With a compassionate attitude and a gift for educating her clients every step of the way, Liz Ryan stands out in the mortgage industry. Liz’s love of the business comes through in her attention to detail and constant availability for her clients, and in addition to her 17 years of experience in the mortgage industry she also draws on four years of experience as a real estate agent. Since 2005, Liz has been helping her mortgage clients accomplish their goals and achieve the dream of homeownership.
With CrossCountry Mortgage, Liz is a producing sales manager. Along with her colleagues Mike Caras and Jonathan Charles, Liz serves Newburyport and the surrounding area. An impressive 95% of Liz’s business comes from referral clients, and it’s easy to see why people trust her to take care of their friends and family. “I really care,” Liz explains. “That’s the key to success. I get involved with my clients and try to find what’s important to them. I make them feel good and help them stay calm, because it’s a very emotional process to buy a home. I’m always there for them, and if they call me late at night or on the weekend, I will answer the phone.”
Liz works with all types of loans, from VA and FHA to jumbos, conventional loans, and many others, including less common types such as bank statement loans. She helps clients navigate the process and stay informed. “My heart really is with first-time homebuyers,” Liz says. “I always wanted to be a teacher growing up, so I like to educate my clients.”
Giving back to her community is important to Liz. She is a founding member of Amesbury BNI, of which she was president for two years. Liz is also involved with the Amesbury Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Newburyport REALTOR® Association, and the North Shore REALTOR® Association. When she is not working, Liz enjoys spending time with her grandkids and her rescue dog, Woody.
Looking toward the future, Liz says, “I want to continue to grow my business, hire some more loan officers, and continue to try to beat my numbers. I am licensed in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine, and I also want to get my Florida license.” Above all, Liz says, “I just love this business. I love helping people get what they need and want. There’s nothing more gratifying than to see people at the closing table with a key in their hand, getting the home of their dreams. It’s so satisfying, and it’s what I love about the mortgage business.”
