Team Member Testimonials

March 2010

Thank you for taking the leap 22 years ago and starting Cornerstone!  What a tremendous company you have built – you should be so proud!! I appreciate both you and Judy and the opportunity to work with you at Cornerstone.  

Hello Marc,
Thank you very much for the welcome message.
I can already tell that the word Family is not just being thrown around here. In my first few days, I have been in contact with representatives from Secondary, PR, UW support, and IT. Each person took the time needed to address my initial question and extended his/her assistance with any related issues going forward. Great first impressions!
I look forward to expanding Cornerstone’s presence in the Pacific NW.
-D Walsh

Marc, always know that you have my utmost respect and thankfulness.  I continue to pray for the Lord’s powerful inspiration and wise direction through you for the plans that He has for Cornerstone.  He goes before us and behind us, and hems us in.  He alone is our standard, and never changes.  He is our Rock, our proverbial “cornerstone”!

Thanks so very much for all your support! This year I have grown so much as a professional, and it feels so great to be a part of such an amazing organization. Thanks again. I look forward to many years to come.
-K Tautenhahn, Sr. Loan Officer

Realizing I’m a couple days late, I still wanted to tell you three how grateful I am to be a part of the continued Cornerstone Story.  I’m glad you all had the courage to do what you did 22 years ago. Thank you for your honor and your commitments!  
Happy (belated) Anniversary to you!  

Thank you. I have felt very welcome since my return last week. Everyone in Houston has been tremendously helpful and responsive. It’s great to see the same names and hear the same voices I knew so well from the last time around. Makes me feel welcome and confirms that this was no doubt the right choice.
To our success!

Thank you for your support.
Thank you for allowing us to play a role on your team.
Thank you for believing in us.
Thank you for giving us an opportunity to use our gifts.
I am grateful for our partnership and our friendship Marc.
Just wanted to make sure you knew.

Thank you so much for the warm welcome.  We already feel that we are part of the family and are so excited by this new beginning. I loved your [Cornerstone] story, and, as you already know, am a firm believer in God's hand in our lives.  I have received many "signs" that we are in the right place, and want you to know how blessed I feel.

Hi Marc,
I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am to be back at Cornerstone. I know that the Beliefs & Values that you helped create for Cornerstone are the difference between living a life of going through the motions versus a life lived with purpose. I know I will help bring value to Cornerstone, but I just wanted to say thank you for creating a place for people like me that are looking for a place to “improve upon our God-given talents and make a positive contribution” to those with whom we come into contact. Thank you
-K Francis

Hi Marc,
I just want to say thank you for the gift card.  What a great surprise! I can't believe it has been ten years—it certainly has gone by quickly.  I love working for you and Cornerstone: you have an awesome company that doesn't compare to others. I feel fortunate to be a part of this organization.
Thank you again.
-S Noebel

I can’t begin to thank all of you enough for the job that you did in introducing (or reintroducing) Cornerstone to our group in Colorado.  I’m so proud to be associated with such a special group of people!!!
-G Humphries

Thanks for the nice email. I truly feel blessed to work with everyone at Cornerstone.
Thank you and Judy for building such a unique and special company. With our platform, support system and family atmosphere, I am excited about helping Cornerstone grow with the right people.
Thank you,

Thank you so much ! I really enjoy working here it is a wonderful company to be a part of. Thanks once again.

Thank you for making this such an awesome company to work for.
-J Vinson

Thank you Marc. I appreciate the information, and I’m excited to learn more about Cornerstone. I have to say that so far the Cornerstone employees that I have worked with have been fantastic.  I’m excited to come to Houston to meet more of the employees. Thank you,
-S Young

I can’t tell you how excited I am about this move.  At every step so far, we have been met with open arms from your gang.  On-boarding new people, in my opinion, is a critical component to creating the atmosphere that projects a “family” work environment.  Thus far, with only small hiccups, our transition has happened seamlessly.  This speaks volumes of you and your management team.
-Don Ziegler

I am very proud to be a part of this organization. Cornerstone makes me feel like family, and I can say I am truly excited about coming to work every day!

I really feel privileged to be a part of Cornerstone Mortgage, and I wish for many more years!

I want to thank you so much for the fabulous time at Lake Tahoe for the Top Producers Trip! We were spoiled, pampered, and enjoyed the amazing accommodations, food and attention to every detail. The Cornerstone “family” is composed of such wonderful individuals! I enjoyed getting to know more of them and spending time with those who have already become friends.
Thank you for your leadership, your vision, your encouragement and support. You mean so much to both Dean and me, and we are blessed to be a part of Cornerstone.
-Sue Johnson

I am so excited to be a part of this company and wonder, “Why did I not come sooner?”  God’s timing is always right on time, however. 
Thank you for making our company such a wonderful work place.
I love Cornerstone.

I feel Blessed & Honored & Very Privileged to work for Cornerstone!
Thank You for your excellent Leadership of this Company.
-Robin Boyd

I just finished viewing the videos that Jay sent me this afternoon. My wife and her parents sat down and watched them, and, needless to say, we were all very impressed. My mother-in-law, who has been involved in wealth management for the past 35 years, told me she had tingles while watching the videos and felt as though I may have found my home. I, too, was extremely attracted to what I saw, and what truly amazes me is that the values I have built MY business upon are so perfectly in sync with those of Cornerstone’s! For the past 8 years I have attempted to make customer satisfaction; consistent contact for life through valuable lines of communication with clients; honesty; integrity; and being a man of my word my top priorities for producing success in the mortgage industry. I have desired to make those my cornerstones, all while working in an environment that stifles them on a daily basis and with no support system to speak of. It seems as though the Lord has been preparing me every step of the way for this opportunity. If I ultimately decide to make the switch, and if you decide I would be a good fit, I see limitless levels to which I will be able to take my career. 
I feel extremely positive about this opportunity thus far but will continue to do my research and look forward to a follow up meeting next week. After realizing what Cornerstone is truly all about, I am completely honored that I am even being considered for a position in your company.
Thank you for the time you have spent with me and thank you for the opportunity to learn more about Cornerstone.
-Loan Officer Candidate

Working at Cornerstone is almost as much a calling as it is an opportunity.

I wanted to thank you for the birthday card and blanket. I had a great impression of Cornerstone before I started with the company, but now as an employee, it’s even better. All of the people are great and so helpful and warm. I’ve very much enjoyed my first couple of months.
