Wilkin + Sage_edited.jpg

Wilkin Lai is the Managing Broker at RIC3 LLC.  From 2011 to early 2019, he was a community development loan officer at First Independence Bank, where he leveraged the resources of a local community bank to fill in the Detroit housing gap and provide the mortgage needs of the city of Detroit (read how in this article).  He has experience with all phases of a real estate transaction, from building houses as a framer to overseeing a condo conversion project, and the past 12 years as a mortgage loan originator.  He has worked with hundreds of clients from first time homebuyers to property investors.  In the midst of a real estate transaction, Wilkin works to maintain both a personal and efficient process.  He walks with clients through all stages of the loan process, and communication is a priority to help facilitate closings in a timely manner.

Wilkin is married to Heather and together they have 3 boys: Matthias, Caleb and Andrew. The most popular family member is their husky Sage.  Wilkin carries a frisbee most everywhere he goes and he serves as lead Project Framer with the non-profit Creative Community Service Network (CCSN).  He grew up in Pittsburgh, earned a degree in finance at the University of Illinois and lives with his family in New Paltz, NY.
