Jenks, Oklahoma-based Gateway Mortgage, a division of Gateway First Bank, has opened a mortgage center in Lampasas to meet increased demand from local communities for home financing. This is the 40th Gateway mortgage center in Texas and brings the company’s footprint to more than 170 mortgage centers across the nation.
“My passion is helping families realize their dreams of homeownership,” says MaKayla Eckert, mortgage sales manager in the new Lampasas location. “It’s extremely fulfilling to work for a supportive team dedicated to strengthening families and communities.”
Gateway funded more than $10 billion in mortgage loans in 2021, assisting nearly 45,000 families with their home financing needs.
“Gateway’s growth and expansion of its footprint to better meet the increasing demand from local communities for home financing is exciting,” says Scott Gesell, CEO. “We remain committed to the families and communities we serve. Our momentum is a testament to our team members’ persistent focus on connecting with people to impact their lives positively.”
Established in 2007, Gateway First Bank operates eight bank branches in Oklahoma and more than 170 mortgage centers in 43 states.
