Darlene Kemp, Team Sales Manager

I believe in the dream of home ownership, and I believe that I can make a difference in the experience. My job is to listen and to understand the short- and long-term financial goals from each borrower. I believe that each borrower is the most important part of the home buying process, and my job is to help them make educated choices and prepare them for the best possible loan program to fit their needs. Whether a borrower is ready to buy now or a year from now, it is never too soon to get on the right path.

I also believe in the industry. In the complex mortgage world, I believe if I can educate not only home buyers, but real estate agents and other mortgage loan officers, we can collectively help more people, not only get into a home, but to help them build financial stability with home ownership.

I have been in the real estate, settlement, construction, and mortgage industry for over 30 years, and I love taking my experience from each venture to help grow others.  I have taken my years of experience and created educational programs, not only for buyers, but for real estate agents and other mortgage loan offices. I have been licensed to teach Principals of Real Estate and Real Estate Finance in the state of Virginia for 15 years, spent years as a Director of Atlantic Bay Mortgage University where I helped bring new people into the industry. Wrote and had approved by the NMLS a required pre-licensing curriculum and coached numerous Mortgage Loan Officers who are now among some of the top in our industry.

I believe in the association that keep our industry strong and currently serving as President of the Tidewater Mortgage Bankers Association and on the board of the Virginia Mortgage Bankers Association.

I love what I do and have made it my life’s mission to continue to learn and to grow and to help as many as I can along the way!
