TULSA, OK – Gateway Mortgage Group, a privately held mortgage company providing conventional, FHA and VA loans through 50 retail branches nationwide, has acquired its largest branch and entered the Omaha market with its newest location at 12020 Shamrock Plaza, Omaha, Neb.
Mortgage industry veteran, Kent Geschwender will lead the newly acquired branch and its staff of eight seasoned loan officers representing more than 120 combined years of lending experience. Geschwender brings more than 25 years experience to his role and most recently was a branch manager with MetLife Home Loans. He has also held the position of branch manager and mortgage origination with First Horizon Home Loans. Originally established in 1989, the Omaha location has a strong local footprint and was previously a part of the MetLife retail branch network. It will continue to serve the greater Omaha area.
Geschwender and his staff chose to join Gateway due to the lender’s hands-on and service-oriented approach to working with borrowers.
“Our business was on the verge of a large transition and we were being pursued by several major lenders across the country. We knew it was important to align ourselves with a lender that shared the same core values we deliver to our borrowers every day,” said Geschwender. “By joining Gateway, we are able to continue to process, underwrite, close and service our loans locally. Gateway’s business principles were a natural fit for us and allow us to enhance our borrowers’ experience through the life of their loan.”
“Gateway continues to seek opportunities to expand its footprint and gain top-tier talent such as Kent and his team. Our business model attracts some of the best originators in the country and we are committed to delivering a platform that supports them in every aspect of their business,” said Kevin Stitt, president of Gateway Mortgage Group. “We are excited about our entry into the Omaha market and we are confident that Kent and his staff are ideal ambassadors for Gateway and will be successful in their efforts.”
