“It’s an honor to be ranked as one of the nation’s top mortgage lenders by Scotsman Guide,” said Helmintoller. “Our branch works tirelessly to deliver an outstanding loan experience in the hopes of helping more families here in Alleghany County achieve their dreams of home ownership. I could not be prouder to serve my community as a loan officer.”
