New loan officer says the Boston area housing market is very competitive

January 22, 2020 –DANVERS, MA – Mortgage Network, Inc., one of the largest independent mortgage lenders in the eastern U.S., announced Ryan Brown has joined the company’s Danvers, Massachusetts branch as a loan officer. In his new role, Brown will help residents in the greater Boston area fulfill their home buying or refinancing goals.

Brown (NMLS #1593347) has more than 20 years of experience in the financial services industry. Most recently, he was a mortgage loan officer with AnnieMac Home Mortgage in Waltham, Massachusetts. Previously, he served as a loan officer with CrossCountry Mortgage. Brown has held various financial accounting roles in both the insurance and financial services industries.

Brown is a native of Stoneham, Massachusetts, where he currently resides. He volunteers his time in local town youth soccer, basketball and lacrosse. He is also a resident member of the Town of Stoneham’s Capital Improvement Advisory Committee, an important part of the local government that he enjoys.

“We’re thrilled to have Ryan join the Danvers office,” said Mortgage Network sales manager Dan Lionetta. “He knows the area and its residents well, which is always helpful in our business. His financial acumen and breadth of expertise give him a strong ability to help clients with a variety of mortgage products.”

“It’s great to join such a tremendous team here at Mortgage Network,” said Brown. “The company has a fantastic reputation with its focus on customer service, and I’m excited to be part of it. I believe my financial services experience gives me a unique outlook on mortgages and how to optimize financing successfully for homeowners and buyers. I look forward to providing area residents with quality service and helping them find the best mortgage programs to meet their financial needs.”

Brown says the combination of improved economic data and market sentiment have led to stability in mortgage rates, which have hovered at historic lows for the last two months. “This stability is welcome news after last year’s interest rate turbulence,” said Brown. “This low mortgage rate environment combined with excellent employment numbers sets the stage for a continued rise in home sales and home prices. This is the perfect time to buy a home or take advantage of the many refinance possibilities.”

Brown added that the greater Boston area remains an extremely competitive market for home buyers. “My advice is to utilize an experienced loan officer you trust to help guide you through the process and not get discouraged,” said Brown. “If you make an offer and it is not accepted, don’t fret. Develop a finance plan that fits your budget, stick to it and make your offers accordingly. Also, getting preapproved at the beginning of the process will let you understand where you stand and the options available to you.”
