Veteran mortgage professional Ward Kerlin has rejoined Mortgage Network Inc., one of the largest independent mortgage lenders in the eastern U.S., as a senior loan officer in the company’s Conshohocken, Penn., branch office.
In this position, Kerlin will be responsible for serving borrowers and homeowners throughout the Philadelphia metropolitan area.
Kerlin has more than a decade of mortgage banking experience in the Philadelphia area, most recently serving as a loan originator for a local mortgage banker. Kerlin has also served as a senior loan officer at JP Morgan Chase and as a home mortgage consultant at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. According to the company, he first joined Mortgage Network in 2012.
“We’re delighted to have Ward back on our team,” said Ted Lawler, regional manager at Mortgage Network. “Mortgage professionals with his level of expertise are few and far between.”
“Modest home price increases and low mortgage rates are giving first-time buyers a great shot at the American Dream,” Kerlin says. “At the same time, the mortgage process can seem terrifying without the right assistance. Whether one is thinking about buying or refinancing, working with a trusted mortgage professional can make the process so much easier from start to finish.”
