Amber Mihm, Mortgage agent, DLC Forest City Funding
In June 2016, Amber Mihm joined DLC Forest City Funding, bringing with her 12 years of banking experience, 10 of which were in mortgage lending. After spending many years working for a major bank, Mihm realized that becoming a mortgage agent would allow her to provide her clients with more control over the type of financing they could access.
In her first six months as a mortgage agent, Mihm managed to quickly navigate the channels of brokering, getting to know lenders, policies and procedures, resulting in $7.3 million in volume during that time. Now in her first full year as a mortgage agent, Mihm is already managing a DLC branch of seven agents. So far in 2017, she has funded $7.2 million in volume, and she expects to reach the $15 to $20 million mark by the end of the year.
