Dawn Stenberg Named a Minnesota Housing Top Producing Mortgage Loan Officer

News Community | 05.16.2023
Winona, Minn. – Dawn Stenberg, Mortgage Lender, was named a Top Producer by Minnesota Housing for her homeownership program loan production volume during 2022.
“Being a mortgage lender is incredibly rewarding for me, especially during this past year,” shared Stenberg. “As homebuyers faced unique challenges with low housing inventory and a changing interest rate environment, I was so honored every time a client trusted me to educate them on the best financing options available. Nothing is better than those smiles on closing day, especially if it took a while to find that perfect home.”
Housing is a foundation for success, and Minnesota Housing Top Producers, like Stenberg, are committed to helping homebuyers build equity and wealth through successful homeownership.
“Our values really align with Minnesota Housing’s commitment and we at Merchants don’t take our role lightly,” explained Andrew Guzzo, Chief Banking Officer & President-Winona. “Being a partner in fulfilling homeownership dreams starts by educating our clients on all the options available to them – and if they’re not in a position to buy now, helping them understand what they may need to work on to get there.”
Minnesota Housing supports and strengthens homeownership by working with local loan officers like Stenberg to provide affordable homebuyer loans. 
“We applaud these Top Producing Loan Officers, like Stenberg, for their successful efforts to help a record number of Minnesota families realize the dream of home ownership,” said Minnesota Housing Commissioner Jennifer Leimaile Ho.
