DeeDee Kalny
CMG Financial
Branch Manager
I have been in the mortgage business for over 14 years. During that time, I have worked as both a loan officer and a producing branch and regional manager. While most of my business is purchase business, I am always ready to help a client review their financial position to see if a refinance may help them reach their goals. My love and passion for helping people with one of the largest decisions and purchases that they will likely ever make, helps me develop clients for life.
Marva McCarty
Marva McCarty - Re/Max Real Estate Group
Helping my clients/friends take the next step in their life is my mission in life. As a real estate professional I love to work with home buyers and sellers who are ready to buy their first house, or their "forever" house, or sell a home that is no-longer working for their current needs and lifestyle so they can move on.  Although I do specialize in working with seniors and empty nesters, I love helping all clients at important junctures in their lives--  finding the home that works for them and their desired life style. My style is to work in a partnership with my clients. My goal is to explain the process, to give clients peace of mind that everything is being handled professionally, and to make their move as stress free and easy as possible.  For a "Simply Marva-lous Move" call Marva.

Matthew Winfrey
Customer Check
I am the Co-Founder and CEO of Customer Check LLC.  We own and operate which is a unique website that allows business owners to anonymously share their experiences dealing with customers.  Just as our customers can search for online reviews to make informed decisions, allows our members to make informed decisions based on submitted reviews by other local vendors. I have had a passion for helping small business owners avoid losing money or their reputation because they had a negative customer experience. On a personal note - I enjoy mountain bike riding, golf, bass guitar, and I believe most great movies were created in the 80's and 90's. If you are a business owner who wants to take the guesswork out of selecting new customers, join the network at and start avoiding negative customer experiences.
