About Evelyn Perez
Born and raised New York City, Senior Mortgage Advisor Evelyn Perez and her family made their move to Providence, RI in search of a “small city” lifestyle. The 2nd oldest of four children, she enjoyed doing many of the things a young woman might do: piano, cheering, dance, etc. However, even at a very young age, Evelyn always had a passion for working! In fact, when her parents purchased their first home in 1987, Evelyn assisted as the translator for the Realtor and ultimately became her assistant. She recalls the mentor’s advice, “no matter what career path you take, remember that mortgage financing and the housing market will always drive our economy!”
Her first after-school job was as an Administrative Assistant for a daycare center where she learned the value of community, people, and trust. Evelyn moved on, keeping the books for Management Realty which managed 25 properties. “I love numbers! They don’t lie and they always have to work.” The sister company of Management Realty, Sterling Health Care, saw the opportunity to promote Evelyn to Assistant Controller where she ran a very tight ship. When Sterling closed she stayed on as the Business Office Manager at a Long Term Care Facility until her friends at First Home Mortgage started heavily recruiting her. Evelyn was finally convinced to enter the straight commission, referral based income world of loan origination, and it became one of the best career decisions she would ever make.
In 2017 Evelyn Perez originated close to $50 million in mortgage loan volume earning her the reputation as one of the top Rhode Island based mortgage originators. When asked about her great success she sites her ability to pay attention, listen, and how she truly cares about what people want. “I love working, and I love making a difference, especially in the Spanish speaking market. I will meet with any client who takes the time to gather their paperwork for me because that shows me they want to own a home. If someone doesn’t qualify, it is never a waste of my time because I can guide them how to get there!” Now with Province Mortgage Associates in 2018, Evelyn looks to take her already successful mortgage career to even greater heights. When Evelyn and her dedicated Sales Assistant, Shanice Quezada are not working, she enjoys spending time with her husband and four children Clarissa, Armani, Jovanni, and Alexis.
