Broker Associate Cal BRE #01913443 & Mortgage Loan Originator NMLS #955569, Creative Realty Marketing & Mortgage
Tell us a little about Creative Realty Marketing & Mortgage: We are a small locally owned business, founded in 1978 as a real estate exchange marketing firm. In 1981, it expanded into a full service mortgage origination and loan servicing firm specializing in private money, residential, commercial and construction loans, as well as traditional loans, including FHA and VA options. Over the past 37 years we have not only provided vital real estate loan services but have devoted countless hours of pro bono work combating mortgage origination and servicing fraud to help protect homeowners, borrowers, and investors.
What are some of your biggest accomplishments? Passing my Broker test on the first try when I was told to expect it to take a few times, no pressure. In the past four years I obtained my Real Estate License, Mortgage Loan Originator License Endorsement, and my Broker License. I took classes at Bakersfield College and choose not to do a vocational school so that BC credits can go towards a degree maybe one day. With three kids I will find time eventually.
How has the industry changed over time? When I first started as a processor in 2002, the mortgage industry was insane. Loans were given to just about everyone, which led us into the Great Recession, and major changes took place; I believe for the better. Personally, I’m grateful that I choose to stay in the industry during that time and turn the chaos into something positive.
What do you love about your job? I love that my job doesn’t feel like work at all. Each day is different; and nothing is routine. We have a great boss; owner Kenneth Beavers and his wife Kelly are great motivators and positive influences, which in turn helps us grow. Most importantly, I love our clients. Helping them achieve their dreams of owning a home, whether it be a first time home buyer, investors growing their portfolio, or helping a small builder, I’m helping them accomplish that and it feels good.
How are you involved in the community? I am member of the Bakersfield Association of Realtors, I am the treasurer for the NAPMW (National Association of Professional Mortgage Women), and a member of WCR (Women’s Council of Realtors).
