KRISTIE M. ARMSTRONG

REGIONAL VICE PRESIDENT NMLS#2230573

Kristie, a native of Arkansas, embarked on her mortgage career following her graduation with honors from Lyon College in 1993. Her journey began in Wholesale Lending, where she diligently climbed the ladder, transitioning through various operations and sales roles, from Underwriting Assistant to Branch Manager.

In 2010, Kristie transitioned to the Retail side of the industry, discovering her passion for recruiting and supporting origination teams nationwide. Collaborating with esteemed Sales

Leaders, she found fulfillment in empowering Loan Officers to expand their businesses and celebrating their achievements.

During her decade-long tenure at Gateway Mortgage Group, Kristie proudly served as the West Divisional Operations Manager, overseeing operations for over 30 branches nationwide. In 2020, she embarked on a new chapter, joining Highlands Residential Mortgage as Vice President of Production Support, where she worked on recruitment, onboarding, and training initiatives for new branches, providing unwavering support to all production employees.

Now serving as Regional Vice President of Town and Country Lending, covering Arkansas and Texas, Kristie is thrilled to fulfill her dream of being closer to home while leveraging her extensive experience in the industry.

Outside of work, Kristie enjoys delegating house projects to her husband, Jason, doting on their two dogs, Drakey and LillyBelle, indulging in reading, attempting (albeit not expertly) baking endeavors, and cherishing moments with her loved ones.

JASON E. ARMSTRONG

DIRECTOR OF SALES | SR. LOAN OFFICER NMLS#1781768

Jason embarked on his journey in Mortgage Lending back in 2001, starting as a processor and producing loan officer in Dallas, Texas.

Overcoming the challenges of establishing a successful branch in Dallas, he not only excelled but also took on the responsibility of training new staff and catering to the needs of borrowers and Real Estate referral partners.

In 2004, he seized an opportunity to lead the sales team for a mortgage wholesale branch in Las Vegas, Nevada, achieving remarkable results and setting record numbers during his tenure there.

However, in 2008, Jason shifted gears, transitioning into the role of Director of Sales for Stone Brewing Co, headquartered in San Diego, CA. Under his leadership, the company witnessed unprecedented growth, with a team of 62 Beer Representatives across the nation and overseas achieving record-breaking sales volumes.

Returning to his roots in Mortgage Origination in 2016, Jason expanded his reach into the Texas market, later adding Arkansas, Colorado, and Louisiana to his portfolio. Once again, his primary focus remained on ensuring client satisfaction, whether it meant realizing their homeownership dreams or bolstering their investment portfolios.

By 2022, Jason and his wife made the decision to relocate to Arkansas, closer to Kristie’s family. Despite being a fourth-generation Texan, Jason found immense joy in his new surroundings, embracing the community and forging new connections in Arkansas.
