TOP MORTGAGE PROFESSIONAL IN COLORADO BRIAN PINTAR
At the core of Brian Pintar’s success is his desire to give back. Born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin he graduated from Marquette University with a wrestling scholarship and moved to Chicago in 1995 to begin his tenure in the mortgage industry. After two-and-a-half years in Chicago, he made a life change and moved to Colorado where he is now the branch manager for NFM Lending based in Greenwood Village.
Brian says 2020 has been his best year yet in the business. “Part of the reason is the market conditions, but the major factor is because I’ve restructured my charity, Pay It Forward Initiative,” he notes. When a client closes a loan with NFM Lending, Brian will contribute $150 towards a pre-selected charity. “For our most recent charity, we did a 60-day spotlight, closed 80 in volume, and I’ll be writing a check for $12,000,” he asserts.
Brian reports that 100% of his business is referral clientele. “I’m very grateful to my referral partners, which are agents, former clients, and local businesses,” he notes. Brian has broad knowledge of the financial market and mortgage industry, so he focuses on educating his clients to gain their trust. His expert guidance empowers them to feel confident and more comfortable with the mortgage process. His dynamic personality along with expertise has been essential in delivering unsurpassed service to both clients and Realtor partners over the years.
It’s not surprising that he receives nothing but stellar reviews for his esteemed work ethic and values. One client recently wrote:
“Brian and his team are very experienced and knowledgeable in preparing and setting up a mortgage. He met with us one on one and answered all our questions. He got us in touch with specific people on his team that were extremely responsive to all our concerns. I felt informed and protected throughout the process. Highly recommend!”
Brian has received many prestigious industry awards, including Scotsman Guide Top Originator in 2015 and Top Producer in 2019. He is a five-time recipient of the Five-Star Mortgage Professional Award and is one of only 125 professionals to ever receive this award five years in a row.
“I’m proud to say that my team has decades of mortgage experience,” he says. “They collectively and frequently communicate with all parties involved in the home-buying transaction, resulting in a professional and smooth experience.”
Brian maintains contact with his clientele by using a system he terms, “Wednesday ABC calls,” meaning he calls clients with their last names ending in a specific letter of the alphabet. “It ends up we reach out to someone twice a year,” he says. He also sends out birthday cards and has an email campaign featuring videos about the charities to which they donated.
Almost as important as helping his clients with homeownership, Brian’s goal in life is to give, both personally and professionally, without the expectation of receiving. In addition to his initiative, Brian is involved with non-profits like the Ronald McDonald House and has a mandatory Change the Planet week for which his team members participate in charitable activities.
When not working or donating his time, Brian loves being with his wife and three kids. “We love to do anything outdoors, things like playing tennis, hiking, and skiing in the winter,” he says.
As for the future of his business, Brian hopes to expand by hiring like-minded staff. “When I interview new people, I let them know, ‘Your 5-year plan needs to be to make $1 million and then to open a 501 3c,” he says. “I hope to turn this industry, which has somewhat of a reputation of being somewhat self-centered, into one that gives back to the community.”
