Question: How long have you worked at Essex?
Answer: 3 years and 7 months
Question: Why do you like working at Essex?
Answer: We have the loan programs to be able to help pretty much anybody in any situation. It’s easy to get help if needed from management, and even though we fund billions of dollars a year in loans there is still that small family feel to it because your voice is heard.
Question: What's a fun fact of yours?
Answer: The River Cats moved me out here from Chicago to work for them. In the year I worked for them before I moved to doing mortgages, I was cold calling Parks and Recreations to sell them group tickets to bring the kids out to our kids day. One of the contacts I reached out to is now my wife and mother to our two beautiful children!
Question: What is your favorite Christmas movie?
Answer: It’s a toss-up between Elf and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.

This means that the borrower's principal and interest payments will remain the same each month. Even with fluctuations in the market, the borrowers interest rate will be locked in place.
