DANVERS, MA — March 8, 2017 — Mortgage Network, Inc., one of the largest, privately held independent mortgage companies in the eastern U.S. region, announces that Clint Hammond, branch manager of the Columbia, South Carolina office, was named Mortgage Professional of the Year by the Building Industry Association of Central South Carolina.

This marks the fourth straight year Hammond has received the award, which honors excellence in the housing industry and is based on a candidate’s individual performance over the past year.

Hammond was presented with the award at the 28th annual REGAL (Real Estate’s Greatest Achievers and Leaders) Awards dinner held recently at the Columbia Convention Center. He was also accepted into the group’s “Mortgage Lender Regal Circle,” an accolade reserved for lenders who close more than $1 million in new construction loans. Winners of the REGAL Awards are selected based on several factors, including the number of construction loans sold, their community service record and letters of recommendation.

“I love my team, I love my job, and I have the best and most loyal customers in the world,” Hammond said. “I am very blessed to have won this award four years in a row.”

A certified mortgage planning specialist (CMPS), Hammond has been with Mortgage Network for over 13 years, during which time he has helped hundreds of residents with their mortgage and refinancing needs.

“I enjoy providing customized financial solutions for homeowners and soon-to-be homeowners and teaching them how to build long-term wealth through the proper use of their mortgage as a key piece of their financial planning,” he said. “The median price of a home in the Columbia area is extremely reasonable, and with interest rates still near historic lows, they remain very affordable,” Hammond said.
