Yesterday we reported on a lender entering the Midwest market for the first time. Today I want to share more lender expansion news with you. In this case, Supreme Lending, a national mortgage banker headquartered in Dallas, Texas, has opened a new branch in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This is Supreme Lending’s first branch in the state. Robert Cenci, who has over 18 years of experience as a mortgage loan originator and sales leader, has been appointed as branch manager for the office. He has hired a team of six mortgage professionals, including one sales manager and three loan originators to work with him in the Philadelphia branch.
The Philadelphia branch was opened as part of Supreme Lending’s growth and expansion plans, and extends the company’s reach in the Northeast U.S.
“Supreme Lending’s growth and longevity are due in large part to hiring the best people and our customer-comes-first approach,” said Supreme Lending’s CEO Scott Everett. “By opening the Philadelphia branch, we’re making it easier for homeowners in Pennsylvania to receive not only competitive rates, but also the highest quality service. We’re so pleased to have Robert and his team representing Supreme in this area.”
Robert Cenci began his career with Washington Mutual in 1996 and has worked in the greater Philadelphia area for the entirety of his career. Prior to joining Supreme Lending, he originated mortgages with organizations that include Bank of America and MetLife Home Loans, and also led a sales team at Caliber Home Loans. He has extensive experience and in-depth knowledge of the full range of mortgage products, including conventional, nonconforming and government loans that include VA and FHA loans.
Cenci cites the support Supreme Lending provides to its branches, as well as the company’s forward approach to using technology as primary reasons for joining the firm.
“Supreme’s policies are based on providing high quality customer care,” said Cenci. “Virtually everything they do, from the marketing and production support we receive from corporate to the company’s continual investment in technology, is focused on making the loan process faster, easier and safer for borrowers. That’s very important because it enables us to provide the quality of service our customers deserve and expect.”
