Branch predicts strong purchase market and continued expansion in the area

January 22, 2018 ─DANVERS, MA –  Mortgage Network Inc., one of the country’s largest independent mortgage lenders, announces that its Waltham branch has hired Jay Hughes, Ron Gardiner, Steve Mix and Erin Sadlier — bringing the office’s total staff to 13.  All four loan officers had previously worked with Mortgage Network and decided to return to the company.

Prior to Mortgage Network, Jay Hughes was a mortgage advisor for PHH Mortgage; Steve Mix worked as a branch manager for Radius Financial Group and VP of Operations Mortgage Options of America; Ron Gardiner and Erin Sadlier were both loan officers for Guaranteed Rate.

“I love our team’s commitment to service,” says Jay Hughes. “It’s the main reason I decided to rejoin the branch. I am happy to be home.”

“We take client service personally,” says Steven Gaziano, branch manager at the Waltham branch. “This is why customers rate us highly on Zillow and Facebook, and why we are a top performing branch at Mortgage Network. Our competition focuses on transactions.  In contrast, we build long-term relationships that start from the first email and continue until the house is paid off.“

“We see a strong purchase market for 2018,” says Fred Allard, sales manager at the Waltham branch. “Rising interest rates will move some buyers off the fence. Getting the team back together gives us a better chance to help more people and continue to grow our office.”

The Waltham branch is planning a first quarter gathering to thank all its partners. For more information, please contact Steve Gaziano at or (781)-642-2002.
