From harvesting timber to entering the mortgage business as a loan originator, later building his own brokerage and converting it to a fully functioning independent mortgage bank, President, Glenn Strong is dedicated to working hard no matter what he is doing.
A 1999 University of Arkansas graduate, Glenn worked for his family’s logging company until 2001, when he accepted a job at Centex Home Equity in Little Rock. He was quickly recognized as the top regional loan originator and promoted to operations manager.
In 2002, Glenn opened his own mortgage company in Sheridan, Arkansas, First Arkansas Financial Inc. Since this time, the company has grown significantly, with 5 offices throughout the state, as well as an Oklahoma City, OK and Joplin, MO offices. Glenn is most proud of the relationships he has had the opportunity to build over the years.
