From all of us at Finance 1 LLC., we want to congratulate Steve on his retirement!

Steve retired at the end of April, 2017 after more than 35 years in the mortgage business. We are thankful for his years of excellent service and friendship and wish him the best of luck for the future.

Steve started his career in Minnesota. His career took him to positions of manager, auditor, director of marketing, district manager, and VP of operations in all financial industry fields.

Steve has excelled throughout his career and decided in 1996 to go into business for himself. This allowed him to make decisions in the best interest of his clients rather than relying on “corporate policy” to get things accomplished. His commitment to his clients is unmatched, always going the extra mile to achieve his client’s goals instead of his own.

Randy and Steve have been close friends and business partners for over 40 years. Randy is available to help you with all of your mortgage loan needs.
