Lane Sears
VP of Mortgage Lending

I have always been motivated to get the job done right and I am focused on the small details that matter tremendously in the long run. These traits have helped provide my clients with the best possible service & mortgage experience and ensure that when the going gets tough I deliver results.

I grew up in Pasadena Texas and moved to the Midwest for university where I played football on a scholarship. After graduation I moved to St. Louis for a few years, then moved to Chicago where I lived for 25 years and honed my skills for excellent service while managing a joint venture between a big 3 bank and a boutique, upscale real estate firm. Working side-by-side in an office with Real Estate Agents developed my communication skills for keeping all parties updated while maintaining my client's privacy with the utmost discretion. I eventually moved back "home" to Texas in December 2018, again with a big 3 bank, but felt the entrepreneurial calling to a more progressive company that compliments my strong desire for excellent service & customer experience.

In my career I've strived to service every segment of the market possible, from ultra-luxury to move-up buyers, first-time buyers, government loans and down payment assistance programs and I am proud of my track record in each category. I'm available 7 days a week (real estate deals are often made on weekends and evenings) and am extremely diligent about solving the issues that arise over the course of a transaction. With my industry experience I provide clients with a rare level of insight into negotiations and complex problem resolution/mitigation strategies and ensure that their interests are always at the forefront of my team's efforts.
