Homebridge Financial Services Inc.
has named Andrew Sobers
branch manager for its office in Newton, Mass. Sobers' significant career history in the banking industry, prior to his work in mortgage lending, gives him critical insight into ways he can help his customers with their individual mortgage needs. He chose to join Homebridge because of how its diverse mix of mortgage options, and unique status in the industry, can help his customers succeed in their homeownership goals.
“The limited housing stock in many desirable parts of Massachusetts, especially in the Southshore and Northshore regions of Boston, have many struggling to find homes that they can both afford and actually want to live in,” said Sobers. “There are no one-size-fits-all mortgages, and Homebridge, whether it's through renovation mortgages or another type of loan, offers a superior level of options to the homebuyers in our area.”
In addition to being heralded by the Massachusetts Housing Finance Agency for his commitment to helping residents with modest incomes achieve their homeownership goals, Sobers has also served the board of directors for the community development corporation Urban Edge, as well as chairman of the board of directors for Freedom House.
Sobers is also a national trainer with the non-profit National Community Reinvestment Coalition, training personnel in non-profit organizations how to work with finance, and help those they serve secure affordable housing.
