My name is Kristin Hardaway. I know my last name sounds like “hard way” but and I promise, when you work with our team it’s definitely the EASY way. I’ve been a Senior Processor for 10 years, but started working in the loan industry when I was just 18 years old. With over 20 years of experience under my belt, you can be assured you’re in great hands. I first started my career in escrow and felt a pull toward this field because it’s been in my family for years. My mom’s entire career flourished within the escrow industry – and seeing her success and happiness immediately prompted me to follow in her foot steps. Now, years later, I’m sharing in that same happiness and satisfaction with every transaction I work with.
What I love most about processing is seeing the final result come together. Processing a loan is like putting together a puzzle for me. Gathering all the correct items to make it whole is something I not only enjoy doing, but I excel in. I love organization and giving the underwriter the entire picture to make sure it’s approved and ready to go to.
Think Bonnie and Clyde. That’s how I interact with borrowers on each loan. We are each other’s right-hand, there for each other and constantly talking and interacting. I have to be patient yet swift, and articulate my communication skills, organization and overseeing all pieces of the puzzle.
It’s just that: we are truly a team. We’re all involved and know exactly what’s going on. Michelle, Dee and I are an amazing trio, working together hand-in-hand to ensure everything happens smoothly and easily. Michelle is always keeping me updated and is transparent with all parties during every step of the way. I love this about my colleagues. I trust them wholeheartedly and I know that our clients do too.
I’m so thankful to announce that I was ranked a top processor, named: “Processor of the Year” for the past 2 years in a row at NAFINC. This special award is very dear to my heart, and I’m hoping to continue this streak for years to come. I love challenging myself to grow and learn consistently. I work very hard for our company and our clients. My record for closing is on average from 30-40 loans a month, and that’s just with The Piccinini Team alone, not considering many other transactions I’m working on.
I specialize in the Nevada area, and I’m very familiar with their rules, regulations, and processes, although I do enjoy practicing my processing skills in other states as well.
Not only do I work hard, but I definitely play hard. I’m a wife to my amazing husband Jimmie, and mom to our two adorable sons, ages 5 and 3. We love family outings, movies and the beach – always aiming to have fun and soak up all the sweetness of life together.
