First Office Outside of Austin, Texas Opens to Prepare for Robust Real Estate Investment Market
Austin, Texas—September 7, 2016—In response to the robust real estate market and increased landlord loan originations in Atlanta, Ga., Visio Lending is pleased to announce the opening of their first location outside of their corporate office in Austin, Tex. as well as the hiring of Michael Braswell and Kweillin “KG” Gordon as local Account Executives dedicated to serving residential real estate investors, landlords and brokers in the greater Atlanta area.
“All of our research indicates that residential investing, especially in regard to rental properties, remains hyper-local and fragmented. Investors want to build their small business with a lender right in their backyard,” Jeff Ball, CEO of Visio Lending said. “We chose to open our first satellite office in Atlanta due to the growth in real estate there and the great future we see for building up our client base. We couldn’t be happier to have local team members on the ground who know the ins-and-outs of Atlanta residential real estate.”
Visio offers loans to landlords focused on building rental portfolios. Specializing in landlord finance, Visio is committed to providing landlords with the ultimate borrowing experience. As one of the hottest real estate markets post-recession and with increasing rent prices and new home starts up 8% since last year, Atlanta remains one the best places in the country for landlords. In fact, Visio’s own Residential Real Estate Investor Report named Georgia as number two of the top states for residential real estate investors last year.
“This new venture represents our commitment to the community of landlords in Atlanta, and the residential real estate investment industry as a whole,” Ball said. “We take great care in whom we hire, and both KG and Michael exemplify our values of bringing fast, simple and dependable financing to residential investors as we revolutionize the landlord financing space.”
Michael has more than four years’ experience originating loans and was a top mortgage banker for Chase Bank in Georgia. He comes to Visio from True Serene, and is a graduate of Morehouse College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance. An investor in real estate since 2014, Kweillin joins Visio from Redfin Realty, where he held a position of Associate Real Estate Agent. Kweillin is a graduate from Georgia Southern University and holds an MBA from Troy University at Troy, AL.
The new Visio office is located at 3340 Peachtree Road, N.E., Suite 1010, Atlanta, Georgia 30326, and will be the home base of operations in Atlanta. There will be a Grand Opening on-site on Sept. 20, 2016 at 6:00 p.m.
