Kimberly Irving took a break from the mortgage industry to spend time with her young children. It was perfect timing, because she was exhausted from competing against loan officers who participated in unethical business practices. She had always heard great things about Grandview Lending. They base their business performance on the morals and values that are identical to her personal morals and values. When Kimberly was ready to get back to work, she knew exactly where she belonged.
This life-long Hoosier attended Pike and Lawrence Township schools. After graduating high school, Kimberly received her degree in business from Indiana University. She began her career in mortgage lending over 15 years ago. She prides herself in providing borrowers of all credit grades with loans that are tailored to fit their individual financial needs.
Kimberly's clients know she does not give up! Her around-the-clock availability, open lines of communication, determination, and vast knowledge of the lending process and regulations helps reduce or alleviate her clients’ stress levels and makes it easier for her to improve upon her clients’ situations.
Clients looking to purchase a new home or refinance existing homes can count on her to analyze credit, income and assets to ensure she meets their needs and investor guidelines.
In addition to being dedicated to fulfilling her clients’ needs, Kimberly is a dedicated mother, wife, sister, aunt and daughter. She will work for you as she will one of her family members.
A born and bred Hoosier, Faye Fitzgerald has been employed in the credit/finance industry since 1976.

Faye says, “Grandview Lending allows for that personal touch that the big corporations can’t or won’t supply. Every employee and client is part of the Grandview ‘family.’”

A tribute to a mentor, friend, and co-worker that we lost to cancer March 2013. Dave taught us many things at Grandview Lending but his lasting legacy was his strong work ethic and fight for life, reminding us that each day is precious. Throughout his 27 month fight with cancer, Dave missed 1 day of work despite all the cancer treatments he received. Only 4 days before his death, Dave asked to be brought into the office to participate in a lunch pitch-in we had.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dave's family during this difficult time.
He will be missed.
