Miami Lakes, Florida (PRWEB) March 12, 2015
American Bancshares, a privately held residential mortgage lender based in South Florida, announced today that April 2015 marks the 20th anniversary of the firm’s founding. The company funded its first loan in April 1995.
“I want to thank all our employees, partners and especially our customers for helping us get here. We are extremely proud to have served the residential community in the area for two decades. Our service is building on a rich 20-year heritage based on responsible lending, competitive rates and exceptional service,” said the company’s Founder & President, John Cosculluela, CMB.
Once a single-location entity, American Bancshares has since expanded, with eight branch offices located in Dade and Broward counties. Today, the company combines state-of-the-art technology with old-fashioned customer service to streamline the lending process. Customer support and retention are at the core of its business plan, with the ability to adapt to an ever-changing market.
In October 2013, the company was granted approval by the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) to be a Fannie Mae seller-servicer, able to sell loans while retaining its mortgage servicing rights. The company is approved in 13 states, with plans to get approved in more states and open more branches.
American Bancshares continues its long lending history, following a plan of smart, sustained growth. “Following the turbulent mortgage lending years of the recent past, the National Association of Mortgage Brokers saw its membership shrink by nearly two-thirds. Our thriving through this period is a testament to our commitment to serving our clients with commitment, transparency and integrity. I’m proud of our entire organization and our 150 incredible and motivated staff,” added Cosculluela.
