Employee Spotlight: Joseph “Joe” LaGiglia – The Mortgage Maestro at Oak Leaf Community Mortgage!

Meet Joe LaGiglia, our esteemed Senior Mortgage Originator at Oak Leaf Community Mortgage, a proud member of the North Shore Trust and Savings family since September 2023. Joe’s journey in the mortgage lending realm began back in 1998, and he’s been making waves ever since with his deep commitment and unparalleled expertise.

A proud alumnus of the DeVry Institute of Technology, Joe’s skills and dedication have earned him widespread recognition in the industry. He’s been a consistent figure in the Scotsman Guide’s list of top-producing residential mortgage originators from 2020 through 2024. His excellence has also been celebrated locally, with multiple wins as the Herald News “Best Mortgage Broker” of Will County from 2016 to 2023.

Joe lives by a powerful mantra: “I strive to help families survive and thrive.” For Joe, mortgage lending isn’t just about the numbers; it’s about forging genuine connections and making a lasting impact on people’s lives. He’s a firm believer in the collective uplift, often saying, “all ships rise with the tide.”

What drives Joe is the chance to play a pivotal role in someone’s life story. “Helping a family finance their dream home or save through refinancing is incredibly rewarding,” he says. For Joe, it’s more than just a transaction; it’s about being a reliable companion in one of life’s most significant moments.

Joe’s commitment extends beyond his professional life. He’s an active figure in his community, serving on the leadership team of the Community Christian Church in Plainfield, being a proud Lion since 2016, engaging with the Plainfield Shorewood Area Chamber of Commerce, and leading as the President of Above & Beyond Networkers. Joe also co-hosts “#OfficeHoursLIVE” on Facebook every Saturday at 8am CT, bringing the community together to share and grow collectively.

Did you know? Joe is also a licensed officiant, having brought 25 couples together in marriage with his unique personal touch. He’s eagerly preparing for his 26th ceremony in June 2024.

When the mortgage deals are done, Joe loves spending quality time with his wife Kandice and their kids, Evie and Will. An avid learner, Joe is always on the lookout for the latest in marketing and technology. A fan of 80s classics, golf, and family trips, Joe knows the importance of balancing a hard day’s work with quality downtime.

Join us in celebrating Joe LaGiglia – a true Mortgage Maestro who’s not just shaping the future of mortgage lending but also making a profound difference in the lives he touches and the community he serves.
