Asian-Americans have contributed to our country in many ways, and our initiative is designed to address some of their unique needs in adapting to our cultural and economic norms.
White Plains, NY (PRWEB) January 17, 2012
Guaranteed Home Mortgage Company, Inc. (Guaranteed, http://www.ghmc.com), a national residential mortgage investment and banking firm, today announced a new initiative to assist Asian-Americans in more easily gaining access to commercial finance and achieving the dream of home ownership.
The initiative includes a sustained outreach effort and the hiring of two mortgage professionals, Steven Ho and Ginny Chin, to interface and provide advice to individuals and entities in targeted communities in the New York metro region. They were chosen for their industry experience, language skills and ties to underserved communities.
David Wind, President of Guaranteed Home Mortgage Company, said, “Asian-Americans have contributed to our country in many ways, and our initiative is designed to address some of their unique needs in adapting to our cultural and economic norms. Steven and Ginny’s background and expertise in the mortgage industry are ideally suited to working with and assisting Asian-Americans achieve the American dream of purchasing and owning one’s own home.”
Wind went on to detail some of their experience. Mr. Ho previously served as a branch manager for a competing mortgage firm, where he supervised and instructed a team of loan originators with his extensive knowledge of various loan products. While there, he achieved a consistent sales volume of $2.5 to $3 million in loan originations.
Ms. Chin has spent nearly 10 years working in the mortgage industry as a loan originator specializing in FHA, conforming and non-conforming refinances and new home purchases. She has prepared customers’ loan packages, interacted with attorneys, and handled the paperwork and coordination necessary to close loans.
Mr. Ho and Ms. Chin will work together to identify needs, prepare campaigns and provide solutions to ensure Asian Americans receive every opportunity to own their own homes, gain access to commercial finance sources and achieve upward social mobility in our society. Guaranteed’s initiative will also go beyond home ownership and commercial finance by encouraging prudent financial planning and lifelong education.
