Michael I. Sema is a mortgage lending visionary and trailblazer. He started his career in 2004 like most loan originators at your typical NJ Mortgage Company to learn about home financing fundamentals and process. His tenure there was stellar starting as an account executive to a top producing branch manager in the nation for the entire company in a matter of two years.
After gaining invaluable knowledge and experience, in 2012 he decided to build a business with the client experience in mind. Michael believed in offering legendary customer service and guidance all the while always actively seeking low rates and fees for clients. Plain and simple, he wanted to create a preferred customer experience that was effortless and fulfilling at the same time.
His vision as the President of Get a Rate has adapted over the years yielding to consumer behavior where the customer can “get a rate” at their convenience any time, anywhere. Not only can they secure competitive rates, they can also gather all the information needed to choose the right home loan option for their specific situation and goal in mind.
