NFM Lending opens new Columbus office

NFM Lending has opened a new branch in Columbus, Ohio, and has appointed a mortgage veteran to run the new office.

The Baltimore-based mortgage company said in a release that the branch’s goal is to “continue to provide the same commitment and dedication to borrowers, ranging from first-time homebuyers to seasoned buyers looking for their next home, a second home, or investment properties.”

Todd Novosel (pictured), who brings 20 years of mortgage expertise, was tapped as branch manager. He joined NFM from Guaranteed Rate, where he served as vice president of mortgage lending. Novosel has also spent nearly seven years as a loan officer at PrimeLending, a year as a mortgage consultant at MetLife Home Loans, and almost a decade as a loan officer at Bank of America Home Loans.

NFM Lending founder and CEO David Silverman commented on Novosel’s appointment: “I am ecstatic to have Todd Novosel join our NFM family. Todd is a top originator in Columbus, and his consistency throughout his career is unmatched. We now have the opportunity to help Todd take his business and relationships throughout the Ohio region to the next level.”

“We are all very honored that Todd choose NFM Lending for this next stage of his career. The timing couldn’t be more perfect for him,” said NFM president Jan Ozga.

 “We knew Todd because of his stellar reputation in Columbus, and we’re excited at the opportunity to partner with him. NFM is committed to working alongside him and give him the resources he needs to expand his business and continue his focus on top-notch customer experience.”

“NFM’s reputation in the Columbus area is outstanding,” Novosel said. “For me, it was a move I’ve been thinking about for some time. I’m aligning myself with some of the top originators in the country. This increased visibility will not only come from leveraging local resources but from having the backing of a national lender with strong financials and a consistent track record of great customer service.”
