Our Leadership Team’s Philosophy

As the trusted source for financial services, Churchill embraces our responsibility to serve our customers, employees and communities.

In everything we do, we seek to build long-lasting relationships, based on honesty, integrity and trust.

Founded in 1992, Churchill Mortgage is a privately owned company by its more than 400 employees. A full-service and financially sound leader in the mortgage industry, the company provides conventional, FHA, VA and USDA residential mortgages across 36 states and the District of Columbia. We're also the only mortgage company that financial author and talk show host, Dave Ramsey, discusses on his show. Dave's willingness to feature Churchill on his show is based on his personal knowledge of Churchill's owner and executive staff, as well as his confidence in Churchill's service commitment to each and every customer. We have earned a reputation as a mortgage company who can get loans done that other companies have not been able to. And the fact that we receive most of our business by referrals sets us even further apart. You will not find another business that is honored with as many personal referrals as Churchill Mortgage.
