If you’re good at your job, the odds are you’ve set pretty high standards for yourself. But if you’re an expert, you’re going to insist on working with others who share those same standards. At least, professional Loan Officer Dianna Herra knows that to be true. That’s precisely why she made the decision to join Premier Mortgage Lending when she moved to Las Vegas in 2004, and that’s also why she’s never left.
Dianna began her career in banking right out of high school in her hometown of Chicago. “Since then, I’ve worked in virtually every department, and when I became a Vice President of Loans, I knew I had found my passion,” Herra explains. “So when I arrived in Las Vegas, I immediately started researching to find the top producing mortgage company that shared not only my ethics but my desire to always find better ways to serve my clients. I found that at Premier Mortgage, and frankly, now I wouldn’t want to work anywhere else. I love it here!”
By creating an intimate setting focused on teamwork, excellence, and premium service – Premier’s owner, Rick Piette, has hit on a winning formula that excels in serving the needs of his Loan Officers and clients, alike. The Premier staff enjoys working in a smaller, non-corporate environment – where common sense is valued and changes can be made quickly to react to the market without having to deal with a lot of bureaucratic red-tape. And customers benefit from the knowledge of an experienced team, a warm, friendly atmosphere, and more importantly – the reduced expenses of a small, local mortgage broker.
That last point is critical, because it helps Premier’s customers understand the seemingly inexplicable: That Premier offers a true “No Fee” mortgage loan.
Many of Premier’s customers are shocked to discover that “No Fee” means exactly that – there are no loan origination, underwriting, or document fees. And yet, the interest rate still matches what other lenders have quoted them.
“But it’s no trick,” explains Herra. “It’s because of two simple things: Premier has lower operating expenses than large banks and mortgage bankers, and we work on smaller margins. Because we pass those savings directly on to the borrower, we’re consistently going to be the best choice for a borrower. They’ll pay no fees and get a market rate interest rate.”
Another benefit for homebuyers by lowering the cost of obtaining a mortgage loan is that it gives them more buying power. This can be especially helpful for first-time buyers, or for FHA loans when the customer only has enough money for the down payment.
That’s why Herra believes it’s important for borrowers to know that getting a mortgage isn’t only about the loan itself – but also about the quality of their loan officer. “Choosing to work with an experienced loan officer – who is well-versed in current regulations and knows the local real estate market – is often what can make the difference between getting keys to their new home, or a loan denial letter.”
When borrowers “get” that they can save thousands of dollars with a loan from Premier Lending, Dianna explains that it’s rare they decide to go elsewhere. She receives many referrals from her clients and is proud of the fact that they return again and again for their subsequent loans. “That’s important to me because I’m here for the long run,” she states. “I love building relationships and helping people find financial solutions for their mortgage needs. The truth is, I don’t want to just do your loan today – I want to do your next home, and your kids’ homes, and your grandkids’ homes, too!”
