Though his company's branding is distinctly local, Neighborhood Loans President Reno Manuele has a vision that stretches far beyond his Lombard base of operations. Since its acquisition in 2009, Neighborhood Loans has grown from just a handful of staff to about 30 loan officers and five loan processors serving greater Chicagoland. For his role in this success, Manuele was named among the "40 Under 40" most influential mortgage professionals in the nation by National Mortgage Professional magazine. He was also featured in the Chicago Agent Magazine for the Who's Who in Chicagoland Real Estate in 2013.
"I love my career because I enjoy helping homeowners and Realtors close mortgage transactions," Manuele says, identifying one of the driving forces behind his achievements. "I am very passionate about the mortgage business, which is why I am successful at it."
Past clients are also quick to praise his strong self-motivation and his determination to see difficult loans through to closing. His commitment to amazing customer service even means making himself available 24/7, fielding calls from Realtors and builders into the evening and throughout the weekend.
Manuele is currently working on various projects as the in-house lender for new developments in Mount Prospect and Burr Ridge. Looking ahead, he hopes to oversee the continued growth of his company with the goal of becoming one of the top lenders in Chicagoland within the next few years.
If past trends are any indication, Neighborhood Loans could very well be coming to your neighborhood in the near future.
