About Kim Short, Branch Manager: With over 22 years of Mortgage Industry experience, the one thing I know for certain, it is ever-changing. Starting at an entry level position in the 1990’s and working my way through many roles of the loan process has given me a much better and deeper understanding of the industry.  I feel fortunate to be working with a Company who knows the importance of being up to date on technology and loan programs but keeping the personal touch. 

My family and I love the Grand Valley and what it has to offer (hiking, biking, ATV-ing, local events). My husband and I are native to the area and have been blessed with two children a Son-in-law and a Grand Daughter.   We are fortunate to live in such a beautiful place!

About Stephanie Sauvage, Branch Manager: Thanks for reading my bio!  I’m a Loan Officer/Branch Manager for New American Funding in Grand Junction, Colorado.  I’ve been told that I look young (and I like to believe it), but I’ve already put 19 years into my career in the finance industry, with 14 years solely in mortgage lending.  Even with all that experience, I would say that my greatest assets are my “can-do” attitude, ability for research, and tenacity to exhaust all possibilities.   

I have lived in Grand Junction for most of my life and feel incredibly happy, lucky, and blessed to be an American and a Coloradoan and provide that opportunity to my 2 kids.  I love hiking and have a goal to hike all of the 14ers.
