The Jackson Building on Main Street is now home to Wintrust Mortgage, the first and only mortgage company to establish a walk-in destination in Verrado and the city of Buckeye, Arizona.
“We were intrigued by the growth and enchanted by the charm of Verrado,” Wintrust Region Manager Jens Lovell said. “Our Main Street team feels fortunate to have landed in the heart of this vibrant community with scenic mountain vistas, golf course views and all the amenities of a resort lifestyle.”
In fact, the most recent U.S. Census Bureau report released in May 2020 named Buckeye, Arizona the second-fasting growing city in the U.S., realizing a 7.1% increase in population over 2019.
With historically low interest rates and a national charter in all 50 states, Lovell’s Main Street team is poised to deliver new home loans and refinancing through Wintrust Mortgage, a division of Barrington Bank and Trust Company, N.A. Even more, Wintrust Mortgage can execute correspondent loans through other banks and non-brick and mortar entities.
“Wintrust’s flagship is in Chicago and we have a strong foothold throughout the Midwest,” Lovell said. “We are strategically expanding in the West, as we see a stable housing market and a continuation of favorable interest rates in the refinance sector,” Lovell added. “We are currently seeking experienced loan processors, underwriters and loan officers to join me, Christina Gortarez, Jorge Sandoval and Juli Miranda as part of our Main Street team.”
An institution that continues to thrive through trying times, Wintrust Mortgage originated a record $8 billion in loans in 2020 alone. Lovell attributes their growth to competitive pricing, a wide variety of mortgage products for the first-time homebuyer to the seasoned homeowner, as well as technology and staff to support clients through the process. Wintrust Mortgage is committed to becoming a household name in Arizona, with established branch offices in Verrado, Phoenix, Wickenburg, Scottsdale and future plans for Mesa.
