Local Loan Officer Christina Lane Honored With Diamond Award Of Excellence

Thursday, March 28, 2019

 Christina Lane, senior mortgage loan officer with Movement Mortgage, has been awarded the Chattanooga Mortgage Bankers Association (CMBA) Diamond Award of Excellence.

In order to qualify for this honor, the winners had to have reached at least $20 million in production. Ms. Lane not only reached the qualifying $20 million, but exceeded it at more than $25 million in 204 closings for the year of 2018.

“I’m honored to have been able to help so many people in 2018. It’s very rewarding knowing you’re part of helping someone purchase a home,” said Ms. Lane. “Some people don’t think they can become a homeowner for one reason or another, and I love being the person to help them realize that it’s actually achievable.”

In addition to the CMBA’s Diamond Award for Excellence, Ms. Lane also earned a spot in Movement Mortgage’s Presidents Club for the second year in a row. This designation means she is among the highest tier of producers at Movement Mortgage, and her efforts will be rewarded with an all-expense-paid trip to Playa del Carmen in Mexico.

“This job can be so stressful, but being recognized in this way makes me feel appreciated and makes me want to take it to the next level this year,” said Ms. Lane. “The amount of people who actually get these awards based on how many people are in the business -  it makes you feel special. It makes me love my job more.”

She said her goal for the coming year is to reach 45 million in volume and help 250 people achieve their homeownership dreams.

“It’s a big deal to buy a house,” she said. “I try to make my clients feel like they’re the only client I have. That what I strive for.”

Ms. Lane lives with her husband and five children in Ooltewah.
