Pamela S. Morris, a veteran mortgage banker with more than 20 years experience in residential home lending, has joined Colonial National Mortgage as branch manager. In her new position, Morris will be responsible for opening the company's newest branch in Lakeway, Texas along with recruiting loan officers and generating mortgage loans for the operation. The Lakeway branch will serve as a satellite to Colonial National's high-producing South Austin, Texas branch, managed by Lea Holubec. Morris comes to Colonial National Mortgage from Wells Fargo Home Mortgage in Austin, Texas where she was branch manager responsible for 10 loan officers closing approximately $200 million in loans in 2010. She also has extensive experience in state housing programs, having served as the director of Housing Finance Programs for the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs and as vice president of the Texas State Affordable Housing Corporation. "Colonial National Mortgage is fortunate to hire Pam for this important expansion of the company's footprint in the Austin area," said Holubec. "She is highly regarded among homebuyers, realtors and builders for her expertise in all facets of residential mortgage lending. Her deep experience in underwriting, processing, and sales make her a respected manager to her employees and an asset to Colonial National's six decades of service to Texas homebuyers."
