Category: Arvest News

Congratulations to mortgage lender Krista Reimer, who recently received the Affiliate of the Year award at the Stillwater Board of REALTORS® (SBOR) annual banquet.

Reimer was selected from a pool of candidates that were submitted by nominators from outside their own companies. According to the SBOR, candidates must “exhibit a high level of professionalism and cooperation that is essential between their industry and our REALTOR® members.”

Reimer has worked in the mortgage lending industry for 18 years, including the last four in Stillwater. Her commitment to providing excellent customer service and attention to detail throughout the loan process are the driving forces behind her business.

Her experience with all types of products – and commitment to staying informed on market trends – helps Reimer give each customer the best solution for their financial situation. Additionally, being an active part of the community has allowed Reimer to develop relationships with many real estate professionals. These relationships foster a team atmosphere that results in the best possible outcomes for her clients.

Reimer earned a degree in business education – with a minor in business administration – at Southeastern Oklahoma State University. In her spare time, she most enjoys spending time with family, whether that’s relaxing with her husband in the backyard or entertaining their grandchildren.

Congrats, Krista!
