Mar 19, 2010

Embrace Home Loans, a direct lender for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, approved by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and an issuer for Ginnie Mae, has opened a new branch in Fairfax, Va. The branch is located at 9990 Fairfax Boulevard and is managed by local mortgage professional, Gil Lunsford. Lunsford has 26 years of industry experience and leads a team of highly talented professionals with extensive knowledge of mortgage originating. “We’re very excited to join Embrace Home Loans,” said Lunsford. “The mortgage origination business has drastically changed; therefore, we must change, too. Embrace Home Loans’ technology is superior to any other, and by combining our vast experience with their excellence, we are confident we will provide even better service to the Fairfax community. Like Embrace Home Loans, we maintain high ethical standards in originating and take pride that we ensure our clients’ complete understanding. We look forward to continuing to work under those same standards with a company much like ourselves.” Embrace Home Loans is a privately-owned company and is rapidly expanding its operations in the consolidated market. With its newest branch, the lender can now offer the Fairfax community conventional, FHA and VA loan products. Embrace has been recognized as one of the “Best Medium Companies to Work for in America,” as well as one of the “INC 5,000 Fastest Growing Private Companies in America.” “What sets the Fairfax branch apart from some others is their determination to lend under high ethical standards,” said Dennis Hardiman, chief executive officer and founder of Embrace Home Loans. “To remain successful long term, lenders must operate in the interest of their clients. Gil has a proven track record of doing so, which is why he and his team have been successful for so many years. We’re very eager to work with this team and look forward to serving the Fairfax area."
