Scott, Johnson earn President’s Club honors
Alaska USA Mortgage Company has recognized its top producing mortgage loan originators for 2014 by inducting them into the President’s Club, a group of originators who close $30 million or more in loans during a calendar year.
This year’s honorees include Ken Scott and Rhonda Johnson of the Kenai Peninsula, and Jeff Stanford, Kristin Harding, and Colleen Harrington Baer of Anchorage. Combined, the five originators closed more than 700 transactions totaling more than $176 million in 2014. All have been President’s Club members in previous years.
“These originators are the most talented that I’ve had the pleasure of working with in my more than 25 years in the industry,” said Debbie Ingle, Executive Director of Mortgage and Real Estate Lending. “Their expertise coupled with their ability to guide homeowners from application to closing and beyond, is what classifies them as the best of the best.”
Scott works in Kenai, and has been a President’s Club member every year since joining the company seven years ago. Johnson works in the Kenai, Soldotna, and Homer offices, and has been a President’s Club member for eight straight years.
