LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / January 23, 2021 / For most Americans, one of the biggest investments they will ever make will be purchasing or refinancing a home, and it should be treated as such. This is why, when choosing a mortgage broker it is important to build a relationship with your advisor, feel comfortable, and have a plan that not only suits you now but will still make sense 10 years down the road.
At Wilkes Mortgage Group, clients are more than just a number. Henry Wilkes, owner, realtor, and mortgage broker, has closed thousands of loans in his twenty-year career. “We strive to open up the doors to have a lifelong relationship with you and your family. We want to put families in homes,” says Henry.
Born and raised in California, Henry’s upbringing has greatly inspired the family-owned and operated business that is Wilkes Mortgage Group. At the age of fourteen, Henry’s life completely turned upside down with the passing of his father which was followed by his family losing their home. As a young boy, he never understood why this happened to his family. Growing up he was determined to find out and wanted to make sure that never happened to anyone else. When Henry was twenty-one years old, he got his real estate license and decided he wanted to help people have their dream homes and give back. He says, “Providing what was taken from me has always been my why.” This same passion and motivation still drives him everyday twenty years later. Henry and his wife Daniela have been together for 6 years and have been blessed with their two kids Olivia and Henry IV. A huge family man, Henry is so grateful for the impact they have had on his life and business.
So how does Wilkes Mortgage Group stand out in the industry? The minority-owned business, with offices in New York and Los Angeles, emphasizes family, trust, and treats each client as an individual. “All of our employees come from different backgrounds and experiences, everyone brings something to the table. It creates a great work environment with a lot of trust, compassion, and teamwork,” says Henry. He has fond memories of his coworkers, who he considers family, working late nights at his kitchen table. “There is no competition, just the goal of doing the best we can for our clients as a group.”
Clients can choose from two main services at WMG. For clients that need financing options on a home or any other real estate, WMG can help make the home purchase loan process easier and help choose the offer that best fits the client’s needs. For clients that need help with refinancing, the process of paying off your existing mortgage with a new mortgage, WMG can help them reduce the interest rate and monthly payment or change the length (or term) of the mortgage. “We’ll help you clearly see differences between loan programs, allowing you to choose the right one for you whether this is your first refinance or 7th.”
Henry shares two more ways that Wilkes Mortgage Group is making a difference not just for their clients, but for their community:
- Staying in touch with clients for life. Whether you need to refinance again or are looking for a contractor to redo your kitchen, they’ve got you covered. With unlimited connections and relationships in the industry, they can connect you with insurance agents, a trust attorney, contractors, flooring, electricians, the list goes on! “We don’t do everything personally, but we know the right people to do it.”
- Homes for Heroes. One of Henry’s proudest accomplishments is being part of the Homes for Heroes nonprofit that focuses on providing easy ways for the heroes of our nation to save on a home and on every day home-related purchases. Over the past seven years, Wilkes Mortgage Group has helped give back to firefighters, law enforcement, military (active, reserves & veterans), healthcare workers, EMS, and teachers. Homes for Heroes, Inc. is the largest nationwide network of affiliate real estate specialists and local business affiliates. This community-driven project helps front liners by paying for their appraisal and inspection, giving them concise financial advice, and a stream-lined interest rate. “We’ve always wanted to make sure the front line workers are appreciated and rewarded for all they do.”
At Wilkes Mortgage Group, clients don’t just find a great mortgage advisor, they find a family. “We care, we never forget where we can from. Our vulnerabilities and struggles in the past have helped us help people now.” With more and more Americans looking to move out of apartments in search of backyards and more space, WMG is more prepared than ever to help clients find and afford their dream homes.
