Hollie has been a member of the Fort Worth Mortgage Bankers Association executive board for the past three years and served as the president in 2019-2020.
“At this point in my career, who I work with is as important as the job itself. Couple this with a senior management team that had the vision to invest in the next evolution of home finance, as evidenced by its leadership in eNotes, my decision to join Mid America was an easy one,” Hollie said. “Mid America has already put in the work and commitment to create a take-out option for hard-to-place loans, and my goal is to increase awareness of this key capability and demonstrate Mid America’s ability to provide this liquidity alternative consistently and at a competitive price.”
