2021 Recap & Looking Ahead
Thanks to our clients and partners for making 2021 one of our best years ever! Over the past two years, Method Mortgage has been able to help nearly 1,800 clients with their mortgage needs and support our Community Referral Program with nearly $35,000 donated to local charities during that same time. We have been able to hire additional loan officers and staff to support those efforts and help foster future growth. In fact, as of this email, we now are a company of 20 members all focused on helping our clients find The Smartest Way Home.
2022 will be another banner year here at Method Mortgage. Forecasters are predicting a strong purchase market and predict increased renovation spending this year. We will be focusing our efforts on helping clients purchase their new home or renovate their existing home.

Community Referral Program
We are proud to have the opportunity to support our local communities, charities, schools & nonprofit organizations. In the Spring of 2020, we started the Community Referral Program, and we are excited to continue it throughout 2022 with your help. As you may know, a lot of our business comes from referrals. With each referral we receive, we donate $25 to our quarterly referral partner. In the past, we have partnered with many fantastic organizations, such as The Lovelady Center, Children’s Harbor, The Jimmie Hale Mission, and the Backpack Buddies. Thanks to your referrals during the 2021 4th quarter, we were able to give $2,900 to The Wellhouse, a safe haven for female victims of human trafficking.

For the first quarter of 2022, we are looking forward to helping Jessie’s Place with your continued help and support. For more on our Community Referral Program, read more on our blog by clicking here.
