Gateway Mortgage Group, a privately held mortgage company offering originations, servicing and correspondent lending, has announced the opening of a new retail branch in Beaumont, Texas. Local mortgage industry expert Alison Eldridge will oversee and drive growth of the newly acquired Beaumont branch. Eldridge has more than 30 years of experience in the industry and previously owned her own mortgage company in the Beaumont area. She will continue to manage a staff of six seasoned mortgage professionals (The Supreme Mortgage Team) where they will continue to provide high caliber service to the local community and families obtaining home loans.
“It is our goal to provide homeowners with the knowledge necessary to make the best lending decision and choose the best loan product for them,” said Eldridge. “Our mortgage team has been serving the Beaumont area together for 16 years, and we pride ourselves in understanding the needs of our local market. Gateway’s platform and flexibility allows us to enhance the lending experience for our borrowers and referral partners.”
Eldridge was previously president as well as director of the Texas Mortgage Bankers Association and received the National Loan Prospector Service award from the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp in 2002.
“It is imperative to continue acquiring the best talent in the industry to represent Gateway and drive company growth,” said Frank Bryan, regional vice president of Gateway Mortgage Group. “Alison has served the Beaumont area for nearly 20 years, and her expertise and commitment to that community is ideal for our model. The new branch will enable Gateway to continue providing its customers with the right product and the best service across the nation.”
