She has found her home and her calling, but Madison Haltom took somewhat of a circuitous route to end up so happy as the Mortgage Loan Originator for Farmers Bank and Trust in Prosper. But once you meet this smiling young lady, you will understand why she has been so successful in that role.
Originally from Texarkana, TX, Madison dreamed of being an occupational therapist as she had a strong desire to help people. However, life happens and after getting her undergraduate degree from the Texas A & M branch in Texarkana, she went on to get her master’s in business administration.
Her 22-year-old sister, Hannah, had moved to the Dallas area in pursuit of her real estate career in a rapidly growing market and had invited Madison to a dinner attended by a 20-year veteran vice president of the mortgage department at Farmers Bank, Nicole Raley. Obviously, Ms. Raley was struck positively by Madison’s attitude and obvious intelligence and advised her of the position in the mortgage department of the bank in Prosper.
Madison has truly found her calling in her position. Though the position can be stressful at times and she has to deal with unexpected circumstances and the dynamic nature of the guidelines. She proudly states that she stays abreast with those changes as quickly as possible so that she can offer her clients the best advice possible. The position, she says, allows her to help people with the biggest purchase they will make in their lives. She also states, “My reward is seeing their excitement and thankfulness”.
One of the advantages of dealing with a smaller bank such as Farmers Bank and Trust is that when you call will get an answer and never a recording. This not only reduces the client’s frustration but also demonstrates the bank’s commitment to the client. Personalization and professionalism seem to be the key components of Madison’s role.
When not at the bank, Madison stays busy with self-development projects such as studying for a real estate license, which will complement her current role. She also says that she loves hot yoga and goes almost daily.
So, if you want to consult with anyone about a mortgage, you should contact Madison by calling her at (469) 296-1257. Or visit email her at Madison.Haltom@myFarmers.bank.
