Platinum Financial Funding Announces Cleveland Office

Friday, August 16, 2013

Platinum Financial Funding, a leader in mortgage lending, announced the opening of its first office in Bradley County at 3810 Keith Street NW. 

The Cleveland office is Platinum Financial Funding’s sixth office in east Tennessee. Matt Hamilton, a Cleveland native, and Brandon Born, a Ringgold native, established the company in June 2008. Headquartered on Gunbarrel Road in Chattanooga, the company guides residential buyers through the complex home-buying process from start to finish.

“Due to the explosive growth in the Bradley County area, we saw a real opportunity for mortgage lending,” said Mr. Born, president of Platinum Financial Funding. “Our central location on Keith Street is convenient and helps us to readily accommodate future and current homeowners in Bradley and surrounding counties.”

Following a ribbon-cutting ceremony, Platinum Financial Funding will host an open house on Wednesday, Aug. 28 from 10 a.m. to noon to showcase its new office. The community is invited to attend to learn more about available mortgage lending services.

Committed to offering competitive products and rates while providing the best service possible, Platinum Financial Funding helps homeowners navigate the complex home-buying process. The company also works to streamline processes for more efficient service. While the average closing with a bank takes approximately 60 to 90 days, Platinum Financial Funding’s aggressive market strategy typically allows clients to close on properties within 30 days.

Platinum Financial Funding has 30 employees across six locations in Hamilton, Bradley, Rhea and Knox Counties. Licensed in Tennessee and Georgia, company representatives are able to provide loan assistance and refinancing to clients across both states.
