Month 00, 2008: – National lender First Horizon recently announced that the sales staff of local lender Key Mortgage has joined the First Horizon family.  Three Key Mortgage loan experts – Joel Botker, Carolyn Shewfelt and Lori Payton – bring a total of 40 years of experience to their new office base.

Founded in 1996, Key Mortgage has built a reputation on excellence within the local community, funding more than $33 million in mortgage loans annually. Joel, Lori and Carolyn are all looking forward to the advantages of being part of a nationally-known lending team.

National lender First Horizon’s loan inventory features a wide range of fixed-rate and adjustable-rate mortgages, plus FHA and VA loans. Specialized products include One-Time Close, a combined new construction and permanent loan, and loans for first-time buyers.

            In addition, First Horizon processes, underwrites and closes their loans in-house. This enables staff to deliver faster, more accurate decisions than many third-party lenders. And since First Horizon is part of First Horizon National Corporation – a member of the FORTUNE and S&P 500, with business roots that go back over 140 years – borrowers, brokers and real estate professionals can be confident of working with a lender with proven strength and stability.

“The expertise of the Key Mortgage team will be a tremendous asset for First Horizon in the Northern Idaho and Washington markets,” said Chris Altig, First Horizon’s Regional Vice-President.  “They share our commitment to building valuable relationships with their customers and have a proven track record of this commitment.”

To contact First Horizon’s Couer d’Alene office, call (208) 665-9755.

Chris Parker and Brian Mahoney Joins MetLife Home Loans

Danvers, MA — Month 00, 2009 — Local home loan professionals Chris Parker and Brian Mahoney recently opened the Danvers mortgage office of MetLife Home Loans, a division of MetLife Bank and one of the nation’s top loan originators and servicers*.

Prior to joining MetLife Home Loans, Chris and Brian were co-owners of Heritage Home Loans, an independent brokerage offering a full array of home loan, refinancing and reverse mortgage products. They share almost 30 years of experience in the New England home financing industry. 

When Chris and Brian decided to accept an offer to align themselves with MetLife Home Loans, they retained their existing offices at 11 Maple Street in Danvers, along with the majority of their support staff.

“We wanted to do what was best for our borrowers, and this offer was the key,” said Brian Mahoney. “Now, as representatives of a direct originator, we can offer them much more, including streamlined processing and underwriting. And our customers really appreciate the peace of mind that comes with working with a name they already know and trust.”

In their new capacity as Mortgage Consultants, Chris and Brian offer a wide range of loans to customers. These include fixed-rate, adjustable-rate, government-insured FHA and VA loans, and Jumbo financing.
