Menke Inducted Into Home Builders Association Hall of Fame
The Home Builders Association of the Sioux Empire recently inducted Candice Menke, mortgage loan originator at Black Hills Federal Credit Union, to their Hall of Fame. Menke has been involved with the Home Builders Association throughout her career, previously receiving the associate of the year award on local and state levels. As a Mortgage Loan Originator at BHFCU, Candice explains her job in three simple steps: First is the initial meeting to get to know the people and understand their goals; second is identifying their needs; and third is determining ways she can help them improve their lives financially.
“You know you’ve done a good job when a satisfied member shares their positive experience with others. The biggest compliment is when a member tells their friends and family to come to you for their financial needs,” she says. Congratulations to Candice on this achievement!
