During this holiday season and time of thanksgiving, we wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude to those who help make our lives rich and rewarding. As a local lender of home loans, we have so many opportunities to interact with some wonderful individuals. Yes, it’s part of our business to help make others’ dreams come true, but we also get so much more out of the experience.

For example, every day we work with customers who are excited and hopeful about buying a new home. Whether they are in the pre-approval stage or ready to close on their home loans, they are definitely looking to the future and all the possibilities that their new residence will bring. To be a part of that excitement is just one of the reasons our work is so meaningful to us. And, it’s why we work so hard to make the experience a positive one for our customers. We may not be the ones buying the home, but we get to relive the delight each day with every one of our customers who is about to embark on a new chapter in their lives.

We are also grateful because we work with some amazing people who are both smart and caring. Each member of our team here at Starboard Financial, whether located in our Gilbert or Chicago offices, plays an integral role in providing home loans to our customers. We all have a purpose here, and we must work together to help make the process for each customer a success. It’s this continued teamwork that makes what we do enjoyable, productive, and worthwhile.

For us at Starboard Financial, what we do comes down to one thing: People. This may sound cliché, but when it’s the truth, there is nothing cliché about it. As lenders of home loans, we’re not just about interest rates, percentages, and numbers. We ARE a company made up of people who care about people and who find satisfaction in helping people. And for that, we are truly grateful.
