Prudential Americana Group and Shelter Mortgages will provide residential mortgages in Las Vegas.

Las Vegas, NV, October 01, 2008 --( Prudential Americana Group, the largest real estate company in Las Vegas, has formed a partnership with Shelter Mortgage to provide residential mortgages in Southern Nevada. Shelter Mortgage is a subsidiary of Guaranty Bank, a family-controlled bank with assets of approximately $2 billion. This is the company’s first partnership in the Las Vegas market.

“At a time when many other real estate lenders are either unstable or shutting down altogether, it was important for us to work with a reputable mortgage provider,” said Mark Stark, CEO of Prudential Americana Group. “We are proud to partner with such a well-respected and hardworking company. They spent months researching both our company and the local real estate market before deciding to bring their business to Southern Nevada.”

Shelter Mortgage offers hundreds of real estate loan programs and currently has more than 40 real estate partnerships nationwide. “In this challenging local real estate market, we needed a mortgage company with the expertise and products to service our clients well every time,” said Stark.

“We found Prudential Americana Group to be a perfect partnership in terms of our commitment to the customer as well as our proven records of leadership and results in our businesses,” said Jill Belconis, president of Shelter Mortgage. “Las Vegas homebuyers now have a better choice when selecting their mortgage provider. Our family-controlled company has been helping people with home loans since 1923 and we bring the time-honored values of hard work, great products and world-class service to each and every mortgage.”

Shelter Mortgage has been a leader in joint real estate partnerships since 1984. The federally-chartered bank is on its fourth generation of family leadership and has more than 180 branches operating in Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota and Georgia.
