Senior Mortgage Sales Recruiter
Stearns Lending was founded in 1989 daring to create an environment where employees, partners & clients would have the opportunity to achieve great things. Stearns Lending (Stearns Lending, LLC NMLSR# 1854), headquartered in Lewisville, Texas, is an equal housing lender licensed to conduct business in 49 states and the District of Columbia.
In an industry where companies look the same and sound the same, we're not afraid to be different. For decades, mortgage lenders have done things the same way, from processing loans, to marketing their services, to interacting with customers. Just because things have always been done the same way, doesn't mean it's the best way
Stearns Lending is an approved HUD (United States Department of Housing and Urban Development) lender; a Single Family Issuer for Ginnie Mae (Government National Mortgage Association); an approved Seller/Servicer for Fannie Mae (Federal National Mortgage Association); and an approved Seller/Servicer for Freddie Mac (Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation). Stearns Lending is also approved as a VA (United States Department of Veterans Affairs) lender, a USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) lender, and is an approved lending institution with FHA (Federal Housing Administration).
Our Mission Statement:
When we say, "I Can Help You!" we are making a commitment to helping people reach their goals and achieve their dreams. That's true in every interaction we have with customers and with each other.
"I Can Help You!" means we view colleagues, employees, customers and clients as individuals not as transactions. It places the focus on them, emphasizing a willingness to give as much as receive.
We make a commitment to get the job done correctly and on time with integrity, responsibility and accountability. We will do what we said we will do, and deliver on promises made.
