Homie Highlight: Sari Lederman

At HFG we believe our culture is more than just a buzzword, and when we asked this month’s Highlight about having fun at work, she said: “If I didn’t, I wouldn’t be here. We create a family at HFG and it is a very nice atmosphere. I am glad to be a part of it.” That atmosphere is what helped us win Best Place to Work in Minneapolis in 2017.

Sari Lederman is a Licensed Mortgage Professional in the Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN market and has been originating loans for her clients with us since August 2015. Sourcing your own business can be challenging, but not for Sari and here’s why. “We consistently provide a great closing and a smooth funding process which gives me the ability to grow my business by showing my customers great service,” she says. The amount of repeat business and referrals shows just how Sari and her operations partners fulfill her deep-rooted statement: “We are all part of a team that wants to get the job done!”

Her family is what she is most proud of, which includes three wonderful children and a fantastic son in law. And we cannot forget her 5-year-old Schnauzer. As long as the weather is above 20 degrees, Sari and her husband make it a point to take her on a long walk after each work day. In those tough winter months, they can be found in Florida visiting her family and continuing those walks together.

As the Midwest Region Culture Committee Lead overseeing our charitable initiatives, Sari has delivered results in giving back. This past summer she led her region in collecting 1173 items and donating over 60 hours of their time. Just this year, HFG’s Midwest Culture Committee has given back to charities including Boys and Girls Club, Feed My Starving Children, Reach-a-Child, Rebuilding Together, Open Arms and more. She says that “there is always a sense of pride when we complete an event planned by our Culture group. I think we realize how fortunate we are and making sure we can help those in need in our communities is just part of being a Homie.”

Please help us congratulate Sari Lederman as our 2017 Cultural Ambassador of the Year! As a reward for strongly upholding our Mission to promote goodwill among our offices, employees, and our local community, she will be attending our President’s Club trip along with her husband. Although the Schnauzer will have to remain at home, please enjoy an amazing trip and we thank you for your servant leadership.
