Shelby Township, MI. (October 3, 2018)–Lake Michigan Credit Union (LMCU) is pleased to announce the hiring of Crystal Austin as Mortgage Loan Originator for its Shelby Township, Michigan home mortgage office. She reports directly to LMCU’s Vice President of Regional Mortgage Production, Shawn Sirko, and will be serving the Southeast Michigan Shelby Township market.

Austin attended the Detroit College of Business in Detroit, Michigan. She comes to LMCU with more than 20 years of experience. Previous positions include Loan Origination at Great Lakes Mortgage Financial and Flagstar Bank, and Branch Manager and Loan Originator at Standard Federal Bank.

Sirko is excited to have Austin join his West Michigan team, “We couldn’t be happier to welcome Crystal to LMCU. As one of the top originators in Macomb County with 26 years of experience, Crystal will help us continue to grow throughout Southeast Michigan. Nobody cares more or works harder for their clients than she does. And it’s that kind of commitment and integrity that makes her a great ambassador for LMCU. I’m looking forward to helping Crystal build on her many years of success.”

Austin said, “I joined Lake Michigan Credit Union because of the vast array of mortgage options, including MSHDA, Conventional, VA, USDA, New Construction, and Doctor Loans. We have guaranteed low mortgage rates, low closing fees, and unsurpassed service. I’m excited to offer my clients and realtor partners the best possible products and services available.”

When she’s not in the office, you can find Austin exploring the great outdoors—hiking, biking, or kayaking.
