New American Funding, a leader in the mortgage industry, will celebrate the opening of its Columbia, SC branch with a Spring Fling Open House. Along with the Columbia Chamber of Commerce, the branch will mark the occasion with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday, March 21, at 6:00 PM EST.
The full-service location, which is on 1320 Main St. Suite 350, will provide the community with a complete spectrum of purchase and refinance loan products. “With all of New American Funding’s niche programs, we make mortgages affordable and we grow neighborhoods. We’re a one-stop shop that finds the best option for our customer,” said Wonida Welch (NMLS #652830). “Our goal is to make homeownership a dream come true.”
Welch, who will lead the market expansion as Branch Manager, is a long-time resident of the area. She brings more than 25 years of mortgage experience to the community and was recently named to the company’s President’s Council for 2017 due to her high production levels.
She’s joined by a team of top-producing Loan Officers including Craig Johnson (NMLS #1017610) and Chris Marr (NMLS #212152), who are also both on President’s Council. Johnson has received additional recognition as one of the company’s elite Loan Originators in its Top Gun program.
“We’re excited about expanding New American Funding’s footprint across the region,” said Welch. “We have great tools for originators. We keep our agents top of mind. We create a win-win for everyone.”
The branch will provide the same industry-leading close times, award-winning services, and high-level customer support that’s a hallmark throughout all New American Funding locations. “We’re honored to serve the Columbia market,” said Kelly Allison, Southeast Divisional VP. “We look forward to supporting homebuyers, real estate agents, and builders to enhance the growth and prosperity of the region.”
