Mid America Mortgage Inc. Owner and Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bode has announced the firm has expanded its operations into Missouri, Iowa and Kansas with its newest branch locations in Kansas City, Mo. and Overland Park, Kan.

“Mid America Mortgage is committed to helping consumers throughout the nation to achieve their homeownership goals,” Bode said. “With our Kansas City branch, we have further extended our reach into the Midwest and look forward to providing borrowers in this area with a wide range of home financing products and a superior level of service.”

Mid America Mortgage recently announced its intent to begin originating eMortgages, which was one of many initiatives that attracted technology-driven Midwest Sales Manager Jeffrey Layne to move his mortgage business and join the company.

“I have to consider where to service my personal clients first," said Layne. "As a loan originator, I love Mid America’s wide range of product offerings and its extremely competitive interest rates. In addition, when the loan is closed, there’s a high probability my customer will ultimately make his or her mortgage payment to my company. That is part of creating lifelong relationships."

In addition, Layne said the responsibility he feels to support his team’s growth in building strong, referral-based partnerships also lead him to move his business to Mid America.

“Mid America Mortgage has been a trusted name in the industry since the 1940s, and we are so very pleased to bring our cornerstone brand to the Kansas and Missouri markets,” said Mid America National Production Manager Donna Wright. “It’s a great time to grow with the right people. Jeff Layne is a great example of who we are looking to grow with, and we’re encouraged to find others of the same mindset who appreciate what we offer mortgage professionals.”

Due to state licensing rules in Missouri, the company will do business as Mid America Lending in that state.
