Leslie Price, SVP, Retail Operations, Caliber Home Loans
Leslie Price is the SVP, Retail Operations of Caliber Home Loans. She is responsible for the operational execution of the Retail Channel. She oversees the operations teams which support national production, including processing, underwriting, closing and operations support for mortgage financing. When Leslie joined Caliber Home Loans in April, 2013, she was hired as VP, National Underwriting, later promoted to SVP, National Underwriting and moved into her current position in May of this year. During her tenure, she has contributed to the success of managing the multi-disciplined underwriting department, managing fulfillment capacity and placement of daily application volume, establishing and maintaining relationships with key external producers, investors and vendors and participating in the development and execution of the corporate strategic initiatives. Her team recently funded a record breaking volume of $2.115B for the month of July, at the lowest cost to fulfill per loan. During her career, she has also held leadership positions at Bank of America, Countrywide Home Loans, and Mountain States Mortgage.
Leslie’s love for the mortgage industry comes from her passion to learn new things and find solutions. She is a huge proponent in managing that in which you have done and promoting from within. She enjoys mentoring and creating opportunities for professional and personal growth. The dream of making home ownership a reality is rewarding in itself, but the people she has met along the way has shaped her into the person she is today.
Leslie lives in Utah. She has been married to her husband for 15 years. She has 2 children, both daughters. Her oldest recently graduated from the University of Utah with 2 degrees and her youngest just entered high school. She enjoys hiking, traveling, NFL Sunday’s, Yorkshire Terrier puppies (she has 3), concerts and anything where she can spend time with her friends and family.
Leslie’s favorite holiday is the 4th of July and loves firework shows. Perhaps because it’s her birthday and she was born in a helicopter. Not many can say they were “Born in the Sky on the 4th of July”.
