As an 18 year veteran of the banking industry, Doug Beard understands the potential a loan has for changing a life. Doug witnessed this firsthand with his own parents, who completely transformed their financial situation with a Home Equity Loan. Thanks to the stored up equity in their home Doug’s parents wiped out their entire debt and were able to start enjoying a brand new lifestyle.
This experience, and others like it, taught Doug an often overlooked truth about mortgage lending: loans are tangible in their ability to create opportunity and open the door to new experiences. Being able to build a relationship with a family and guide them through a life-changing event is what has made Doug’s career in lending so deeply fulfilling.
Applying for a loan is an inevitable part of buying a home, and Doug’s focus on keeping this process comfortable is what brought him to Service First. As a local lender, Service First offers Doug the speed and open communication he needs to keep his clients up to date and problem free.
Doug has been married for 15 years and has four children (Reagan, Ryan, Gavin, and Noa) with his wife, Jodi. They both live and work in Aledo, a place they choose for its community-oriented lifestyle with a focus on family. When the Beards aren’t keeping busy with youth sports, you can find them working with HOPE FORT WORTH Orphan Care Ministry.
