7/29 Spotlight Feature: Irene Amato

Fabulous Working Females

Weekly Spotlight Feature

Introducing, Irene Amato!



Founder of both A.S.A.P Mortgage and Irene Amato Motivation Coaching, Irene Amato is an award-winning mortgage industry professional for more than three decades. Irene not only has built her own empire, she is a loving mother of three children-having started her company in her basement with all three children under five.

Irene is the epitome of a Fabulous Working Female, as she has dominated in a world of “big-box banks” and male entrepreneurs. As if that weren’t impressive enough; Irene is also dedicated to following her passions, and most importantly puts her love and support of her family above all.

Tell us about yourself!

I was born and raised in the Bronx, a proud New Yorker at heart, and have been heavily involved in regionally based mortgage industry organizations throughout my career. I have served on the New York Association of Mortgage Brokers (NYAMB) Board of Directors for six years as President of the Lower Hudson Valley Region. I have also worked closely with their legislative committee and traveled to Washington, D.C. for Lobby Day on behalf of the mortgage industry.

With being a strong advocate for continuing education, I have taught continuing ed courses for fellow mortgage professionals. I am so passionate about it, I became a New York State approved Real Estate instructor for both continuing education and pre-licensing courses at several different schools. I truly love sharing and empowering others with all the knowledge I have gained over the years.

What are your Aspirations?

I have two businesses one ASAP Mortgage and the other Irene Amato motivational coaching.

I’m revamping the Irene Amato website to not be so professional, to be a better reflection of my personal side, more approachable, and deliver the message of what I have to offer to this world. When we designed my name for that business will be simply - Renee.

Can you describe what makes you feel FABULOUS while working?

One thing that makes me feel fabulous when working is the ability to change the path and direction of people’s lives leading them to a better more peaceful life. I’m blessed to be able to empower others in both careers I have chosen in my life. There is nothing more rewarding than making a difference in a person’s life, it’s actually the greatest gift of life. This applies to both my motivational coaching business and the mortgage business.

Thank you, Irene, for being a force and role model to so many women. With your passion, intelligence, and kind heart-you have proven that you can do anything you put your mind to. We know the future will be nothing but continuously bright and fabulous for you, and we look forward to following along!
