New American Funding
has announced the opening of its newest branch in Columbia, S.C., to provide the community with an array of purchase and refinance loan products. Wonida Welch will lead the market expansion as Branch Manager. A long-time resident of the area, Welch brings more than 25 years of mortgage experience to the community and was recently named to the company’s President’s Council for 2017 due to her high production levels.

Welch will be joined by a team of top-producing Loan Officers, including Craig Johnson and Chris Marr, who are also both on President’s Council. Johnson has received additional recognition as one of the company’s elite Loan Originators in its Top Gun program.
