Kristen Graska joins The CORE Team as a Sr. Loan Officer and brings her years of experience to the Team. She began her career in the mortgage industry as a Mortgage Originator after graduating from Southern Methodist University in Dallas with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. Kristen transitioned to the Mortgage Processing Manager for her branch to provide support for the team of loan officers and underwriters by ensuring that all files were organized, met government and conventional guidelines, passed compliance and helped determine the credit worthiness of their clients. This experience helped Kristen become fully versed in every mortgage product available including down payment assistance programs.
During her tenure with FirstSouth Mortgage, Kristen built key relationships with her team and assisted hundreds of families purchase and refinance their homes. She thoroughly enjoys guiding her clients through the home buying process and helping them find the best mortgage option available. Kristen currently holds her Loan Officer license in both Texas and Florida.
When she is not assisting her clients with their home purchases, she volunteers with Young Friends at the Wilkinson Center and throughout the Dallas community. She loves spending time with her husband, precious baby boy and two Persian kitties. Kristen looks forward to guiding fellow Millennials and families through the home-buying process.
