New branch opening reflects company expansion in response to growing needs of Atlanta housing market

First Heritage Mortgage has announced the launch of a new branch in Atlanta, Georgia. The new office (Branch NMLS ID #1761792) is located at 2859 Paces Ferry Road, Suite 480, Atlanta, Georgia 30339. The Atlanta site joins the company’s other Southeast branches located in Raleigh and Wake Forest in North Carolina, as well as an upcoming location in Charleston, South Carolina.

Fairfax, Virginia-based FHM specializes in providing personalized home financing solutions to make homeownership achievable for as many people as possible within the communities it serves. FHM has been ranked one of the Top 100 Mortgage Companies in America by Mortgage Executive Magazine (2017), one of the Top 75 Mortgage Lenders by Scotsman Guide (2013), and one of the Top 100 Best Places to Work by Washington Business Journal (2018). The company originated more than $1 billion of mortgage loans in 2017 and is poised for significant growth in the coming years.

Alex Wish, President at First Heritage Mortgage, said the launch of the Atlanta branch will help address the needs generated by a continued increase in homebuyer, builder, and real estate investor interest in the area.

“The economy in greater Atlanta is thriving, and the local housing market is hot right now,” Wish said. “The new Atlanta branch allows us to bring on more local mortgage experts to help provide customers and business partners alike with the innovative solutions First Heritage Mortgage is known for. We look forward to supporting homeownership and prosperity in the community for years to come.”

The new branch will be led by Senior Vice President and Southeast Area Manager JD Williams (NMLS ID #546661), a 24-year veteran of the Atlanta-area mortgage industry. Williams and his team bring the full suite of FHM loan products to the Atlanta market, including FHA, VA, and Conventional mortgages, construction and renovation loans, programs for first-time homebuyers, a “Lock and Shop” offering, and other long-term interest rate lock programs.
