Name: Kaye Jones
Business: Sr. Loan Officer with TowneBank Mortgage
When was TowneBank Mortgage started? TowneBank started from humble beginnings in a two-car garage in Portsmouth, VA in 1999 and has evolved to become one of the fastest-growing new banks ever chartered in the Commonwealth of Virginia, but, never losing sight of our roots.
How long have you worked for TowneBank Mortgage? Since 6/25/2016 but TowneBank bought Monarch Bank where I had worked since 6/14/2010, thus making it a very smooth transition. Prior to that, I worked for Carolina State Mortgage since 06/1998. My same mortgage team has been with me throughout my entire career – approx. 22 years as a Mortgage Loan Officer.
What is your favorite thing about your job? My greatest joy as a Loan Officer is helping those people who are purchasing their very first home. It is the American Dream!
If you could do another job for just one day what would it be? I’ve often thought if I had another career it would be working as a nurse. I’m very compassionate and would enjoy helping patients that need help, especially those that don’t have a voice.
How long have you known Mark and Sandy? I have had the pleasure of knowing Mark and Sandy for over 20 years through our business relationship along with the Outer Banks Home Builder’s Association and ACS Relay for Life. Since then Sandy and I have served together on numerous charity events here in the Outer Banks including Scholarship Golf Tournaments, Hospital Galas, Get Pinked and more auctions than we can count all in effort to make our community a better place. While serving on the Board for OBHBA, I’ve had the opportunity to work in Sandmark Custom Home’s beautiful homes in our annual Parade of Homes event. This is so much fun as Mark’s homes are always top award winners in this event. And we have become the best of friends!
What is your favorite thing to do on the Outer Banks? My favorite thing is going to the beach and enjoying this beautiful place we get to call home. I work really hard so I live for that time on the weekends with my friends to relax, regroup or read a good book. Another wonderful thing about the Outer Banks is all the great restaurants we have. We enjoy great dinners with friends and of course, good wine!
What brought you to the Outer Banks? I came to the Outer Banks in 1988 to accept a new job as a Mortgage Loan Officer in 1988. I was ready for a change after being with a company for over 20 years in Rocky Mount, NC that required a lot of traveling. It was the best thing I ever did. I met my husband, Skip Jones, and got married for the first time at 45 years old!
Where is your favorite vacation spot? I love to travel! Skip and I have been fortunate to travel to many places, but, I think my favorite place is Tortola and the surrounding islands in the British Virgin Islands.
