Everything Christina Longo Trethewey does is meant to make the mortgage process easy and transparent as she lands her clients the best rate possible. “I know that challenges can arise, so to make my clients feel at ease, I maintain open communication,” says Trethewey, vice president at Guaranteed Rate. “I respond to messages the same day and provide educational tools to ensure clients are prepared for each step they take towards their financing goals. Making clients feel at ease is half the battle!”
This approach has worked well for Trethewey. In 2021 she surpassed $200 million in funded loans and made Chairman’s Circle — a huge milestone for this devoted wife and mom of two young boys. She also has been named among the top 200 loan officers in America by the Scotsman Guide annually since 2014, and among the top 1% of mortgage originators by Mortgage Executive Magazine for the past 10 years; made Guaranteed Rate’s President’s Club for the past 11 years; and recently placed in the top 30 among the Scotsman Guide’s Top Women Originators in the country.
“Know your guides, know your products, know your clients and know your loans — the more you know, the more confidence you have, the more trust you earn and the more business you develop,” she says. Learning all she can about the market and working with the industry’s best has helped establish Trethewey as a reputable, trustworthy resource. “I don’t give up,” she insists. “I just find a way to get it done.”
Networking plays a big role in Trethewey’s operations. “I’ve been doing it for years,” she shares, “and I truly enjoy being friends with my real estate agents! After spending over 15 years in the industry, I’ve built a strong network that’s always generating referrals and makes what I do so fun and meaningful.”
