Choose the Right Home Loan Expert
Alfredo Arteaga began his career in mortgage banking in 2005. While in college, Alfredo thought he wanted to be a physical therapist. Then a friend recruited him to do a summer internship for a publishing company on the East Coast. Alfredo worked 12 hours a day, six days a week -- and loved it. Fast forward some years later, and while at a “crossroads” in his career, a good friend who worked in the wholesale lending industry suggested lending as a career option for Alfredo. After all, he loved talking on the phone, an important trait for a lender. “I enjoy being on the phone all day. I actually love cold-calling, it’s very natural for me,” Alfredo says. “I’ll call anyone!”
Because of Alfredo’s personality and hard work, it did not take long for him to find his way as a new lender. He realizes it can take time to learn a new job, but he found that doesn’t have to be a long period. “People buy from who they like and who they want to do business with,” he says. “It’s not always about who has the best price or product. Being genuine, honest and putting your customers’ needs before yours goes a long way, and people definitely appreciate that.”
For Alfredo, the most important part of his job is upholding a quote he likes to cite from Albert Einstein. "Try not to be a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value"
Life outside of work for Alfredo centers around his wife and two young children, and staying physically fit. He also donates to the Operation Supply Drop, which services active-duty military, Veterans and their families.
