2022 Rising Star: Nate Clear


As national sales manager at FirstFunding, Nate Clear works well outside the confines of his role. Clear is a unique combination of student, mentor, technician, executive manager and sales professional, who is aware of his ability to attract, guide and inspire new talent in the industry. With every initiative Clear leads, his goal is twofold: improve the customer experience and empower employees with the time and resources they need to excel.

Now in his tenth year with FirstFunding, Clear is a student of his industry, learning all aspects of the warehouse lending space. Clear has positioned himself to attract, guide and inspire new talent entering the industry. Even as a young professional himself, Clear is committed to addressing the growing need for younger generations to explore a career within the mortgage industry. Within FirstFunding, Clear personally designed the curriculum for a sales and account management internship program. He mirrored the curriculum after his own career approach, focusing not only on sales but all facets of the business. Clear believes a sales professional with a deep understanding of operations can better contribute to a culture of building efficiency through teamwork.

Goal setting and re-setting have been one of, if not the best habit that has aided me in my success both professionally and personally.
