Amanda Brown - Senior Government Underwriter
“I love imagining a customer with their family enjoying life in their new home.”
Amanda has worked in the mortgage industry in a variety of roles for more than 20 years. But if you ask her, she’ll tell you that underwriting has been her favorite area by far. As a Senior Government Underwriter, she handles conventional, FHA, and special program loans. She is responsible for thoroughly examining applications to ensure they’re complete, accurate, and compliant while helping move the loan process along to closing. Her goal each day is to make sound credit decisions that benefit both the customer and Freedom Mortgage.
“I think the most exciting part of my job is being able to play a big role in helping someone achieve their dream of owning a home. When I review a customer’s file, I love imagining them with their family enjoying life in their new home. As an underwriter, you really get to be part of a truly special moment in a customers’ life.”
Being an underwriter comes with its fair share of challenges, too.
“The toughest part is trying to balance Freedom’s volume of loan submissions. It can be hard to decide what goes first: A new commitment? A loan in for closing? But I find that I really enjoy the challenge, especially during our busiest times.”
Amanda attributes her success to the family-like culture that Freedom prides itself on.
“Freedom is very in-tune with their employees and the help you receive from across the company is amazing. From sales to operations to upper management, I have been given the encouragement and support I need to flourish.”
When she steps away from the desk, Amanda enjoys going on weekend adventures with her husband and two sons.
