Maria R. Correa

Maria R. Correa was born in Mexico, but relocated to Chicago at the age of 3. Throughout her years in the area she has not left any location unexplored. She has made it a point to familiarize herself with a variety of areas and can attest to their prosperous development. With that knowledge, she has based herself in a thriving location, Wicker Park.

Her love for the industry began at a young age. She reminisces on following her mother around the grocery store and calculating the costs of all their necessities, making sure they would never go over their budget. Using small steps such as that, she knew she had to begin her career in the banking industry.

A continuous theme in Maria’s life has been that of helping others. For this reason, she is at Fairway Independent Mortgage and is notorious for being a knowledgeable and innovative professional whose success is built on the platform of integrity and exceptional customer service.

With over 12 years of real estate and mortgage lending experience, Maria is considered an industry leader. She has received the NAHREP Top 250 Latino Mortgage Originator Award for two consecutive years.

Maria lives according to the statement by Ralph Waldo Emerson, “The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
