Upon moving up from intern to associate at one of the top teams at Oppenheimer & Co., Yale Wolf began to reflect on his future and what drove him. “I wanted to help people accomplish financial freedom,” recalls Wolf, originating manager with Guaranteed Rate Affinity. “That is what brought me into real estate. I saw a lot of opportunity to build wealth for my clients.” He also enjoyed creating scenarios within guidelines that work for each client and showing the client that they can own a home within their budget.
Wolf assists homebuyers with FHA, VA, conventional and jumbo loans in the Boston and MetroWest areas. He has held every position in banking and financial services, from assisting in asset management to working as chief financial officer of a loan-servicing company to running the back office of the lending department at a small, local bank. Those experiences prepared him to be more effective in his everyday lending activities and understanding the process.
Among the top originators at Guaranteed Rate Affinity, Wolf has achieved President’s Club status. He credits his success to his team, as well as time management and his ability to delegate. “With the volume that is coming in, you’ve got to be able to delegate certain functions to your team to make sure you meet timelines,” he says. “Also, with time management, you need to make sure you are able to complete everything that day and nothing is missed.”
Recently, Wolf increased his business by 85% year over year. A majority of his business is referral-based, coming from real estate agents and past clients. Clients really like that his team is knowledgeable, makes the process easy and is always available to answer their questions.
