“Chris knows the space, but more importantly, he knows people,” Edelen said. “His approach is very much aligned with Nations Lending’s mantra of ‘home loans made human’. With a powerful marketing and operations team supporting him at our Ohio headquarters, I have no doubt he’ll thrive here.”

The key arrival also brings experience from GSF Mortgage, Allied First Bank, NewDay USA, Capital One, and ING Direct.

“My top priority is the service I provide my borrowers, and Nations Lending offers an infrastructure and environment in line with that priority,” said Patille. “From an operations perspective, the company is top class. Loans are underwritten and closed on time, and the support we receive from corporate is second to none.”
