Amir Syed is a residential mortgage lender and entrepreneur who educates and serves the needs of new homebuyers and homeowners. Since starting his mortgage lending career in 2003, Amir has helped his clients stay within their means through careful discussion around the monthly payment and the down payment. “Talking through affordability ‘sweet spots’ with our clients, especially the first timers, is so important and sometimes those conversations are uncomfortable but ultimately met with gratitude.”
Having a mom who was a teacher, Amir prides himself on his effective communication skills and tailored coaching style. Be it writing, speaking, one-on-one meetings, or a giant YouTube audience (search Amir Syed on YouTube and view his countless “Mortgage Minute” videos), Amir’s enthusiasm for patient education shines through.
Amir, on average, receives anywhere between 70-100 new referrals monthly, 90%+ of those all from word of mouth. “It’s a testament to the experience we provide to each and every client we help. We’re very clear with each client that we have a ‘wow service’ standard we obsess over in order to create more and more raving fans. From the very moment we initially connect with them, throughout the house hunt, the day of closing and onwards, we want to wow them. They are #1.”
When he’s not educating clients, you can find him on the golf course – he’s hit a hole-in-one (“my eyes were closed”, says Amir) – volunteering with the Grip Outreach for Youth, enjoying a good book or traveling with his wife, who can attest to his perpetually giving personality. He makes her a fresh cup of French Press coffee every single morning.
Besides being an avid golfer, Amir once played basketball with both Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, and tends to dominate the air hockey table. And, he can say “how are you?” in over 20 different languages (feel free to test his skills on this).
