Churchill Mortgage has announced the opening of its first physical branch in Missouri, located in Kansas City. In the past year, the lender has opened six branches in five states. The newest branch is led by Joanna Redden, who also serves as a home loan specialist with 19 years of industry expertise. Previously, Redden was a senior mortgage professional for First Federal Bank and Security Savings Bank, where she worked closely with borrowers to meet their home buying and refinancing needs. In addition, she was a senior mortgage loan officer with First National Bank of Kansas and as a loan officer with Capital Federal Savings.
Brentwood, Tenn.-based Churchill Mortgage is a respected, established lender within multiple states. The lender prides itself on its consultative approach to lending and strong commitment to local communities. In addition, it is the only lender endorsed by nationally syndicated personal finance radio host and author, Dave Ramsey.
“According to the National Association of Home Builders, builder confidence in January remains at a solid level. This – combined with low mortgage rates and growing demand – paints a positive outlook for homebuyers in 2014,” said Mike Hardwick, president of Churchill Mortgage. “Expanding into Missouri allows us to serve a new population of borrowers and Joanna’s expertise ensures that they have the most direct route to the American dream of homeownership.”
