With over 25 years of mortgage experience, beginning in 1989 with his days in the collection department of a small community bank in Lansing, then on through servicing, processing, underwriting, wholesale, retail and multiple markets; Rod has touched most aspects of the mortgage industry throughout his career. It is these many facets to give him the well-rounded understanding of how best to serve his clients today and to provide the best available mortgage products, price and service!

Born and raised in Michigan. Growing up in the Lansing Area, 10 years around Metro Detroit (where he met his wife, Julie) and spending the past 15 years raising his own 3 children (Travis, Ryan and Carlene) in Grand Rapids. Rod enjoys the outdoors, whether he is fishing, hunting, golfing, camping.

Rod simply stated is a gift to anyone who is fortunate to get his services. Rod makes sure you get the best deal… that fits your needs and not just a deal! Rod makes sure you are informed and educated throughout the process. The best part of all, he takes the time to tailor your loan to your goals with several options. I’m not sure if his processing team is the same for every loan but they were fantastic as well! Working with Rod I felt that small town neighbor vibe , with Big time results!

Rod was referred to us, and it was an absolute blessing that he was. We had been working with another company that was not nearly as responsive and helpful during the process. We felt at ease and got our dream home.

The BEST in communicating with us every step of the way. No surprises. No issues. We have been doing business with Rod for years…..wouldn’t have it any other way.

Rod was truly committed to making this important purchase of our dream home. HE went above and beyond.  As a small business owner, during a pandemic, there was a whole new degree of difficulty. Rod’s communication was thorough, accurate and always on time. The seamless technology he used ensured that collecting all of the documents painless.  We would definitely recommend working with Rod to purchase your next home!

Rod and staff were absolutely amazing through my home buying process. Rod guided me through it step by step and took the time to explain everything to me. He was quick to respond to all of my questions and concerns. I have no doubt that him and his staff looked out for my best interest. They guided me in the right direction to help make the best decision for me.  I will 100% refer Rod to anyone I know looking to purchase a home.

Working with Rod was a great experience! After much frustration with other lenders, our realtor suggested to speak with Rod at MI Mutual. From the get go, Rod was wonderful! He was patient, did a lot of number crunching for us, took the time to explain and offer solutions, and was always timely in responses, whether it was by email or phone. Rod was there to offer his expertise and set us up for success at every point in this process. I highly recommended him! You can’t go wrong.

Rod went above and beyond for my wife and I in these trying times.  Rod was available all hours of the day and holiday.  Our purchase absolutely would not have been an option without Rod.  I am confident of that.

From start to finish Rod was transparent about what my options were and how each would impact me. He communicated each step and what I was to expect throughout the refinance process. He was professional and always available. I would highly recommend Rod at MIMutual.

Very fast and organized process. I interviewed six lenders, and Rod was the fastest to respond, the most organized, and provided the most accurate information.

Jonathan S

Muskegon Heights, MI

I cant say enough! Communication was always exceptionally prompt and he was very adaptive to my needs as things changed. I felt that every step of the way I was educated as needed and he never allowed me to make a decision that would be poor for me even if it would have lead to a quicker close for him. I never once felt like a client. Thanks Rod!
