New American Funding is excited to announce the expansion of their St. Louis, MO branch with nine new Loan Officers and a second location in Edwardsville, IL. In the late summer of 2014 Hamid Hamrah, Steve Flowers and Robert Schmersahl, previously at USA Mortgage, made the switch to New American Funding opening the company’s second St. Louis branch last August. Area Manager for the St. Louis Area, Julie Green, who started the first St. Louis branch in June of last year, was thrilled to add Hamrah and his team to the New American Funding family in the Midwest. Green can’t wait to see what his branches are able to achieve in 2015 after having already experienced so much growth. “We all share a common core value of providing the very best in customer service to our valued clients, and felt that in order to be able to do that in an ever-changing mortgage environment, we needed to position ourselves with a company who not only sells direct to Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Ginnie Mae, but one who also services their own loans. Working in a market that is primarily led by mortgage companies who sell their servicing adds numerous additional overlays for the consumer. We think there is a better way, and we feel New American Funding has the programs and support to be able to offer the St Louis metropolitan area consumer a more flexible option without all of the hassle!” Hamrah also adds, “We are so excited to not only be assembled as a team, but also to be growing so rapidly already! We currently have five licensed branches in the area! These include locations on Olive Blvd in Creve Coeur, in Westport Plaza, in Edwardsville, IL, Swansea, IL, and in Nixa MO, just outside of the Springfield MO market! Our team right now is on pace to lend over $250 Million dollars in 2015 without any additional growth. But we have no plans to stop here! We are looking to continue our growth and ability to offer home loans to more and more of the St Louis metropolitan communities we serve.” The expanded St. Louis team now consists of Area Sales Managers Hamid Hamrah and Julie Green, Area Production Manager Robert Schmershal, Branch Manager Steve Flowers, Sales Manager Jeff Berger and Russ Miller, and Loan Officers Richard Heath, Sheri Ryan, Janet Sciuto, Brandon Smith, Mark Becker, Dennis Saurewein, Tanner Hurrelbrink, Greg Griffin, Stephen Baack, James Denton, Joe Wallace, Todd Grant and Branson Burris.
