Whether it’s first-time homebuyers, new or seasoned investors, we’re committed to sharing the steps that help our neighbors and partners get to ‘the green’.”

Shana Jones initially started in the mortgage business over two decades ago. After graduating from DePaul University in 1985 with a BS in Business, she started her career in the mortgage industry.  Several years later, she decided to acquire a mortgage broker license, and purchase a multi-unit building on Westside of Chicago.  After renovating the building, she opened the Loan Depot, a owned and operated, FHA federally approved and funded, mortgage brokerage firm.

It was really unheard of for that type of business to be in such a location.  It was a blessing and an opportunity for me and our clients. There was a dire need and opportunity for a local mortgage lender to reside and service that community.”

Today, Shana is the President & CEO of Housing Depot Inc., a real estate investment and training firm.  She is on a mission to transform lives and rebuild communities, while training and supporting investors to use real estate as a means to generate both primary and supplemental sources of income. This is achieved through a variety of services offered for homebuyers, investors, landlords and tenants.

In her freetime, Shana enjoys traveling abroad, cooking and spending time with her daughter, Dimitra. Despite her busy schedule, she is adamant about being present for all her daughter’s extracurricular activities and playing an active role in her life.
