As we say goodbye to 2012 and hello to 2013; it’s always fun to reflect back on the year that we have had. For not only have we grown as a company over the last year, we have strengthened our partnerships and given back to the community that we so dearly care about.
We kicked off the year with adding a new Member to our Marketing Department, Mary Mercer and opened Team Primary Branches in Worcester, Massachusetts and Cranston, Rhode Island. In February we held our first of many “Update Your Head Shot Events”. Over 100 people took part in these events over the course of the year. It was a great way for them to update their marketing materials and promote their business ensuring a successful year!
At the PRMI National Conference in March, Team Primary received an award for top 10 branches in the United States. We kept going strong throughout the year and were recognized in our own state with the Top Workplaces award for Small Business 2012 by the Hartford Courant and Fox CT1 Media for the second year in a row. We also received a special award as “Top Doers” in which we were up against businesses large and small. That’s right, even the Hartford Courant and Fox 61 knows that when it comes to closing loans fast, Team Primary gets the job done!
As you all know, the local charity Crayons for Cancer is very near and dear to our hearts. We helped this great organization with various events such as our Charity Golf Tournament and our Comedy Night. Thank you to all who came out to help us support this important charity. With your help, Team Primary was able to raise over $6,500 for Crayons for Cancer. We will be presenting Connecticut Children’s Hospital with a check in the New Year along with delivering the toys everyone so generously donated to the Treasure Chest. Thank you for helping to make a difference to those families who so desperately need and appreciate it!
It was a busy year as Team Primary continued to grow. We welcomed, Pat Leighton, our new Operations Manager to ensure the smoothness of the loan process as our volume increased. And increased it did! We opened Branches in Norwich, CT ,Boston, MA, Mashpee, MA, Scarborough, ME & Nashua, NH and even hired our first Loan Officer in Florida.
One of the most exciting new products that Team Primary began to offer in 2012 was that of the Reverse Mortgage lead by Rob Wilson our Reverse Mortgage Manager. Rob now oversees his department that is continuing to grow and offering a great program for seniors over the age of 62 to help them stay in their homes, pay their taxes, etc!
Team Primary wanted to give back on last time before the year was out so we partnered with Little Elves for Little Angels- Connecticut, an organization that helps to bring Christmas joy to less fortunate children in the Connecticut area. We were so proud to be able to sponsor a little girl and help make her Christmas dreams come true!
We hope all our friends and family of Team Primary find health and happiness in the New Year. Remember, we are always here to answer any of your Mortgage questions and help your clients realize their dreams of home ownership in 2013.
Happy New Year,
