CHARLESTON, S.C., July 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ —?35-year-old New Jersey based residential mortgage banker, Princeton Mortgage, has launched a national call center in Charleston, SC.
This latest development comes only months after Princeton Mortgage launched their wholesale division in Pittsburgh, PA in October 2017. With the wholesale division already ahead of projected volume, cornering the consumer direct market was the next logical step.

Princeton Mortgage’s Consumer Direct Division was licensed in June 2018 and has already begun originating loans in a handful of states. Additionally, the company has immediate and aggressive growth plans to obtain national licensing over the next few years.
With cutting-edge technology and a progressive approach to office culture, Princeton’s recruiting team has already hit the ground running. Princeton Mortgage has a training class of Mortgage Loan Originators starting July 9th, 2018 with plans to employ more than 100 people within the next 36 months. Princeton Mortgage hopes to positively contribute to the growing Charleston economy.
