Employee Spotlight: 2015 Top Producer Wes Woodruff of Angel Oak Home Loans

April 21, 2016

“I believe what we do really helps make a difference. Home values are rising and we’re seeing hot mortgage markets across Georgia, Florida, North Carolina and the nation. Everyone seems to be looking to buy a home in the next few months and years, and for a lot of people, we’re a big part of making that dream come true.”

As the #1 producer at Angel Oak Home Loans in 2015, Wes Woodruff in many ways embodies the values Angel Oak Home Loans has set. It is through his drive to provide outstanding service to all clientele that Angel Oak Home Loans has built an impressive team of highly successful licensed mortgage advisors.

Wes Woodruff joined Angel Oak Home Loans LLC in December 2011. As an Atlanta native, he grew up knowing the neighborhoods and values the city and communities held. At Angel Oak Home Loans he quickly came to excel in his duties, winning two "Sales Partner of the Month" awards. Wes was also a member of the 2013 and 2014 Leadership Council and was the recipient of the 2013-2015 Mortgage Banker Gold & Platinum Awards. He has been recognized as a Founding Member at Angel Oak Home Loans, receiving the Angel Oak Home Loans Excellence Award in 2012. He consistently ranks among the top producers in the company on a month to month basis and has originated roughly $75 million in the last 3 years.

As a Founding Member of Angel Oak Home Loans, Wes sets the example of customer service excellence across the company. He works tirelessly catering the home buying experience for first time home buyers and returning clients, crafting unique solutions to benefit each client. Woodruff takes pride in his reputation for an incredible amount of attention to the client service experience, consistently having a 98% client satisfaction rate. He helped build the firm’s sales team with only the strongest referrals, a level of distinction that has come to set apart Angel Oak amongst from other mortgage banking firms.

Wes’s reach expands far outside the Atlanta area where he lives and works. He helps ensure that the philosophy of providing innovative and customized portfolio loan programs to individuals across the country stays true. He helps guide the sales experience for Angel Oak Home Loans across the company, helping licensed mortgage advisors in Jacksonville, Orlando, Miami, Cary, and Miami. Woodruff’s collaborative approach delivers some of the quickest turn times in the industry, having once close a loan in 8 days, and he sees the closing of each mortgage loan as the beginning of a new relationship rather than a completed transaction.

Wes lives in East Cobb with his wife Lindsey and their two daughters Ella Reese who is 2 and Annie who was born this past March. He graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in Finance, specializing in Real Estate. He enjoys playing tennis, basketball, golf and doing projects around the house.

Client Testimonials:
"This is the second time I am working with Wes Woodruff and his team refinancing my mortgage...I have taken out original mortgages and refinanced many, many times throughout my life and Wes and everyone at Angel Oak Home Loans are BY FAR THE BEST group of people with whom I have ever worked with! I will absolutely refer anyone I know needing mortgage services to him."

“My experience working with Wes and Mary Ann was excellent. I honestly can't think of one thing that either of them could have done better. Their professionalism and responsiveness were impressive.”

"Wes Woodruff and Stephen Settle helped me tremendously throughout the entire process. With them, I felt confident with the loan process and in purchasing my first home. I initially felt this experience would be stressful and overwhelming, but Wes and Stephen made it simple and stress-free.”
