America Choice Mortgage

Meet You're Dream Team

Laleh V. Hanks

Founder and CEO of The America Choice Network

Forced out of the employee benefits industry in 2001 due to the 9/11 attack, I made my way into the wide, wide world of mortgage lending. Since then, I have been elbow-deep in the fast-paced mortgage and real estate market. No stranger to industry fluctuation, I professionally survived yet another market crash. The 2006 real estate crisis was a substantial setback for all involved. Thankfully, resilience is part of my DNA. Through quick and thoughtful business adjustments, I found myself landing on my feet, time and time again.  

I am thankful to be living my American Dream. I work hard and play hard. My two children and I love getting outdoors, spending time with our friends and family, and attending our home church. I seek out opportunities to connect with my community as often as possible. I have been known to host community-based events as well as attend. I am my happiest when I am able to give back. 

We all deserve the chance to see our American Dream come true. It is my aspiration to help as many as possible on the road to achieving theirs.  I have instilled this mission into the foundation of my company and the fiber of my staff. We live by our company core values! Honesty & Integrity, Knowledge & Growth, Excellence & Reputation, Legacy & Wealth, Teamwork & Efficiency. If you we do not leave you feeling empowered, we have not done our job.
