Derek Conley - Sr. Loan Officer
I have worked in the Mortgage Industry for over 12 years as a Broker and a Banker. I have seen every possible mortgage scenario, and feel I am in the perfect place to ensure the best loan experience for every one of our customers. I take pride in delivering the best customer service with a consultative and proactive approach to the loan process.
My customers and real estate agents will be well informed of our status throughout each transaction. I have a team of two other members that include my loan officer assistant Kristin Boggs and loan processor Dana Duncan. All three of us are involved in every transaction, which allows for a quick response to all questions or concerns.
Cheryl Amari and Derek Conley worked together as a team and provided the best possible service with our recent home purchase. They both were always available 7 days a week to answer any question I had which was important since I travel a lot for business and many times I needed to catch up at odd hours and weekends. I have purchased 5 homes over the past 10 years and this experience by far was the best hands down. Our recent home purchase necessitated a quick close and from contract to closing table we closed in 30 days. I would highly recommend Cheryl and Derek. We have found our dream home near the beach! Thank you! - ★★★★★ Debbie Topping
