SUNSHINE & BREEZES

SHELLY QUINN Her husband’s career brought native New Yorker Shelly Quinn to Lake Norman nearly twenty years ago…and it also brought her a new career of her own. While shopping for the mortgage for their new home, Shelly met with a local loan officer who happened to be from her hometown of Rochester. They began chatting, and when she learned of Shelly’s experience in the financial industry, she suggested Shelly consider becoming a mortgage loan officer herself. As a result, Shelly filled out two applications that day: one for her mortgage and one for a job. She was approved for both. Nearly two decades later, Shelly loves her work as much as ever. She is currently the branch manager of Silverton Mortgage, where she continues to help people get into their dream home. “Every client is unique, so every day is fresh and I learn something new constantly,” she says. “It keeps me on my toes and keeps the brain working hard!” Without a doubt, Shelly’s talents and passions—the traits that make her uniquely her—have helped her become the successful Lake Norman lady she is today. Below, she gives us an inspiring glimpse of the woman behind Silverton Mortgage as she shares some of the things, experiences, and people that motivate her, fill her heart, and bring a smile to her face.

Back to the good weather…Shelly especially relishes it when she’s at the beach: “I love to go to Folly Beach. It is so relaxing and the beach is awesome for walks and biking. Sunshine and an ocean breeze are hard to beat! I also love the Carolinablue sky, 85-degree temperatures, and floating in the pool with my hubby while listening to music.”

FLIP FLOPS

“I would wear them year-round (and sometimes I do wear them in the winter, too). I feel relaxed and content when I have them on.”

Stress is a part of most professions, however, being a mortgage lender can be particularly stressful because purchasing a home is such an emotional experience for the buyers. And though Shelly loves helping her clients navigate the mortgage process, she also enjoys winding down from a long, hectic week. She and her husband typically go out for dinner and a drink, some of that aforementioned great conversation, and a lot of laughter. w
