St. Louis, MO (June 30, 2014) – Cornerstone Mortgage, Inc., a privately-held St. Louis based mortgage-banking firm, is excited and proud to announce that it has been selected as one of the Top Places to Work in the St. Louis region for three consecutive years. Cornerstone is listed as the only Top Mortgage Banker to work for on the 2012, 2013, and 2014 Top Workplaces list.

We will continue to work hard to make sure Cornerstone stays a great place to work.”

Angi Stevenson, Senior Vice President/COO, went on to say, “Our employees are an essential part of Cornerstone’s success. We sincerely appreciate all of their hard work and commitment.
