Sandra Hutchinson’s job as a foreclosure processor may involve a lot of paperwork, but it’s the people she works with that makes it all worthwhile.
Hutchinson joined Codilis, Moody & Circelli nearly four years ago. She previously worked for Wells Fargo’s foreclosure department until the bank closed its office in the Milwaukee area. She is a graduate of Moraine Park Technical College, where she earned degrees in web design and computer technical support.
Codilis, Moody & Circelli is part of a family of Codilis firms. The original firm was founded in 1977 in Illinois and since then has expanded to Indiana, Missouri and Texas. Today, the firm employs more than 150 people.
Hutchinson’s current role with the company involves scheduling sheriff’s sales with local offices and drafting documents related to those sales. Hutchinson is also responsible for reaching out to local newspapers to make sure notice of sales are published. Once the sales are completed, Hutchinson drafts the Deeds and Reports of Sale and then sends those documents to sheriff’s offices to be signed.
“Our firm is really pleased that Sandy is being recognized (as an Unsung Hero),” said Shawn Hillmann, managing attorney for Codilis, Moody & Circelli of Wisconsin. “She’s a steady hand in the office — never too high, never too low.
“Sandy is a wonderful human being, and this recognition is well deserved. We’re very blessed to have employees like her as part of the Codilis family.”
Asked what she likes most about her job, Hutchinson replied: “Definitely all the people I work with in the office and who I interact with at the newspapers and sheriff’s offices throughout the state.”
Some of the biggest challenges in her job include getting accurate information and good communication from clients.
Outside of work, Hutchinson enjoys spending time with family — especially her grandsons — reading and cheering on the Packers.
