Mike Hardwick, founder and president of Churchill Mortgage uses the phrase “Keep Chopping Wood” a lot around the office. It’s a phrase that was used by former head coach and NFL player Jack Del Rio while he was coaching the Jacksonville Jaguars. This saying became a team mantra and has now become a Churchill mantra too. But what does “Keep Chopping Wood” mean to us at Churchill? It’s all about persistently (and consistently) working toward a common goal.
As an employee-owned company, this phrase provides motivation and focus to everyone within the Churchill ecosystem. We all know that whatever is going on in the market, we’re here to help and guide our customers get a mortgage that gives more clarity about available options, and more peace knowing how much money can be saved in the long run.
“It’s amazing what can be done when you surround yourself with good, decent, hardworking, loving, caring, giving people who just go to work every day and over the years ‘Keep Chopping Wood!’ Truly great things can happen when people care for each other. I appreciate everyone at Churchill as we continue to genuinely help all of our customers and partners with their dreams,” said Mike Hardwick.
Focusing on getting people in and out of the door as quickly as possible doesn’t work for us. The Churchill culture is about building relationships (both with employees as well as with our clients and partners). We believe, it’s important to take the time to build long-term relationships that result in referrals and repeat customers.
Yes, we realize these relationships take time and require a significant investment on our part, but we wouldn’t have it any other way! Churchill takes pride in that we’re different from other mortgage companies. We dig deep to not only understand your present situation but also your long-term needs.
