GSF Mortgage Corporation
has added new branch located in Lakeland, Fla., the GSF Construction Division, to be led by Chad Baker and his team of Mortgage Loan Originators, Brad Edmonson and Lisa Kimsey-Dunham.
Baker has been in the mortgage industry for the past 17 years. After college, he found an opportunity to work in a refi call center to learn more about the industry. In 2001, he transitioned into wholesale lending, and a year later, found an opportunity working with manufactured home builders. Baker is looking forward to launching the construction division at GSF and establishing community relationships with builders.
Edmonson is joining the team as a Loan Originator with more than six year of experience in the industry. He is a Lakeland area native and is looking forward to using his hometown connections to expand the presence of the GSF brand in the central Florida market.
Also joining the Lakeland branch as a Loan Originator is Kimsey-Dunham. Originally a native of Charlotte, N.C., Kimsey-Dunham has more than 15 years of experience in the industry, including time spent in FHA compliance and as a loan originator.
“We’re tremendously excited to be working with Chad Baker and his group in Lakeland, Fla.,” said GSF Mortgage Regional Manager Frank Papaleo. “They bring with them a tremendous amount of experience with new construction products as well as a strong following with builders in the Florida market. We are looking forward to growing the Construction Division within GSF.”
