Claudia Reyes opened her branch (Home Source Mortgage) in Corpus Christi in April of 2015 & has quickly become known as “The Source for ALL Your Mortgage Needs!” Claudia, originally from Monterrey, Mexico, was already a well-established mortgage leader in the Corpus area with 15 years of banking experience – eight of those strictly in mortgage lending. Claudia has strong ties in the community which helped her close 104 loans in 2014 & will be a big factor in hitting her goal of 140 closed loans in 2015. She is also the premier lender for several builders in the Corpus area as well.
Realizing that it takes a TEAM to meet her clients’ needs, Claudia hand-picked her team very carefully. This team includes right-hand assistant, Katherine Flores, who has worked with her for the past 2 years after leaving the medical field. When not working, Katherine enjoys traveling with her husband, Martin. Loan Assistant, Leanne Luis, was born & raised in Corpus & was in the insurance business for seven years prior to joining the real estate/mortgage profession. Douglas Debenham is her in-house processor & has been in the mortgage industry for 10 years, having been a closing specialist, Jr. Processor and a Branch Manager Assistant. Becky Lopez, Conditions Processor, has 22 years of banking industry experience & is heavy involved with the local Builders Association & Chamber of Commerce. John Stamos, long-time Georgetown RMLO since 2010, joined her team & also boasts 22 years’ experience in mortgage lending. Together, this team is achieving great success & has made the Corpus Christi branch a force to be reckoned with! Their team works & plays together & has monthly outings to break the office routine & participates in LOTS of community events. They each recognize the importance of staying connected with realtors & other vital referral sources so they are extremely active in the Corpus community.
Some of the events they participate in include Lunch & Learns they present on the 2nd Tuesday of each month as well as their Business Networking Mixers they host on the last Thursday of the month. They recently co-hosted a mixer at the Corpus Christi Ice Rays hockey game – it was not only a fun networking experience but by inviting customers, it also conveyed their customer appreciation as well. This past September, they sponsored a booth in the “Best of the Best” event which garnered thousands of people from Corpus & the surrounding coastal area – all voting on different Corpus Christi businesses in different categories. This gave them great exposure!
As you can see, this branch has a great philosophy which fits so well into our Georgetown Mortgage culture – they believe that being successful comes with a great responsibility to provide for others & give back to our respective communities. The month of September was Hunger Action Month & to raise awareness, they hosted a week-long food drive & all donations were presented to the Food Bank of Corpus Christi. The month of October was the Purple Purse Challenge in which they raised awareness for domestic violence. By hosting a painting party fundraiser, they were able to benefit the local Women’s Shelter. They are already busy working on their next project for Toys for Tots Foundation where they plan to provide donations of toys, books & gifts to less fortunate children.
This branch is to be commended for exemplifying the core values of GTM – they are setting a great example for their peers, their community & their families. Claudia is also setting a great example for the #1 priority in her life – her two beautiful daughters who are 9 & 12
