Cheryl Calhoun - Government Underwriter (Underwriting)
“My motivation comes from helping people achieve their dream of homeownership.”
Cheryl joined us as part of Freedom’s acquisition of Continental Home Loans, and in aggregate, she has been a part of the team for over 18 years. As a Direct Endorsement Government Underwriter, Cheryl handles conventional, FHA, and special program loans. She thoroughly examines applications for accuracy and compliance, helping to get Freedom customers approved for their loan. From there, she moves the loan process along to get the borrower to the closing table on time.
My motivation comes helping people achieve their dream of homeownership. Being a homeowner was a huge goal for both me and my family. The feeling that I got after achieving my goal is something I want all of our customers to feel as well.
Cheryl’s drive to succeed is largely due to her biggest role model in life – her mother.
She was a single mother of five children who held down a full-time job and went to college at night to earn her Associates Degree. She bought her first and only home to give my siblings and I a great place in which to grow. She showed me through her actions that hard work pays off. She taught me that I can continue to reach goals and my highest potential.
In her free time, Cheryl is an avid reader. She enjoys crime and suspense novels. She also loves listening to music and dancing around the house while cleaning and spending time with her family.
