Ashley Rustom, Senior loan officer, Element Funding
After spending almost nine years as a successful real estate agent, Ashley Rustom decided to switch to the mortgage business after seeing a void in her community for an excellent and friendly mortgage lender to cater to local financing needs. She joined the industry in 2010, armed with her real estate experience, which has given her a better perspective and a more nuanced knowledge of the business. Rustom joined Element Funding in 2013 and has maintained top producer status ever since, bagging quarterly customer service awards based on client surveys. She remains devoted to her job and finds it rewarding to be able to help so many people obtain their dream homes. Rustom aims to help Element Funding grow its Atlanta market presence while maintaining quality service.
Outside of her day job, Rustom is a member of her local chamber of commerce and a nominee for Leadership Rockdale, a program that provides for personal and professional growth and serves as a springboard for local community leadership opportunities. A mother of three, she spends ample time volunteering at her children’s school to help achieve a healthy balance between work and family. She is also working with her local Division of Family and Children Services office to get certified to foster children in her community, which she considers a personal calling.
