Branch Operations Manager Jamie Russell from The Dobz Group of Direct Mortgage Loans has been in the mortgage industry for 16 years. When asked what she loves most about the industry she states, “I enjoy being part of a team where everyone puts their heads together to work through unique and challenging scenarios. Getting the opportunity to help others achieve their goals of homeownership and seeing their happiness is a very rewarding experience.” 

Additionally, Jamie has been with Direct Mortgage Loans for over six years and has been a vital part of our organization’s success. When asked why she decided to join DML she says, “A friend of mine was working as a recruiter at the time and was incredibly persistent about having a conversation with me about making a change. She knew that DML was exactly where I needed to be even before I knew it. After doing some research on the company and seeing the culture it had, I knew it was time to at least entertain the idea. Once I interviewed and learned even more about the company, I knew it was a no- brainer.” 

Jamie and her team have been working together for a while now and have, in her words, “pretty much become an extended family.” From supporting each other on the clock, to attending weddings and charity events off the clock, she has made lifelong friends and connections along the way. She states, “DML has an incredibly welcoming and fun culture. I feel fully supported in my current role and have found a work/life balance that is incomparable. I feel like I am fulfilled in my career while still having the ability to be my best self for my family, which is a huge deal for me.”  

Furthermore, Jamie has won DML’s Mission, Vision, and Values Award and has been recognized countless times during our Recognition Meeting for her extraordinary support. Outside of work, Jamie enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband, three sons, and their rescue pup!  

Jamie – You’re one of a kind and we’re incredibly lucky to have you as a part of our DML team. We can’t thank you enough for all the amazing work you have contributed over the years. Cheers to many more years of success together!
