Our Loan Officer Testimonials

“Loan Officers ask me all the time to what I attribute my success to, and the only word that comes to mind is support. Our processes and underwriting platforms are the best in the industry. Kurt and our management team do not strive to be the biggest mortgage company, just the best. They have been crucial to my success in building and running my business, with everyone checking their ego at the door.”
– Graham Parham | Allen, TX
“I want to say thank you. It has certainly been a ride in our industry these past 2 months. Choosing Highlands Residential was the best choice ever.  Everyone has been great to work with, positive, helpful, and encouraging. Corporate and leadership has been amazing with their resolve and commitment to us and to our clients and I want to say thank you!  It takes my breath away.”
– Michèle Catoire | Fall City, WA
"The driving force that brought me to HRM was the reputation of our leadership to the commitment to excellence in all things, service, lo performance, professional development, etc. It's easy to talk culture, talk service, simply talk about how good you are but when others validate the reputation it makes the choice easy. Every department, every person is committed to ensuring that not only do we close on time but we do it in the most efficient manner allowing all parties to have an enjoyable experience in the loan process."
– Eric Heath, SVP/Area Manager | Nashville, TN
