Our Culture What makes USA Mortgage different? Work Hard

We don’t hire employees, we hire owners. What does that mean? It means we strive to make sure every voice, every idea is heard and cultivated to create a dynamic, ever-evolving culture. Our workforce is empowered to bring their creativity and entrepreneurial spirit to the table. It also means that when we’re financially successful, our employee-owners profit. We’re also committed to hiring the best—as evidenced by our rapid growth. OUR GROWTH $1B $4B + 2018 2020

Play Hard

What’s life without a little fun? Whether it’s a social outing, team-building event, USA Mortgage athletics, or a giveaway, we try our hardest to show our co-owners how much we value them.


Share Hard

That makes working here very unique. At USA Mortgage, you don’t have co-workers, you have co-owners, and they have a vested interest in your success and work tirelessly to support your eorts. ESOPs are similar to a profit sharing plan, except it is designed to invest primarily in company stock.

Give Hard

DAS Gives is an employee-driven program that supports charities near and dear to our employees’ hearts. Since the program’s inception in 2018, our employees have volunteered hundreds of hours and helped to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for dozens of local charities through fundraising and donations.

Reward Hard

Through several rewards-initiatives, top performing employee-owners can win cash prizes, all-expense paid getaways, and more.


TECHNOLOGY COMPETITION Each month, 10 loan ocers will get their marketing and technology fees paid for. OTHER COMPETITIONS Loan ocers compete in other themed competitions throughout the year to win cash or other prizes!

Top-performing loan ocers qualify for our exclusive Diamond and Platinum sales clubs. This comes with an all-expenses-paid getaway to a surprise luxury resort location for you and a guest!

Questions? Our employee-owners have answers!

“[It] really has to do with the culture because many businesses can say that it’s their culture, but DAS really lives it.”

“How we treat our client. How we work with our referral partners, our real estate agents, and we make them part of our business.” -Michelle Leesmann Branch Manager/Owner

-Tracey Rohlfing Branch Manager/Owner

What sets us apart?

“The back-end support. Because we know that the leadership is always looking for the next product. They’re always looking for the next widget when it comes to technology, when it comes to marketing. We don’t have to worry about that. That’s one of the advantages to being with DAS, we’re not following, we’re actually setting the bar....that’s what separates us from the majority of our competition because we are setting the bar for them to follow us.” -Je Pfitzer Branch Manager/Owner

How does corporate support you?

“The support that corporate provides us is second-to-none. I pinch myself every day for how lucky I am and how lucky we are here to be able to have the support that we have from the corporate side of things. Again, never worked for a company that has that kind of support.” -Chris Rines Branch Manager/Owner


“We’ve found that our recruits really, really, really enjoy our marketing capabilities. They also enjoy taking a look at our technology. and the fact that we are always constantly improving it.” -Steve Strick Branch Manager/Owner

Why do your new recruits choose us?

“Well, DAS really is the full gambit of what anyone would be looking for in this industry. Aside from the wide range of products and pricing competitiveness, DAS has absolutely unmatched marketing capabilities and top level technologies and the continuation of improving those on a constant basis is also something that’s very attractive.” -Michael Gillani Branch Manager/Owner

“Recruits choose to come to the company for the opportunity. I believe they also come for how we treat them, the opportunities we give them as far as growing their business and taking it to the next level. I see a lot of recruits that stay at the same level and when they come here, work with our systems, they take that business to the next level.” -Michelle Leesmann Branch Manager/Owner

What made you join us?

“One powerful word would be autonomy. The ability to kind of control and run a business how we want to run the business, while also having the support and the leadership to have all of the technology, all of the resources, and all of the tools that we need to achieve maximum success.” -Je Pfitzer Branch Manager/Owner
