INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, Sept. 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Nations Lending, a leading full-service national mortgage lender, today welcomed Christopher Patille as its newest branch manager. Patille will operate out of Newark, Delaware, where he'll continue to grow his production team and serve the area in and around Wilmington.
Patille comes to Nations from Guaranteed Rate, where he served as a producing branch manager and ranked in the top 1 percent in the country for production. Prior to his role at Guaranteed Rate, he spent time at both GSF Mortgage and Allied First Bank. Before entering the mortgage industry, Patille studied business at Pennsylvania State University. He'll report to Kathryn Edelen, Regional Sales Manager at Nations Lending.
"My top priority is the service I provide my borrowers, and Nations Lending offers an infrastructure and environment in line with that priority," said Patille. "From an operations perspective, the company is top class. Loans are underwritten and closed on time, and the support we receive from corporate is second to none."
Over the course of the past ten years, Patille's focus has run the gamut, from adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs) to assisting veterans with the purchases and refi's to offering one-on-one support to first-time homebuyers who may find themselves anxious about the borrowing process. Real, human interaction and supportive consultation is something that he prides himself on, Patille says.
"Chris knows the space, but more importantly he knows people," Edelen said. "His approach is very much aligned with Nations Lending's mantra of 'home loans made human'. With a powerful marketing and operations team supporting him at our Ohio headquarters, I have no doubt he'll thrive here."
Outside of work, Patille spends as much time as he can with his 2-year-old son, Brayden. When they are not at the park or eating ice cream, he enjoys playing softball three nights per week as well as restoring antique cars.
