Lender of the Year: BankSouth Mortgage

In September of 2008, industry phenomenon Kim Nelson founded a mortgage company at the height of a financial crisis, confident she could bring a better option for consumers’ mortgage experience. Beginning with only 10 employees, the company originated loans as a brokerage, primarily utilizing BankSouth as a warehouse line. Through this interaction, Harold Reynolds, CEO of BankSouth, and Kim began to realize the entities both offered each other a complementary partnership with aligned strategic goals, vision, and principals.

In February 2011, BankSouth opened BankSouth Mortgage. Today, Kim Nelson leads the bank’s mortgage company subsidiary with more than 200 employees. Over the past six years, BankSouth and BankSouth Mortgage have worked to provide greater market coverage and comprehensive products and services, building its brand reputation on a promise of mortgage excellence.

BankSouth Mortgage is backed by one of the top performing community banks in the nation and offers premier mortgage services with 10 locations and a wide area network of strategically placed “best in class” loan originators in the southeast.
