Justin Lopatin

Private Mortgage Banker
PERL Mortgage, Inc.

Referrals are the lifeblood for many in the mortgage world, and thankfully for PERL Mortgage’s Justin Lopatin, his name comes highly recommended. A master networker, this private mortgage banker of eight years is also in high demand with another kind of network: the news. His commentary has been featured by outlets such as CBS 2 News, MSN Money and The Wall Street Journal.

Having endured a frustrating homebuying experience before beginning his career, Lopatin entered the industry with a simple rule: treat every client like his mother.

“Follow that rule, and you will always be successful in sales,” he says. “I always put my best foot forward, and I’m very respectful. I never judge or make assumptions. I also educate my clients instead of trying to ‘sell’ them. People do not want to be sold; they want to understand. Sincerity and honesty always prevail.”

His commitment to this ideal has meant staying in constant contact with clients and agents via weekly status updates and returning every call within 24 hours. He has also put in place a production team to help him prioritize tasks and maintain his high level of service.

Not one to rest on his laurels, Lopatin has many ambitious projects planned for 2013, and his ultimate goal is to become one of the nation’s top producers.

While it is Lopatin’s mother who inspires the tone of his client interactions, his other parent is the source of inspiration for his professional zeal.

“My father is an immigrant and came to this country with nothing,” he says. “Through hard work and determination he was able to earn an honest living and provide for his family. Whenever I get discouraged or encounter a challenge I think about the hurdles my father overcame, and I quickly regain my focus.”
