Karth Barr


Karth Barr’s passion for helping clients get into their dream home began early in his career. Now, 27 years later, providing clients the financial education they need to get the most out of their home purchase or refinance still fuels his drive to win more business throughout the Chicago market and surrounding areas.

His goal is to provide an unparalleled level of service to his clients, and to develop relationships that foster a client-for-life mentality. Each new relationship begins with an introductory meeting, where Karth listens actively to his prospective clients’ unique goals and current financial circumstances. Together, Karth and his borrowers develop a plan for reaching those goals through homeownership.

To date, Karth has originated more than $850 million in residential mortgages, with year-over-year growth of 20 percent. He has previously been recognized by Scotsman Guide as one of the nation’s TopOriginators, in both units closed and volume funded.

Karth gets it done quickly, AND he gets it done the right way — with his clients’ needs and goals in mind AT ALL TIMES.
