Branch Manager/Residential Mortgage Loan Originator
With over 26 years of experience in the real estate industry, Erin Merryman’s enthusiasm and passion for helping clients has only grown with time. “Every day I get to assist people in making their dreams come true,” says the Branch Manager and long-time Residential Mortgage Loan Originator at Georgetown Mortgage. “I love going to the closing table with my borrowers and seeing how happy they are when handed the keys to their new home. It’s humbling to know that I have played a part in their dream.”
Merryman works with all types of borrowers in and around the Houston metropolitan area, specializing in first-time homebuyers, conventional loans, construction loans, Bond and DPA (down payment assistance) loans, and FHA and VA loans. She is also one of the few loan officers in the Kingwood area with expertise in FHA 203K renovation loans. Merryman’s vast knowledge of loan programs and industry guidelines consistently puts her in the company’s Top 10 Producers and President’s Club.
Prior to becoming a loan originator, Merryman was an underwriter for FHA, VA, and conventional loans. “Having that background really helps me to understand a borrower’s situation and provide them with the best solution,” she says. Because of this knowledge, Merryman continually has one of the company’s strongest “pull-thru” rates (from application to closing).
With over 100 five-star customer reviews, Merryman is ranked as the No. 1 lender for Kingwood on Zillow. “My motto is to treat everyone like they are family,” she says of her strategy for success, adding that customers appreciate her availability and responsiveness; her many years’ experience; her ability to educate; and her dedication to continue learning and adapting as the industry evolves.
When she’s not working Merryman loves to travel and recently visited Ireland with her daughter. “We love to travel as a family and this marked a huge item off our bucket list,” she says.
