Manny Rodriguez started his mortgage career in 2021. Mortgage lending wasn’t something that Manny originally had in mind, but life had other plans. Manny met a successful mortgage professional at a local boxing gym that encouraged him to get into the mortgage business and that he did! He started working in the business development department for a local lender and quickly fell in love with the industry. He soon got his license and worked under a highly successful team learning the ropes on different aspects of the business. Manny’s family was affected by the housing crisis of 2008 and that is something that drives him everyday to make sure that every client is treated with fairness and respect. “To me, my clients are like my family. Everyone is taken care of every step of the way and every scenario is treated with honesty and earnestness”. Being a first generation Mexican American, Manny learned really young what it was to develop a strong work ethic helping his mom deliver newspapers throughout his youth starting when he was 6 years old. Manny knows that buying a home can be a very scary thing to do and he aims to create an experience where you’re not only buying a home but being educated on the entire process as well! An Avid boxing fan, you can find Manny in a boxing gym hitting the bags or in the amateur shows around Chicagoland where he coaches boxers out of Gregory Boxing Lombard. Manny is Tri Lingual completely fluent in English and Spanish and partially fluent in Italian.
