Mary Ansley Southerland
W.D. Little Leadership
W.D. Little Mortgage is led by Mary Ansley Southerland. Mary Ansley has spent her lifetime working in the mortgage business. Since age 16 and claiming to be pretty “old” now…that is a treasure trove of experience which benefits all our clients.
What started as a summer intern position with her family business evolved into learning every aspect of the business. Most importantly, she worked as a loan processor and the company’s own underwriter with delegated approval authority from many lenders. It is that highly detailed experience and knowledge that has made MA one of the most respected and highest production Loan Originators in our market place.
Mary Ansley is also passionate about support for our community. She has served on the boards of dozens of local charities and philanthropic organizations and has been awarded several Volunteer of the Year Awards. Her involvement through the years includes WellStar Hospice Advisory, Marietta Educational Garden Center, Cobb Landmarks & Historical Society, American Heart Association, March of Dimes and Habitat for Humanity. Currently, she sits on the board of the Marietta Schools Foundation and serves as President of The Rotary Club of Marietta- Cobb County’s oldest civic club.
Proudly born and raised in downtown Marietta, Mary Ansley is an avid supporter of all things Marietta and Marietta Schools and she and her husband, James, make Marietta their home today. They are happily settling into empty nestdom as their oldest child, Rosser, has now joined the team at W.D. Little Mortgage and the ranks of homeownership. Daughter, Georgia, will soon graduate from Mercer University and start a career in nursing.
Mary Ansley loves her family, her community and her work at W. D. Little Mortgage.
