Coastal Style's Faces of the Shore 2017

A proud resident of Ocean City, Kari Story began her illustrious career in 2002 after having graduated Cum Laude from Salisbury University with a degree in Mathematics and Statistics. She says that after four incredible years on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, she knew she would never leave: “Once I had my feet in the sand, I knew this was home!”

Kari has enjoyed a highly successful career as branch sales manager of First Home Mortgage in Ocean City, earning many company designations and awards along the way. She has a reputation for impeccable detail, vast knowledge and unparalleled customer service. Her enthusiasm to share and promote the
“Life is a Beach” philosophy infuses her work with the prospective homebuyers of the Eastern Shore area.

Founded in 1990, First Home Mortgage was launched with a handful of employees and a singular vision: stay local and be independent. With an experienced support staff, leading producers and a fundamental base of solid community relationships, the company quickly grew to more than 400 employees in 35 offices across 17 states. It has been voted one of Baltimore’s “Best Places to Work” on multiple occasions.

First Home Mortgage is a correspondent lender, which means they have several investor affiliates who help them secure the most competitive rates in any market. Just as important, First Home underwrites and process all of its home loans in-house, giving it an uncommon level of supervision and control.

“We’re not a retail or commercial bank,” Story said. “Making loans is what we’re in business to do; that’s our only product. We have a due diligence to create quality loans that perform and support the long-term viability of the borrower. The loans must also be transparent and sustainable, which is precisely why our ability to underwrite our own loans is such a vital component of First Home’s stability over the years.

“Without question,” added Kari, who is a member of the Coastal Association of Realtors and the Woman’s Council of Realtors, “we have the expertise and resources to secure the most competitive loan possible for whatever type of residence you want.”
