While realtors may encounter cash buyers from time to time, most buyers choose loans for real estate purchases. Since these loans are so common, buyers tend to consult with their realtors when choosing lenders.

With that in mind, a working relationship between realtors and mortgage companies benefits everyone involved. Homebuyers will have access to a wider variety of lending options and an expedited approval process, while realtors earn their commission quicker and more efficiently. 

A and N Mortgage can provide realtors with tangible benefits and improvements that few other companies do — and we’re happy to get into them right here! 

A and N Mortgage

Realtors have a significant duty to perform when recommending loan mortgage companies to their clients. Homebuyers make one of the most important financial decisions of their lives when they choose to buy a home — and they only want to submit their mortgage application to trustworthy, reputable loan providers.

Luckily, that’s just what A and N Mortgage is! We’ve been recognized as one of the top 100 mortgage companies for the past five years, cementing our position in the industry. Our trustworthiness is perfectly illustrated by the A+ credit rating that we’ve had with BBB for the past decade. When a realtor works with us as their go-to mortgage company, they’re sure that their clients are in the right hands. 

Expert Loan Officers

One of the most significant advantages of A and N Mortgage is our high level of expertise. All of our loan officers possess an intricate knowledge of the Chicago housing market — making them perfect partners for any local real estate agent. 

A and N’s loan officers work hard to handle the processing of all loans with a personal touch from the beginning to end — unlike the assembly-line process of bigger banks. We prefer a more consultative, professional, and helpful approach to lending. Our loan officers will create the entire loan process around your clients’ real estate needs. 

Co-Branded Mobile App

Apart from our expert handling of all mortgage applications, A and N Mortgage wants to help all our referral partners from the real estate community more directly. That’s why the A and N smartphone app can be co-branded, helping real estate agents present a higher level of professionalism to their clients. 

The entire home-buying journey of each client can be tracked through this app. It takes a couple of clicks to install, and it immediately provides your clients with mortgage calculators and actionable financial insights. As long as they have an Internet connection on their phones, your clients will be able to check their home purchasing situation anywhere and anytime.

Customized Co-Marketing

The real estate industry is a competitive one, and A and N Mortgage understand that. We know that each realtor’s success depends on various factors, including their own self-promotional and marketing skills. Not everyone working as a realtor has the same amount of help with business development — but that’s where A and N can step in to help.

We sincerely believe in establishing long-term relationships with our referral partners among realtors — and we want our friends to grow and succeed. That’s why our in-house business development and marketing teams provide ample support through strategic campaigns. These campaigns can be custom-tailored for each specific referral partner, and they’re designed to encourage their growth. 

Our business flourishes when our business partners succeed — and we want to see that happen. And while our partners are numerous, none of them are just numbers. 

Networking Space and Support

The support that we provide to our referral partners extends to practical logistics as well. A and N Mortgage views our realtor partners as our strength — which is why we’ve invested in a spacious event space, which we make available to our referral partners as well.

It’s an open concept room, perfect for organizing educational seminars or other professional events — it can even double as a digital recording studio. This is more than just space you can use; our marketing and business development staff works with realtors side-by-side to help them organize charity events, networking parties, and client appreciation events. 

Timely Approval Process

The adage of “time is money” is true for realtors more than for most other professions. With so much of your income coming from commissions, achieving the biggest volume in the shortest amount of time becomes crucial.

Unfortunately, some mortgage applications take forever to complete. The underwriting process can be riddled with issues ranging from major credit concerns to minor omissions and typos that slow everything down considerably. 

However, that is not the case with A and N Mortgage. As a mortgage company, we do everything in our power to make the application process as streamlined as possible. Our in-house condo approval and underwriting departments work tirelessly to eliminate any disconnect or confusion that may happen, saving a lot of time and energy for our partners in the process. 

Support of Local Events Charities

A and N Mortgage would never succeed without the local community that props up the entire industry — and we’re well aware of that. 

That’s precisely why we frequently participate in companywide philanthropic events, and we’re more than happy to support the charitable causes of our referral partners as well. Building strength and wealth in the community means working on a better-shared future for us all! 

Benefits of Being a Banker 

A and N Mortgage is a direct lender, and that means plenty of benefits for realtors that become our referral partners. Our loan process is impeccably streamlined, thanks to the fact that it all happens under one roof our loan officers will handle the mortgage applications of your clients from start to finish. 

We have maintained stable investor relationships for more than a decade, netting A and N a well-deserved reputation of trustworthiness and industry leadership. All of our realtors can depend on us to deliver for their clients, with strong investor relations and an utterly centralized mortgage process

Educational Events

We are more than happy to co-host any educational webinars or live seminars for our partners all of the industry leaders we work with deserve to be at the top of their business. That provides a competitive edge to our referral partners and a wealth of experience and valuable information to their clients ultimately improving their mortgage experience immensely. 

Access to a Vast Amount of Products and Pricing

Over the years, we’ve worked hard to provide all kinds of solutions for a wide variety of homeowner needs. Today, we have access to more than thirty mortgage insurance companies, credit unions, banks, and other niche programs that your clients need. 

Our pricing model is specifically designed for the Chicagoland market — one of the nation’s most competitive real estate arenas next to Boston. With this in mind, our clients and referral partners have the added benefit of approachable fee structures and rates. 

As a local mortgage banker, A and N’s team is familiar with all the loan opportunities available to your clients. We may also be able to offer insight into any state or regional programs that might help your clients to secure a lower interest rate and save money. 

You Don’t Have to Worry About the Paperwork

The best thing about referring A and N Mortgage to your clients is not what you’ll have — it’s what you won’t have. And that’s worries about the paperwork and red tape involved with the approval process. 

With us, everything is managed under one roof — from the initial application to funding. This makes the loan process streamlined, and that’s the most significant advantage you get — along with our excellent rates and efficient services for your clients.
