- Sunflower Bank N.A. has a branch network in five states and mortgage capabilities in more than 40 states.
According to the entities, the new location reflects a “strategic focus on providing more home loan and banking services to customers in Dallas-Fort Worth” (DFW).
Operating as Sunflower Bank, First National 1870, and Guardian Mortgage, Sunflower Bank N.A. has a branch network in five states and mortgage capabilities in more than 40 states.
While Sunflower Bank entered the Dallas area in 2020, Guardian Mortgage has been in DFW for over 40 years and is a national platform that originates home loans in 43 states. The Jefferson Boulevard office is staffed with three Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) mortgage originators to lead business development in the surrounding South Dallas neighborhoods, the companies said.
“I love that I can engage with local real estate agents and leaders who are invested in the future of the surrounding communities and the homeownership opportunities we are seeking to provide," said Sean Chak, CRA mortgage loan originator at Guardian Mortgage. “This location helps Guardian Mortgage make our great mortgage products available to more homebuyers seeking to realize the dream of homeownership.”
The new office is set to provide a range of mortgage loan products and lending services to the South Dallas community, the companies. According to both Sunflower and Guardian, the location was purposefully chosen to allow each company to centralize efforts and build engagement in South Dallas.
