Race for the Cure

As a loan professional with First Horizon, I'm proud of our national commitment to support the Susan B. Komen Race for The Cure. We will donate more than $1 Million nationally over a 5 year period to the Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

To do my part, I've created a team in Saint Petersburg, FL to raise money, and to walk the 5K on October 6th, 2007 at Vinoy Park. This will be my 4th year leading a team, and for those of you who haven't participated, it really is a fun and relaxing day. It's only $30 to donate and recieve a t-shirt.

I know, I know, some of you don't want to get up at 7am on a Saturday...uggh. But! I have a solution: Sleep in for the Cure Registration is only $35.00. You can select this option to join the Race in spirit and "Sleep In" race morning. They'll even mail you a Sleep in for the Cure pillowcase. So, if you want to walk, or donate, or just sleep in, click here, and join my team!

Lastly, my personal pledge includes a portion of every loan I close between September 1st and October 1st. This means I'll donate $100 for every loan you close with me or refer to me during this time.

Thanks everyone for supporting this worthy cause!

What Makes First Horizon Different?

What makes First Horizon Home Loans different? What makes any mortgage company different? I believe it's the relationship formed between the Loan Officer and you, the customer. From the first time you made application until now, I've been your Relationship Manager. But, many of you aren't using my services as much as you could. I'm not just here in case you need to buy a new home, or refinance an existing mortgage; I'm here for "All Things Financial". I'm available for questions regarding Checking, Savings, Online Banking, CD's, Wealth Management, Home Equity Lines, the list goes on.
More importantly, I'm here for any questions or concerns you have about your account with First Horizon. Need help with your Escrow? Need to know if your Homeowner's insurance has been paid? What about paying down your principle? What if you're a few days late on making a mortgage payment, or your just want to know if you can set up a bi-weekly program. I can assist you with all of these concerns or questions. I'm tempted to even tell you to throw away the "customer service number"; why wait on hold, when you can call me directly, or shoot me an email? (800-453-7170 ext. 103 or
This is what makes First Horizon Home Loans different. As your Relationship Manager I'm working hard to make our bank stand apart from the crowd, and to make your experience with us exceed all of your banking expectations.
