Doug Katz graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point with a Bachelor’s Degree in Behavioral Science and Leadership Management. After graduating, he served five years in the US Army as a Field Artillery Officer. Following his military service, Doug spent several years in the telecommunications industry working in the operations and marketing for a major equipment manufacturer in the Chicago suburbs.

Throughout his career, he has consistently used his expansive knowledge, practical experience, work ethic, and exceptional customer service to help his clients achieve their goals. Doug leverages his skills and talents to solve problems quickly and efficiently through the mortgage process. While he has experience serving all types of clients, Doug has exceptional experience in the investment funding segment.  He served as the SVP of Sales and Marketing for Jordan Capital Finance (now Finance America), a premier company in the fix-and-flip and buy-and-hold real estate markets.

Doug lives in Trout Valley, IL with his wife of over 25 years, two of his children and his elderly father for whom he cares for.   His daughter is following in the family tradition of service as a cadet at the United States Coast Guard Academy.  When not working, Doug can be found in his home forge making a knife or in his home gym keeping fit.  Occasionally, he steps back onto the Aikido mat, where he has earned the rank of  Nidan (2nd Degree Black Belt).  Doug is also dedicated supporting the veteran community through active involvement in several philanthropic organizations.
