Markeita Roush-Wedlake grew up 90 miles outside of Chicago in the small town of Rockford, Illinois. Though she now lives in San Diego, her heart is still with the Chicago Bears. She takes pride in knowing more about football than most, and loves spending her weekends watching the games with friends and family.
When asked what she would do if she won the lottery, “Travel, travel travel,” she says. “My family lives near Chicago and I have friends that are spread out across the United States, but I’d also love to see Italy, Greece, and Spain.”
Markeita is thoughtful and energetic and extremely dedicated to helping others. She finds the biggest reward when she helps others succeed. “I love people and their stories and find joy in helping others create their dream home.” she says.
As a Personal Loan Manager, Markeita is the main point of contact after a loan goes into process for all parties involved — real estate agents, escrow agents, and borrowers.
Markeita started in the mortgage business in 2001 as an assistant to the Regional Renovation Manager and has spent her entire career in that specialty of renovation loans. After joining the Gaylord-Hansen Team in 2017, her expertise has expanded to other mortgage products, though she still remains our go-to renovation gal!
She loves people and their stories and finds joy in helping them start a new chapter with a customized home!
