Meet August's Creating Connections Hostess: LeAnne Merciez, Loan Officer with Universal Lending
A brief description of your business.
I provide home loan strategies for Colorado and Arizona residents looking to purchase, invest or refinance.
What makes you passionate about what you do?
My passion stems from my true belief that everyone should have the opportunity to buy a home or investment. It may not be right away, but I can help create a strategy that helps them get to that goal.
Can you describe a success story that involves your business?
I recently was able to help a self-employed client purchase their first home after being turned away by other banks. I was able to think outside the box and now they are happy in their Arvada home.
Do you have an ideal client?
No ideal client: Anyone looking for a mortgage lender who cares. I do specialize in self-employment and VA loans.
What do you enjoy doing for fun?
When I have free time, I enjoy traveling and hanging out with my family. I’m usually up for anything outdoors, sports related, or involving any sort of game.
What is your favorite thing about Colorado?
My favorite part of Colorado is the mountains and the people I have met over the years.
Why do you enjoy being involved with Creating Connections?
Creating connections allows me to meet the most wonderful women. As a working woman and a mom, it is hard to find time to meet new people. This gives me that chance.
What is a secret talent you have that few people know about?
My secret talent. I can eat 12 Krispy Kreme donuts in one day. Hahaha
What would be your perfect day?
My perfect day would be fly-fishing with my family or watching my daughter play softball.
