LeaderOne Financial Announces Hire of Patti Dieu, Sr. Mortgage Banker
Overland Park, KS, May 21, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- LeaderOne Financial, one of the nation’s fastest growing mortgage companies, is proud to announce the hiring of Patti Dieu, who will serve as a Senior Mortgage Executive within the organization. Ms. Dieu will be located in the organization’s O’Fallon, Illinois office.
“My mission is to provide comprehensive mortgage solutions to all of my customers, with the highest degree of trust, knowledge, respect and convenience,” says Ms. Dieu. The opportunity to work for a quickly growing national leader in the field, combined with the ability to continue serving the community she’s help build, has Ms. Dieu feeling optimistic. “I have been in the business for a long time. I have seen lots of changes, and I feel it’s only going to get better from here.”
Ms. Dieu’s long history in the mortgage banking and finance industry, along with her longstanding community ties, make her an ideal fit for LeaderOne, which originated nearly one billion dollars in loans throughout 2013. “I was born and raised in St. Louis,” says Ms. Dieu, “and attended Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, as well as Wichita State. After I married, I moved to the Illinois area and have been here ever since.”
And taking care of her community has been a priority for Ms. Dieu for nearly thirty years. “I started in the business in 1985 as a loan processor. Back then, you had to submit your loans to the agencies, VA/FHA, directly by mail. It could take months to get loans closed. In order to be successful you had to be top of the game. Rates are very important to our customers, but without knowledge and trust, you will not gain their confidence or respect. A good loan officer knows how to get the job done! There is nothing I hate more than hearing a loan officer say to a customer, ‘I am not sure why we need this, but my underwriter is asking for it.’ Yikes!”
With LeaderOne recently having been named one of the top one hundred mortgage companies in America by Mortgage Executive Magazine, Ms. Dieu is ready to “hit the ground running” with one of the fastest growing leaders in the industry. “The future for this industry is bright,” she states.
During her time off, Ms. Dieu and her husband have a small plane and are building another one. “We hang out with a group of pilots with their own planes, and we like to take mini getaway trips over the weekends. We fly around to hear musicians, attend concerts and hit up the wineries.”
About LeaderOne: LeaderOne is a full service mortgage banking operation with over twenty years of experience. Located in Overland Park, Kansas, LeaderOne has seen incredible growth during recent years due to its insistence on fair and honest business practices.
