Welcome to my website

When it comes to mortgages for a home purchase or refinance, people want a process that is simplified and has their financial goals in mind, but they also want their Mortgage Loan Officer to treat them personally with care, understanding, professionalism, and empathy. Lauree Leyland with Volunteer Mortgage Inc. gets that. 


A self-admitted “people person”, Lauree has never met a stranger and loves helping her family, her community, and her clients.  “I love that I can work in an industry that many people find challenging and stressful, and have made it an outlet to make a difference in people’s lives and in the lives of their family and community as well.  I have always been service oriented, whether it was on the mission field in the Cumberland Mountains, in Guatemala after the earthquakes or as a university administrator working one-on-one with students for 16 years or with a few of the Tennessee Titans by helping them organize and host their individual charities and events, the most rewarding part of any job has been impacting lives for the better.  My career as a mortgage professional is another extension of that premier life goal. I am passionate about doing more than just “the job”. I am passionate about what improves the well being and financial future of my clients, and I am passionate about making my clients feel that when the process is done, I am not only their loan officer but a friend.”                          

Lauree not only got us through our first time home buying process but she also did our refinance a few years later. She is extremely knowledgeable and up to date with all the rules and exceptions. She works hard to get things done as quickly as possible and keeps you informed every step of the way which helps to take the stress levels down on the clients end. Lauree also treats her clients like family and thats another reason we used her services again for our refinance. She's involved in every step of the way. We couldn't have asked for a better person to help us with both of our processes, buying and refinance. We will also choose her for any of our future needs.

I can't say enough about how pleased we are to have had Lauree Leyland as our trusted loan officer. Lauree is so knowledgeable, caring and very professional. The thing that we admire most about her is the fact that she is so motivated and determined to make sure that her customers are taken care of in the most excellent way possible. It is so good to have the peace and confidence in knowing that we have someone who is not just trying to get us into a loan but was making sure that we are doing what is best for our lives. Her work ethic is superb and she has such a kind and considerate heart. I highly recommend her to anyone that's in need of a loan officer. I will send everyone I know her way.

I have been in real estate as an investor, a Realtor, and as a title agent for over 20 years. I have worked with Lauree on over a hundred deals. Not only does she know her business and have familiarity with dozens of different products, but she approaches each and every deal as an opportunity to build a relationship with her clients. She’s not just in this to make a buck, she’s in this to help people. Working at a title company, I know dozens of loan officers, and Lauree is the loan officer I trusted for financing when I bought my house.

It is a pleasure doing business with Lauree Leyland. Volunteer Mortgage has been a client of mine for the past 6 years and Lauree and I have enjoyed a close business relationship for 3+ years. As the top loan originator, she’s tenacious and aggressive but kind and caring at the same time, treating her borrower’s like family. Even during stressful times, Lauree always remains even keel to take care of what matters most, which is to fulfill the expectations of her client. I’ve been in the mortgage business for 20+ years and seen people come and go. This is an industry driven by strong relationships, which is why Lauree is so successful. I’m a firm believer that if you treat people with dignity, respect and kindness without expecting anything in return, you will see a return two fold. Put simply, Lauree just gets it. I can confidently say that if you have an opportunity to work with her, rest assured you will not be disappointed.

I have worked with Lauree for several years. She has handled my personal real estate transactions, as well as those of my clients. I have also referred her to the other agents within my firm. Lauree truly cares about her clients and will go above and beyond to make sure a transaction works and goes as smoothly as possible. I am grateful for every opportunity I have to work with Lauree, and I am honored to also call her my friend.

It is always a pleasure for me and my buyer clients to work with Lauree. She has tremendous follow up skills and the broad knowledge to handle any kind of loan from traditional homes, to jumbo loans and even the occasional manufactured home when the need arises. Lauree has empathy to put herself in the client’s shoes and understands the importance of true customer service. She stays calm when all around her are not and always keeps her client’s interests first.
