Meet Lauree

When it comes to mortgages for a home purchase or refinance, people want a process that is simplified and has their financial goals in mind, but they also want their Mortgage Loan Officer to treat them personally with care, understanding, professionalism, and empathy. Lauree Leyland with Volunteer Mortgage Group / USA Lending gets that.

A self-admitted “people person”, Lauree has never met a stranger and loves helping her family, her community, and her clients.  “I love that I can work in an industry that many people find challenging and stressful, and have made it an outlet to make a difference in people’s lives and in the lives of their family and community as well.  I have always been service oriented, whether it was on the mission field in the Cumberland Mountains, in Guatemala after the earthquakes or as a university administrator working one-on-one with students for 16 years or with a few of the Tennessee Titans by helping them organize and host their individual charities and events, the most rewarding part of any job has been impacting lives for the better.  My career as a mortgage professional is another extension of that premier life goal. I am passionate about doing more than just “the job”. I am passionate about what improves the well being and financial future of my clients, and I am passionate about making my clients feel that when the process is done, I am not only their loan officer but a friend.”
