Meet Vern Burress
Senior Loan Officer - NMLS # 14234

I was born and raised in a small town in northern Minnesota. After graduating high school I attended the University of Minnesota at Moorhead. After visiting Rapid City during the winter months of 1993, I decided that the 60 degree weather of Rapid City was a bit better than the negative 20 of Fargo/Moorhead. I moved to Rapid City in 1993 and never looked back. I am very fortunate to have a great family. 

I started in the mortgage industry in 2000. I came to Affiliated Mortgage in 2002 and have never looked back. I have always said I would never have a “job.” When you love your work it is not a job. Life is too short not to love what you do for a career. Even with all the recent changes in the banking industry it is still great being in the mortgage industry. It is so fulfilling to assist home buyers in purchasing a new home or assisting current home owners in improving their financial situation during a refinance.

I ended up at Affiliated by chance. (I drive past there almost every day) when I decided to get serious about purchasing my first home I decided to stop it. I did shop around but no one could come close to offering me what Vern did.I couldn’t have chosen a better lender, affiliated will be my go to. The one I recommend to anyone who asks.Hoping to send you clients and more reviews like this one.Thank you for your kindness, humanity and honesty.Shelly

I cannot begin to express how satisfied I was from the beginning of the loan process to the signing of the final closing docs. Vern was there every step of the way giving updates and answering questions that I would have. I have used Vern's services twice, once for my home buying purchase and then again with a refinance of my home and I would highly recommend his services without thought or hesitation. If there were another star I could give, I would give it. Thanks Vern.

I have worked with Vern on financing and re-financing a few times and the experience has always been very easy. He ensures that you receive the best possible rate and works with you every step of the way to make sure the process is as smooth as possible. He's very responsive to all communications, which really sets you at ease. I will continue to work with Vern and Affiliated Mortgage for years to come!
