The top producer in the country for Fifth Third Bank since 2012, Tony Lupescu is thorough and communicative, promising a deftly handled process from beginning to end. Ranking No. 52 among loan officers nationwide for total production volume in 2019 by Scotsman Guide, the senior loan officer has funded over $1 billion in mortgages throughout his 16-year career, closing more than $200 million in loans last year alone.
Lupescu says his team’s production-line approach ensures a smooth and efficient transaction. “Our clients and business partners are extremely confident in our work,” he says. “Each member of my team has mastered their respective area; we have seen many different loan scenarios and know what steps to take and how to avoid potential roadblocks.”
Specializing in physician loan programs, Lupescu has a stellar reputation among the medical community across the country, earning him physician client referrals from real estate professionals around the United States. “I have long-standing relationships with many real estate agents because their clients are consistently happy with our services,” he explains, adding that he also receives many referrals from past clients.
As a licensed CPA, Lupescu applies the experience gained from his former career to obtain deals for clients with complicated tax returns. He’s particularly skilled at assisting those who are self-employed. “My background helps me understand their business and ask the proper and necessary questions,” he says.
Lupescu also looks for ways to give back to the community. For the last six years, he has sponsored a Make-A-Wish event in Chicago. “I think it is a great organization, and it is great to see some wishes come true for kids going through extremely difficult times,” he says.
