Affiliate Committee Spotlight

Lisa Beranich, Mortgage Loan Officer with First Tech Federal Credit Union

“I’m back, and excited about it” –  After a 12 year absence from the mortgage industry, I have joined my husband John, as a mortgage loan officer with First Tech Federal Credit Union.  John has been with First Tech Federal Credit Union for the past 6 years and he and I each have more than 20 years in the mortgage lending industry. I left the mortgage industry to join the relocation industry with a focus on international relocations, traveling to more than 60 countries, visiting US Embassies and Consulates around the globe as a federal government contractor. I was able to see places and meet people I could have only dreamed about, with my favorites being Israel, Columbia and Hong Kong.

While in the relocation industry, I obtained my CRP, Certified Relocation Specialist and GMS-T, Global Mobility Specialist-Talent Management designations and am currently a candidate to complete my CMB, Certified Mortgage Banker certificate in 2021. With all the time spent in the relocation industry, one of our lending areas of focus is helping relocating employees and foreign nationals with no credit who relocate to the US obtain the dream of home ownership through a specially designed program offered by the credit union.

John and I enjoy traveling, camping in our retro trailer, skiing in Winter Park, cooking and spending time with our dog Paisley, and two cats, Roo and P2. We live in Longmont and have three grown children and two grandchildren ages 9 months and 7 years old, both of whom live in Colorado as well.

So excited to connect with friends and meet new ones as part of the Longmont Affiliate Committee.
