Irene Amato’s A.S.A.P. Mortgage Delivers Boutique Personalized Approach to Clients across Northeast
A.S.A.P MOrtgage corp.
We don’t buy houses that often, but when we do it’s a big deal. We may operate within a realistic budget, but we often focus more on kitchen appliances and square footage than interest rates or our mortgage. And yet, securing the best mortgage rate and terms could save us much more money than we would spend on a kitchen remodel or home expansion.
Partnering with a mortgage broker we can trust while also focusing on the 2nd floor Jack and Jill bathroom represents the best of both worlds. Floridians are about to discover just how good this combination can be because A.S.A.P. Mortgage Corporation has arrived in the Sunshine State. The fast growing boutique mortgage firm is fully licensed and has seven offices in New York and their new office in Florida totaling to eight offices servicing the east coast.
In 2001 Irene Amato founded A.S.A.P. Mortgage to assist first-time home buyers and those looking to refinance their homes in New York. She built her first team to reflect her values of excellent customer service and equal treatment for every client. A.S.A.P. quickly expanded to provide licensed brokerage services for real estate professionals, builders, as well as individual homebuyers throughout New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Florida.
A.S.A.P. Mortgage is partnered with over 40 national lenders to offer a full spectrum of home loan products, including conventional, FHA, renovations, jumbo, non-QM, investment, and first time buyers. The loan specialists can also assist with refinancing, cashouts, and debt consolidation. A.S.A.P. is proud to be a certified Military Housing Specialist, offering specific veteran loans and receiving the full USA Cares accreditation in its support of veterans and military families.
Irene Amato opened A.S.A.P. Mortgage from her home office twenty years ago. She had three children under the age of 5 years old. Having lost both of her parents before she turned 18, the Bronx-born CEO always established the work-life balance in her fledgling business, a company that has grown beyond 30 employees and earned her multiple business and finance awards. A graduate of the Goldman Sachs 10K Small Business program, Amato finds time to instruct Real Estate, Pre-Licensing and Continuing Education courses throughout New York. She also mentors others as a business coach and motivational speaker. You can find her at IreneAmato.com, Home at Last, her new motivational real estate and mortgage guide, will publish this fall.

In addition to instructing and mentoring others, Amato has established A.S.A.P. Mortgage as a strong supporter of the community and charity events. The Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, Gullota House, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and Harry Chapin Run Against Hunger are just three of many charitable recipients. Organizations are invited to request contributions on the company website. Not surprisingly, the CEO asks that such requests be addressed directly to her. Amato’s charitable interests cover many organizations, but her support of children groups like NO KID HUNGRY is clear. Her company is named for her three children, Alexa, Stephanie And Peter.
In the competetive process of homeownership, who you select as your mortgage broker can be the difference between presenting a nightmare transaction versus a memorable experience. Far from being a commodity to be sold to the highest bidder, a mortgage represents personal decisions with significant responsibilities.
Irene Amato built A.S.A.P Mortgage into a company of peers who understand the importance of financing a home. This boutique approach has led to incredible growth as more and more clients realize how much they prefer this efficient and personal approach.

"Your Home, Our Heart"
Many important details can be lost in translation for non-native English speakers, an intimidating situation when one considers the financial decisions that must be made. A.S.A.P. Mortgage features multilingual loan originators and processors who speak Albanian, Farsi, Hebrew, and Spanish to provide total clarity for all of their clients. A.S.A.P. Mortgage also has processers who are multilingual so that they are able to serve non-native English speakers throughout the whole process.
Every client will benefit from the A.S.A.P. process, a relationship that begins with a dedicated mortgage expert assigned to each individual file, part of the personalized service that defines the boutique broker. Knowing how impatient a new homeowner can feel to finalize a dream home, these licensed loan originators work tirelessly to secure the industry’s most competitive rates and fees, and to expedite the mortgage process. The entire experience remains transparent from start to finish.
“I cannot say enough about the service we got with ASAP Mortgage,” says Stephanie. “We had a pretty rough start on a house this summer and needed to pull back from our contract due to an inspection issue. When we found our second house, Jennifer and her team picked right up where we left off and took so much stress out of the process. We closed quickly and got a great rate lock thanks to the diligence of the team.”
Amato has built a corporate culture that benefits greatly from the intimacy of a boutique mortgage office. A.S.A.P.’s 40 fully-licensed loan originators work one-to-one with each client to determine the perfect loan program to suit the client’s individual needs based on the best wholesale products in the industry. The company’s mission statement is to deliver a “transparent mortgage experience to the consumer. Our Unique Boutique Mortgage Experience combines elite licensed mortgage professionals, incomparable service, a full array of mortgage rates with the most competitive products in the industry.”
A.S.A.P Mortgage introduced creativity, inclusion, compassion, and ethics to the mortgage office. These four pillars have resulted in recruiting a talented team of colleagues who look to simplify, expedite, and negotiate mortgages for the ultimate satisfaction of their clients. The company is currently hiring new loan originators and other positions in the new Florida location. New employees are educated in the A.S.A.P. Mortgage company culture, a methodology that has allowed the boutique mortgage firm to grow throughout the northeast and Florida, part of the stated ambition to develop into a national brand.
As first-time home buyers my husband and I were new at the mortgage process, and Doug made the entire thing a breeze – from pre-qualification throughout closing. He not only helped us get our mortgage, but ensured that we understood the process, exactly what we were signing, and he was always available for questions and concerns.
