Getting to Know Mary

What do you like most about your job? 
I love working with the various types of individuals. From our fabulous employees to our borrowers.  Each person I meet has different experiences and different backgrounds.  It is very rewarding to put their entire financial picture together so they can refinance or purchase a home.

What do you believe is your best quality?
I believe I create an atmosphere of trust when I meet people. I am friendly and outgoing and make borrowers feel comfortable and educated about the home buying or refinance process.

What is your most treasured possession? 
Not a possession – but most treasured - would be my two intelligent, beautiful daughters.
