Eduardo G. Perez Jr., a CEO, and co-founder of Equity Prime Mortgage has always had a passion for helping people with their financial needs. Before the company’s inception in 2008, he worked as a broker, gaining more experience in the industry and what it takes to provide lending services to consumers while working collectively with brokers. The company’s motto, Empower People More, lives true to its name as Perez and his team put forth the effort to help people become the absolute best versions of themselves.
“As a licensed mortgage lender, we have operations that extend throughout the country and provide many mortgage products to help each client with their specific needs. Our team remains dedicated to helping each client while leaving them with a sense of empowerment,” shared Eduardo G. Perez Jr. “It doesn’t matter if our clients want to finance their American dream or need training and development. We’re all in and ready to help those who need it. We know what it’s like to experience adversity because we started this company during the Great Recession of 2008. The economic decline led to the housing market’s collapse and naturally took a toll on employee morale. However, we remained goal-oriented and focused enough to get through that challenging period.”
Learning how to handle the initial crisis during the recession helped prepare the company for the pandemic, making it easier for Perez Jr. and his team to develop strategies that work. In addition, the team could adapt better to the many challenges that developed during the start and height of the global pandemic because of their previous experience working through one of the most challenging periods for residents of the United States.
Staying focused while providing an unmatched level of customer service worked in favor of Equity Prime Mortgage, which received recognition as part of the Inc. 5000 and the nation’s top mortgage brokers. In addition to the company’s achievements, Eduardo G. Perez Jr. has earned awards for his knowledge, collaboration efforts, and productivity. His name is displayed on the 40 Most Influential Mortgage Professional Under 40 in National Mortgage Professionals Magazine. As a Certified Mortgage Banker, he sat on the NAHREP’s Corporate Board of Governors and received the title of Chairman of NAHREP in 2021.
“When people ask me how I’ve managed to succeed in an ever-evolving industry that has many ups and downs, I tell them that it’s my passion for the mortgage industry and genuine love of helping people. I want to help people live the American dream while providing them with mortgage solutions that work in their favor. Handling the responsibilities that I have isn’t easy, but it’s worth it when you know it makes a difference,” said Perez Jr. “People choose our company because they know we have their best interest at heart. We want to provide the absolute best mortgage solution that fits the needs of each customer based on their unique situations. It sets us apart and has allowed us to achieve incredible success over the years.”
Equity Prime Mortgage continues to evolve, expand, and grow as a leading company in the industry, with plans to branch out to other sectors.
