Certified Mortgage Advisor Neil Anders – Branch Manager of American Financial Network in Newport Beach, California – has nearly two decades of experience helping his many grateful clients achieve their financial goals. Honest, intelligent and hardworking, Neil has dedicated himself to providing top-of-the-line customer service, and this has translated into a thriving business that sees his branch averaging over $50 million dollars every month, and he has personally funded over 7,000 transactions during his lengthy career.
Neil, a teen prodigy who graduated from high school at fifteen and earned his first college degree at seventeen, began his career in mortgages at an early age. “I had a friend who opened a mortgage company,” he recalls, “and I loved the financial upside of the business.” Neil readily admits that initially, his primary goal was making money. The 2008 – 2009 financial crisis hit him as hard as it did his clients, however, forcing his own properties into foreclosure. It was that crisis that plunged Neil into a deep introspection that resulted in a new and unwavering commitment to placing his clients’ needs front and center during every transaction. “We always put the customer first,” he says, and his perfect, five-star overall rating on Zillow.com – comprised of well over a hundred glowing reviews – is a testament to that ethos.
Neil is justifiably proud of both his affiliation with American Financial Network and the sincerely dedicated team he oversees. “One thing I know,” he says, “is that good salespeople love their product, but great salespeople love their clients.” Neil and his team offer every loan product available in the United States, and he is able to do business in all fifty of them. He is even more proud of the solid, long-lasting relationships he and his team forge with their many clients and Realtor partners. “We’re not just one of their preferred lenders,” he explains. “We are legitimately their partner, which means we want to give back to them and service them in any way possible.”
Currently, an impressive ninety percent of Neil and his team’s business comes from referrals from Realtors and past, satisfied clients, a remarkable achievement by any measure, but more so in the highly competitive world of finance. Much of this can be traced back to the excellent communication between Neil and his buyers and real estate agents. “We stay in constant touch with everyone involved in the transaction, not just the buyer’s agent, but the seller’s as well,” says Neil, “because if you’re a seller’s agent, your clients are nervous, and they want to know what’s going on.”
“I definitely love the fact that every day is potentially a challenge,” replies Neil, when asked what he enjoys most about his job. “I also like the fact that there are always new situations and guidelines in the industry, and it’s a constant challenge to keep myself and my team educated and up to date on all the current loan availabilities and financing options out there.”
Anyone looking for an ethical, empathetic and deeply knowledgeable mortgage professional need look no further than Neil Anders and American Financial Network. “My time with AFN has been the most rewarding of my life,” he says, “and I feel like my company and team are at the height of the market when it comes to serving clients, communication and education. I’m really proud of that.”
