TN Lic #160616

I realize the secret to continued success is treating your customers with dignity and respect! I bought/sold 3 homes before becoming a loan originator, and looking back on my experiences, I vowed that I would do everything in my power to treat each borrower like it’s their first time buying a home and make sure to thoroughly explain every line of a Loan Estimate. My clients will always understand their different loan options as I help them evaluate what’s best for their situation and they will not sign a disclosure unless I’ve explained it in layman’s terms. My passion is helping people understand every part of the mortgage lending process, and I look forward to helping you with your next home purchase or refinance!

Casey Houston

Business Development Manager
NMLS# 1244961
TN Lic #122545
AL Lic #70257
MS Lic #1244961

Casey has had an extensive amount of exposure to the real estate market due to her father being a home builder for over 35 years and her mother being a real estate agent for 28 years.

Casey’s community involvement is as impressive as her career has been. She served on the board for the Memphis Area Association of Realtors Benevolent Committee and Member on the Board of Memphis Young Professional Network and received an award for being the Financial Advisor of the year in 2016.

She believes her most important role as a lending professional is to listen to the specific needs of her clients and find the best product for them. During the last 4 years, I have been honored to have guided hundreds of home buyers through the changing mortgage industry with one constant goal … to recommend a “financially sound” loan to meet my client’s needs.

I am committed to accuracy and attention to detail with my clients. I want to make sure every client understands their loan terms, since the mortgage industry is complex I am patient and welcome questions from my clients.

Susan Miller

Loan Officer
NMLS# 1204933
AL Lic #59981
FL Lic #LO28841

Susan is a Florida native from the panhandle area. Although she lived most of her life in the Dothan area with her son and four daughters, once they completed schooling, she relocated to the Panama City Beach area to enjoy the beautiful Emerald Coast and concentrate on learning the ins and outs of lending in the area, particularly condominiums. Susan has 15 years’ experience in the mortgage industry. Her motto is “never lose a deal” and is happy to have helped many families achieve home ownership through her ability to think outside the box when presented situations where other lenders have denied the transaction.
Susan has in-depth knowledge of USDA, FHA, Conventional and VA loans. She offers expanded loan products for the condominium market of the area as they can be tricky given the guidelines set out by traditional avenues. She communicates with her clients thoroughly from start to finish and enjoys the first time buyer experience the best as she feels it is an educational experience that will be carried forward to future home buying. Her favorite thing is to have these same buyers return to her for future real estate purchase as she believes this to be a compliment of trust. Realtors appreciate her diligence to their clients’ needs and her communication with them, as well, during the mortgage process.
