Bob DuaneBranch Manager
Hi! I am Bob Duane and I run the MiMutual Mortgage office in Grapevine, TX. I have seen many things change in the mortgage business over the years, and we have survived and thrived in this exciting market. We are thrilled in helping people realize their dream when they buy a new home.
I began my career in the food distribution business when I started part time while I was a student at Oklahoma State University. My accounts included the fraternities and sororities on campus. I met my beautiful wife Norma when one of the sororities’ house-mothers set us up on a blind date. I was blessed to move up the ranks from sales representative in Stillwater, OK, all the way to Division President of US Foods Dallas, TX. I retired from food service in 1999.
In 2000 I made an investment in a technology company that supported the mortgage industry. This company did very well for several years, but the post-9/11 refinance boom lost the company many of its customers. So we switched gears and started a mortgage company using the technology that we had developed. I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit, have had great success in putting teams together, and I enjoy being challenged in business.
Today we` truly have a family run organization with my oldest son Paul, my wife Norma, and my daughter-in-law Elizabeth all helping in the operation. Our other incredible team members are like family as well.
Norma and I enjoy traveling and participating in all the activities at our church. We are committed to running a business that puts our Faith and other people first.
