Area Sales Manager
Catherine has been in the mortgage business for the past ten years and for the past four years she has been a manager. Prior to her mortgage career she was an area sales manager for Staffing Company for six years.
On What She Finds Most Rewarding
“I love to think outside the box and strategize for the best options. Since there are so many programs available for the First Time Home buyer and the move up buyer, I love to weigh them all out until the best deal presents itself. I also love working with people and typically try to keep the process fun. I feel we have a unique team.”
On What Impressed Her About First Cal
“I am impressed with the operations. I love how everything is local and how the staff truly cares about my clients. They take the extra effort to make sure that the whole process is smooth from the start of the file to closing. ”
What Capabilities Do Your First Cal Resources Allow You?
“First Cal’s resources allow me to sell with confidence! We have Fannie Mae direct underwriting, which allows for flexibility and leniency with loans. Sometimes we don't need an appraisal and we are able to do things other lenders would not allow. In addition, I'm still able to offer the tax credit here which is very important to me.”
On Helping Customers Be Successful
“Knowledge is power. The Eusea Team’s first priority to helping customers be successful is to make sure that our buyers understand the options available from start to finish and the process to closing. Taking the time up front prepares the buyers to focus on the end goal.”
On Who Has Inspired Her
“My mentor who inspired me is Todd Duncan. He is a game changer in my career. Reading his first book six years ago and living by his principles day by day has influenced my life and career. With that said, my family always comes first and they are my “WHY” in my life. Life is too short to have that any other way.”
What Would You Say is Your Highest Priority?
“I believe that service is our highest priority. We are not perfect but we take every opportunity with mistakes and challenges as a way to improve our team. Our motto is "We are not number #1...YOU ARE!”
“I love to travel with my family. Both of my boys are teenagers and my focus is to experience all the time I can with them. I love scrapbooking, running and yoga on my personal time.”
