Silverton Mortgage Wins Military Lender Award

OpenClose Customer Silverton Mortgage Wins 2020 ‘Best Military Lender Award’ for Exemplary Service

Mortgage Banker Honored by National Mortgage Professional Magazine

ATLANTA, Ga., Nov. 11, 2020Silverton Mortgage, a nationally recognized mortgage banker, announced that it earned the distinction of Best Military Lender in 2020 from National Mortgage Professional (NMP) magazine for providing exemplary service to active servicemembers and veterans and waiving origination fees on all VA loans as tokens of appreciation for the sacrifice these brave men and women make.

Founded in 1998, Silverton Mortgage is an independent mortgage banker that has always taken giving back to the community and the country’s servicemembers and veterans very seriously. With this focus in mind, they pride themselves on extending brilliant customer service so that borrowing process can not only be more economical, but also next-level easy.

“Every borrower and their experience are top of the list at Silverton, but those who serve regularly risk their lives for our country, are away from their families for extended periods of time, and make numerous sacrifices on so many levels,” said Jason Strain, COO at Silverton Mortgage. “Our goal is to get servicemembers into the homes of their dreams at a reduced cost, provide white glove service treatment, and deliver an overall outstanding and easy lending experience.”

Silverton Mortgage states: The men and women who commit to serve and protect our country are as diverse as America itself. All genders and ethnicities from a variety of economic backgrounds have enlisted in one of the five branches of military. Last year, it was estimated that 18.2 million living veterans have served in at least one war, leaving their friends and family to risk their lives in combat. And here at Silverton, we want to acknowledge that and say thank you in any way we can. Josh Moffitt, president of Silverton Mortgage, says: “Success without sharing is failure.”

Silverton Mortgage encourages active and inactive servicemembers, as well as veterans, to take advantage of their military status for home purchases or refinances. As a way of saying thank you, Silverton’s unique VA Loan Program does not charge any lender fees. To learn more about how Silverton’s VA loans and process visit this page on their website.

We applaud them for their efforts in giving back, as well as significantly elevating the borrower experience with efficient processes, passionate people, superior technology automation, and more.”
