    Laura Morris gave props to Maria

    Maria just figured out how to save a file that was for a condo with a $45,000 loan amount, with a DPA. She switched it from a 5% down payment to a 10% down payment so the CLTV went from 110% to 105%, then BAM! everything worked out! This is another example of how diligent Maria is in going that extra mile to find a solution so we can bring another file successfully to closing! Thank you, Maria! I don’t know what I would do without your help and experience!

    Rick Rucker gave props to Jackelyn

    Jackie has spent many LONG days/nights problem solving files. She has a “common sense” approach when it comes to underwriting I think more should mimic. I’ve had a few files with over zealous underwriters. Jackie and I were able to both trouble shoot with her extensive experience and fix loans. She is a terrific asset to this company as well as the branch managers.

    Patty Castro gave props to Terry

    Terry Rodriguez is a true team player but above all a true team leader (without the title). She is a hard working & dedication co-worker who always has time to take care of any issues when called on. Even after hours she is available to respond to processors as well as loan officers on scenarios or underwriting questions. She also has a big heart, in this business “HEART is KEY to BEING SUCCESSFUL”. I hope she is recognized by AFN as being a great asset to this company.

    Aimee originally started at a Junior processor and I believe is now a senior. She has learned exceptionally well on the fly and took over some troubled files of ours.

She will eventually be one of the best and I genuinely appreciate her efforts as well as my branch.

    Diana Mendenhall gave props to AJ

    AJ is truly an asset to AFN. In all of my years in the mortgage business, I have never worked with a management team that is always there to support their team. Not only, does AJ support his underwriting team but he also supports sales team in the same fashion. Does not matter what I need as an underwriter, AJ is always there for me. No matter the time of day and we live on opposite coasts. He is a true example of team spirit and an outstanding leader!!
