Waterstone Mortgage Opens New Branch In Tennessee

Waterstone Mortgage has announced the opening of a new branch in Franklin, Tennessee.

The branch will be led by David Gatheridge. He brings more than two decades of mortgage lending and financial services experience to the branch. 

Gatheridge’s past experience includes Branch Manager positions at Novus Home Mortgage and First Community Mortgage, and Sales Manager with loanDepot. He is a Certified Mortgage Advisor.

“[T]he biggest reason I joined was due to the leadership at the top – they are ultra-sensitive and responsive to what we go through at the branch, which is how they drive growth for the organization,” Gatheridge said.

He also noted that Franklin and its surrounding communities are the perfect areas to buy a home.

“Franklin is like a Norman Rockwell painting come to life. You feel as though you have accidentally walked onto a movie set, and you’re about to be kicked out if you mess anything up! The local government has done an excellent job of preserving the history of Franklin since its establishment in 1799. It has a beautiful historic district, great shopping and dining options, and many Fortune 500 companies and even Fortune 100 companies that have relocated their headquarters here.” 

The team at the new branch will offer Waterstone’s Single Loan Close Construction program, no-down-payment medical professional options, and no-down-payment Wealth Building Loans, among more.
