Vice President of Mortgage Lending
2014 is the “year of change” for Leslie Struthers. To Struthers, this means a year of changes that can lead to new opportunities.
“It’s a perfect market for growing my business,” she says. “There are a lot of opportunities to do that right now – changing my business strategy, changing how I approach deals, changing my work habits. Change is what it’s about right now.”
Consistently ranking among the top 1 percent of mortgage bankers in her field for the past 15 out of her 23 years in the industry, she is no stranger to hard work. Citing technical skills as her expertise, Struthers repeatedly finds solutions for clients. Through years of experience, Struthers is clear that thorough research, being willing to go to bat for a deal and keeping her word are her trademarks in this industry.
Struthers joined Guaranteed Rate four years ago, and credits the company for helping her stay ahead of the competition and always supporting her and her clients.
“I’m lucky to be with a great company that stays ahead of the curve and always supports its lenders and our borrowers,” she says.
In her spare time, Struthers is an active board member of PAWS, and recently adopted a blind dog from a rescue shelter. She also spends time gardening, with friends and family or taking hot yoga classes.
