The trials and tribulations of 2020 have been no match for Boston-area mortgage pro and multitasker extraordinaire Allyson Kreycik, senior vice president for mortgage lending at Guaranteed Rate, Inc.
With a proven 18-year track record in her industry, a reputation for personal service and a notably fast response to clients’ needs, Kreycik is devoted to her work. In 2020, she grew her team and juggled the highest volume she’s ever seen in her career, for both purchase and refinance business. She also simultaneously educated her three small children during the COVID-19 closures that began earlier this year.
“To be able to not only survive the year but to thrive in it has been my biggest accomplishment,” says Kreycik. “I think that I have a very strong work ethic and that has helped my career from when I started in 2002.” Having weathered the 2008 market crash, Kreycik says clients find comfort in working with someone who has experienced challenging business conditions.
Another asset clients find in Kreycik? “I don’t sugarcoat answers. I’m very transparent and honest, and feel that has helped clients and referral partners trust me with their business,” she says of her 100% referral-based clientele.
While this no-nonsense leader and her team have cruised to the Guaranteed Rate Chairman’s Circle for funding over $300 million in volume this year, Kreycik feels strongly that giving back is paramount. “I believe that to whom much have been given, much is expected,” she says. To that end, she serves her community and others as an executive member of the Guaranteed Rate Foundation — providing financial assistance to those in need — as well as a board member of the Child Advocacy Center of Rockingham County.
