always putting the customer first. “I wish everyone knew how much better our service is than everybody else’s!”

While Adam enjoys helping anyone get a new home, he says working with first-time homebuyers is the best. “Recently, I helped a couple purchase the house they were living in; a previous bank denied their loan.  We got them a much better rate, a $6,000 grant, and closed super quickly. They were so happy.”

To continue to provide excellent service while serving more people, INB recently added both a mortgage processor and an assistant position to help the Peoria lending staff. These two positions, housed in our Peoria branch location, allow the lenders to walk right outside of their offices to talk about a file or any of the many documents required with a mortgage loan. “It’s nice and convenient to have them here with us,” Adam notes.

Adam takes pride in being active in the community. He teaches financial literacy through Junior Achievement of Central Illinois and has even served as a board member.  He takes part in the Peoria Area Association of Realtors, the Peoria Chamber of Commerce and the Young Professionals of Greater Peoria. He formerly served on the Emerging Philanthropists Fund Advisory Council. Of his community involvement, Adam says: “Peoria gave me so much when I was growing up. I feel it’s important to give back and make the community stronger as a whole.”
