Private Mortgage Banking, Perl Mortgage
Amir Syed is a rising star in residential lending. He was a keynote speaker for the Extreme Entrepreneurship National Tour in 2011, which features the top young entrepreneurs in the U.S., and he just completed a two-year board member term with the Illinois Mortgage Bankers Association.
Syed, a private mortgage banker at Perl Mortgage, says he is looking to build upon that recognition with new, cutting-edge forays into multimedia production.
“I am currently working with Ben Mahoney Productions to launch an exciting, high-quality video series showcasing specific Chicago neighborhoods with select agents,” he says. “I want to be positioned as the most recognized and trusted home mortgage source in Chicago, and intelligent real estate radio and video should catapult this mission.”
At Perl Mortgage, Syed works alongside five of the nation’s top-producing lenders, and he says that two of those lenders are the firm’s owners.
“I love that they are involved on the ground floor,” he says. “It says a lot.”
Whether he’s working or on the basketball court (which he calls “the ultimate team sport”), Syed is approaching his career with no limitations.
“The smartest, most creative and confident person wins,” he says. “There are no ceilings and Chicago is full of opportunities.”
