In his first year as a mortgage broker, Inam Qureshi funded $25 million in mortgages, and over the past decade, he has amassed a funded volume in excess of $1 billion. After a successful career in banking, Qureshi ventured out to set up his own brokerage, allowing him to assist his clients with all their financing needs.
He believes that young professionals today are more educated and have a wide range of career options, and he understands the hesitation newcomers feel when entering this industry. Believing in the power of “the three Ps: patience, persistence and perseverance,” Qureshi says the industry can offer great returns to those who put in the effort. “I compare this business to a retail boutique that can generate enormous returns as long as you are willing to work for it,” he says. “After all, it’s a business that requires some tender loving care that is bound to yield manifold returns.”
Outside of the mortgage industry, Qureshi is involved with several organizations, but the one that is most dear to him is the family trust founded in memory of his grandmother, Mariam Abdul Razak Moloo, which undertakes various charitable initiatives, including the promotion of scholarships and educational awareness programs in developing nations.
