Hyperion Mortgage LLC

Hyperion Bank, which grew through recapitalization in 2018 and expanded into Atlanta as a new market in 2019, continues its growth with the launch of Hyperion Mortgage LLC.
"This hybrid approach, adding a mortgage banker's access to even more mortgage products, gives our customers an even more comprehensive product offering," says Charles B. (Charlie) Crawford Jr., CEO and chairman of Hyperion, who notes that Hyperion Mortgage's first loan originator will be Carol Lynn Upshaw. "Carol Lynn has 25 years of experience in the mortgage industry and has been a Georgia Association of Mortgage Brokers 'Top Gun' for 14 consecutive years," Crawford said.
Initially, Hyperion Mortgage's focus will be in and from the Atlanta market. It is co-located with Hyperion Bank Atlanta, in Piedmont Center in the Buckhead area, Atlanta's financial district. Hyperion Mortgage, a unique joint venture between Hyperion Bank and First Community Mortgage, is designed to offer localized levels of service to complement a breadth of loan products and competitive pricing.
