For Drew Boland, senior vice president of mortgage lending with Proper Rate, 17 years of lending experience and expertise across conventional and jumbo loans comes with the benefit of knowing you can solve any problem.
“My clients can expect to develop a personal relationship with me and get quick, accurate answers to all their questions and concerns,” he says. “This is part of why my business is 100% referral based.” Unsurprisingly, Boland is a member of the Referral Loop chapter of the BNI networking group, one of the most successful professional networking groups in Chicago. He’s also a voting member of the Guaranteed Rate Foundation and has won the President’s Club honor a whopping 14 times. He’s also a four-time Chairman’s Club recipient, closing more than $230 million in funded loans in 2020 and $130 million so far this year.
“My business has increased more than 70% these past three years,” he says. “But I stay committed to constantly improving the loan approval to closing process and still providing a personal experience to each client.” A top 1% mortgage originator in the U.S., according to Mortgage Executive Magazine, Boland’s ability to create hands-on customer service with a calm demeanor and quick responses is a winning combination for so many clients. “I’m known for having a strong work ethic, honesty, integrity and attention to detail,” he says.
Leading his team, Boland says, he feels that there’s no ceiling to the level of service they can provide or the amount of deals they can close. “Our team structure and business plan are set up to scale for as many clients or referral partners as we can affiliate with.” Unparalleled service and growth don’t always go hand-in-hand, but with a proven system, years of experience, dedication to detail and fantastic customer service, Boland and his team are doing just that.
