Bradenton, FL, February 17, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Neal Communities has changed the name of its mortgage company from First Continental Mortgage to State Street Mortgage. The small name change speaks largely and more accurately to the company’s strong commitment to local and home-town service.
State Street Mortgage in Lakewood Ranch, Florida – a joint venture with First Continental Mortgage in Houston, Texas – will continue to be led by Todd Boese. New addition Shannon Cole is actively serving as a loan originator and the company anticipates hiring a processor on board very soon. State Street Mortgage will continue to be more efficient and effective with the buyers as staff and products are added to service the anticipated wider variety of mortgage loans.
“State Street Mortgage is the ideal company for buyers of today and of the future. We’ve designed it as a customer-oriented company that will provide the stellar service that sets us apart,” says Neal Communities’ president, Pat Neal. “State Street is a solid company and we’re proud to have them in the Neal family.”
State Street offers a wide range of services and products for both Neal home buyers and non-Neal home buyers. The company will continue to have access to First Continental Mortgage’s ‘solution center’ – a valuable resource aiding customers with credit solutions. The center advises clients on account management techniques that will boost their credit scores to enable them to qualify. “During these challenging times, the center is able to help many clients with credit issues,” explains Todd Boese, senior loan officer. “We’ve already had buyers successfully utilize the service who are now in their own homes.”
