Sue Hight from Embrace Home Loans is our Affiliate of the Month! We asked Sue to share some things about herself, and this is what she had to say:
I grew up in the North Deering area in Portland and I never left. I have been married to my husband, Jeff, for 36 years, and we have three sons. My oldest is married, and I now have a wonderful daughter-in-law and two beautiful granddaughters, which of course is just the BEST. They reside in Falmouth, so “Grammy” and “Papa” visits are often. My other two sons reside in Boston. We are truly blessed.
Family is first to my husband and I. We are slowing down now (ha-ha), but we do golf, walk the Boulevard, etc. I also like to cook — and balance is key for me.
I have been a Senior Mortgage Officer for 13 years now. Simply put, I LOVE what I do. It allows me to help my clients to make sure they are in the best program to reach their goals. The key to my success is my customer service — communication, being upfront, returning calls quickly (weekends too), and being trusted. When clients say to me, “I TRUST YOU,” that is the biggest compliment one can receive. It is important to me to work as a team with the client, real estate agent, and the title company to ensure a smooth process.
While being a member of The Greater Portland Board of REALTORS®, I have been involved on the committee for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Portland for 12 years. Raising money and participating at the job sites building houses — it has certainly been a pleasure working with such a dynamic group of people!
The key factor for Affiliate members is to be involved, either by donating your time, being a sponsor, etc. — everyone has something to contribute. The knowledge and experiences of each and every one of us can certainly help many.
