HW 2019 Insider: Josh Grupe

Loan Originator, Envoy Mortgage

Josh Grupe has devoted his life to the mortgage industry and has spent the last 16 years establishing himself as a respected leader among his peers.

F2When Grupe joined Envoy in 2017, it was immediately apparent he was a determined and resourceful loan originator. In fact, during that year, Grupe was named the Division 1 Rookie of the Year and qualified for the Envoy Circle of Excellence awards trip, a feat that is often unattainable by many first-year originators. In 2018, Grupe’s leadership yielded several new hires, referral sources and reaffirmed Envoy’s presence in the Eastern and North Eastern Wisconsin market. This year, Grupe received the 5 Star Mortgage Professional Award from Milwaukee Magazine, and is once again positioned to obtain qualification for Circle of Excellence. Each of Josh’s supervisors, coworkers and referral partners can’t help but feel that Grupe not only takes on any challenge that he is presented with but surpasses them with flying colors.

“When I meet with customers I always try to take the approach to go above and beyond to help educate them on all parts of the process, like credit, programs, monthly payments and closing cost options. By spending the extra time on the educational side, it’s one small thing we can do to give a good experience. I always want customers to feel like they are being helped as if they were family.”
