Along with the increase in activity in the housing market, the mortgage banking industry is growing again.
Earlier this week, MortgageOrb reported that the mortgage and non-mortgage loan brokers segment added 19,317 jobs since 2011, representing 30% growth. Currently, about 84,759 people are employed in this segment, according to a study conducted by CareerBuilder and EMSI Research. The study shows the relationship between job growth and improvement in the housing sector.
Brentwood, Tenn.-based Churchill Mortgage is an example of this trend, having recently added 15 industry experts to its roster. The company, which provides conventional, FHA, VA and USDA residential mortgages across 26 states, reports that it has hired more than 45 employees since start of this year.
‘As the housing market gains momentum throughout 2013, we continue to provide the highest level of service with the most qualified industry professionals,’ says Mike Hardwick, president of Churchill Mortgage. ‘These individuals are vital to the success of our efforts as we work to meet the financial needs of borrowers across the country.’
