Gershman Mortgage is an essential business and will remain open and available for employees, borrowers, referral partners, etc. during “stay-at-home” orders currently issued for several states including Missouri and Illinois. We ask that if you are in the office, you comply with social-distancing rules of staying six feet apart at all times. Please ask this of your borrowers, guests, and everyone who comes inside any of our branches. The Corporate office in Chesterfield implemented the sanitizing of phones, keyboards, computer screens, mouses, and flat surfaces multiple times per week. Please continue all efforts in keeping our branches as clean as possible. We want to reiterate that we will not stop closing loans on time and serving our borrowers and each other with excellent customer service. We can and will get through all of this together.  


IT Support has created some how-to guides to help assist with working remotely.  These guides can help with forwarding your office phone to your cell phone, connect to the network via VPN, install a printer, and how to troubleshoot Wi-Fi issues while connecting to VPN.  We want to ensure you have the equipment you need to be successful so if you choose to work from home, please assess what you can take home to expedite your at-home set-up. If you need something to do your job better remotely, please contact and CC your Manager.
