I began my long career in mortgage lending while in high school and continued to work through college. While studying Architectural Design & Construction at Colorado State University I delivered Title Policies for Lawyers Title on my bicycle (before fax and email was even a thought). In the last 30+ years, I have been a delegated underwriter for the FHA, Veterans Administration, and both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. I’ve held management positions from District Manager to Executive Vice President/National Sales Manager. For the past 16 years, I have been the Principal of The Kirney Team, working with my husband Brian (for the past 15 years) and Son Kirk (for the past 7 years).
Having been featured in such publications as The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post, and on Good Morning America, Sirius/XM Radio and Federal News Radio; and with speaking engagements at The George Washington University as well as several Networking organizations in the Metro area, mortgage industry and non-specific industries as well; I have had the privilege of sharing my story and strategies for success. My team and I were named in the Top 200 Loan Originators in the US in 2012. I am the Founder and CEO of The Kirney Group, Inc., an active real estate investment company and Black Fox Investments, LLC a real estate management company.
In my workshops and training sessions I share strategies I have applied in reaching my goals ; while maintaining a balanced lifestyle. Through my group and personal coaching, I advise and guide my clients based on personal goals and abilities. I have consistently generated over $1 million in personal annual revenue for the past 20 years and I show others how to realize these goals as well through systems, structure, implementation and goal setting.
My husband and I have lived in Virginia for 25 years and on our 21-acre hunt country property for the last 11 years. I am active in my church, love taking short weekend trips to visit small towns, and large cities, to continue my Life Learning! Often you will find me on my property either picking wild berries to make jams/jellies, decorating, or target shooting. I am an avid reader, ballroom dancer, baker, traveler, boater, philanthropist and wine connoisseur.
