    As loan officers we all too often receive our final approval and forget about just how much work goes into the closing process to follow. My funder Cindy is quite simply the best I’ve ever worked with in 14 years. The sign of a real champion, regardless of the pressure (she sits outside my door so I see the never ending stack of incoming loans to be reviewed!), Cindy just powers through everyday and always gets it done–and usually with a big smile on her face–regardless of the pressure. Thank you Cindy for all that you do for myself, my clients and for AFN!
