A Tradition of Service
"Just because everything is different doesn't mean anything has changed." ~Irene Peter
Old Traditions, New Dedication
Deborah Sturges, the founder and President/CEO of Hallmark Home Mortgage, was senior vice president at Waterfield Mortgage when the longtime Fort Wayne firm announced in 2006 it had been sold. Six-hundred fifty local jobs were lost in that transaction, Sturges’ being one of them.
Out of that loss and Deborah’s desire to continue providing the Fort Wayne area with quality home mortgage solutions - Hallmark was born. This rapidly growing Fort Wayne based company now has Indiana offices in South Bend, LaPorte, Kendallville, Indianapolis, and Evansville and Ohio offices in Columbus and Cincinnati.
When the decision to create Hallmark was made, Deborah turned to the highly experienced Waterfield staff she had worked with for years, who were suddenly available and eager for a new challenge. The Hallmark family was formed and continues to grow.
A Mark of Excellence
At Hallmark Home Mortgage we have worked hard to recreate the sense of family, loyalty and mutual respect that we enjoyed at Waterfield. It translates into a pleasant experience for everyone who walks through our doors. From a friendly greeting to the superior customer service you receive throughout the loan process, Hallmark lives up to it’s name.
