Prudential Florida Realty announces its “Family of Services Partner,” Florida Home Finance Group, an affiliate of Wells Fargo Home Mortgage (FHFG) was honored with the Wells Fargo Home Mortgage Certificate of Achievement Award last month.
Kenneth Cornelius, FHFG vice president, was presented with the award at the company’s statewide managers meeting last month for achieving the No. 1 position in closed units YTD for 2009.
According to the company, the honor is in recognition of all the loans that the FHFG Home Mortgage Consultants (HMC) have successfully closed for borrowers in the low to moderate income bracket, particularly the first time homebuyer market.
“I accepted this award on behalf of the FHFG HMCs,” said Cornelius. “This also emphasizes the opportunity that exists to help so many of the first time homebuyers that are in the market today. With housing affordability at it’s highest in almost 40-years so Many minority and first time homebuyers thought they missed the opportunity to purchase a home. That opportunity has returned and the buyers are partnering with the FHFG to make it happen.”
