As the daughter of a builder and developer, Holly Walther was immersed in real estate from a young age. Although she originally set her sights on medical school, a summer job at a mortgage company ignited a passion and interest in her that was all too familiar. She knew assisting people with the biggest purchase of their lives was exactly what she wanted to do.
Twenty-three years later, Walther, branch manager at The Holly Walther Lending Team with Success Mortgage Partners Inc., has been honored with numerous Top Producer awards from her employer and industry organizations. But it’s the positive feedback from clients that truly inspires her. “They describe our team as exceptionally attentive, supportive, extremely professional and caring,” she relays. “This is always an amazing reminder why I do what I do, and it keeps me going.”
This past year, Walther achieved one of her career goals: exceeding $150 million in volume. She credits this to past clients’ and Realtor partners’ sending referrals her way, as well as the hard work and dedication of her team. Throughout her career, she has navigated both good and bad markets, but one thing has always remained the same: She works hard to customize each financing program to help clients achieve their financial goals. She also treats them all like family.
“I know at the end of my life, I won’t be reflecting on the dust-covered awards,” she says. “I will be reminiscing about the lives I’ve touched; the relationships with referral partners that became more like family and friends; the faces of clients when they bought their first home or moved on to a different phase of their lives; and the team that I had the honor to work beside every day.”
Still, Walther is inspired most by her husband and three sons. To give back, she supports many local nonprofit organizations.
