An Interview with President Brad Ratliff
Since the onset of the pandemic in early March, Brad Ratliff, President of Priority Mortgage, has been pleasantly impressed and amazed by the company’s mortgage loan originators, underwriters and support staff. As with many, the leadership team was concerned about productivity, communications and team chemistry as a result of everyone working in remote locations. And, the team rose to the occasion – with flying colors!
The Ohio and Florida real estate markets have kept the Priority Mortgage team busy with purchases and the historic interest rate market has fueled an extraordinarily busy refinance market. With each mortgage loan application, the team stays focused and efficient. Some mortgage teams have even enjoyed record closing volumes in 2020.
For this display of dedication, tenacity and teamwork, Brad is “proud and thankful for the people of Priority.”
As for recruiting new team members?
“We are always looking for people with a desire to do hard work, learn from others and create their future. We are always recruiting.” Brad adds that they have developed many internal candidates from diverse career and education backgrounds, noting the recent promotion of Samantha Armbruster from Assistant Loan Originator to Mortgage Loan Originator and Monica Miller who recently returned to Priority Mortgage as a Loan Processor. Monica will be transitioning to Mortgage Loan Originator in September.
