Mike and Jeff Philibin

Mike and Jeff Philibin: Opened 4 Branches in Under 90 Days
Branch Managers, Johnstown, PA
NMLS: 418684, NMLS: 408773

When Pittsburgh-area loan officers and brothers Mike and Jeff Philibin decided to leave “big bank” mortgage last year, they were looking for a company that shared their commitment to first class customer service. The light at the end of their tunnel was PrimeLending. They moved full steam ahead to open 4 branches in less than 90 days and assemble a lineup of elite producers. Mike, Jeff and their team quickly realized they were on the right track – everyone at PrimeLending, from processors and underwriters to closers and corporate supporters, were focused on finding ways to help each customer win. More than a year later, the team is continuing to make headway as Western Pennsylvania’s premier lender one satisfied homeowner at a time.

Chad Thompson

Chad Thompson: Local Expertise and Loads of Options For Your Locals
Production Manager, Spirit Lake, IA
NMLS: 488230

Chad Thompson likes to work hard and play hard. That’s one of the main reasons he decided to settle in Spirit Lake, Iowa, nestled in the heart of Iowa’s Great Lakes region. When it comes to outdoor activities, Iowans in this community have limitless year-around options, from fishing to biking to water sports and more. But their choices for a local mortgage provider were limited to programs offered by a traditional bank. That is until Chad decided to open a PrimeLending branch in 2015, offering the community more choice and guidance from a true home loan expert.

Chad and his team know that in home loans, one size does NOT fit all. From VA loans to FHA programs to conventional products, the challenge isn’t finding one option, but narrowing down several choices to find the best fit for each homeowner.

What makes Chad most proud about his business? Helping first-time homebuyers or borrowers with unique circumstances find a good solution and have the opportunity to plant their own roots in the community he loves.

Senior Loan Originator, Plano, TX
NMLS: 176775

For Julie Howell, balancing a thriving business and two growing kids can feel like lyrics to a classic country-western song. On any given afternoon, Julie may be sending a pre-qualification letter, checking on the status of a closing or working with a local real estate agent — all from the sidelines of her daughter’s cheerleading practice.

PrimeLending’s flexible CRM and LOS system make it easy for her to stay in touch and run her business whether she’s in the branch or on the go. The operational support she receives comes in multiples too — with branch-dedicated loan processors, underwriters and closers to work directly with her customers and help keep her closings ahead of schedule.

What’s his secret to growing production by 30% last year? Offering a refreshing, stress-free alternative to the slow and red-tape-filled experience traditional lenders provide. It’s the right combination of local expertise, diverse products, a fast digital process and personal service that sets his branch apart. Ben has the freedom and flexibility to build his own team, mentor future leaders and pass on his passion for helping his neighbors.
