Chris Horley

23-year industry veteran to head up the company’s newest office

DANVERS, MA – August 8, 2018 – Mortgage Network Inc., one of the largest independent mortgage lenders in the eastern U.S., is pleased to announce that Chris Horley has joined the company as manager of its new Newport, Rhode Island branch office.

Horley (NMLS# 7836) brings to Mortgage Network 23 years of mortgage banking experience in the Rhode Island area. Most recently, Horley served as a senior loan officer for Citizens Bank. He is a lifetime Rhode Island resident and has lived the past three years in Newport. He is an active affiliate member of the Newport County Board of Realtors and the Newport Chamber of Commerce.

“Given his long experience serving borrowers and homeowners in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, Chris is the perfect person to head up our newly established Newport office,” said Jesse Kenner branch manager of the Providence, RI office. “He’s a welcome addition to our team and will be a valuable part of our continued growth and success.” 

“The success and career satisfaction I have achieved in my career as a mortgage loan officer is a direct result of being able to help people achieve the dream of homeownership or to improve their financial situation to create an even better home,” Horley said. “Homeownership is a lifetime experience and I will use my experience and high-touch service to ensure a memorable process. By joining Mortgage Network, I’ll be able to provide the best experience to my customers.”

“The local housing market is extremely competitive, with a limited inventory of homes for sale,” Horley noted. “To stand out from the crowd, prospective buyers need to get preapproved for a mortgage before they go shopping. That way, when they find the home of their dreams, they can make an offer much more quickly than home buyers who were not pre-approved for a mortgage.”
