Every year, MPA (Mortgage Professional America) publishes a list of Elite Women in the mortgage industry. For the second year in a row, Kristina Heath has been selected as one of 70 female industry leaders who are shaping the future of the mortgage industry. Kristina is an owner of KTL Performance Mortgage and one of the leaders of the Your Expert Mortgage Team group.
Kristina was born and raised in Darke County, Ohio. After spending close to 20 years in the automotive sales management and financing field, Kristina was ready for a change. In 2003, the owner and founder of Performance Mortgage invited Kristina to join his team and thus began her career in the mortgage industry.
Kristina’s passion for delivering great customer service, combined with her drive for excellence, quickly made her one of the top producers at Performance Mortgage. In 2009, she became a 25% owner of the organization. Since becoming a partner, Kristina has been instrumental in developing and growing the business from approximately 265 closed loans in 2009 to over 780 in 2017.
Your Expert Mortgage Team
In 2013, Kristina and partner John Heath joined forces as Your Expert Mortgage Team for sales and marketing purposes. The team has since grown to include eight mortgage professionals all working towards achieving their common goals. Your Expert Mortgage Team’s purpose statement reflects the team philosophy: “Our purpose is to enhance our client’s home buying experience by delivering outstanding service in every facet of the loan process. We achieve this by LOVING what we do, who we do it for and who we do it with. Our goal is to make dreams come true.” Kristina truly LOVES what she does and is grateful for her amazing team. Her goals are not only to achieve personal success, but to mentor her team members and help them develop into successful mortgage professionals.
A Dynamic Leader
Kristina is a dynamic leader that inspires those around her to do great things. She is a member of the Business & Professional Women of Ohio and is one of the founding members of the Richmond Independent Networking Group (RING), where she works to facilitate networking relationships among business professionals in the Richmond, Indiana area. Kristina recently accepted a position on the Board of Trustees for Main Street Greenville, an organization that promotes the historic preservation and economic development of downtown Greenville, Ohio. She is proud of her roots in this rural, hardworking, farming community, and is looking forward to contributing to the continued economic and cultural growth of the area.
In her own words
When asked about being chosen as one of the 2018 Elite Women in Mortgage, Kristina remarked,
I am honored to be included in this list of accomplished women! My success is not about me though. It really is a team effort and I owe my success to the hard work of all of the members of Your Expert Mortgage Team at Performance Mortgage and our amazing support staff. They are a group of truly elite men and women!”
