HomeBridge Financial Services Inc. continues its midwest growth with a new branch in the Columbus, Ohio, suburb of Westerville. While HomeBridge is one of the faster growing mortgage exclusive lenders in the country, the company is no stranger to providing the high levels of customer service residents expect in what has been called one of the best suburban cities in America. Todd Pennington, an Ohio native and 20-year veteran of the local mortgage industry, will lead HomeBridge’s new Westerville branch.
While HomeBridge offers all of the traditional mortgage products one would expect from a national mortgage lender, it is the company’s leadership in renovation lending, along with its dedication to customer service, which sets it apart from other financial institutions. HomeBridge is the third largest producer of FHA 203(k) mortgage products in the country, due in part to its dedicated Renovation Concierge Service, which supervises the entire process to ensure everything stays on track.
“I chose to join HomeBridge not only because of the company’s dedication to customer service, but also because it has the financial stability that home buyers, Realtors and the local building community need when it comes to residential mortgages,” commented Pennington. “After 20 years in the Ohio mortgage industry, I’m thrilled to be bringing HomeBridge’s way of doing business to the greater Columbus area.”
In addition to its new Westerville branch, HomeBridge’s recent western expansion from its home state of New Jersey has included multiple locations in Pennsylvania, Illinois, Arizona and California. With further growth on the horizon, HomeBridge is also looking to bring additional mortgage industry professionals into the Westerville branch, as well as other locations across the Midwest.
