Nations Lending, a national mortgage lender, will continue its investment and expansion in Texas with the addition of a new Highland Village branch. The company tapped Clayton Cummings, an industry veteran with both loan officer and branch management experience, to lead the new branch.

A long-time Dallas-Forth Worth resident, Cummings comes to Nations Lending from Academy Mortgage Corporation, where he spent the last eight years serving as a local branch manager. Throughout his tenure, he has been recognized as a top mortgage lender in the area, racking up numerous industry awards, including those honoring top producers.

“Two things really drew me to Nations and made it stand out in this landscape,” Cummings said. “First, the support it offers its branches and loan officers from a marketing standpoint is unparalleled and a rarity within the larger marketplace. But they also jump through hoops to ensure that same amazing level of in-house support also translates externally to our customers. The company really makes it a priority to streamline everything from the application process right on through to underwriting, processing, and closing. They get it done, and they get it done on time.”

Over the last few years, Nations has continued to focus and invest in Texas. In the Dallas-Forth Worth metropolitan area alone, the company now supports branches in Flower Mound, Frisco, Plano, Sulphur Springs, and Dallas proper.

“There’s no question we see great things on the horizon for our Texas branches and the state as a whole,” said Randy Koerner, divisional manager at Nations Lending. “The growth is palpable, as anyone who has spent any time in the Lonestar State is aware. Clay is someone we’re confident in putting at the helm. This is his backyard – he knows the market, the people, and the business.”
