Wallick & Volk Mortgage announced today that long-time mortgage professional Cory Kasten NMLS 262697 | WY MLO #218, has been recognized by the WCDA as their “Wyoming Lender of the Year.” This prestigious award was presented last week at the Wyoming Mortgage Lenders Association conference in Sheridan, Wyoming.
The Wyoming Community Development Authority (“WCDA”) is the state’s leading resource for housing finance, education and special programs to aid in obtaining and sustaining home ownership. The WCDA works with hundreds of loan officers across the state and selected Cory Kasten for this esteemed recognition based on the quality and volume of the loans he originated in 2014.
Kasten has been with Wallick & Volk since August 2006 and has remained a top-producing loan originator year after year. Kasten’s production for 2014 exceeded 125 loans for over $26 million in volume. Cory Kasten is also the Branch Manager of the Wallick & Volk Cheyenne branch and was ranked #1 for loan origination in 2014.
Cory’s team of April Matthie, Mortgage Coordinator, and Katie VanHatten, Senior Processor, has been together for 7 ½ years. Kasten attributes the team’s success to, “The consistency and dedication to our clients, referral partners, and family is foremost. We carry a huge responsibility in making sure that our job is done with the utmost professionalism. We truly care and are the custodians of the transaction. If we mess up, close ugly, fail in our communication, or forget a minor detail, then the transaction could fall apart. We pride ourselves on making sure none of that happens. Longevity in this business comes from having built relationships that last and are trustworthy. You can’t sustain your business or attempt to grow your business without trust, reliability, and strong relationships. Having our team together for as long as we have is the backbone of our success. It is reassuring to our past clients, referral partners and future clients that they know they will be able to see familiar faces year after year.”
Dave Heuermann, Chief Production Officer, stated, “We congratulate Cory on this award and are very proud of the work Cory does and the service that he provides to our WCDA borrowers. His commitment to the community and all homebuyers throughout the state of Wyoming is foremost in his everyday work and results in awards like this one.”
