Nick DeVito - Team Leader (Underwriting)
“The comradery here is unlike anywhere else. You really feel like part of a family.”
Nick achieved a career milestone recently when he became an Underwriting Team Leader. His leadership duties now include overseeing a team of underwriters, including two groups located offshore, all to whom he serves as a mentor and coach. By guiding them through strengthening their underwriting skills, Nick works to set his team members up for both personal growth as well as career success at Freedom.
He also rolls up his sleeves and continues to help underwrite accounts, reviewing loan requests and credit documents to assess Freedom Mortgage customer applications. Together, Nick and his team work tirelessly to help our customers achieve a better financial situation, all while providing best-in-class service to uphold Freedom’s “customer for life” mission.
Nick is a proud alumnus of the First Flyer Program – our career development program that provides recent college graduates with specialized training in order to grow professionally in the mortgage industry and launch into a successful career at Freedom. He’s now been part of our family for more than four years!
“The First Flyer program was an unbelievable experience and I wouldn’t be where I am today without it.”
Nick has one important piece of advice to offer someone looking to follow in his steps at Freedom.
“In this industry things change rapidly, and you must agile enough to adapt. If you can keep up, you’ll do great things here.”
When he’s not in work mode, Nick enjoys spending time with his family, his dog, and getting in a round of golf whenever he can.
