Team Member Testimonials

July 2016

I have been in the real estate or mortgage industry for over 30 years, and this is my all-time favorite place to work. I intend to be here for many more years.
-Vicki Clark, Senior Loan Processor

I have had smiling faces at every closing this week. Wanted to share those smiles to some very deserving people (Besides I work for this guy that believes that you make the people you work with smile). Great role model. Cindy and Tammy, thank you for bailing me out when I didn’t realize underwriting one of these took longer. And then there’s Juan—hero close—and Jenny, who is always a hero. Two Realtor agents in a room talking about what a great program this is and how well Cornerstone handled it is always a welcome event. I told Marc not long ago I feel like this place is amazing. Amazing, wonderful teamwork.
-Pam Eastwold, Vice President l Production Manager

My time here at Cornerstone has been a dream come true!
-Kayla Duffle, Transaction Coordinator

Excellent vision. I absolutely share your values. By the way, I couldn’t sleep the other night . . . thinking about your reply to my email to you about enjoying working “for” Cornerstone, when you said that “we work ‘with’ each other.” I am so excited and want to create value for the company; it really feels like home here. I am indeed quite impressed with the team and our dedication to a quality product with emphasis on relationship building. It is a pleasure to work with Cornerstone. Have a blessed day!

You have built something very special: I can tell from your story of how the company started that you put God first and follow what He would have you do. What a refreshing experience! I cannot wait to grow with Cornerstone and feel very blessed to be a part of this family.

The Cornerstone story gave me goose bumps. I wasn’t looking for a job when this opportunity presented itself, so I too prayed for God to guide me. The fact that it was named Cornerstone was a huge impact. I know I made the right decision and look forward to the journey.
-Rafael Gabeiras, Transaction Coordinator

I want to thank you for the kind and gracious welcome! It is not quite often when a company’s CEO personally welcomes you to a company.

Thanks again – I really do appreciate this.
