While a student at Bentley University, Rick Harrington took a job in the file room with NE Moves Mortgage that set him on the path to a career in lending. Harrington, an originating manager at Guaranteed Rate Affinity, has since come a long way from the file room. Now he oversees 17 Coldwell Banker offices and heads the Guaranteed Rate corporate relocation program throughout New England, all while leading a team that helps him process loans, market his services and develop new business. “My team is very process-driven,” he says. “But overall, Harrington is known as a go-to in the real estate agent community for his ability to establish relationships that drive both success in navigating the loan and delivering the best finished product for the mutual client.”
The first vice president in the company’s Midwest/New England division to reach elite-level Chairman’s Circle status, Harrington has achieved President’s Club status for the past 10 years. He is consistently ranked among the company’s top 1% of mortgage originators in the United States. “Without my team, it would be impossible to close the volume we have in the past few years,” says Harrington. He concluded last year with over $157 million in closed loan volume, and with a robust pipeline to start 2021. What’s more, their closed number of units continues to increase year after year.
“Having over a decade in the mortgage industry, I’ve seen so many different types of loans and industry changes that I feel well-equipped to help almost any client in any situation,” Harrington says. Competitive on rates and always available to answer questions from agents and clients, he boasts a large referral base.
Active in the community, Harrington supports several charitable organizations, including Coldwell Banker Cares and the Inner-City Scholarship Fund.
