Mary Lee Gilchrist

Meet Mary Lee

I have worked in mortgage banking since I was 17 years old, when I was typing contracts and answering phones for a real estate office. As a loan officer for 3 decades (and loan closer for more than 10 years!), I am incredibly passionate about helping people find the best loan for their situation, and I will never give you a loan that isn’t a good financial decision for you.

My passion for guiding clients toward the right loan program and doing what’s in their best interests comes from watching my mother – a widowed mother of 8 – struggle in the 1970s to make her mortgage payment.

Mortgage lending is so much more to me than just a way to pay the bills – it’s my calling in life, what I was meant to do!
