Q&A with Ivy Eilerman

What motivates you to learn your profession?

I am the oldest daughter in a group of 6 children, so taking care of people is something that comes naturally to me. In 2001, I applied for a position with a lending company from a newspaper ad. I was hired for the position, and it eventually launched a career that turned into a passion all these years later. Every day, I get to help people and assist homebuyers. I simply love what I do!

What skills or talents do you have that most people don't know about?

In my spare time, I like to play guitar and also enjoy song writing. I have performed in a few shows over the last several years. Recently, I have tried my hand at background acting.
Pertaining to home loans, I believe the characteristics that set my team apart are: commitment, communication, experience, responsibility, responsiveness and community. Over the years, I have been referred to as a ‘miracle worker’ by some of my referral partners and clients.
My team and I have raised more than $10,000 for Habitat for Humanity in 2022 by hosting a local singing competition in Springfield, GA.

What awards have you received in your field?

I am honored to have won several awards in my field, including:

  • 2022 Homebuilders Association of Greater Savannah: Small Team of The Year
  • 2021 MBAG Platinum Award for Excellence in Mortgage Banking (MBA)
  • 2020 Best of The Coastal Empire- Best Mortgage Lender
  • 2020 Effingham’s Most Fab Mortgage Lender

I also serve in the appointed position of Associate Director for Homebuilders Association of Greater Savannah (2016-current) and is the past-President (2019-2020) for Mortgage Bankers Association, Savannah Chapter.

Bio of Ivy Eilerman

Ivy Eilerman was born in Savannah, GA. She grew up in Rincon, GA, the oldest daughter in a family of 6 children. In 2001, she stumbled into her first job in the lending industry, handling cash-out refinance business for a mortgage company in Savannah. “It was a natural fit. Knowing I was offering a service that could help struggling families meant a lot to me,” says Ivy. This satisfied an inherent need to help people, and it’s been the guiding force since then.

Mortgage Market Interest Rates

Interest rates for mortgages can vary significantly from one borrower to the next based on the specific details of the transaction. Some of the main factors that affect the interest rate are credit score, down payment or loan-to-value, the type of mortgage, and how long the interest rate is locked.

The information below depicts average rates on a national level. These rates are not specific to BankSouth Mortgage but are provided to give a general idea of where rates are nationally for different loan types. This information is calculated from actual locked rates with customers across 35% of all mortgage transactions nationwide.

This is not a commitment to lend and does not guarantee the availability of any particular product or interest rate. Rates/terms illustrated in the chart may not be available through BankSouth Mortgage. Rates and information in this chart are powered by OBMMI™ (“Optimal Blue Mortgage Market Indices”). The OBMMI™ methodology takes the average rate of all appropriate interest rates locked through the Optimal Blue, LLC (“Optimal Blue”) product and pricing engine (“PPE”) on a given day. No adjustments to the rates that account for buy-up or buy-down decisions made by individuals are performed. These indices leverage data from Optimal Blue PPE lock requests (approximately 35% of all locks nationwide) aggregated daily and updated nightly with the previous day’s locks.

Ivy and her team will be my go-to mortgage lender for any future home purchases. This was the smoothest home purchase experience I have ever had. The communication was extremely thorough and responsive, and we were able to pull-in our closing date earlier than expected. All-in-all, a great experience and I recommend Ivy to anyone looking to purchase a home.

I worked with Ivy Eilerman and her team to purchase my second home in the Savannah area when we moved from NC, and I couldn't be more impressed with the level of service I received. From the beginning, Ivy and her team were incredibly responsive and always available to answer any questions I had throughout the process. Their attention to detail and dedication made the entire experience smooth and stress-free and I got one of the best rates in the market at the time. I highly recommend Ivy Eilerman to anyone in need of mortgage services. She’s truly an outstanding lender!!!

I highly recommend Ivy Eilerman with Bank South for all your mortgage needs! I closed my personal home with her recently. Ivy and her office were professional, available and quick to respond with all my questions. We were also able to get a low interest rate and low closing costs. Ivy is a pleasure to work with.

There is absolutely no one like Ivy and her team. I have had the pleasure of working with her on the purchase of 2 homes now and it was flawless and easy both times. Such a smart and compassionate person. I'd recommend her to any and everyone and I will go to her time and time again! If I could leave 10 stars I would!!

Ivy Eilerman has been my go to mortgage broker for years. I’ve closed 4 homes with her. She goes above and beyond for her clients so much so that she would work directly with my accountant upon my request to make the process easier for me. She streamlined everything and makes it easy! Not only is she kind, but she is a Christian woman who has the sweetest disposition! This class act always closed my loans early!
