Movement Mortgage opens on Main St.

Business focuses on speed to get you on the move

BUCKHANNON — Movement Mortgage has moved on to Main Street Buckhannon.

The company is committed to being a movement of change in the mortgage industry, in corporate cultures and in communities, according to the company’s vision statement.

Branch manager Amy Schumacher will be staffing the new Buckhannon office and helping facilitate mortgage loans as quickly as possible.

Movement Mortgage is a faith-based mortgage company,” she said.

“We were started in 2008 by two former realtors so we are very realtor-centric.”

“They just decided that the mortgage industry needed a change, so they started this company. We are one of the top 10 lenders in purchase transactions in the country in a little bit over eight years.

“We close loans very quickly,” she said. “We keep everybody apprised on the progress of our work; we update the realtors and the customers. I think Buckhannon is lucky to have Movement Mortgage here,” she said. “It’s a great company.”

Movement Mortgage strives to move rather quickly with a goal of six-hour upfront underwriting and seven day loan processing, according to information from the company.

Mark Heitman, market leader for Movement Mortgage, was on hand for Thursday’s ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by the Buckhannon-Upshur Chamber of Commerce. 

“We are super excited about having Amy here,” he said. “She knows the community because she has been a member of the community.”

Although Schumacher is the sole staff person at present, future plans call for adding a loan officer and an assistant.

Movement Mortgage is located at 41 East Main St. The phone number is 304-519-4329.
