Meet Vern Burress

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 worked with Vern at Affiliated Mortgage. Affiliated Mortgage was recommended to me by my Sister of which used Affiliated to purchase a home. Vern was very responsive, very helpful, answered any questions that I had and found me a loan that was better than anything I could have expected. To go further, we were able to close early. My Realtor even made multiple comments that Vern and Affiliated were a joy to work with even though it was there first time. I have nothing but good things to say about my experience.

Vern was so helpful and informing! He did everything he could to help us get the best possible loan type and well as set up a game plan to boost credit scores. He was available whenever we needed him and would often answer our questions even after normal business hours. He made the homebuying process as simple and painless as possible!
