BELLEVUE, WA – November 28, 2016, Axia Home Loans, a top residential mortgage firm, is delighted to announce the addition of Shelly Schwieso, SVP of Business Development. A 28-year veteran, Shelly is known for her passion to help loan advisors maximize their opportunity for individual growth through operational excellence and commitment to client experience. During her recent time as VP of Mortgage Strategies for Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines (formally Seattle), she built a strong foundation to their mortgage programs in the Pacific Northwest. 

Gellert Dornay, President and CEO of Axia Home Loans, had this to say about her hire, “I’m super excited to welcome Shelly to Axia’s executive team! Her decades of experience in leadership roles with the Federal Home Loan Bank, Thornburg, and other fantastic mortgage companies, banks, and GSEs will make a huge contribution to our continued growth and positive impact on the communities we serve.”

After becoming 100% employee owned, Axia has experienced a serious uptick in top candidates interested in joining the company. Employee ownership has had a significant positive effect on the firm’s culture and it shows. Not only do current employees have a higher morale, it also attracts top talent from around the country.

A very enthusiastic Shelly said, “I joined Axia because they aren’t just building a state of the art mortgage experience but because I wanted to be a part of something truly special: a sustainable employee-owned mortgage company focused on the joy of homeownership.”
