Premier Nationwide Lending Joins Hands with CBS Eco Media to Support Blessings in a Backpack

03/25/2014

Flower Mound, Texas – Premier Nationwide Lending (PNL) is proud of and excited about its partnership with CBS EcoMedia in support of the Blessings in a Backpack program. The mission of Blessings in a Backpack is to provide nutritional food for elementary children across America who may otherwise have little or no food to eat on weekends during the school year. Sadly, there are 20 million kids in America who are at risk of hunger. PNL’s support is helping solve a major issue in our country.

Specifically, PNL is working with Uplift Peak Preparatory , a K-12 campus located in East Dallas near Baylor Hospital. Students in this school often come from challenging backgrounds so the ability to have meals through the weekend really sets up the students for success. “They are able to not worry about not having food over the weekend or going hungry and not being the first thing on their minds on Monday morning. They are able to come to school really ready and prepared to learn,” said Sara Ortego of Uplift Peak Preparatory.

A team of PNL employees met at the school to do a “stuffing” of the backpacks on December 10, 2013. They included food that was easy to heat and eat like mac and cheese and other nonperishable items like fruit snack packs and crackers. There are 50 students participating for the school year of 38 weeks for a total of 1900 backpacks going out in just one year with a 3 year commitment of 5700 backpacks.

“At PNL, we are about family”, stated Brian Phillips of PNL, who is actively involved with the program. “So this really does fit our business model. The fact that we are feeding 50 kids for the next 3 years is remarkable.”

Deanna Adams, also from PNL , shared how she saw kids in the hallway of the school putting on the backpacks. “It was just incredible. They were smiling and giving me the ‘thumbs up’ sign. It was great!”

“PNL with it’s great team of employees and level of community commitment has the ability to give back and to share with others, to help others to live a better life, “ said PNL’s Sean Briggs, father of three. “I can certainly relate to how important it is for kids to be well nourished so they are ready to learn.”

At CBS EcoMedia Inc., their vision is to harness the power of advertising and channel it into tangible social change. They create a relationship between a CBS platform, such as CBS radio in Dallas, a corporate sponsor like PNL and a not-for-profit organization such as Blessings in a Backpack to bring everyone together for a common cause.

Residential Mortgage Loan Originators

Originally I wanted to be a nurse; after all, isn’t that the dream of most little girls? I really wanted to help people and thought this would be the best way. I was first exposed to the mortgage industry as a clerk – working toward my nursing goal behind the scenes. I rapidly became enamored with how crucial the mortgage service industry is in the lives of people, helping them in a very surreal way – with their finances! Nursing slowly took a backseat as I realized the hands-on learning I was experiencing as a loan clerk could be put to immediate use in the lives of folks who desired to find a safe place for their family to call home.

I have now been a part of the mortgage lending industry for over 23 years. I do not regret my decision one bit. I moved from loan clerk to loan processor very quickly, surpassing all branch volume expectations and was recognized as Top Processing Supervisor.

Being so enthusiastic with lending; I began originating loans and endeavored in my personal production goals. I feel I have a unique passion for people and their desire for security and homeownership. You see for me, it doesn’t stop at simply the client buying a home. I look at the entire family financial picture, analyze their objectives and ensure that this new mortgage payment and all that comes with it will provide peace of mind & confidence for the future. Because in the end, a beautiful home is no fun on a Friday night if all you can do for dinner is eat PB&J while staring at the same television screen!

“It is really all about the client and their family. By removing myself from the equation, I am able to focus on their objectives; not merely for the home itself but for their overall financial goals. This is crucial if I hope to earn trust that deserves loyalty! It is more than just a house; it is their home and family’s very own place of security”.

This is how I developed a truism that I take deeply to heart - “It’s Your Home. It’s My Reputation. I CARE about Both!”

I am honored to say that my efforts & dedication to the right things have paid off. I was rated the top 1% of Mortgage Professionals in the State of Texas by Texas Monthly Magazine four years running – 2011, 12, 13, & now in 2014. I take this tribute seriously and am blessed by the recognition!

I am committed to providing my clients with the highest quality home loans combined with great interest rates and sensible closing costs. No matter where in Texas you desire to call home – be it Clear Lake, League City, Friendswood, Deer Park, Pasadena, Pearland or anywhere in this Great State – I am ready to help ease your concerns and provide you with the honest answers and education you need to make the best decision for your family!
