Mid America Mortgage announced that Julas Hollie joined the company as sales director for Mid America’s Correspondent Lending division. In this role, Hollie is responsible for increasing loan acquisitions through strategic marketing and customer outreach.
“One of Mid America’s goals for 2020 was to increase brand recognition and new business opportunities for our correspondent division. Julas Hollie immediately stood out as the person to lead that growth,” said Jeff Bode, Mid America owner and CEO. “Julas is a well-respected industry veteran with a proven track record of success, and his expertise will certainly lend itself to expanding the footprint of Mid America’s correspondent operations, enabling us to capitalize on future opportunities in this channel.”
Hollie brings more than 20 years of mortgage industry experience in account management, risk management, sales and business development to his new role at Mid America, which is based in Addison, Texas. Previously, Hollie served as an account manager for business development at Essent Guaranty, where he doubled the number of active lenders and created $23 million in new business opportunities.
Hollie’s previous employers also include First American Title and Fannie Mae, where he was a principal contributor to the $1 billion affordable lending alliance announced by Arvest Mortgage and Fannie Mae in 2004. Hollie has been a member of the Fort Worth Mortgage Bankers Association executive board for the past three years and served as the president in 2019-2020.
“At this point in my career, who I work with is as important as the job itself. Couple this with a senior management team that had the vision to invest in the next evolution of home finance, as evidenced by its leadership in eNotes, my decision to join Mid America was an easy one,” Hollie said. “Mid America has already put in the work and commitment to create a take-out option for hard-to-place loans, and my goal is to increase awareness of this key capability and demonstrate Mid America’s ability to provide this liquidity alternative consistently and at a competitive price.”
