GSF Mortgage has announced the addition of 15-year mortgage industry veteran Teresa Nelson as branch manager in Iola, Wis. In December 1999, Nelson answered an ad for a telemarketing position at a mortgage company. When the company needed a processor, she quickly accepted. Working her way through the ranks, she held positions as office manager and loan officer before she decided to purchase the company in 2007.
When helping her customers, Nelson keeps them informed of the next step; she maintains full communication from start to finish. She always attends her closings because she says the best part of her job is seeing the happy faces on first time homeowners.
“We are pleased to welcome Teresa to our family. Her industry knowledge and entrepreneur skills will guarantee her branch’s success," said GSF National Sales Director Mike Maida. "We look forward to helping her grow her business."
Nelson’s daughter has been helping her in the office from a very young age. When she leaves for college, Nelson will replacing her with a processor and will be expanding her branch with experienced loan officers.
