What compelled you to join Priority Mortgage and Sarah Engstrom’s team?

I was looking for a new challenge in my career. I mentioned this plan to my step sister who works for Radian and she referred me to Priority. They placed me within Sarah’s group and it could not have been a more perfect fit. This team is absolutely incredible and works so hard to surpass their goals month after month.

What was your background that prepared you for this path?

I had no real background in the mortgage industry. I have never bought a house, but I came from a Nissan car dealership where I worked for six years and learned everything I possibly could within that company. I have eight years of experience with customer service which definitely helps me in my position at Priority. It’s all about taking care of the customer!

Share what you’re most enjoying about being a part of the Priority Mortgage family.

Priority immediately welcomed me with open arms, everyone here is one big family. They help each other no matter what and they truly care about taking care of their employees. When you take care of your employees, they take care of your customers. I can’t wait to see what my future holds at Priority and I am so thankful to be a part of such a friendly, fun, hardworking team!

Why should others consider a move to the mortgage industry?

The mortgage industry is constantly changing and you have to keep up with it. It makes your job challenging, in a good way. It keeps your mind constantly active and you’re never doing the same thing every day.
