Embrace Home Loans opens new Franklin, TN Branch.

Embrace Home Loans is pleased to announce the hiring of David Gatheridge, as Manager of their newest retail branch. Gatheridge’s extensive experience includes stints with some of the biggest names in mortgage banking including: Country Wide, Chase Home Loans, Bank of America and US Bank Home Mortgage. Gatheridge’s responsibilities include recruiting, training and managing Embraces’ staff of Loan Officers in addition to personally originating mortgage loans. The branch, which will celebrate its grand opening with two open house events later this month (see below), currently employs five Loan Officers. Gatheridge expects to hire additional Loan Officers, as well as support staff in the coming weeks and months.

When asked what makes Embrace Home Loans different from other direct lenders, Gatheridge explains, “The culture at Embrace is unlike anything I have experienced in the past. The notion in the saying, 'They don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care,' really says it best. These are not just words, but a real approach to working and living that’s put into action each and every day. Combine that altruistic approach with the full range of mortgage products and services and the tightly integrated technology and marketing needed to support it, and you’ve got the Embrace difference. I couldn’t be happier, or more excited to share Embrace Home Loans with all of Tennessee.”

Gatheridge is a member of the Nashville Mortgage Bankers Association, Williamson County Association of Realtors, The Greater Nashville Association of Realtors and the Home Builders Association of Middle Tennessee. He attended Northwestern Bible College in Roseville, Minnesota in the mid-80s while studying Business Management. Passionate about living a life with intention and purpose, and giving back to the community, Gatheridge belongs to the Matthew 25 Ministry who’s projects focus on those most in need.
