Marcie Hines will proudly divulge the secret to her successful career as a residential lending professional: Service, service and service. Her customer-focused dedication, open and honest flow of communication and unwavering positivity are trademarks of Marcie's distinct way of doing business.
After high school, Marcie spent several years in the retail banking industry before transitioning to originating home loans in 2001. Throughout the years, she has found true joy and purpose in helping people on their journey to homeownership. This inner purpose led Marcie to join Cornerstone Home Lending, Inc., a company whose mission of helping make a positive contribution in the lives of others aligned with hers.
Backed by Cornerstone, Marcie provides clients with unparalleled resources and services to ensure streamlined mortgage transactions:
- Convenient and secure online prequalification
- Real-time access to competitive loan pricing options

- Frequent loan status updates to clients and agents, with client permission
Marcie's clients can also rely on her long after their loan closes for trusted mortgage guidance. Simply put, Marcie wants to be her customers' Lender for Life!
Born in Yuma, Arizona, Marcie has lived in Oklahoma City for most of her life. She stays active in her spare time - literally - and runs in three to five races each year with her sister ranging from 5Ks to half marathons. Marcie also enjoys spending time with her son, family and friends.

For Loan Officer Chris Hines, residential lending literally runs in the family. He was introduced to the business by his wife and fellow Hines Team member, Marcie, helping her out before joining the mortgage industry full-time in 2007.
