Gateway Mortgage Group Grows in Austin Texas

TULSA, Okla., June 23, 2014 – Gateway Mortgage Group, a privately held mortgage company offering originations, servicing and correspondent lending, announced its opening of a new Mortgage Center at 7000 Mopac, Suite 475, Austin, Texas 78731.

John Roach has been brought on by Gateway to manage and lead the new Mortgage Center, and has more than 10 years of banking and mortgage experience. Roach has been in Austin for nearly 30 years and, along with his team, will serve mortgage borrowers in Austin, Round Rock, Georgetown, Buda, Kyle, Lakeway, Leander, Cedar Park, Bastrop, Hutto and Pflugerville, Texas.

Roach believes that investing in real estate, refinancing or making the decision to purchase their first home is one of the largest and most important transactions in a mortgage borrower’s life. “Here at Gateway, our team aims to work with each borrower on an individual basis so we can find the right product that fits their unique needs,” he said.

“John’s mortgage experience and knowledge of the Austin market makes him a great fit to lead our new Mortgage Center,” said Frank Bryan, regional vice president at Gateway. “Our goal is to provide borrowers and clients with mortgage expertise they can trust. Gateway’s continued expansion in Texas is possible with strong stewards such as John and we look forward to continuing to serve borrowers in the Austin market.”

Gateway has more than 55 offices in 19 states with 26 of those Mortgage Centers in Texas alone.
