Movement Mortgage of Charlotte has been named Top Lender for 2013 by the NC Housing Finance Agency for originating $28 million in loans in the Agency’s 10-month-old NC Home Advantage Mortgage™ program.

The NC Home Advantage Mortgage™ program includes down payment assistance at zero interest, and is offered statewide through 78 mortgage companies and banks.
“Movement Mortgage is truly honored to accept the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency’s Top Lender award for 2013,” said company co-owner Casey Crawford. “We fully support the Agency’s mission to ‘create affordable housing opportunities for North Carolinians whose needs are not met by the market.’ We are grateful to the Agency for its partnership and support in striving to bring change.”

Agency Executive Director A. Robert Kucab said, “Movement Mortgage is a great partner. We’re pleased to recognize the service they are providing to home buyers and look forward to their continued success helping families realize the American Dream of home ownership.”

Created in 2008 by Crawford and Toby Harris, Movement Mortgage (formerly New American Mortgage) was named the 2012 and 2013 fastest-growing mortgage bank in the country by Inc. Magazine. Today, the company has over 1,300 employees in more than 280 branches across the U.S.
