Jesus Neri is a sales manager at Alterra Home Loans, the country’s largest 100% Hispanic owned mortgage company. Alterra earned a spot on Mortgage Tech magazine’s list of Tech-Savvy Lenders and Servicers in 2012 and was designated as one of the fastest growing minority owned companies by Hispanic Business Magazine.
Jesus helped establish Alterra’s footprint in the Illinois market and was instrumental in creating a renovation program helping his branch become one of the most successful throughout the company. Jesus is a driven and tireless professional who leads a team of likeminded professionals to excel and produce extraordinary results each and every day. With his help, the Illinois branches created and implemented an operational system that drives service level agreements for clients and referral partners. This system tracks leads, monitors application progress and serves as a best in class customer service platform allowing him to close loans in as little as 20 days.
Prior to joining Alterra, Jesus was a mortgage loan officer at FirstMerit Bank where he helped build the local team, oversaw production of five branches and helped grow the renovation and CRA platforms for the bank’s Illinois footprint. He also volunteered his time with the underserved community as a board member of NHS, helping low to moderate income consumers.
Jesus is passionate about serving his community and helping them reach the dream of owning a home. He attended DuPage College where he pursued a degree in Business Marketing. Jesus is fluent in Spanish and resides in Chicago.
