With more than 17 years in the mortgage industry, Senior Mortgage Loan Officer Emma Butler of the Butler Group at Neighborhood Loans has seen many variable markets. However, one thing that has remained constant is her desire to build her business on relationships “I am a relationship lender, I get to know my clients and referral partners on a personal level,” Butler says. “I listen to their stories and ultimate goals and find ways to assist in achieving them.” Butler believes this is why her clients and referral partners alike reach out time and time again. She truly is proof that relationships are the cornerstone of any successful business.
As a strong female force in the lending industry, she has carved out a name for herself through her sincere relationship building and tremendous dedication. Two- time Scotsman Guide award recipient, Butler exceeded her previous year’s sales, with more than $50 million in 2022. She attributes her growth to her continued supportive environment at Neighborhood Loans along with the time and effort put into her passion.
Butler has solidified her successful business by providing solid real estate and mortgage advice for her clients, being easily accessible while they search for their dream home, knowing exactly what they can afford and how to make sound financial decisions to build wealth.
Butler believes in full transparency and communication throughout the loan process for all involved.
Butler and her team, The Butler Group, work hard to achieve success but also find time to have fun with clients and industry partners. She believes in balancing working relationships with a fulfilling life outside of work. You can often see her biking and running on the lakefront. And she adores anything food-related: Monthly dinners, group happy hours, client appreciation parties and even dinners at her house for referral partners all help build solid relationships. Plus, for Butler, they’re one of her favorite parts of the business.
