White Plains, NY (PRWEB) August 31, 2012
Guaranteed Home Mortgage Company, Inc. (Guaranteed, http://www.ghmc.com), a national residential mortgage investment and banking firm, today announced it is opening a new branch in Auburn, Maine. Brendan Fontaine, the new branch manager, offers comprehensive experience both as a mortgage banker and an attorney.
Founded in 1992, Guaranteed has grown rapidly since its inception, and the new branch in Maine represents a continuation of its focus on providing access to a wide range of residential mortgage products including FHA, VA, USDA, conventional and reverse loans. A staff of five will work with Mr. Fontaine, and the branch’s reach will include the entire state of Maine.
Dirk Adams, President of Guaranteed Home Mortgage Company, said, “Our new branch in Auburn represents a commitment to the entire region because it will leverage our presence in 28 states to achieve superior loan rates for local consumers. We especially look forward to benefiting from Brendan’s background in the industry and the following he has built in his years of service to the community.”
Brendan Fontaine added, “Guaranteed represents the gold standard in mortgage companies due to its continuing growth and stability during these turbulent times. Our formula for success is similar: a willingness to adapt our business model for the sake of the customer, always focusing on affordable rates and the widest possible range of products.”
Mr. Fontaine went on to list branch advantages in joining Guaranteed including local autonomy, marketing investments, best-in-class technology and a next-day pay program. Just a few months ago, Guaranteed added 10 new branches, and it has been named in the Inc. 500 list of fastest growing companies in the United States.
Since 2007, Mr. Fontaine has managed and owned his own mortgage branch and has assisted hundreds of residents in Maine and New Hampshire. He will be joined in the move to Guaranteed by his assistant manager, Jennifer Ross. The new branch is currently located at 86 Main Street, Suite 202 in Auburn.
Mr. Fontaine holds a B.S. degree from Ithaca College and a J.D. from UNH School of Law (Franklin Pierce Law Center). He lives in Auburn, Maine with his wife, Faith, and three children, Grace, Hope and Maximus.
