Mary Barker is a seasoned Mortgage Analyst as well as an expert Closing Specialist. She is somewhat famous at JVM for putting up some of the most impressive pre-approval numbers in the history of the company. Mary left JVM temporarily when her spouse’s employment took him back to Maine, and for some reason, he wanted to bring Mary with him 😊. But, new technology and far more efficient remote-work options allowed us to bring Mary, and all of her talent and experience, back to JVM! Mary’s background as a property tax specialist combined with her mortgage industry knowledge is invaluable and allows her to facilitate a seamless, efficient, and friendly closing process for all of JVM’s borrowers.
Prior to her career, Mary attended Kenyon College, earning a degree in International Studies with a concentration in Environmental Science. Her love for the environment led her to work at a public interest research group devoted to environmental issues. Later, Mary’s passion for animals steered her to volunteer at a wildlife rescue organization and work in an emergency veterinary clinic, where she enjoyed the fast-paced environment and performed well under pressure. Mary now lives in Portland, Maine, after spending a few years in the Bay Area and most of her life in the snowy climes of Madison, Wisconsin and Buffalo, New York. In her free time, she enjoys hiking and camping with her husband, Jeff, relaxing with her dog and two cats, and cheering on her hometown Buffalo Bills.
