Kristin Callahan has joined Mortgage Network Inc., one of the largest independent mortgage bankers in the eastern U.S., as a senior loan officer in the company’s Burlington, Mass., branch office.
Callahan, who has 36 years of mortgage banking experience, most recently served as a loan originator for Leader Bank. In her new role at Mortgage Network, she will be responsible for serving the mortgage financing needs of home buyers and homeowners throughout Middlesex and Essex counties.
“Very few mortgage professionals possess the level of skill and experience that Kris brings to the table,” says Jane Stanton, manager of Mortgage Network’s Burlington office. “In particular, her expertise with jumbo loans and first-time buyers will be especially helpful for our clients, given current market conditions.”
According to Callahan, the Massachusetts housing market hasn’t been this strong in years, which is helping both buyers and borrowers looking to refinance.
“Along with low rates, rising home values in Middlesex County are making it easier for homeowners who want to lower their payments or sell and move up,” Callahan says. “More homes for sale also benefits first-time buyers. To truly take advantage of the current market, however, all prospective borrowers should consult with a trusted mortgage advisor to find the best financing that works with their budget.”
