Alex Varela

Working his way up to the #1 Latino Lender in the United States, Alex Varela attributes this accomplishment to training and helping others. Working through other people is the secret to his success.

He has a passion for working with newer realtors and helping educate them about the loan process and the ins and outs of a real estate transaction. Alex has been recognized as one of the top 200 lenders in the United States by Mortgage Executive Magazine and the #4 loan officer nationally at PrimeLending.

Coming from the inner city of Chicago, Illinois from an impoverished neighborhood, Alex has always valued hard work and picking yourself up and dusting yourself off. While putting himself through college at the University of North Texas and graduating with a degree in Entrepreneurship, he took to sales in the mortgage industry relatively quickly. It was a natural fit as it was an opportunity to build his own business.

He is a participant in the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals, an active member at, and a supporter of (an organization that prevents and frees youths from sex trafficking).

Most people over estimate what they can do in one year, and underestimate what they can do in ten years. In addition, Alex has experience developing land, building homes, investing in real estate, investing in other businesses including a microbrewery and a marketing company that manufactures portable billboards.

Alex plans to spend the next 30 years of his life perfecting the mortgage process, creating the best sales staff in the mortgage industry, and paying forward the opportunity he received when he was 20 years old to enter the mortgage industry.
