“The significant growth we have experienced since the beginning of the year is encouraging and reflects our intensified recruiting efforts to ensure we continue supporting the needs of borrowers across the country,” said Mike Hardwick, president of Churchill Mortgage. “Our outlook for the remainder of 2015 is positive; the National Association of Realtors reported that first-time home buyers accounted for nearly 30 percent of U.S. home sales last month and a report from the Mortgage Bankers Association showed that applications for loans to purchase homes increased five percent last week – the highest level since June 2013. This progress is proof that the industry is turning the corner and we’re excited to be a part of it.”
