Laura Leonhard
Branch Manager / Loan Originator

Having been in the mortgage lending industry since 2000, I pride myself in being very open and down-to-earth with my clients, giving them every available option so they are able to make an educated decision regarding home financing. I feel very fortunate to be able to offer to my clients, the opportunity to make their home ownership dreams a reality.

I was awarded the very prestigious award in 2015 as being named one of the Elite Women in the Mortgage Industry by The Mortgage Professional America. Additionally, I was featured in Top Agent Magazine. In 2014, I was honored as one of The Mortgage Professional America’s Hot 100 list for Movers and Shakers in the Mortgage Industry. I am also the recipient of the 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2012 top five in the nation for volume, USDA Lender by Scotsman Guide.

My husband and I own a home in the area, with both of my kids just completing their schooling and beginning their career, here, with me at Mortgage Experts Team. On most weekends, my family and I can be found traveling around the State with our John Deere pulling tractor named “All Buck’d Up”.

Clients that come to my office are warmly greeted and enjoy our down to earth attitude, and no non-sense way of doing financing. We strive to be #1 in every way possible, stop by and see for yourself.

Jordan Leonhard
Loan Originator

I started working fulltime with Mortgage Experts Team of Waterstone Mortgage right after I graduated high school.  Having been around the financing industry for much of my life, it felt like the natural choice.  About a year after working in our processing deparment, I passed the test to become a loan originator. I am excited with everything that I learn daily and enjoy helping our many clients achieve home ownership.

By nature, I have a very outgoing and loveable personality, and enjoy making people happy. I own a home in Marshfield, where I live with my better half, Jessica.  I have two cats and two Siberian Huskies that keep me entertained when I am home.

My passion is going fast. I own a Dodge diesel truck that I have had the engine built up, and I have lots of fun with my “toy”. During the summer months, I can be found with my family, going all over the State of Wisconsin to competition tractor pulling events with our Limited Pro Stock tractor, a John Deere named “All Buck’d Up”. I am the proud driver of this machine, and it is my other pride and joy.

I look forward to working with each and every client that comes to our office, making every attempt to assist in making the home ownership dream a reality.

Although I started the Waterstone Mortgage team in 2017 I have many years of sales experience and I pride myself on customer service.

I have lived in the La Crosse area with my husband and my son for nearly 20 years. I love the landscape, the wildlife and all the seasons. In the summertime my husband and I like to spend our weekends in the Northwood’s on the Chetek chain of lakes. Fishing, boating and campfires are our way of relaxing with our friends.

It’s so rewarding to see and feel the excitement from my clients when I’m helping them through the process of purchasing their home. I look forward to helping you and sharing your excitement on your journey to home ownership.

Debbie Schoenfuss
Processor III

My career in the real estate industry started in 1992 when I went to work for a local attorney as a legal assistant. From there, I became a Mortgage Processor and now I am a Senior Mortgage Processor with Mortgage Experts Team of Waterstone Mortgage.

During my many years of experience, I have had multiple responsibilities in the lending industry to include loan processing, title insurance and loan closings.

My husband and I love to follow our two children, a daughter and a son, through their many endeavors. Our oldest is now in college and our son is a three sport athlete. Our summer months are filled with camping and during the school year you can see us at football games, wrestling and track meets thru-out Central Wisconsin. All of this has left us with fond family memories of wins, losses, great plays, big accomplishments and those occasional embarrassing moments too.

When you are looking for financing, you will appreciate my many years of experience and helpfulness to aid you in a quick, courteous and professional manner.

Patricia Bogdonovich
Jr. Loan Processor

A few years ago, I was given the opportunity to join the Mortgage Experts Team as a junior processor. Our team consists of a bunch of fabulous and skilled people who are willing to help people achieve a very exciting life goal and purchase a home of their very own.

Prior to joining the Mortgage Experts Team I worked in a variety of different work fields, this by far has been the most rewarding. We are not just co-workers here, we are family.

My boyfriend and I have a daughter who keeps us entertained and on our feet, she is our pride and joy. We also have a dog and a cat who are like our children and are just as spoiled. We as a family love to cheer on the Brewers and sit around a campfire roasting marshmallows.
