Vicki Bonardi has a broad mortgage background in sales, operations and compliance.

“I remember the first family that literally cried and kissed me because they got their first house…”
“I started at Household Finance Corporation (HFC) in the Detroit area, and I remember the first family that literally cried and kissed me because they got their first house,” Bonardi said. “They were going to have a child, and they wanted to have a home and a backyard. It’s about helping people get into their first home and meet their goals of homeownership. That’s why this is my career and why I love it. Thirty years ago, I was a loan officer helping people and now I’m bringing that forward in everything I do today. I’m excited to come to Alterra – I feel like I’m coming back home to my roots by going back to helping the underserved.”
