CrossCountry Mortgage branches out in Pittsburgh

CrossCountry Mortgage has announced the opening of a new branch in Pittsburgh, expanding the firm’s footprint in the Western Pennsylvania market.

The Brecksville, Ohio-headquartered retail mortgage lender has tapped Kevin Giza to oversee the new flagship branch. Giza brings more than two decades of experience in residential mortgage lending and is a top-producing loan officer. Three mortgage originators will join Giza, with plans to add more members once the branch is already established.

“We have long wanted to expand our service to the people of Pittsburgh, and opening this branch is a great way to kick off 2021,” said Ron Leonhardt, CrossCountry Mortgage CEO. “We are excited to welcome Kevin and his team to CCM. In addition to his tremendous expertise as a loan originator, Kevin is dedicated to the Pittsburgh community. His values align perfectly with ours.”

“I’m thrilled to announce my move to CrossCountry Mortgage, a top 10 lender on the rise,” Giza said. “CCM allows me to offer a wider range of products, more competitive rates, and even better service to my clients and referral partners. Perhaps most important to me, CCM shares my commitment to the community.”
