Augustine comes to Nations Lending from Guaranteed Rate, where he most recently worked as a vice president of mortgage lending. His day-to-day work earned him a spot on Mortgage Executive Magazine’s Top 1% Mortgage Loan Originator in America list in 2020 and 2021. Before entering the mortgage lending industry in 1993, Augustine earned his Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Northern Illinois University.  

"Our target is to gain massive market share in our community, provide exceptional service, and grow careers in an environment of giving back,” said Augustine. “What drew me to Nations was the company’s focus on striving for excellence to best serve its clients but still maintain that family atmosphere that is so important to me.” 

“Brian is an incredibly valuable addition to our team and his experience and drive will help us grow in this area,” said Corey Caster. “We’re thrilled to welcome him to the team and know he’s capable of leading this branch.”
