Twenty years ago, an old friend talked Domenic Noia into joining the mortgage industry, and today he loves the work more than ever. He originates conventional, FHA, VA and jumbo loans for everyone from first-time borrowers to move-up buyers. The most satisfying moment of the process comes at the end. “I love making the deal happen and seeing my clients’ smiles at the closing table,” he says.
While Noia works hard to stay up to date on the latest mortgage products and how to best facilitate loans, what sets him apart is the personal touch. “Making people feel special is a really important element of my business. To me, everyone is family,” he says.
Noia is supported by a professional and efficient team lead by his assistant, Jamie Godzicki. He currently manages two Neighborhood Loans locations and notes that their approach takes the pressure off clients and agent partners. “My team is very process-driven, but that’s exactly what makes us fun to work with. The harder we work, the easier it is for everyone to enjoy the experience,” he says.
With a clientele based on referrals, Noia’s numbers offer evidence of a growing business. For the past three years, he has been a member of Neighborhood Loans’ President’s Club. In 2019, he reached nearly $30 million in individual production and is now on pace for $50 million in 2020. “I knew seven years ago when I joined the Neighborhood Loans team that I’d made the right decision. From the moment I sat down with Tony and Reno and saw their vision, I knew I was joining the right team,” he says.
One of the secrets to Noia’s success and his proudest moment in the past year was marrying the love of his life, Christina. “My wife and two children are everything to me. They’ve changed my life in ways words could never explain and are the driving factor in my success,” he says.
