Derek HainesMortgage Loan Officer 

I was born and raised in Lexington Nebraska and graduated from Lexington High School.   I attended the University of Nebraska at Kearney where I earned a Business Administration Management Emphasis degree.  During my time at UNK I worked part time at First National Bank of Kearney.   After graduation I left our area for employment in Lincoln and Omaha where I was able to obtain lending experience which lead to me being able to return to the Kearney bank as a Loan Officer.  My employment prior to accepting a position with Homestead Bank was as a real estate sales agent with CBS Real Estate of Lexington where I worked for 11 years. 

My wife Erin, is a teacher in the Lexington Public School System and has been doing so for the past 17 years.   She has her Masters in Education and is currently teaching Life Skills at the Lexington Middle School.  We have a daughter, Liah who keeps us busy with dance, gymnastics, piano lessons and more.  We spend our free time at the golf course, at the pool, or lounging around watching movies.  When the opportunity presents itself we love to spend a weekend in Omaha to take in the Zoo and other attractions.    

My past and present community activities include the Dawson County Board of Realtors (President, VP) Rotary (President, VP), First United Methodist Church (Finance Committee Chair), Chamber of Commerce and High School Football Officiating.
