Gateway Bank of Central Florida, based in Ocala, announced recently that it has joined forces with Prime Mortgage Group to offer uniquely accessible residential mortgage services to all of its customers throughout its mid-state network.
“Being able to service residential mortgage accounts for customers in-house through our affiliated relationship is unique to the industry,” Raymond Andrews, Prime Mortgage Group’s president, said.
The partnership, said Gateway Bank of Central Florida CEO Thomas Ingram, provides a “prime residential mortgage experience for Gateway customers looking to work with a locally based, highly experienced, in-house team of professionals.”
Gateway Bank operates branches in Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach and Port Orange, with full-service banking, drive-through facilities and ATM access at various Publix supermarkets throughout the region.
Like Gateway Bank, Prime Mortgage Group is also headquartered in Ocala, Florida. The firm provides primary, secondary and investment financing solutions for single-family residential homes.
Prime Mortgage Group offers most conventional, government, jumbo and construction-to permanent mortgage products familiar to many Florida homebuyers, including FHA loans, which are issued by federally qualified lenders certified by the U.S. Federal Housing Authority and practical for first-time home buyers.
Additionally, Prime provides its underwriting and loan closing services in house for enhanced customer convenience.
