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.

Vern and Amy are great at being right on top of everything you need to refinance your mortgage in a short time frame. It was simple, done quickly, and a fast turn around. With Covid, everything was done online and through email. I don't even know what Amy looks These two will get everything done for you that you need and answer all questions in a very timely manner. I highly recommend Affiliated for all your mortgage needs.
