During more than a decade in the financial industry, Chanel Shaba has become successful through hard work, passion, and perseverance. She has a unique ability to understand her clients’ goals, make a deal, salvage a deal, and close a deal regardless of the financial market.
“As a mortgage broker, my team and I focus on saving our clients time and money by tailoring loans to meet their specific needs,” she says.
With more than $800 million in closings, Shaba is a top-ranked originator nationwide. Recently recognized as a National Top Loan Originator for 2021 by Scotsman Guide, her tenacity and drive set her apart in her industry.
In 2021, Shaba co-founded Beyond Lending, servicing prospective and current homeowners in Michigan and across the country. “I realized that my goals mirrored my clients’ goals; it made sense to offer borrowers a variety of different options with different lenders,” she says. “We’ve made the home-buying process easy.”
It’s creating relationships with people that Shaba cherishes the most, and that’s one of the reasons she started Beyond Lending. “Aside from traditional lending, we’re the go-to brokerage for luxury real estate, construction deals, and investor options,” she says. “We focus on the relationship between the homeowner and the Realtor; you’re never a transaction; you become family.”
The goals at Beyond Lending are to be the nation’s most customer-centric brokerage, provide Realtors and homeowners with the utmost level of service, and deliver a seamless and streamlined home-buying and refinancing process.
