Beth Honea, Loan Officer/VP Mortgage Service

Mortgage Loan Officer License MLO-2837VA
14 years with Bank of McKenney
What Beth likes most about her job:
Helping first-time homebuyers get educated about the mortgage process. Often first-time homebuyers get some grant money and ultimately complete the purchase of their home.  

In her spare time she likes gardening, canning, sewing and reading.  

Motto or favorite quote: “Remember when I didn’t know.” Mortgage business is quite taxing for new buyers, especially if ‘I can’t remember when I didn’t know,’ (the mortgage business). I can better educate them on the process, help them to set realistic expectations and have a rewarding home purchase experience."


Lorainne Lester, Mortgage Loan Officer

NMLS #332583 13 years with Bank of McKenney

What Lorainne likes most about her job: Usually, buying a home and the mortgage process is, for most of us, the largest, most stressful and overwhelming transaction in our lifetime.  That makes our jobs as advocates for the borrower extremely important.  I love building that relationship. We have such a special opportunity to do that, because relationship building is such an integral part of the Bank of McKenney’s vision.  Our customer’s continue to feel a connection to us and the bank long after the mortgage closes and that is what most rewarding to me.  They trust and rely on us on into the future because they know our goal is to give them the best we have to offer, whether it’s a rate, product or our time.

In her spare time she likes to spend time at her church with her family and spend time with her dogs and horses.

Motto or favorite quote: "Positive minds full of faith and hope produce positive lives."

Motto or favorite quote: "Good things come to those who wait."
