Producing district manager, Pacific Northwest, South King County
Academy Mortgage Corporation
Kim Wolcott’s integrity, entrepreneurism, professional excellence and commitment to her community have earned her praise and recognition at Academy Mortgage. Most recently, she was a finalist for the 2017 Duane Shaw Achievement Award, Academy’s highest honor.
Wolcott joined the mortgage business in 1989, repeatedly seeking a position as a receptionist at a local lender’s branch, where she later became the branch manager. Today, she has the unique position of being a producing district manager who originates loans and also manages branches. Last year, she closed $28.2 million in personal production and led her district to 19% growth in purchase volume, resulting $536 million in total volume for her district in 2016. These efforts earned Wolcott a spot in Academy’s President’s Club for the second consecutive year.
Over the course of her long career in the mortgage business, Wolcott has been involved with numerous industry and civic organizations, including her local chamber of commerce, Kiwanis Club and Association of Realtors. As evident in her day-to-day life, Wolcott serves all those “within reaching distance.” Almost every week, she visits local assisted living centers and nursing homes to distribute hats, mittens and toiletries; hand out lollipops; or play a game of cards. She sponsors a family every Christmas, personally shopping for gifts for each family member. In addition, Wolcott has taken Academy’s partnership with Habitat for Humanity to heart, participating in several local builds.
