Mortgage Investors Group Adds Centralized Sales Group
Darrell Bagwell to direct operations to be based in Charlotte, North Carolina
KNOXVILLE, TENN. (July 19, 2019) — Mortgage Investors Group (MIG) is launching a centralized sales group that will be based in Charlotte, North Carolina. The group will complement the company’s recently announced plans of hiring Gary Royal to expand its retail operations outside Tennessee, where it has been a top residential mortgage lender for 30 years.
Industry veteran Darrell Bagwell has joined MIG as Director of Centralized Sales and will build a team to serve the growing market of borrowers across the Southeast who want a streamlined online home loan experience. The division will initially focus on customers in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.
Bagwell has more than 18 years of mortgage sales management experience and has spent most of his career in the Charlotte area.
“MIG’s early adoption of the digital mortgage experience combined with the wisdom that 30 years of being in the business gives you, makes MIG a perfect fit for loan officers who enjoy the direct consumer approach,” Bagwell said.
MIG President and CEO Chrissi Rhea added, “Our priority is to empower our associates to provide a home loan experience that exceeds the expectations of every client we serve. Our team has developed a great process to provide the right information at the right time to make a decision that is properly tailored to the needs of the individual client. Whether our customer interface is online, on the phone or in our office, our focus is to make the client feel right at home.”
Mortgage Investors Group (MIG) is committed to helping families in the Southeast fulfill their dreams of homeownership. Co-founders Chuck Tonkin II and Chrissi Rhea opened a modest lending office in Knoxville, Tennessee, in 1989 with five colleagues. Today, with nearly 400 employees in 27 branch locations, MIG is a leading provider of single-family residential mortgages in the Southeast.
