Newport Beach stands out from Southern California’s prime real estate destinations thanks to its ten-mile beachline, world-famous surf spots, breathtaking views, and its location just within an hour drive from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. This SoCal gem used to attract scores of Hollywood celebrities in the past: John Wayne, Shirley Temple, Humphry Bogart, and other stars resided or kept their boats in Newport Beach. Since the 1930s, Newport Beach has been one of the best places in Southern California to invest in real estate. With the limited supply of new housing, Newport Beach has been a seller’s market for a long time. And this is still more so now.
In a city the size and beauty of Newport Beach whose 87,000 population swells by 20,000 to 100,000 tourists coming to the city daily in summer months, the real estate market has always been hot. For those willing to invest in the city’s realty, finding a knowledgeable and reliable advisor is critical. One of the longest-serving and most experienced Newport Beach mortgage advisors is Neil Anders. As the current V.P. of Sales at Trusted Rate, Anders garnered 8 years of experience as the Branch Manager of American Financial Network in Newport Beach. With almost two decades helping hundreds of clients attain their financial goals under his belt, Neil used to be the lynchpin of his branch that provided over $50 million worth of financing a month. During his almost twenty-year career in the financial consulting business Neil funded over 7,000 transactions, i.e. one a day over twenty years, an amazing performance by any measure. If past performance is an indication of a future progress, Neil’s recent move to Trusted Rate to spearhead their sales bodes well for the organization’s business.
Moving steadily up the career path, Neil showed the makings of a future financier early on. He graduated from school at the age of 15, and obtained his first college degree when he was 17. The early bird gets the worm. He joined his friend’s mortgage company having fallen in love with the financial aspect of the real estate business. Initially, his primary goal was to make money, a perfectly understandable and plausible young man’s wish. However, having been hard hit by the 2008-2009 financial crisis personally and seeing his clients suffer huge losses, Neil re-evaluated his priorities putting his clients’ needs first. Neil’s exemplary Zillow.com five-star rating clearly attests to his client-first attitude.
As part of Trusted Rate now, Neil and his team can conduct business in each of the fifty states and offer every loan product available nationwide. Neil’s unrivaled lending potential is the basis of his solid and mutually beneficial partnership with Realtors. “We are not just one of their preferred lenders,” explains Neil. “We are legitimately their partner, which means we want give back to them and service them in any way possible.” The symbiosis brings spectacular results: ninety percent of Neil’s and his team’s business has been generated through word-of-mouth recommendations from Realtors and happy clients, a spectacular result by the highly competitive industry’s standards. Neil attributes this to staying constantly in touch with all the sides of a real estate transaction, both from the seller’s and buyer’s side. The reciprocal openness eliminates doubts and fears.
Once asked about what he liked most about his job, Neil said he appreciated that every day presented a challenge, a new situation or new industry regulations he needed to quickly adapt to. The ongoing education keeps him and his team agile, flexible, and adaptable to the new realities such as the latest financing options available, and many other factors.
Whether you are looking to buy property in Newport Beach or elsewhere, financial advice from Neil Anders and his local Trusted Rate team will guarantee a smooth transaction. Some Zilllow customer reviews are so eloquent that they leave no doubt Neil’s team just cannot fail.
