PIERRE — South Dakota Housing Development Authority’s (SDHDA) annual housing conference concluded recently with the recognition of Jamie Olson from American Bank and Trust in Huron as this year’s top loan officer for Area 7.
“Without dedicated lenders who originate SDHDA’s loan products, we would not be able to provide affordable homeownership opportunities for South Dakotans,” said Brent Adney, director of homeownership programs. “SDHDA appreciates all the work Jamie does for this organization and her strong commitment to our products.”
Loan officers from SDHDA Participating Lenders were divided into seven geographic areas by county population base and the number of SDHDA loans purchased to determine the top producers.
The SDHDA Loan Officer Recognition Program is an annual honor designed to recognize those loan officers who consistently promote affordable housing by offering SDHDA programs. All together the seven top loan officers originated $25.8 million in First-time Homebuyer loans during this last year.
In addition, SDHDA also honored the top five lending institutions within the state. They are Plains Commerce Bank, First Bank and Trust, Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation, Wells Fargo Bank and Great Western Bank.
