Branch Manager, Stearns Lending

“Michael sets lofty goals for himself and his team and finds ways to achieve them – proving to have done so with the numbers the team is producing.”

Michael McBride serves as the branch sales manager for Stearns Lending’s retail team in the greater Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. He has been the facilitator of growth in the Mid-Atlantic, Northern Virginia market since the day he started with Stearns Lending in May 2015, growing his market area to a total of four branches and 24 mortgage loan originators in 12 months, with more coming in the near future. 

“Mike’s success and eagerness to teach has been instrumental in the growth of his branch and satellite locations,” his nominator wrote.

 “He sets lofty goals for himself and his team and finds ways to achieve them – proving to have done so with the numbers the team is producing. Our culture is driven by the statement, ‘I Can Help You!’ It’s obvious that Mike is the first one to step in and assist his team, no matter what it is,” his nominator explained. 

Prior to joining Stearns, McBride served as branch manager for Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, where he was a President’s Club top producer from 2008 through 2015. 

Earlier in his career, he held leadership positions at Access National Mortgage and served as president of Premier Mortgage Company LLC. 

McBride began his career as a senior loan officer at George Mason Mortgage and Dominion Bancshares Mortgage.
