Tom Mills has been a seasoned mortgage professional since 2005. His rise to leadership began when he established his first sales team at a mere 26 years old, swiftly gathering over 30 loan officers by his side before turning 27. In May of 2012, he joined a prominent mortgage company as a Branch Manager and was later promoted to Regional Vice President in 2014. Tom’s role was to foster growth within the company both organically with his salesforce and by recruiting new talent. He was successfully able to grow a region that consistently produced over $1 Billion a year of mortgage fundings with 250+ direct reports spanning across 13 states.
During his nearly 12 years in that role he was able to establish strong relationships with both sales and operations. This allowed him to unite a culture and help Loan Officers and Branches expand production while providing superior service to customers and referral partners.
One of Tom’s many passions falls under the category of leadership development. Over the course of the last 10 years, he has personally invested over $400,000 in leadership, personal development, and sales coaching so that he can practice what he preaches – self accountability and investing in yourself! Through his coaching he has been able to “Pay it forward” and help so many others further develop throughout their careers.
His skill set comprises expertly guiding a sales force through an everchanging industry. This includes building and scaling sales teams, developing tailored systems and processes that optimize the inherent abilities and skill sets of individuals, and assuming the role of a trusted coach and mentor to top-tier producers and managers. Tom’s unwavering commitment to conducting himself with utmost integrity and a direct, honest approach has garnered the trust of his employees, fostering robust retention and deep rooted professional connections.
Beyond his professional endeavors, Tom actively engages in community involvement and cherishes his role as a nurturing father to Kylie, Carter, and Austin. Embracing a healthy and active lifestyle, he enjoys boating, beach trips, travel, is an avid sports enthusiast, and a Passionate Eagles and 76ers fan.
