You stay abreast of loan products and trends as they relate to our market and customer base in order to maintain a sound loan portfolio. You eagerly attend appropriate local/regional educational seminars and work at outside events such as home shows, sales / trade shows, open houses, etc. to promote not only Kohler Credit Union, but to establish yourself as a dedicated and knowledgeable mortgage lending professional. Your sales ability assists in finding, securing and closing lending opportunities.
When handling loan request, you gather documents and review them to ensure that files are complete, accurate and in compliance. You also work with the processing and closing teams to resolve issues determined by the underwriting team. When each loan closes successfully, you have a wonderful feeling of accomplishment!
