American Security Mortgage’s

Lending By Design

Erin Finnen, Senior Loan Officer, is a graduate of UNC- Chapel Hill with a degree in Communications.  She began her career in Real Estate back in 1998 where she worked as a Real Estate Agent in San Francisco during the Dot Com bubble.  After moving back to North Carolina, she chose to stay home with her Children for five years.  When she decided to go back into the work force , someone approached her about going to the lending side instead of being an agent.  it was a tough decision but she concluded that she should give it a try. 

After 10 years of pounding the pavement and building her team based on providing the best customer service possible, she opened the Charlotte office of Homeside Financial ,  a relatively new mortgage company out of Columbus, Ohio.  Erin prides herself on offering the largest amount of Loan products in the south and pushes her team to “wow” her clients in every transaction.  “We wants our customer’s experience to be very “concierge like” – we are taking the service side to whole other level”  WE truly are a modern mortgage company.  Welcome home!
