FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Kansas City, MO (June 3, 2014) – Cornerstone Mortgage, Inc., a privately-held St. Louis based mortgage-banking firm, is proud to announce the opening of their Northland office in Kansas City, Missouri. This is Cornerstone’s 14th location nationwide and 4th location in the Kansas City area as they continue to grow rapidly each year.
The new branch is located at 6300 North Revere Drive, Suite 230 in northern Kansas City, Missouri. It is conveniently accessible from Tom Watson Parkway, near Interstate 29. Two of Cornerstone’s new talented Senior Loan Officers, Ron Schieber and Patrick Weidt, will be working at the Northland location. The addition of these employees will give Cornerstone an even stronger presence in the Kansas City region.
When asked about the Northland office, Chris Scheer stated, “Adding the Northland office gives us a footprint in all three major areas of the Kansas City market including Northland, Lee’s Summit and Overland Park. We believe building a presence in Northland is the key to our success. Our business model has been extremely successful to date and is to structure an office with four to eight of the top professional Loan Officers to serve the area. We don’t want to have the most originators in town, but we do want to have the best originators in town. Northland is a very parochial section of Kansas City so being able to hire such talent and have a great location gives us a strong foothold in the area.”
Cornerstone will look to expand each of its locations in the Kansas City market with the top originators in the region. Cornerstone Mortgage, Inc. will also focus on building the Cornerstone brand in the real estate and builder community. Excellent service at a very aggressive price, done on a consistent basis, is what sets Cornerstone Mortgage, Inc. apart from the competitors in the region.
