ABOUT BARBARA S. HAARDT

Barbara S. Haardt is the vice president of Residential Lending with First Savings Mortgage Corp., where she is responsible for originating mortgages in the states of D.C., Virginia, Maryland, and Delaware.  Previously, while working as a branch manager with Plaza Home Mortgage, she was responsible for training loan officers and staff.  She opened Plaza’s first office on the East Coast.  She trained over 100 loan officers, many of whom own their own companies.  She also works with top realtors presenting first-time home buyer seminars as well as keeping them informed on guideline changes.  Barbara has closed over $1.5 billion in loan transactions.  She has been a top producer in all of the companies she worked for 32 years in a row.  Barbara’s goal is to create a new opportunity to help baby boomers with the high tech world that is coming fast.

Born in central Pennsylvania, Barbara originally came to work in Washington D.C. for the FBI.  After marrying, she helped her husband build his business as the largest independent dental company in the tri-state area.  She then helped close friends start an advertising business as a chief financial officer.  Before coming to First Savings, Barbara worked for several national lenders for 16 years.  She started in the financial industry after working for a friend’s mortgage company as a telemarketer in 1985 to earn some extra money.  She was the top producer and earned $3000 in one week.  She left the advertising business when she was offered a full-time position and training.  It was a tough decision as she was a single mom with two children.

Barbara is a member of The Power Players, the Mortgage Bankers Association and volunteered at the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center of Washington, D.C.  As a 15 year survivor of breast cancer, she enjoys giving back and participates in many organizations.  It is her goal to continue to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer.
