Amy Tierce and Amyrates moves to Wintrust Mortgage!

Welcome back to the Amyrates Blog!

We have been busy re-building, re-branding and re-structuring our platform.  In case you haven’t heard, after 10 years of building and running the top branch at Fairway Independent Mortgage, I decided to move to Wintrust Mortgage!  I was hired to build a new region for the company and I am very excited for this opportunity. Wintrust Mortgage is part of Wintrust Financial Corporation, a nearly $20 billion asset financial services company based out of Chicago. Since we are a nationally chartered lender, I can lend in all 50 states from our Needham location. Through Wintrust Mortgage, we offer more products and programs than I have ever had access to; as well as a top flight condo department. Wintrust processes loans in a manner that is highly efficient and consumer friendly.

Please enjoy the Amyrates blog site! We will be creating new content weekly as the Wintrust Advisor which is targeted to the real estate community. In addition we will be adding posts on motivation, home buying, leadership, business development and women in business!

Stay tuned and thanks for paying attention.


With the opening of its new location in Needham, Mass, Midwest based Wintrust Mortgage has expanded into the New England region under the guidance of Regional Vice President Amy Tierce. Wintrust has the systems, compliance and security of a nationally chartered entity along with the flexibility of a correspondent lending platform and offers their clients the stability and clout of a $20 billion dollar bank. The service-focused mortgage lender has great expertise in all facets of mortgage lending, and their portfolio, condominium and jumbo offerings make them an especially good fit for the Metro-Boston market and all of New England.

Veteran lender Amy Tierce is at the forefront of the expansion and is using her vast industry knowledge to grow the New England region for Wintrust. “I am incredibly excited to introduce a new lending brand to New England. There is no one mortgage company, bank or lender who can execute every single deal that comes across their desk, but at Wintrust we can do more than most, and combined with our delivery systems we are the winning team,” says Tierce. She says New England is the perfect fit for Wintrust. Tierce adds, “This is a very challenging environment and I believe that the best originators and realtors need to be served by the strongest lending platform. How could I resist this opportunity?”

Amy isn’t just a top lender at Wintrust, she knows New England. Her knowledge comes from her experience as Regional VP for Fairway Independent Mortgage and manager of their number one Newton MA branch and region. Tierce isn’t the only New England addition to Wintrust’s new location. A strong team was crafted from Fairway, Deana Auman-Kirbach, Regional Operations Manager, Linda Erwin, Sr. Underwriter and Michele Auman, Sr. Processor. On the origination side, Brian Denton, an industry veteran and top originator formerly with Fairway and Drew Grandi former Business Development Director from Poli Mortgage are also on the team. Wintrust’s Executive Vice President of Sales Bob Shield raved, “When we met Amy, and later her team, we knew that this was a group we could build a region around. They have high standards and strong value systems around quality compliant origination, high-trust customer service, education, community engagement and charitable involvement, all hallmarks of Wintrust.”
