I love working at Graystone Mortgage.  My co-workers are helpful and friendly and I enjoy coming to work everyday.  In addition, I know that Graystone has a strong market presence in the mortgage industry, which gives me confidence that we are providing our clients with top notch service.  We have beautiful office locations, a full range of resources and training available, and are small enough that I know everyone in the company.  In addition, Graystone drives business and directs policy with the backing of strong values and ethics, which is very important to me.  We have the opportunity to contribute within our communities through quarterly service projects, and other charitable programs.  It feels great to know that our company really cares about making a difference in the lives of the people we serve.  It’s the small things like that which make Graystone the best place that I’ve ever worked!

Jessica Cartwright

Marketing Director

I have had the privilege of working for Graystone Mortgage for seven years now.  I cannot express the positive feeling I have every morning when I walk into work to greet the smiles and waves of my sweet, wonderful bosses and co-workers! Everyone has been so wonderful to work with: so kind, so caring, so considerate!  Approximately two years ago, I learned I had stage four breast cancer.  Graystone Mortgage- the managers and my fellow co-workers alike- rallied around me like they were my own family.  Their generosity was beyond amazing.  They started several fundraisers to help with my hospital bills and time off work.  They organized food delivery to my house.  Their only concern was for me, not for any work I may be missing.  Simply said, Graystone Mortgage is more than a job for me- it’s a place I find solace, support, comfort, and laughter… all while working our butts off.
