Polaris Home Funding opens branch in Wintersville

WINTERSVILLE -An area branch of Polaris Home Funding Corp. has been open at Suite 6, 500 E. Church St., the Church Street Commons Building.

Jeffrey Aulet and Michael Freshwater have joined forces to offer their clients home loans with the best rates and closing cost along with customer service and speed. They bring a combined 25 years of experience in mortgage lending and are excited to be able to offer their past and new customers a professional mortgage experience.

“Our motto is to close loans at warp speed, in most cases we close them in 25 days or less. We strive to offer the best rates and closing cost in today’s market,” the owners explained. “In addition, we pride ourselves on offering remarkable customer service, by being available on evenings and weekends to answer questions or take new applications. We have consulted with Ric Morgan, a local webmaster, on updating our website to allow customers the convenience of filling out an application at any time and streamlining the mortgage process. Our website was built to be very user friendly and to give customers the ability to research different programs and products available to suit their needs.”

Polaris officials say the branch is a good fit.

“I’ve known Jeff and Mike for many years and I’ve always admired their ability to help people in their community get into great houses and great loans. When Polaris decided to expand its footprint, I approached Jeff with an opportunity to become one of our first branches in the Southeast Ohio market. I was thrilled when they accepted our offer to come aboard and we have been very impressed with the immediate results. In Jeff’s first full month, he was the top individual producer in our company that is 100-plus loan officers strong nationwide. We are excited to see Jeff and Mike grow and expand in the years to come. I believe they have the commitment to their community that will make them the dominant mortgage provider in their market,” said Matt Moubray national sales leader for Polaris.

Tony and Colleen Morelli, owners of Church Street Commons, said they are excited to have Polaris as a tenant.

Aulet and Freshwater said they are looking forward to serving the Tri-State Area.

Polaris offers 100 percent financing programs on home purchases, and is a full-service mortgage lender, offering USDA, FHA, VA and conventional programs.
