114 N. Edgefield Front

From the outside, this Winnetka Heights bungalow is totally traditional — its slate gray clapboard exterior and gabled roof with decorative brackets fits in perfectly with the other Arts & Crafts and Prairie Style homes in this historic conservation district. But inside you’ll find something completely unexpected.

It’s homes like these, ones full of surprises and some of the best finishes that are worthy of being named a High Caliber Home of the Week. And when you find a High Caliber Home, contact Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans to ensure you soar through pre-approval and are ready to make your best and highest offer in our crazy-hot market.

Not only does Rick Hodges provide great mortgage advice, but he’s also the go-to guy for advice on your next trip to New England. With experience as a top-producing Realtor and with record referrals as a loan officer, Hodges is trusted by his clients to know the ins and outs of both sides of the transaction. So it’s no wonder that Hodges is a sought-after home loan expert by both first-time homebuyers and families seeking the perfect vacation escape.

That’s the kind of value you can find in the home loan professionals at Guardian Mortgage. Naturally, Hodges was a shoo-in for our April Guardian Angel at Guardian Mortgage. When you work with one of the lending experts in this hometown brand, you’ll find energy, expertise, and the willingness to go above and beyond even in the most challenging market conditions. That fits Rick Hodges to a tee!

We were lucky enough to catch up with Hodges before he runs off for a summer in Nantucket. Jump to find out more about this month’s Guardian Angel.
