Caroline Roy

May 10, 2019

I started my career in the mortgage industry in 2006. Since then, our industry has changed tremendously. I’ve had the opportunity to originate loans in the midst of these changes which has allowed me to grow with our businesses and utilize all of the tools available to us for the benefit of our customers. I am always happy to be presented with the challenges of each borrower’s unique situations and expectations for their financing needs. Every new loan is a puzzle waiting to be solved. Building strong business relationships with each borrower is crucial to meeting and exceeding those expectations whether a purchase or a refinance. Bozeman is a great community that I am happy to be a part of. And I love the opportunities to help my customers invest in that community in their own ways. My enthusiasm for a challenge does not stop at the workplace, however. When I am away from the office, you will likely find me cycling, fishing, skiing or hunting anywhere around Montana with my husband and our three little boys.
