FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
St. Louis, Missouri (June 16, 2011) – Cornerstone Mortgage, Inc., a privately-held St. Louis based mortgage banking firm has been ranked the 3rd fastest growing privately held company in the St. Louis region by the St. Louis Business Journal.
In addition, for the second year in a row the St. Louis Business Journal named Cornerstone Mortgage the fastest growing mortgage banker in the area.
According to Jim Dean, President of Cornerstone Mortgage, this kind of phenomenal growth in a very unstable economic climate is due in part to hiring and retaining Loan Officers with an average of 15 years of experience and who are licensed at both the state and national level, unlike most bank lending officers. These professionals come to closing with a check for our clients and have eliminated all the complications in the loan process. Mr. Dean also stated that as an independent mortgage banker, we’re not reliant on any other company to originate, fund and service loans. This means we can offer pricing advantages over the larger lenders.
