Core Values

The Mortgage Mark Team has five Core Values. These are the characteristics that are mandatory for our teammates. Our five core values are:

  1. Be the G.O.A.T.
  2. Win in the Dark
  3. Rules of a Knight
  4. Selfless Stewards
  5. Seriously Fun


We want our teammates to be GOATs (the Greatest of All Time). We want everyone to be best version of themselves that they can be. This means that they perform at high levels, demand the best, and elevate their teammates.

Win the Dark

Our team members win the dark. This means putting in the hours beyond the normal 8-to-5 workday. Everyone is expected to spend time outside of work elevating their knowledge of the industry and improving their craft.

Rules of a Knight

Rules of a Knight is a fantastic book by Ethan Hawk. Our team emulates the code of ethics outlined in the book: honesty, integrity, and humility.

The Giving Tree

Another book we mirror is the children’s book The Giving Tree. We honor the tree who gave everything without expecting anything in return. We love our clients and want to give them everything we can.

Seriously Fun

Getting a home loan is serious business. We take our mortgage responsibilities very seriously, and we love our teammates and clients. We want our excitement and joy to be obvious during such an important process.
