Veteran loan officer describes local market as ‘exciting’ as more residents have realized they can now afford to buy instead of rent

November 21, 2019 – DANVERS, MA – Mortgage Network, Inc., one of the largest independent mortgage lenders in the eastern U.S., announced Geoff Worrell has joined the company’s Braintree, Massachusetts branch as a loan officer. In his new role, Worrell will help area residents fulfill their home buying or refinancing goals.

Worrell (NMLS #12394) has lived in the Wareham, Massachusetts area since 1994 and has more than 20 years of residential lending experience in southeastern Massachusetts, where he has focused on helping people find the best mortgage financing to fit their needs. Most recently, Worrell was a senior loan officer with Citizens Bank. He has also served as a managing loan officer with Franklin American Mortgage Company and as a senior loan officer at Prospect Mortgage.

“We could not be happier to have Geoff join our team,” said Christopher Lombardo, branch manager of the Braintree office. “He brings a wealth of knowledge and tremendous mortgage industry experience, and he has been a strong presence in our community for decades. He really understands the needs of area homeowners and how to help buyers make the best financial decisions.”

Worrell is actively involved in many local organizations, including Wareham public schools, the Wareham Junior Basketball Association and Youth Soccer, Buzzards Bay Habitat For Humanity, the Tri-County Music Association, and the Tabor Academy, where he currently serves on the board of trustees. Worrell is also involved in the National Education for Assistance Dog Services (NEADS World Class Service Dogs), Massachusetts General Hospital, and the Pan-Mass Challenge, a bike-a-thon that raises money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

“It’s great to be part of the Mortgage Network family,” Worrell said. “The company’s customer service and customer satisfaction levels are unmatched. Plus, my colleagues share my philosophy of educating borrowers, helping them focus on the numbers, and to only consider homes within their range of affordability.”

“It’s truly an exciting time for our local housing market,” Worrell added. “With rents for two-bedroom apartments in our area rising to over $2,000 per month, more people are realizing they are better off buying a home of their own. While homes with reasonable prices are going quickly, there are still many great opportunities for potential homebuyers as long as their expectations are realistic.”

For example, Worrell said, homebuyers need to understand the impact of costs associated with home improvements and maintenance and carefully select the community where they are buying. “A home purchase is a long-term commitment, so it is imperative that buyers first consult with a trusted mortgage professional before beginning their homebuying journey,” he said.
