Join our team.
Love our culture.

What is that special sauce that you look for in a team? Is it size? Is it experience? Is it profitability? Our special sauce is our small firm feel, backed by one of the largest lenders in the industry.

We pride ourselves on a unique culture built of a highly seasoned Sales and Operations team. The head of our pack, Brett Dillenberg, started Platinum Capital back in 1993. He successfully grew the company for over 14 years before deciding to combine forces with RPM Mortgage to provide his team stability in an unstable time following the mortgage meltdown. The team was with RPM Mortgage for another 14 years when, again, it was in the best interest of the team, for stability and growth, to join forces with a bigger team, and we became CrossCountry Mortgage in April of 2022.

Executive Vice President

“When I walked into my interview with Brett 12 years ago, the giant words on the lobby wall said ‘Can Do Will Do’ and I knew I had found my team and my forever work home.”

For over 25 years, Sarena has worked in just about every role there is in the mortgage industry. She’s our utility player. Not only does she help to navigate product, pricing, marketing, and operations for all of the Sales and Ops teams, but she also originates her own book of business, so she’s on the front lines with the rest of the Sales and Ops team. Helping others to succeed lights her fire and drives her to always learn more and do more. She prides herself on her problem-solving abilities and making herself available early, late, and on the weekends. Just because the office is closed, doesn’t mean that business stops.

Regional Operations Manager

“When I dipped my toes into the mortgage industry 20 years ago, I had to learn from the ground up.”

Jennifer got her start in mortgage on The Dillenberg Team in the early 2000s as a marketing assistant/part-time. She very quickly moved into a full-time role and up the ranks only to find herself overseeing the day-to-day branch operations and IT. Over the years, her role has grown, and she is now our Regional Administrative Manager, which oversees the day-to-day regional and branch operations. Her role provides non-loan-related support to the staff and helps everyone exceed their goals. From P&Ls and spreadsheets to staffing and facilities, Jennifer is our safety net.
