Columbia, MO (PRWEB) October 30, 2012
With mortgage loan volume up 45 percent in third quarter 2012 compared to the same period last year, Landmark Bank has added 13 new lenders and processors to their staff and implemented a new state-of-the-art mortgage origination system to enhance their current customer service levels.
"The fall is one of the biggest times of the year for home purchases," said Mike Lance, Manager of Mortgage Loan Lending at Landmark Bank. "We expect even higher numbers than ever this year, thanks to historically low mortgage loan rates."
Serving 27 communities in Missouri, Texas and Oklahoma, Landmark Bank employs a total of 50 mortgage loan officers and processors. Landmark provides local mortgage loan service for each market it serves. Origination and processing are both handled locally to expedite customer closings and provide a more customer-focused service. Landmark mortgage loan staff has an average tenure of 15 years.
The Landmark Bank new mortgage origination system is the most up-to-date technology available in market. The new system provides more product options to customers, including USDA and other government loans, plus conventional loans, and expedites the loan process for the customer, allowing them to lock in their rate more quickly than before.
