As president of Neighborhood Loans, Reno Manuele’s primary goal is to help Chicagoland residents achieve their dream of homeownership. His commitment to servicing the residential lending community has earned him distinction as one of National Mortgage Professional magazine’s “40 Under 40 Most Influential Mortgage Professionals in the Nation” as well as recognition in Chicago Agent magazine’s “Who’s Who in Chicagoland Real Estate.” “I believe that my relentless passion for the industry is why I have been successful in making Neighborhood Loans an industry leader within the residential lending community,” he says
Manuele and his partner, Tony Ameti, purchased Neighborhood Loans in 2009 to take control of the total lending process. His team’s subject matter expertise and unwavering commitment to providing the best loan product has made Neighborhood Loans the preferred lender for many borrowers navigating the complexities of buying a home. “We are in constant communication with our clients to ensure they know what is happening at each step of the process,” he explains. “Our ability to forecast market trends helps us determine which program will best meet their needs and secure their future.”
That approach has garnered the company numerous accolades, including recognition by INC 5000 as the fastest-growing residential mortgage lender in Illinois and the third-fastest-growing residential mortgage lender in the nation in 2015. National Mortgage Professional Magazine also honored Neighborhood Loans as one of the country’s Top 100 Mortgage Employers. In addition, Fortune named Neighborhood Loans among their Top 20 Best Places to Work. “We go the extra mile for our clients, and those recognitions prove our commitment to exceeding the borrower’s expectations with unparalleled service,” Manuele says. His company recently became a Full Eagle FHA Direct Endorsed Lender, a designation reserved for residential mortgage lenders that exemplify and abide by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s standards.
Manuele proudly supports the Chicago Association of Realtors, National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals, Mainstreet Organization of Realtors, Realtors Against Homelessness, and Chicago Association of Realtors Young Professionals Network. “My family is what inspires me to continue our exponential growth and become the most renowned residential mortgage lender.” Manuele’s stellar achievements prove that he is well on his way to accomplishing that goal.
