Real Estate Mortgage Network Inc. (REMN), has continued its expansion in Southern California with the opening of a new office in Pasadena, Calif. The office will be led by Los Angeles lending industry veteran Tami Murphy, who joins REMN as the company’s latest branch manager. Murphy will report directly to fellow industry veteran, Kevin Hoyt, who joined REMN as the company’s western regional retail manager earlier in April. Murphy is an L.A. area native with more than 25 years of experience in the lending industry. Throughout the course of her career, she has held the role of branch manager at multiple mortgage firms, including Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, and Southern California Savings and Loan. During a period of more than 10 years of service with Countrywide Home Loans, Murphy was ranked fifth in the nation for overall performance. “Tami’s dedication to quality and performance are well known in the industry and attributes which we pride ourselves on at REMN. As a proven leader, Tami is going to make a great addition to our new Pasadena office and help us strengthen REMN’s growing Southern California presence,” said Hoyt. “While the market continues to fluctuate, we’re finding REMN’s commitment to quality and customer service are separating us from the pack in this area. As the region rebounds, we’ll continue to serve the local industry as a trusted resource for home buyers, builders and other real estate professionals.” Real Estate Mortgage Network Inc. (REMN) has made Southern California a top priority in 2011. Earlier this year, the company opened offices in Riverside and Carlsbad, in addition to bringing on Tom Conklin in the role of western division sales manager for their wholesale operations in the region. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Calif., Murphy now makes her home in Arcadia, Calif. In addition to being a dynamic networker within the lending industry, she has raised two grown sons and is an active member of the ASPCA.
