Sr. Vice President / Mortgage Branch Manager
Gina carries the professional skill set and competence to achieve a reputation for excellence seldom equaled in her industry. With more than 25 years of experience, she is among the Top Producers in the metroplex, and has been consistently recognized as a Five Star Mortgage Professional in Texas Monthly and Best of D in D Magazine. She has also achieved excellence on a national scale, ranking in the top 150 mortgage originators in the country, and was chosen to speak at a national mortgage banking conference. Gina is among the top originators for Cornerstone Home Lending, as evidenced by her nearly $2 billion in career-total funding. But more important to Gina is the privilege of helping more than 5,000 families across the country achieve their home-buying dreams.
Reliability and integrity are trademarks of Gina's career. With her depth of experience, precise attention to detail, and commitment to always be there for her clients, she has built strong relationships within the Real Estate community and among her solid base of loyal customers. One client aptly described Gina when he said she was, "responsive, creative, empathetic and professional." Gina provides innovative technology, mobile and online accessibility, and enhanced customer services. In-house underwriting, convenient prequalification, and a wide array of loan products to choose from are all part of what Gina regards as the indispensable ingredient for the right mortgage transaction – personal attention.
To that end, Gina has established a personal team of assistants who share her passion for excellence. Together, they are dedicated to creating positive home financing experiences with simply remarkable service. The astounding record of accomplishments truly shows that the sky is the limit for this amazing team.
A native Texan, Gina graduated from The University of Texas with a dual degree in Marketing and Finance. In addition to her successful career, Gina makes time to give back to her community, participating in Young Men's Service League with two of her sons. She also serves on various committees at her neighborhood church and schools. Gina and her family reside in the Park Cities area.
Erica loves the fast pace of the mortgage industry. She has a keen eye for detail, an unwavering can-do attitude, and valuable insight gained from more than 10 years in the business. As loan processor, she is instrumental in helping clients move effortlessly to the underwriting stage. She can also identify and quickly resolve any issues that could affect the closing.
“Rather than bombarding our customers with requests, I take the time to research and find all the information we need,” she says. “Only if it’s absolutely necessary do I reach out to the client. I want them to sit back and enjoy their homeownership journey – and let us do the work!”
Outside of the office, Erica stays busy with arts and crafts, basketball, motorcycling, and “just about any outdoor activity.” She also loves catching up with friends and family.
As Transaction Coordinator, Gloria works diligently with her team to provide clients with a seamless and efficient loan experience. She has served in home lending for ten years and loves having the opportunity to help others reach the important milestone of homeownership.
Born and raised in Texas, Gloria grew up in Fort Worth and now calls Keller home. When she’s not working, she is usually spending time with her husband, Brian, and their large blended family. They enjoy traveling and watching their seven children compete in soccer, volleyball, gymnastics, and Brazilian jiu jitsu. In her free time, she enjoys running.
As Relationship Manager, Kim supports homebuyers as their loan moves through each step of the process. With an approachable and friendly spirit, she works to ensure clients have a positive experience and reach the closing table stress-free.
Kim got her start in the industry in 1990 and joined the Cornerstone team in 2002. Previously, she served as Loan Closer for the Jackson Team. Her many years of exceptional service are evidenced through vast industry knowledge and a finely tuned approach to customer care.
A lifelong Texan, Kim has called the Dallas Fort Worth area home since 1995. Outside of work, she enjoys being with her three nearly-grown children, working on her home, and spending time in nature.
