Team Member Testimonials

April 2016

Never in my life have I experienced such an accident as we did a week ago Monday, never in my life did I think a car accident would put me in a hospital for five days, and never in my life did I think we would be exposed to the generosity that you have shown us.  Again, all I can offer at this point is a very sincere thank you and please express our gratitude to the Cornerstone Cares committee, who bestowed this blessing upon us.                                 GJ
I am soon very grateful to you ALL for:
  1 - Being AMAZING
  2 - Making this [transition to Cornerstone] happen
  3 - Helping us get off the ground so quickly
  4 - Making us feel welcome and 
  5 - Being our new FAMILY!  
You are all very special…and have built something REMARKABLE!  I hope you can go home feeling like the super stars you are tonight! 
Much love from your BIGGEST fans!
-Lori Richardson, Loan Officer

I wanted to take a moment to say “Thank you” for the opportunity to work with Cornerstone over the past three years. The culture that you created and nurtured has made Cornerstone by far the best company I have ever worked for. As you know, I left recently to accept a position as manager at another organization. It wasn’t that I was unhappy, only that I could not pass up this opportunity for growth. It was the confidence I gained being a part of Cornerstone that prepared me for moving into this leadership role. I will always think fondly of the family here at Cornerstone.
-Jessica Yarborough, former employee

It’s an honor to work here: I love this company and the people that run it . . . Awesome.
Thank you again for the opportunity to be an employee at such a wonderful place!
-Terry A. Avila, Loan Processor

I really love working for Cornerstone, and I love being a part of Region 12. We have really grown as a Region over these last 6 years!
-Veronica (Roni) White, Region 12 Closing Team Lead

I can honestly say that the people in this Company are the best group I have ever worked with.
-Chris Childers, Condo Intake Coordinator

I’m happy to be part of a company with such a strong, service-driven, value-based, and growth-minded vision: it is what attracted to me to Cornerstone. I’m thrilled to be part of the team!
-Christine Gippe, Closer

Thanks, Marc, for having such a great company to work for! You do a great job for all of us.
-Tom Beck, Senior Residential Mortgage Lender

I have to say, this has been a very short 5 years. Time flies when you’re having fun. The company has been very comforting to me after my husband had his stroke almost 4 years ago and all of the doctor visits since then. It really helps when you know you have a family like ours at Cornerstone. Being a full time employee and full time caregiver can get a little stressful at times but my families here have been very supportive.
-JW

Thankful to be here!
-Nancy Moreland, Branch Manager

I enjoy working for Cornerstone Home Lending. I have been out of the country for the past month visiting my daughter in Australia; consequently, I am late thanking you for your continual support of the Cornerstone family.
-Dave Mosnik, Loan Officer

It’s been an incredible two years. I look forward to many more!
-Scott Grau, Production Associate

I couldn’t help but share this with you this wonderful morning, after having the privilege of hearing Les Brown speak at our church yesterday. He is an amazing motivational speaker.
He shared with us this weekend that to reach our BEST, we need to let go and surround ourselves with OQP (Only Quality People). It takes 17 positives to drown out and replace one negative or limiting belief you have been fed. He challenged us to consider these questions: Are you that OQP for those in your sphere? Are you seeing and speaking the BEST in them? If you aren’t or can’t, then maybe you need to let go and let someone into their space that will. He encouraged us to go be amazing and let someone else know THEY are too.
We have amazing teams, here at Cornerstone, and together we are building greatness that nothing or no one can bring down or steal our joy. Keep up the great work and leadership.
