The Providence office will cater to borrowers throughout Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts. It will be headed by Jesse Kenner, a nine-year mortgage banking veteran who has experience with a range of loan types, including Federal Housing Administration and Veterans Administration loans.
Joining Kenner in the Providence office are sales manager Jonathan Salinger and loan officers Chris Wall, Sally Herreid and Ray Lambert.
"With the local real estate market on the upswing, we are very excited to be launching our first ever Rhode Island branch to help local borrowers take advantage of current home financing opportunities," said Brian Koss, executive vice president of Mortgage Network, in a news release.
Mortgage Network is one of the largest independent mortgage lenders in the Eastern United States. It offers a full range of conventional and nonconventional loans through more than 45 offices in 21 states.
