White Lake, MI. (October 5, 2018)–Lake Michigan Credit Union (LMCU) is pleased to announce the hiring of Rose Balhorn as Mortgage Loan Officer for its White Lake, Michigan home mortgage office. She reports directly to LMCU’s Vice President of Regional Mortgage Production, Jason Ryba, and will be serving the North Oakland County, Genesee and Lapeer County areas.

Her specialties include new construction and renovation loans, and she’s a member of the North Oakland County Board of Realtors.

Ryba is excited to have Balhorn join his team, “Rose has a tremendous amount of experience in the mortgage industry. She’s always looking out for the best interests of the consumer, which aligns perfectly with Lake Michigan Credit Union’s culture.”

Balhorn said, “I chose LMCU because of their dedication to growing in Michigan. I’m especially excited to help first time homebuyers get the best mortgage for their needs. If I could describe myself in one word, it would be dedicated.”

When she’s not in the office, Rose and her husband own and operate a horse-drawn carriage service for weddings, parades, and other community events—including chauffeuring the Governor to the state’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony.
