Kiki Calumet and Heather Chymka
Executive Vice President
A and N Mortgage Services, Inc.
Kiki Calumet, executive vice president of A and N Mortgage Services, and her loan coordinator, Heather Chymka, have been working together for years, which has created a seamless process for their clients to flow through.
“In my previous career, I was a middle school math teacher, and being a teacher never left me,” says Calumet, who is currently in her 14th year in the industry. “Being a teacher has put me a step ahead in the mortgage industry. I am able to educate my clients on the process, as well as all of their options, so they can make an informed decision that best meets their financial needs.”
Teachers apparently know best, because Calumet has received the Five Star Professional Award in 2011, 2012 and 2013. She’s also been recognized in the top 1 percent of mortgage originators in the U.S. for 2012 and 2013, and been a member of A and N Mortgage President’s Platinum Producer’s Club since 2008. The deservedness of those distinctions is only amplified by Calumet and Chymka’s easy-going personalities and proven business approach.
“In the mortgage industry, I find it is important to be flexible,” Calumet says. “While we have just come out of the industry’s longest sustained refinance boom, I have stayed connected to the purchase market, even as rates were falling. We are very well-positioned to support our clients and professional partners.”
In the future, A and N Mortgage will look to grow its business partnerships with Realtors, attorneys and financial planners, and continue strengthening its already stellar team.
“It’s so important to have a great team behind you,” Calumet says. “Our support staff is excellent, and Heather truly is a huge reason we are so successful.
Across the board, we are detail-oriented and understand all aspects of our deals, so there are no surprises at the end – just exceptional service.”
