Mortgage Associates Corpus Christi opened our doors July 1, 1992 as an independent mortgage broker. In 2010, we began our operation as part of Willow Bend Mortgage. Our office is anchored by industry veteran and branch manager Jo-Anne Lamorey and her team of loan officers made up by Aide Saenz, Sharee Weaver, John Vaughn , John Stamos , Lawanda Skrobarczyk, Angela Villarreal, DC Ratcliff and Abby Crawford. Our great support team lead by Courtney Dowley, and Christopher Garza round out our branch. With well over 150 years of combined experience in mortgage banking in Corpus Christi, South Texas and the Coastal Bend Area we have had the honor and privilege of helping over 7,000 families and counting get to enjoy the wonderful experience of home-ownership.
Willow Bend Mortgage was founded in North Dallas by Bill Shaddock in December 1993. It was formed as a small brokerage shop built on servant leadership principles. Over the next 20 years, the leadership, which is still in place today, has organically grown Willow Bend Mortgage into a full scale mortgage banking operation with offices now across Texas in the Dallas/Ft. Worth, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, McAllen, and Corpus Christi metroplexes as well as across the state of Alabama. The company is headquartered in Plano, Texas and annually generates $500+ million of single family and reverse mortgages.
Willow Bend Mortgage loan officers pride themselves on building relationships with their clients by putting their clients’ interests first and navigating them through today’s over-regulated mortgage environment with a product mix, expertise, and operations staff that is second to none.
We believe strongly in the following principles: hard work, integrity, compassion, understanding and patience. We wholeheartedly acknowledge that every single customer is truly invaluable and deserves not only our utmost respect but also exceptional customer service and attention.
Our goal is not just to earn your business, but more importantly to earn your trust. Our mission is to treat every customer like they are family and above all else build long lasting relationships.
Helping families -- that's what I do! With over 2 decades of lending experience in Corpus Christi and the Coastal Bend as an expert in VA, FHA and Conventional financing including new construction and existing home, I have had the joy and privilege of helping over 2,000 families enjoy the experience of home ownership, and I can tell you wholeheartedly that there is nothing more satisfying than helping a family put down roots, and get to see their dreams of becoming homeowner's come to fruition.
I love what I do, plain and simple. I take great joy in helping families realize their dreams of home ownership. This isn't just a career for me, it is my passion, and I have had the honor and privilege of doing what I love for 17 years and counting. From helping first-time home buyers as well as seasoned home owners with conventional financing, FHA and VA, to refinancing, home improvement and beyond, I have you covered.
I am a senior loan officer with 16 years of experience in the business. I have extensive experience working with first-time homebuyers, jumbo financing, FHA, VA, USDA & Conventional loans. Whether you’re a first-time home buyer, looking to trade up, deciding to downsize, or simply wishing for a change, I can help you before you ever make an offer on a property. The financial aspects of home buying can be stressful and overwhelming – but they don’t have to be, not with a trained and caring professional like me in your corner.
