Lani Furrows and Andy Wagner to co-lead branch

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nations Lending, a leading full-service national mortgage lender, has announced the opening of its newest branch in Point Loma, a hot spot in the San Diego area. The company has hired 26-year industry veteran Lani Furrows, and Andy Wagner, as Branch Managers. Furrows and Wagner will report to Regional Manager Mike Towery and oversee growing the branch’s loan volume production.

Furrows joins Nations after serving more than eight years as a Branch Manager at Caliber Home Loans. She has closed over 6,800 loans over the course of her experienced career.

Wagner also comes from Caliber after more than eight years.

“Nations welcomed our creative full service and customer-oriented lending approach,” said Furrows. “Our team’s success stems from personalized goal-setting and consulting we commit to with every client, and we hope to blend the nimbleness and service Nations provides its customers.”
