Mortgage Network Inc., an independent mortgage lender operating in the eastern U.S., announced it has opened a new branch office in Bluffton, South Carolina. The new office (NMLS #1744882) joins the company's other Southeast branches located in Hilton Head Island, Columbia, and Mt. Pleasant in South Carolina and Charlotte in North Carolina.
The Bluffton office will be managed by Brian Neumann (NMLS #174105), a 14-year veteran of the residential mortgage industry who has spent the past 12 years at Mortgage Network. A graduate of the University of South Carolina's Darla Moore School of Business, Neumann most recently served as a loan officer in the company's Hilton Head, South Carolina, office. He is licensed to do business in both South Carolina and Georgia. Neumann will be joined by senior loan officer Sam Cavanaugh, who has 12 years of experience in the mortgage and real estate industries. Cavanaugh has spent the past three years with Mortgage Network, also at the Hilton Head branch.
Based in Danvers, Massachusetts, Mortgage Network is celebrating its 30th year in business. The company has now grown to over 400 employees, with 45 branch offices licensed in 27 states. The company provides a full array of residential mortgage products, from conventional to non-conventional loans, FHA and VA loans, mortgage refinancing, to reverse mortgages and more. Mortgage Network is more focused and agile than many larger competitors, which allows the company to provide a high level of service to its customers and its business and referral partners.
"We are incredibly pleased to add Bluffton to our expanding branch network and to have Brian Neumann leading the effort," said David Crowell, southeast regional manager for Mortgage Network. "We are confident that he and his team will help borrowers throughout the area better understand their home financing options, whether they are buying a home or refinancing one."
"Home prices in the area have been rising modestly, and with mortgage rates still very affordable, this is a great opportunity to buy a home," Neumann said. "We have mortgage loan financing options to suit just about any need. My team and I look forward to extending Mortgage Network's products and world-class customer service to our neighbors throughout South Carolina and Georgia."
