Q&A with Christie Paulk

What made you decide to be a BankSouth Loan Officer?

Growing up I moved six times within a one-mile radius. This was how my family planned for their retirement. They profited off every home they either bought or built. I learned early on how great an investment real estate can be and how it can change a family’s financial dynamic. This led me to start my career as a loan officer assistant while I was finishing up college.

What accomplishments are you most proud of?

I am self-taught. The loan officer I worked under never showed up for work. I started while I was in college so not only was I studying for school, I was studying the mortgage industry and learning how to become a loan officer by reading regulations, guidelines, and a lot of trial and error. In my second year in the industry, I graduated from the Mortgage Bankers Georgia Future Leaders Program.

Flashback to when you were 10 years old. What do you want to be when you grow up? Why?

I wanted to become a U.S. Marshal. I was a gymnast who learned what mental toughness was at an early age. I enjoyed being pushed to my max and challenged every day to become better. I then sat down and watched the movie U.S. Marshal with my dad which is the exact moment when I said that is what I want to be when I grow up. I think it was the vigorous training Marshals go through that piqued my interest.

What do you enjoy doing on weekends?

Playing golf
Watching my son play sports
Going to the lake or the farm with my family

Christie and the entire staff were awesome! I’d been comparing mortgage rates throughout the process and decided to go with BankSouth because they cared enough to explain the process and their low rates. They were dependable and quick to respond whenever I had a question. It felt really good at closing when told that my rate was low compared to others in this crazy market.

From start to finish the entire process was smooth and stress free. The portal is very convenient for submitting documents and tracking the process. If I had to do it all over again I would definitely choose BankSouth!

From the start of the bank selection to the end of loan process Christie has been most helpful and professional. Living 3000 miles from Georgia was quite challenging but Christie made it happen.
