I began this exciting road to real estate and finance in 1998 when walking into a Century 21 and asking for a job. I was hired on the spot! I started out as a receptionist, then quickly moved up to an office manager and then a licensed Real Estate Assistant. Being a Realtor was fun, but short lived, as my passion was behind the scenes, or should I say computer! Did I mention how much I love math and puzzles?
I started working for a mortgage broker in 2000 where I did it all, from processing, underwriting and originating. In 2002, I decided to take the leap and only originate and I am so grateful I did!! I absolutely LOVE my job!! I feel blessed to be a part of such a huge investment and exciting journey in a person/family’s life. It is so much fun hearing the joy and happiness in my client’s voices when they find the perfect home and when we find the perfect loan for them to feel confident with the decision to purchase and comfortable with the next 30 years of payments J The process of purchasing a home gives me the opportunity to build a lifelong relationship with every client, which has been instrumental with my chosen business model and guide to a prosperous career. Working with excited “future” or “repeat” homebuyers is awesome in itself, but having the referral makes it so much better. So it is very important to me that I impress everyone involved in the transaction and treat everyone with utmost respect, professionalism and compassion. My mission is to guide, educate and support my clients, while also maintaining constant communication with everyone involved.
I have extensive experience with all loan products, ranging from First-Time Homebuyers, down payment assistant programs, VA financing, JUMBO programs, investors, no fico loans, bad or limited credit, and those who just need a “New Start” after a recent foreclosure, short-sale or bankruptcy. At Peoples Mortgage, I have 100% support around the clock, competitive products and rates, in-house underwriting, quick turn times and a proven track record to offer the best for every client I work with.
My passion for this wild and constant changing field has pushed me to grow, so my team can help as many people looking to purchase or refinance with the best products and the expertise we provide offers hope to those who didn’t think they could. I have made a commitment to myself, my team and my clients, to give everyone the opportunity to achieve the American Dream of Home Ownership or at least offer guidance to get there! My father always said to me, “Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left behind by those who work hard”. This quote I still love to this day, which inspires my work relationships and business. My love for this field and ambition has helped me become a repeated Top Producing originator allowing me the opportunity to expand and open up more possibilities for our clients, realtors and business relationships.
As a wife & mother my family is very important to me. I have a loving husband, Corey and two handsome young boys, Conor & Carter. We all even share the same initials “CAH”. My boys love baseball and they sure keep us busy. Our family loves boating, razor rides, the beach, camping, swimming and just spending quality time together. My family gives me a solid foundation, while providing me support throughout my career.
I end with one of my favorite quotes that aligns with my services, “Words are words, promises are promises, explanations are explanations BUT only performance is reality”
Thank You & Best Wishes – Carrie Hughes
