The new Planet Home Lending team in Farmers Branch, Texas, will be managed by branch manager Leland Bessette.
“Planet Home Lending is very well suited to the farmers branch because we provide the loans local consumers need to reach their home ownership goals,” said Michael Dubic, CEO and President of Planet Financial Group, LLC. “This team is particularly skilled at helping first-time and first-generation home buyers.”
Bessette said Planet Home Lending offers several loan products that are popular in the region. The farmers’ branch is a competitive market with most homes receiving many offers. To help position borrowers to buy a home, we work with people wherever they are and according to their circumstances to find a loan that works for them.”
Besides local expertise, Planet Home Lending offers a personal digital mortgage assistant, which consumers can use to apply for a home purchase loan via their mobile device. Borrowers and real estate agents (with the borrower’s permission) can track loan progress 24/7, communicate to ask loan officer questions, and file paperwork electronically to reduce reliance on paper.
Another way Planet Home Lending supports a healthy environment is through a tree planting partnership with the National Forest Foundation. In 2021, the company sponsored the planting of up to 100,000 trees to help restore national forests.
