I just wanted to take a second to thank you for so much that you have given to me: first, the opportunity to work with a company that truly sees the customer as a family and more than just a loan or a profit; second, for taking the time to lead us in such a way with a servant leader approach; and third, (I could go on and on, but I know we are both busy) for this video and reminder!

I just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU for the privilege of working with you at Cornerstone. It occurs to me that Cornerstone is a big family. At the helm are the two partners that founded the company. Both of you have developed great families on a personal level. That is no easy accomplishment in today’s world. NOW you have built a great company using those same family values. You treat your employees “like family.” That attitude has permeated and influenced many of us over the years.

-Elena Canales, Loan Processing Assistant

We have dear friends Amy and Darren C whom we referred to Cornerstone for their mortgage last summer. They were thrilled with the service and loved the Dangora Team. Unfortunately, Darren Cdied of a heart attack recently, only 9 months after moving in, leaving his wife and twelve-year-old daughter here on Earth to do life without him. I sent out a Meal Train link to set up meals and donations for Amy and Kaitlyn. Ashley [our transaction coordinator] volunteered to take a meal. She did not know Amy well—just that she was a client.
Ashley is an example of the culture of Cornerstone and why we do business with like-minded, servant-oriented people that are truly an extension of our team. This really touched me that Ashley would take time to make a meal and minister in this way to Amy. Thank you for not only serving our clients we send you at the highest level, but truly doing all you can to make a difference and impact in others’ lives for life, not just during the 30-day transaction period. Ashley, you are APPRECIATED more than you know! Sometimes it's the little things we do that can make a BIG difference! Bless you!
-Troy and Denise Schroder, Keller Williams Realty Elite

I am glad I am part of the team.
-Becky Savois, Senior Loan Officer
