University Lending will make your new year great

As we face the kickoff of 2021, who would have expected at the start of 2020 it would be a year for the history books?

While University Lending Group celebrates being “the smart choice for mortgages” for Navarre and Santa Rosa County, and a ranking as the No. 1 local lender, they do not allow their success to overshadow the challenges seen both locally and throughout our country.

University Lending

This local team of dedicated mortgage professionals continue to pray for the safety and health for all clients, business partners, families and businesses. The Navarre team’s success broke production records for the company in 2020 and they don’t foresee anything stopping that trend in 2021.

The local market is poised for another banner year with extremely low mortgage rates and a high demand for homes in the area due to our amazing lifestyle and the notoriety of being “Florida’s Most Relaxing Place!”  

Stacy Wright (NMLS #518604), Jennifer Gomes (NMLS #518603), and Victoria Lombard (NMLS #793374), work tirelessly to meet the needs of every client whether a purchase, construction or refinance. In 2020, this dynamic trio provided mortgage loans for 405 local families totaling $115,000,000! That is almost double the mortgage volume of 2019! For these ladies, 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 (data supplied by Metro Trends).

ULG families are an integral part of local support of Santa Rosa County and their lives are intertwined within the entire area. The military community is especially near and dear to their hearts where most all associates have military family history in their blood. Two of the newest members for Navarre and Gulf Breeze offices in 2020 are Monica Patton (Gulf Breeze) and Amanda Azar (Navarre) who both fit right in!

Monica is the wife of E6 Don Patton and mom to daughter Izzy. ULG is grateful Tech Sgt Patton relocated Monica and Izzy to the area because Monica is a jewel. Lightening may not strike twice but ULG struck gold with Amanda Azar, the wife of NCO Adam Azar. ULG scooped up Amanda when she, hubby and daughters Scarlett and Mackenzie relocated from Ft Bragg, North Carolina. Both Monica and Amanda have made a huge impact as administrative assistants, and University Lending once again benefits from the talent our armed services bring to the table.

Those loan officers benefiting have a combined industry experience spanning over 50 years!  Stacy, Jennifer, and Victoria focus their expertise on assisting our local Veterans with home purchases, refinances, renovation options to meet every need, as well as Veterans Affairs specific construction loans. The financing options at University Lending Group do not stop with the VA; they also have 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 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!
No wonder University Lending Group is “The Smart Choice for Mortgages!”
