Surrounded by the lending industry’s very best, Ron Haddad collaborates with his support team and referral partners to provide white-glove service while scaling his transaction volume. As the senior vice president of residential mortgage lending at Key Mortgage Services, Ron has the loan-approval process down to a science and is quick adapting to shifts in the market. “Trying to get ahead of the market is much better than trying to catch up to the current one,” he explains. “I am always preparing for the next opportunity.”
Introduced to the ins and outs of the industry from a young age, Haddad started his career working in financial services and spent time at Chicago Board of Trade in treasury futures before transitioning to the mortgage industry 16 years ago.
Recognized by the Scotsman Guide and National Mortgage News as one of the top loan officers in the nation, he is also the top loan officer companywide for purchase transactions and a recipient of the Illinois Mortgage Banker Association’s Best in the Business award. “I’m generous with my time and loyal to my clients and referral partners,” says Haddad.
Throughout his career, Ron has built a 100% referral-based business through his ever-expanding network of realtors, attorneys, builders, insurance agents, financial planners and past clients. Ron prefers to connect with his customers early in the process to review their goals and address any questions, as he prioritizes relationships over conducting a quick and impersonal transaction.
Haddad is an avid watch collector and recently took the leap into amateur watchmaking. He enjoys spending time with his family and finds strength and motivation through the support of his wife, Anne, and his daughters, Allie and Abbie.
