Doug Schinkel with Mortgages Unlimited has once again been recognized by Minneapolis-St. Paul magazine as a Super Mortgage Professional by his clients.   Doug has been a Mortgage Loan Officer with Mortgages Unlimited since 1997, and came with a background as a real estate broker. “It was a great advantage in having a background as a Real Estate broker coming into the mortgage industry. Having guided clients through the complexity of the total home buying process is very helpful in understanding all the anxiety that the client experiences when making such a big financial decision,” Doug says.

Doug goes on to say, “Being a multi-year recipient of this award is really a testament to the great clients I am fortunate to work with, and the highly trained staff at Mortgages Unlimited.”

“Doug’s drive to always provide his home buyers and Realtors with a high level of professional service, communication and respect is what pushes Doug to the top of his class,” said Steve Gatti, President of Mortgages Unlimited.  “His ability to keep his eyes on the primary objective of getting families into homes that they can both afford, and be proud of is what makes Doug a Super Mortgage Professional!” Great work Doug!

On Tuesday December 10th the Minnesota Mortgage Association held a luncheon honoring its next Loan Officer of the Year for 2014.  Steve Furlong of Mortgages Unlimited knows a thing or two about what that distinction means.  You see, last year at this very same time Steve was honored with receiving our industry’s highest distinction, and was chosen as the Loan Officer of the year for 2013.   It’s been a whirlwind of a year, and we asked Steve to reflect a bit on what receiving the Loan Officer of the Year meant to him:

I will never forget standing at the podium accepting the award for Loan Officer of the Year in front of my peers; it was a greater honor than I could have expected.”

“I referenced some advice my mother gave me as a youth; Start every day with the same question: ‘who’s life can I help make better today?’ And then get to work focusing on the positives, and making the best of the opportunities as they come your way.”

And making the best of opportunities is exactly what Steve did.

Steve Started with Mortgages Unlimited in 2009 while he was completing his MBA from the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota. During this time Steve built and trained a staff of new loan officers to the mortgage business, became heavily involved in both the Bloomington Business Chamber of Commerce and the Minnesota Mortgage Association, became a partner with Habitat for Humanity, and built his team to one of the pre-eminent mortgage consulting teams in the Midwest.

“Steve approaches his job like a corporate CEO.  He has built his business from the ground up and looks for every opportunity to serve his clients’ needs.” said Steve Gatti, President of Mortgages Unlimited.

Steve continues to serve his clients and look for ways to improve himself, and his business every day.  “I do my best to keep my nose to the grindstone and stay up on the changes.  I keep my clients informed and ensure that everything is done on time.”

“ Having spent the last 12 months as the MMA’s Loan Officer of the Year the greatest addition to my credentials has been that my clients recognize that our company and myself are highly competent professionals worthy of their trust as a partner to guide them home.”
