Altitude Home Loans president and CEO Faisal Adil cares not only about the mortgage business but, more importantly, about all the people who are part of it. Whether working with a client, an employee or an escrow officer, Adil ensures that they are treated equally with appreciation, encouragement and empathy.
Adil started Altitude Home Loans in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Recognizing an opportunity when other lenders panicked, Adil launched a company geared for remote work, staffed with people he trusted to do their jobs and do them well. Adil’s ability to inspire commitment, loyalty, success and belief in oneself was instrumental in driving the company’s growth from five to 130 employees in six months. Adil’s comittment to the company’s core culture of empathy, excellence and doing the right thing filtered through to every employee.
Even as the COVID-19 pandemic waned, Adil continued to empower his employees to always be the best they could be and never fear innovating.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
You cannot control everything, so do the best with what you can control. I received that from my grandmother, mom and dad.
