Following the opening of its newest branch in Arizona, Nations Lending recently opened a second location in Scottsdale, the company announced Monday.
In addition, Nations Lending said Christine McConnell, an Arizona native and award-winning professional with more than 26 years of lending experience, has joined as lead personal mortgage advisor.
Specializing in an array of loan products — including New Home Construction, Jumbo, Conventional, FHA, and VA loans — McConnell is a proven top producer, including Top 1% Mortgage Originators in Scottsman Guide, Top Women Originators in Scottsman Guide, and a consistent President’s Club Member, Nations Lending said. Before joining Nations, she served more than 10 years as senior mortgage advisor for Homeowners Financial Group.
“Nations is forward-thinking,” McConnell said. “The company has positioned itself for long-term success along with that of its mortgage advisors and their respective teams through strategically generated marketing and product offerings to its team. As a result, I’m better able to assist my clients including builders, realtors and other referral partners in an ever-changing and demanding lending environment.”
“Christine is one of the best mortgage advisors in Arizona,” said Randy Koerner, divisional sales manager for Nations. “She brings an excellent perspective as an Arizona native and really understands the lending needs of her community. We're ready for her to take us to the next level.”
Since its founding in 2003, Nations Lending has become one of the fastest-growing independent lenders in the country, the company said.
