Patrick Michaelson - Area Branch Manager

bio headshot

I was born and raised in Baton Rouge, LA where I live now with my wife of fourteen years, Haaga, and our three children, Knox (11), Mac (9), and Kate Collins (4). I left Baton Rouge to attend Mississippi State University where I received my degree in Business Finance. After college, I began my career in the mortgage industry starting first in Operations as a set up-coordinator and processor then quickly moved to the production side where I was a loan officer then Production Manager, and Branch Manager, and now Area Manager. Seventeen years in the business and I've held a lot of positions that give me so much insight into each role that is involved in closing a loan for our borrowers. My immediate goal as Area Manager is to make each member of my team as successful as they can be through support, teaching, and guiding when and where I can. I had some amazing mentors as I grew in this business and I strive to be like them. We have a certain culture that has been purposefully developed over the years that I keep at the forefront of my mind with every obstacle that comes our way. We are a team. We are friends. We work together to do everything we can to get people into their homes as soon as we can. We bounce ideas off each other, we problem-solve together. Our team crosses many state lines but each branch operates as extensions of a larger whole. I am proud to be a part of the Southern States Group and love watching the amazing work our team does.
