Selected Work Achievement Highlights

Transformed Portfolio of Distressed Loans Into Sustainable Asset As senior collections specialist at a multi-national bank, was given a portfolio of severely past due mobile home mortgages ($200 million portfolio) that was also being neglected by bank management. Following significant investigative work, contacted every client to re-establish a positive link with the bank and then prioritized delinquency status and loan recoverability in order to effectively rehabilitate these distressed loans. After establishing the cause of the borrower's inability or refusal to repay the loan, implemented a plan to get the client back into compliance with loan requirements via the creation of innovative payment plans that would work for the client and that I could sell to bank management. After two years of diligent work, was able to get the delinquency rate reduced significantly which resulted in a substantial reduction in foreclosure rates. This achievement was touted by the clients and bank management as exceptional customer service which enabled many of these clients to keep and stay in their homes. My efforts ultimately resulted in reducing the volume of delinquent loans from

$200 million to roughly $35 million by the end of the 27-month project.

Exceeded Sales/Funding Goals

Consistently met aggressive corporate residential mortgage origination and funding goals as a senior loan officer/originator. Through outstanding customer service was able to consistently meet mortgage sales and funding goals for the roughly six-year period during which I was a loan originator, typically averaging $55 to $65 million in funded loans annually.

Surpassed Corporate Customer Service Quality Assurance Objectives Consistently exceeded customer service quality assurance objectives as an underwriter and as a loan originator. Senior management evaluation of monitored phone lines revealed that my natural ability to make an authentic connection with the customer and the energy brought to these interactions resulted in a superior level of customer trust and a level of customer service quality which exceeded rigorous corporate standards.

Received Productivity Award

Identified as a leader in customer contact productivity as measured by the quantity of incoming communications effectively handled and the number of on-going communications productively handled on a monthly basis. In addition to contact volume, superior customer service was a requirement in the issuance of this award. References
