Against the backdrop of a global pandemic, Nathan Hartseil built out and managed a new office while closing nearly $100 million in loans. Hartseil, a senior loan officer and branch manager with Main Street Home Loans, felt incredibly humbled by the process. He handled everything from scouting space, assembling desks, and patching walls to mentoring and training employees new to the industry. “I get to balance wearing many hats,” he says of leading a team. “It has made me reflect deeply on the roles we play and how we can work together to be more than the sum of our individual talents.”
Hartseil assists first-time to luxury buyers and sellers, veterans and investors with USDA, FHA, conventional and non-conforming loans in the Greater Boston area, as well as Florida, Maine, Rhode Island and New Hampshire. “My clients see I have their best interests at heart,” he says. “They are largely content to let me guide them in the right direction.” Always available, he has a reasonable solution to any obstacle based on his 15 years of experience in the industry.
Long before the formal application process begins, Hartseil connects with clients over their goals, needs and prerequisites for success. By the time the loan comes together, 90% of the work has already been done. Unconcerned about his ability to compete, he knows that there is no substitute for hard work, continuing education, conscientious management and support of mentees.
Named a top 1% originator in America for two years running by Scotsman Guide and Mortgage Executive Magazine, he also maintains roles in the leadership team and/or Presidents Club status at his company.
A trained pipefitter and operating engineer, Hartseil served in the Marines and is a member of both the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Mass Mortgage Bankers Association.
