I want to personally thank all our teammates that make Southeast Mortgage what it is and enables us to deliver best in class service with the most competitive mortgage product offering in the markets we serve. As forecasted, SEM executed its strategic plan achieving a 40.1% growth as compared to last year.
With a record volume in December we continue to be impressed with the calm across all operations units and that we were relatively complete with closings and the calendar by 4PM. By record volume I mean more volume than any month in the history of SEM. This is what is unique about SEM, we execute better as volumes surge which is a testament to the structure and teamwork that makes us best in class.
With interest rates finally on the rise and other economic recovery inputs trending north we will continue the surge experienced in December 2015. All the data we use for forecasting points to an incredible 2016.On behalf of the shareholders of Southeast Mortgage, I would like to thank you for a great 2015 and the happy clients you created that will refer their friends and family and secure our organic growth for many years to come.
Happy New Year 2016…..
Chairman and CEO
Southeast Mortgage of Georgia, Inc.
