John Coleman of Trumbull Joins United Bank’s Mortgage Banking Team
Coleman is Part of the Bank’s New Fairfield County Loan Production Office
United Bank of Glastonbury, Connecticut today
announced that John Coleman of Trumbull, Connecticut has joined United Bank as a Private Mortgage Banker helping to cover the Fairfield County market.
Coleman will work with the Bank’s Fairfield County loan production team located on Post Road in Fairfield. This loan production office (LPO) is led by Joe Antonios, Vice President, Private Mortgage Banker. The Fairfield County LPO has helped United Bank (Rockville Bank: a division of United Bank) become more of a statewide mortgage lender in Connecticut beyond just greater New Haven, greater Hartford and eastern Connecticut.
Most recently, Coleman was with Westport Mortgage in lower Fairfield County, holding the title of Sales Assistant and Loan Processor, where he built strong customer relationships and established a reputation for providing superior customer service. Coleman was primarily responsible for assisting borrowers with loan applications, providing guidance as a subject matter expert they could rely on and collecting and processing their mortgage applications.
Coleman is a perfect fit for United’s culture, particularly when it comes to his volunteerism and commitment to the community. Coleman is active with the Trumbull High Booster Club, serving as Chairman of the scholarship committee and the student volunteer committee, and competes in local road races.
Coleman is part of United’s growing mortgage banking team which expanded from just 12 loan officers 18 months ago to more than 30 today. United has been successful in hiring mortgage professionals like Coleman because the Bank offers an attractive mortgage banking platform, can assist its lenders in doing an even better job of servicing their customers and offer quicker turnaround and local decision-making on loans, which has made Rockville Bank, now United Bank, one of the fastest growing mortgage lenders in the region.
The Fairfield County loan production office now has three loan officers who are supported by a sales assistant. The new location increases production capacity with a product mix that works well in this part of the state.
