Mount Adams Branch Receives Top Workplace Award by Cincinnati Enquirer for 2nd Year

NRL Mortgage’s Midwest Region, one of the company’s largest regions, was recently awarded the Top Workplace award by the Cincinnati Enquirer for their 2nd year in a row. Comprised of five branches, the Midwest Region is led by Area Branch Manager, Caveh Azadeh, a Mount Adams native. In the local area are the Cincinnati and Mt. Adams branches, with the remaining branches located in Lawrenceburg, IN, Chicago, IL and Detroit, MI.

Based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey, NRL employees were asked to rank their workplace based on various criteria, such as alignment, leadership, engagement and their manager. With hundreds of company submissions and over 37,000 overall survey responses, NRL Mortgage Midwest Region was proud to be awarded 6th within the mid-size companies group.

Experiencing significant growth over the past year, the Midwest Region has expanded their staff by over 30% with their most notable acquisition of their Detroit, Michigan branch. Last year, the Mt. Adams branch alone expanded their staff by 20%. In a shrinking market within a volatile industry, NRL Mortgage and specifically the Midwest Region continue to defy industry standards and break barriers with their commitment to growth and quality of life in the workplace.

Azadeh’s secret to growth, retention and happy employees can be explained in one phrase “Actions speak louder than words, so always deliver.” With over 65 employees, Azadeh has worked with most of his staff for over 10 years. Associates have followed Azadeh from his previous company to NRL Mortgage because of his strong commitment to long-term growth, career pathing and guidance. Even with a large staff, Azadeh makes time to get coffee with each associate on a monthly basis to provide coaching, get updates or just catch up. His commitment to fostering relationships with each associate is at the core of who he is.

Known for his Realtor appreciation events, Azadeh is a big believer in providing resources and motivational events for not only his business partners but also his associates to attend. The Mt. Adams branch recently hosted an intimate meet & greet event for a small group of top Cincinnati Realtors with Josh Altman, star of Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles for a Q&A and book signing. “Even though the event was targeted to our business partners, I learned so much and took away a lot of key strategies.” said Taylor Price, Area Marketing Support.

Along with hosting Josh Altman and earlier this year, Coach John Calipari, NRL Midwest coordinates several internal events for their team. “It’s not just the events that define our culture – It truly is the people.” exclaimed Jennifer Sears, Area Executive Assistant. “We recently had a ladies night where we all went to The Candle Lab in OTR and then out for some drinks. It was so much fun to bond with the girls in the office. I haven’t ever worked in an environment where my coworkers were my extended family!”

“We are in the people business.” Azadeh replies when asked of his commitment to his staff. “We do not sell a product but rather a service. We want happy clients but first we must have happy employees. Appreciate your team as much as your clients and business”
