More than 100 Nevada families achieve the dream of home ownership
The Nevada Rural Housing Authority (NRHA) awarded Annette Hunt, sales manager of the Guild Mortgage branch in Elko, the prestigious Centennial Award for her work in helping more than 100 Nevada families obtain home ownership using NRHA’s Home at Last down payment assistance grant program. Hunt is the first member of NRHA’s new “Centennial Club,” and also was recently presented with NRHA’s January 2016 VIP Award for this work.
“Annette has been an incredibly dedicated Home at Last partner, always working hard to ensure homebuyers understand how our grant and Mortgage Tax Credit programs can help them achieve their dream of affordable homeownership,” NRHA Home at Last Specialist Melissa Meneses said. “We’re thrilled to honor Annette for her outstanding contributions to assist our communities in rural Nevada.”
Hunt has been helping Northern Nevada families close their mortgage loans for ten years, and she launched the Elko branch of Guild Mortgage in 2012.
“As a Native Nevadan and lender, I’m passionate about helping get such wonderful Nevadan families into their homes,” she said. “My team’s motto is “your story matters,” and with this focus on the uniqueness of each family, we can make a positive and impactful difference in one of the most important life milestones for those we help. NRHA allows me to help families who might not otherwise be able to purchase a home.”
Hunt is actively involved in the Elko community, donating time and money to various non-profit organizations, including Horizon Hospice, Relay for Life, Joshua Tree, Festival of Trees, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and local school charities. She, her husband Robert and their two children Anna (16) and John (20), also take every opportunity to enjoy Elko’s landscape to hunt, fish and explore.
