Alaska USA Mortgage official recognized

Anchorage — Alaska USA Mortgage Company Assistant Vice President Rhonda Johnson has earned the Excellence in Profession award from the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce.

Each year, the Excellence in Profession award is presented to an individual who has attained and personified the highest level of excellence in their business or profession.

“Rhonda’s knowledge of the mortgage programs available to borrowers is so extensive. She finds a way for many, many families to realize their dream of homeownership,” said Becky Hutchinson, area vice president of Alaska USA Federal Credit Union, who has worked with Johnson for almost 18 years. “These programs often require a mountain of paperwork and consistent follow-up with the borrower and the lender. Rhonda’s calm and patient demeanor keeps borrowers calm and on task, with the end result being a home.”

Johnson has more than 30 years of experience in the mortgage industry, including originating, processing, closing, underwriting and management. She also manages Alaska USA Mortgage Company offices in Kenai, Soldotna and Homer, and has developed four classes for the Alaska real estate community, all of which have been certified by the State of Alaska Real Estate Commission. Johnson also is a frequent guest on Homer radio, providing mortgage financing information to listeners, and she holds mortgage financing classes for local builders on the Kenai Peninsula.
