A large part of HomeBridge’s success is due to the exceptional talent we have recruited and cultivated here. We not only hire the best, we provide ample opportunities for career advancement. Senior Vice President Grace Currid is a shining example of our philosophy in action.

Grace started in the banking and financial services industry right out of high school, as the secretary to the president of a small mortgage banker. Throughout the years she persevered to work her way up through the ranks. At the time, she was one of the youngest women to ever earn a VP title from Chase Manhattan Bank (now JP Morgan Chase), who did not have a college degree.

She proudly accomplished all of this as a working mother, which wasn’t all that common in the 1980’s. Having been widowed at the age of 33, she was also a single parent during the early part of her career. “I never let my lack of formal education and/or my desire to also be a mom stand in my way of hard work and accomplishments in this industry,” noted Grace. During her career she has chaired many committees for the N.J. Mortgage Bankers Association where she was also a member of the Board of Governors. For several years, she was an instructor for the American Banker’s Association and served on many FNMA Lender Advisory Committees.

Grace joined the HomeBridge team in its Opteum Financial Services days in 2001. Currently, she is responsible for approximately 850 Associates in the HomeBridge Operations and Credit departments.

Grace’s personal vision is, “Anyone can accomplish anything they want in life.” She mentors others by example and through her leadership. Grace says, “I was brought up in a middle-class family where college was not an option for me. I raised four children while being widowed. I always had to buck the ‘glass ceiling’ when I started in this business because I was a female. I never let anything stand in my way. I believe that ultimately you are judged on your work ethic and how you treat people.”

HomeBridge is always looking for motivated, hard-working individuals with the can-do attitude. If you’re looking for a home for your talents, I’d love to speak with you! Contact me any time!
