About Us

Hal Cherry founded Statewide Funding in Park City, UT in 1990 to meet the lending needs of the growing local real-estate market.

Prior to starting Statewide, Hal was Senior Vice President of Ogden First Federal Savings and Loan, and had responsibility for all mortgage lending activity.  Having served many years in a “corporate” setting, Hal felt the need to provide  a more personal, face-to-face relationship between mortgage broker and borrower.

After several successful years in  Park City, Statewide expanded to an additional office in St. George to meet the needs of the growing southern Utah real-estate market.

Having grown up Ephraim, Hal was aware of the need for Sanpete County residents to have access to honest, affordable lending.  Together with his son Mike,  they opened the Ephraim office on March 1, 2000.  Through Mike’s effort, business continued to grow.  When Mike’s brother Rob completed his college degree, he joined Mike at the Ephraim office.  Together, the two have grown Statewide Funding into what it is today.
