Starting the year off with 2020 vision, University Lending Group celebrates being “the smart choice for mortgages” for Navarre and Santa Rosa County. Ranking as the No. 1 local lender, their success begins with a local team of dedicated mortgage professionals who start each day with determination and gratitude to the community that they serve.
Stacy Wright (NMLS #518604), Jennifer Gomes (NMLS #518603), and Victoria Lombard (NMLS #793374), work tirelessly to meet the needs of those they serve. In fact, in 2019 this dynamic trio provided mortgage loans for 215 local families for $53,376,669! For them, it’s not just a job. It’s a passion to do more to meet the needs of the families they see every day.
Whether military veterans, first-time homebuyers, those with special stories or just those families that have outgrown their homes, the passion to provide the best possible products and service is what has kept University Lending Group ranked as one of the top mortgage lenders on the Emerald Coast as well a top residential local lender for Santa Rosa County for the past eight years (data supplied by Metro Trends).
Building on a solid foundation of community involvement, the University Lending Group Team stays involved, providing support for the Navarre Area Board of Realtors (NABOR) in which ULG was honored to be named the NABOR Affiliate of the Year for 2018. They are also involved in the Navarre Chamber of Commerce, Santa Rosa County Leadership, Navarre High School, NYSA and the military affairs committee.
ULG families are an integral part of local support of the Navarre community, and their lives are intertwined within the entire area. This issue we highlight top processor Tammy Gibson. What a year for Tammy and her family in 2019! Tammy’s son Hunter celebrated his two-year anniversary with the Coast Guard. Hunter serves in Alaska on a buoy tender and is awaiting orders to attend “A” School in North Carolina to become an aviation maintenance technician. This was also stepdad Josh’s job in the Coast Guard.
Speaking of stepdad, Tammy’s stepdaughter Zoey Gibson graduated from Mississippi State with her bachelor’s degree and is currently a special education teacher at Foley Elementary School. But wasting no time, Tammy’s daughter Haley culminated her bachelor’s degree in graphic design at Pensacola State College all while she and husband Kaleb ran their business, Pierce Visuals, in Pensacola, helped plant Upper Room Church on Pensacola Beach and had a beautiful baby girl. According to new grand mom Tammy, “the best thing that happened in our family in 2019 was Isla Ruth Pierce being born!”
With a combined industry experience spanning over 50 years, Stacy, Jennifer and Victoria focus their expertise on assisting our local Veterans with home purchases, refinances and renovation options to meet every need as well as VA specific construction loans. The financing options do not stop with just VA. The Navarre team has a rich tradition of providing home or condo financing for Navarre and its surrounding community leaders, teachers, ministers, snowbirds and everyday families who desire a new home for their family or a vacation spot to enjoy the emerald waters of the gulf coast.
With the assistance of outstanding sales support from Courtney Hatten and Tracey Ragsdale, and an award-winning processing team comprised of Tammy Gibson and Beth Bruenn, the end result is speed, accuracy, competitive rates, low fees and a great homeownership experience! The Navarre team of University Lending Group appreciates your support and hope you will call on them to serve you with your mortgage needs and learn why University Lending Group is “the smart choice for mortgages!”
