    Barbara is a TRUE “Team AFN” exemplifier. When another processor is on vacation and something “urgently” needs to be done on the 11th hour, Barbara is there to assist and get it done. She deserves the recognition and appreciation that is never actually given to team-players… like herself, in order to continue being an all-star. THANK YOU BARB! You are appreciated by the rest of the processing team!

    Anita truly goes above and beyond to help loans close on time. She has a genuine, caring spirit for her clients and it is showcased through her appreciation, patience and understanding throughout the loan process. I can’t say that I’ve worked with another loan officer who has the same level of “zen” when things are getting down to the final hour. Great job, Anita! Thank you for being awesome! Stay golden and hope to see more files from you soon!

    – June 07, 2018

    Jon Nichols gave props to Erik Godoy [217]

    We had a rush closing for a realtors personal loan, our closing department could not accommodate the closing so Matthew Schultz reached out to Stephanie Esparza. She quickly assigned Erik. Erik was prompt and accurate with title. We went from not be able to get docs out to having a balanced CD and Docs to title in a few short hours. Erik should be the standard for all Closers at AFN. Thanks for a Superior Job. If he does not get enough props, I will personally provide the award.

    – June 04, 2018


    Erin Marshall gave props to Karen Gonzalez [217]

    Karen Gonzalez, Barb McGee, and Madison Bryant always give 110%. They would give more, but they need to sleep sometimes too. I can’t count how many times they have stayed late, worked through lunch and worked from home after hours to get loans closed. Since the Raleigh Branch processes for a number of Branches, States and loan officers, dealing with all the different personalities and state regs etc. can be challenging. The processing team in Raleigh exemplifies what “Team AFN” is all about

    Barb McGee gave props to Karen Kristoff [217]

    Karen brings it loan after loan. We have had some crazy closings, Karen makes it happen every time. No matter what gets thrown at her she is always ready with a “Yes, I can do that”. Borrowers are totally unaware of the massive amount of work she does on their behalf, but I am. Karen goes above and beyond what anybody would expect. Every time.

    Cynthia is ALWAYS ALWAYS willing to help and has a contagious personality. Specifically speaking I had to leave the office early one day but there were disclosures that still needed to be sent, she helped out tremendously by reviewing the file and getting them out all without hesitation. A great example of what it means to be a team player!!! #AFNPROPS

    Eli has an amazing sense of urgency and a great work ethic. Very rarely do I have to remind him I’m waiting on something from him, which is more appreciated than I think he knows. Thanks for all the hard work bro!
