I started teaching right out of college and quickly learned that wasn’t the career path for me. I started as a loan officer in 2003 during the height of the refinance boom. I realized that I could actually “teach” clients about how to save money which sparked my passion for this career. I am blessed to say that I can use my teaching degree in a different manner than anticipated. I absolutely love my job and being able to experience the thrill of closing day with amazing clients."

When she walked in, she was mad. I asked her why she was mad, and she said the night before the closing, she calculated how much she had paid in rent over the last 30 years and figured she could have paid for this house by now. That is why she insisted that her children and grandchildren come, to show that they could do it also.”

Kyle has worked with KHC for all three of his years in the mortgage lending business. Kyle said, “The opportunity to help people is what drew me to this business. While in college, I interned for a financial advisor out of state and had a great experience. However, I always felt the pull to come back home. I then asked to job shadow a family friend, Garry Settle, who had been in lending and banking for 20+ years. After seeing what he did on a day-to-day basis and the impact he had on many people’s biggest financial decision, it was clear to me that this is what God had planned for me. Looking back on the many smiling faces, tears of happiness and hearing the words ‘thank you’ at closing tables, just re-affirms why I LOVE being a loan officer!”
