Salisbury Bank has announced that Spring Burke-its vice president, mortgage advisor-has been named a Five Star Mortgage Professional in 2018 and will be featured in the March issue of Connecticut Magazine.
To receive the Five Star Mortgage Professional award, a mortgage professional must satisfy five objective eligibility and evaluation criteria. The award process is conducted annually in each market and Burke has received the award for the fifth consecutive year.
Burke has been in the banking industry since she was 15, when she was part of a work-study program for school.
