Homespire Mortgage expands to new territories amid COVID-19 turmoil

Despite the financial turmoil businesses are experiencing due to the coronavirus pandemic, Homespire Mortgage has announced that it has extended its operations in three states.

The mortgage lender opened new branches in Georgia, Louisiana, and Massachusetts, bringing the number of states in which it is currently available to 34.

“In competitive markets like Georgia, Louisiana, and Massachusetts, it’s so important for borrowers to work with lenders who not only understand the local community but are willing to take the time to guide and ensure they make the best decisions possible when fulfilling their dreams of homeownership," said Michael Rappaport, president of Homespire Mortgage.

Homespire tapped mortgage industry leader Melissa Hill to lead the Atlanta office as a branch manager. Hill will cover the company's operations throughout Georgia and will oversee a team of newly hired loan officers.

In Louisianna, Homespire expanded in two cities, appointing as branch managers 23-year mortgage veteran Katherine Robins in Baton Rouge and Colette Delaney in its Shreveport office. Delaney brings more than 20 years of experience in handling all aspects of the mortgage loan process.

In Massachusetts, the firm hired loan officer Aldryn Tangui to head its Westborough office and its extended area.

“We look forward to supporting our newest teams as we continue to expand Homespire's presence serving clients in these new territories," Rappaport said.
