Maria Phelps was born and raised in Montana and has a passion for seeing others be successful. Since early 2012, Maria has operated her own Marketing Agency, in the Flathead Valley. But, something was missing. She loved working with all the small businesses in the area but the way her company was structured, she didn’t get to spend a lot of time with individual clients.
Summer of 2015, Maria was offered an opportunity to showcase her marketing skills, management experience and customer service when Dave (CEO/Broker at Black Diamond Mortgage), gave her the door to something new.
“At first, I was not sure I wanted to step out of my comfort zone, but quickly realized that the ability to focus on one industry, and have more contact with clients, gave me the sense that it was the right direction to go.”
Maria quickly fell in love with the technical aspects of the Mortgage Industry and the opportunity to see people ‘smile’ when they bought a new home.
“We purchased a new home in March of 2015 though Black Diamond Mortgage and the experience was phenomenal. I knew I was going to be working for a company that truly cares about their clients and goes above and beyond to help out the best they can. My first-hand experience with BDMC, made me more excited to help others buy their dream home.”
Maria is the Operations Manager for Black Diamond Mortgage. Her role is assisting the CEO with Marketing tasks, Policies and overall effectiveness of the company. She also assists with Loan Processing and works with the staff and Loan Officers in all aspects of the loan process. Maria is a licensed Loan Originator as of January 2016 and looks forward to helping others achieve their dream of owning a home.

Buying a home can be either one of the best or worst decisions you ever make and when you decide to give it a try, it is a thought-provoking process. A process that some people may have a hard time understanding. Last year, we bought a home. When you have 2 eager kids, it is […]
