Rebekah Balkcom Killgo, Senior loan originator/loan specialist, AmeriSave Mortgage Corporation

Rebekah Balkcom Killgo has been at AmeriSave Mortgage for more than a decade, which is quite rare in this business. A loan originator for most of her career, Killgo has also taken on various management responsibilities through the years. After moving from a management position back to loan origination, Killgo has secured a spot in the company’s President’s Club for the past three years, even during her pregnancy in 2016. She credits her successes to her husband and her team at AmeriSave, who faithfully provide the support she needs to get loans closed and make borrowers happy.

Despite working in a male-dominated industry, Killgo has found plenty of opportunities for women to thrive. “From what I have seen, [women] who stay in this business are strong, driven women who stand out in any crowd,” she says. “Because this business is mostly [composed of] men LOs, I think that is a benefit for me as a woman. I gain the trust of my borrowers more easily because I do not have that ‘salesman’ voice.”
