Nations Lending has welcomed Eric Flores (pictured), a retired US army captain and one of Indiana’s top VA originators, to its Fort Wayne team as a senior loan originator.

The 29-year mortgage veteran joined Nations after spending more than a decade as a senior mortgage consultant at Union Home Mortgage. Last year Flores originated more than $23 million in loan volume. He has also served 26 years in the Indiana Army National Guard, making him a go-to advisor for veteran home financing.

“Eric is one of the best lenders in Indiana and a true hero,” said Tim Dowling, Midwest regional manager at Nations Lending. “He’s motivated and dedicated to helping his community, which makes him a natural fit here at Nations Lending.”
