Mike Petito - Sales Manager (Sales)

“Freedom is a place I truly feel valued and recognized for my success.”

Mike is responsible for coaching and developing a team of 10 loan advisors. He stays busy ensuring we balance the quality and quantity of loan applications, maintain compliance, and hit our sales targets week over week. When his team needs a lift to help reach their goals, Mike joins in alongside them to process loan applications.

What Mike enjoys most about his role is taking advisors under his wing, motivating and coaching them to reach new heights, personally and professionally. He believes the best way to accomplish this is with positive reinforcement and leading by example.

“Sometimes a loan advisor on my team will be struggling with a customer who is hesitant to move forward with a transaction. Instead of just telling my advisor how to work through it, I’ll get on the call and help them work through it until the deal is complete."

Afterward, Mike always makes sure to follow up with his advisors to use the situation as a teaching moment.

"I’m a firm believer that I would not ask anything of my team that I’m not willing to do myself. I do my best to keep all communication positive and lighthearted because employees who enjoy what they do will perform at their best.”

Mike’s Freedom journey began as a First Flyer back in 2015. When seeking out an opportunity in sales, Freedom stood out above the rest because they were willing to invest the time and resources to help him get licensed and trained for the mortgage industry.

“Freedom made a concerted effort to educate me on the mortgage industry as a whole, on top of fine-tuning the skills I needed to succeed in sales.”

Mike’s advice to new Freedom family members to is take advantage of every opportunity that appears – small or large.

“Freedom does an amazing job at providing opportunities to grow and develop, but it’s up to you to put yourself out there and go after it. You may have to leave your comfort zone to do so, but it’ll be worth it every time.”
