Raise your hand if you have explained what communication was like pre-iPhone era to your kids. 🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋‍♂️🙋🏿‍♂️Yes, things have changed. We see those communication changes with our clients too. Today, many home buyers come to us through real estate apps such as @zillow One thing that remains the same is the personal customer service we offer no matter how a client reaches us. We’re always happy to help!

Meetings are underway for TMBA’s annual convention in San Antonio. It’s been great resource to our industry for over 100 years. Hope to see you there!

Lots of praise and great reviews came in for Senior Loan Officer Jon Thibault when his recent clients closed on their new home in Dallas. They couldn’t be happier with their experience. Congratulations on another happy client, Jon!

Looking for a home in North Texas? Howdy partner, you’re not alone!
According to a recent report by The Dallas Morning News the DFW area added more than 1 million people in an eight-year period. The gain was more than any other metro area in the country. .

The region’s population is now calculated at more than 7.5 million, which makes it the fourth largest metro market in the US. DFW falls behind New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, which are all losing residents. .

Thankfully, we have been providing Texans with home loans for over 3 decades. We’re always ready to extend some Texas hospitality and serve our new neighbors with a smile!

Today is a beautiful start to a spring weekend. We’re hoping yours finds you with those you love, and with plenty of chocolate eggs in your basket. 🐰🐥🐰

With over 30 years of providing home loans, we have the experience and knowledge to give you excellent and efficient service. You can trust that our know-how is ready to go to work for you!

Although it won’t come with a green jacket, we’ll make sure you’re on par to close on the master of your dreams. Congratulations, Tiger Woods —what a Masters to remember!

Masters weekend often divides us into two groups:
1) those who watch every hole while eating obligatory pimiento cheese sandwiches
2) those who give the whole thing a polite golf clap and use it as background noise for a weekend nap
Which category are you in?

We’re proud of loan officer Will Smith! His recent clients gave his service high praise, and we’re thrilled with how quickly and efficiently their home loan closed. That means, more time in their new home! Great job, Will!

We love serving Texans, so we’re thrilled to see great teams from the lone star state play in the big dance. Congrats to Baylor University’s Lady Bears, who clinched the national championship title last night! And, congratulations to Texas Tech University's Men's team on their first appearance in an NCAA championship game to battle for the national title. We’ll be cheering you on tonight!

Meet Jackie Pearson. She serves as marketing manager to our growing team of internal loan officers. Prior to becoming part of Great Western, Jackie worked for a title company. That added layer of experience gives her a wide view of the housing industry. Today, she works as a liaison between our realtor partners and in house loan officers. She develops relationships and introduces new agent partners to our services. Her comprehensive knowledge of the home loan process and connections across the industry serve her well as she grows her influential role. Jackie brings enthusiasm and polish to everything she does. We’re thrilled she’s part of our team!

We’re happy to welcome April—all fooling aside!

We’re always available to answer questions. In fact, it’s a big part of the personal service we offer. We want our clients to know that helping them understand their home loan is a top priority to us. So, ask us anything!

Wow! Loan officer, Ryan Melton received a phenomenal review from his recent clients. They went on to say, “He was extremely helpful, and always answered my questions thoroughly.” We’re so proud of Ryan’s consistently excellent service. .

This is your #mondaymorning reminder that today is a fresh start on a new week. We’re ready to take it on! C’mon Monday, let’s do this!

Three cheers to the weekend! Here’s hoping this weekend finds you gathered round the table with friends—in a home you love.

It’s spring! 🌸 This time of year is a sweet time to make a new start. We see fresh opportunities blooming right along with the season. What’s rejuvenating you this spring?

Once you’ve applied for a home loan, hold off on opening any new lines of credit (car loan, credit card, etc.). Putting additional purchases on hold until after closing, will help you avoid last minute surprises!

How will you be shamrocking St. Patrick’s day this weekend? Hoping to find a pot of gold to pay for your dream home? If you don’t find the luck of the Irish, contact us about a more dependable option for a home loan. We know how to get you into the home of your dreams without getting pinched!

Recent home buyers in Athens, Texas are so happy with the service they received from Kathy Hill. They loved her communication and knowledge, as she guided them smoothly through their home loan process. It’s always fun to hear great reviews!

Daylight Savings Time & Benjamin

One of the original “smartest guys in the room” came up with this idea for the new United States back in 1784. Yep, that’d be Ben Franklin.

Ben was known to be tight with a dollar. He persuasively convinced others to go along with his idea, reasoning that if we woke up with the sunrise and went to bed with the sunset, Americans would save money on…..candle usage.

All States aren't required to observe daylight savings time. Hawaii doesn’t, but nobody cares because Hawaii is just cool. Then there’s Arizona, where daylight is way too long and hot. Besides that, candles melt really fast in Arizona.

I’m assuming Ben never went to Arizona or whatever it was called back then.

Texas clocks spring forward again this Sunday, March 10. Have some fun, save a few candles and enjoy the outdoors.

Hey home buyers, which words would you use to tell us about your dream home? On this cold, Monday in March, we’re betting your list starts with: FIREPLACE! 🔥 .

Please reach out about starting the pre-approval process. We’ll get you started on the home loan process, so that when the right house comes along, you’ll be warming your toes by the fire in no time!

Meet Marthanne Freeman. She came to Great Western after 24 years of managing a house hold and raising children. Once her children were adults, she was ready to apply her skills to the work force. The home loan community was new to her, but she was eager to learn. As a loan coordinator, she is an integral link in the process. “I am a personal connection with our buyers for the middle ground work,” said Marthanne. “I talk to people wherever they are in the process and find out their timeframe, needs and goals to purchase. I am a personal extension of our loan officers to the home buyers. Great Western took a chance on me because I was willing to learn and work hard.” Thanks for showing such determination, Marthanne! Your team and customers are thankful for your willing spirit!


That’s a word we hear over and over from first time home buyers. After they’ve closed on their home, they comment that they greatly valued the communication and patience received during the process. And, it makes sense. Working through a home loan for the first time, means learning new terminology and systems, and it can be tiresome.

We’re so thankful we have a team that understands this. Our experience allows us to be patient with the process, and that results in a calm, confident customer experience. No wonder patience is a virtue!

We’ve got great news to start a great new week! Loan Officer Jennifer Ann Gerlich received a glowing endorsement from her recent clients. She helped them purchase a home in Mesquite, Texas, and they were thrilled with her excellent level of service and communication. We’re happy to pass along another stellar report. Congrats, Jennifer Ann!
