Cleveland-headquartered Nations Lending has widened its operations in the Southwest by opening a new branch in Albuquerque, NM.
According to its release, the new branch will be headed by industry veteran Matthew Berg (pictured), who brings nearly 14 years of mortgage experience. Berg will lead a team of five loan officers, including Dean Ellison, Heath Riddle, Helen Mirabal, Todd Stracener, and Joy Striyle. Berg’s team originated $137 million in loan volume last year.
“Matt and his team fit perfectly with our culture at Nations,” said Corey Caster, executive vice president of national production at Nations. “Not only are they a strong purchase-focused team, but they take care of their customers and fit the entrepreneurial spirit that our organization represents.”
