Julia Borst, Senior vice president and divisional sales manager, Guaranteed Rate
A 20-year mortgage industry veteran, Julia Borst first brought Guaranteed Rate to Utah in 2009. At the time, there were just four employees in one branch doing $40 million in annual production. Today, Borst leads a division covering Utah, Idaho, Montana, Colorado, Nevada, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota and Nebraska, and is on pace to fund well over $1 billion in 2017.
“What I am most proud of is the environment that my team and I have created for our loan originators to accomplish their goals,” Borst says. “We live by our core values. We know what those look like and what we want to accomplish together. When you build strong relationships with employees, referral partners and customers – and live up to a very high standard that you set for yourself – anything is possible. We want to disrupt what is normal in the industry, never worrying about what ‘might’ happen, instead being fearless in decision-making to drive the very best results.”
