Gracie Morrow

Please tell us about yourself:  I have lived in Texas for almost 15 years. My passion is helping hardworking people build wealth by utilizing different mortgage planning and strategies. I have been happily married for 9 years, we love to travel and experience different parts of the country and the world. We might be foodies, not sure if we qualified for the cool name, we definitely love trying new restaurants everywhere we go I was in Accounting and Finance for a few years, worked for some of the Fortune 500 companies. About 10 years ago, I started my mortgage career. Mortgage Planning is most direct way to help individuals build wealth. it’s a very personal and fulfilling job.  

Brief overview of your line of work: We offer Residential Mortgage Service including Purchase, Refinance, Construction Loans. Most of our clients are in the DFW area, we are also licensed in other states. We work with First Time Homebuyers, Vacation Homeowners, Real Estate Investors, Realtors and Builders.  We’d love to connect with more Realtors, Builders, Financial Advisors, CPAs and Family Law Attorneys.

Why The Drawing Board? The Drawing Board offers everything we’re looking for when we first visited the facility. It gives a sense of community. The leadership at The Drawing Board makes us feel like we’re a part of their family, it’s not the typical business transaction, they show how much they care about their members and want to be there to support in any way they can!

A quote that you like or live by: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” 
We’d love to offer all TDB members a Complimentary Certified Mortgage Panning. I’m a Certified Mortgage Planner, there’re less than 10 Certified Mortgage Planners in the DFW area. Whether you’re curious if you’re in the position to purchase a home, or if you want someone to look at your current mortgage to see if there’s any opportunities to save on interest rate or monthly payment, we’d happy to provide our professional opinion. If we decide to work together, all TDB members will receive $250 lender credit at their closing.
