Matt Mullin, a mortgage loan originator with Axia Home Loans in Susanville, has passed the qualifying exams to earn the Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist (CMPS) designation granted by the CMPS Institute. “CMPS certification helps me to compare loan options for borrowers in the context of their overall financial situation,” Mullin tells us. “This is especially important to homeowners and buyers in the Susanville area because inventory levels are low and home buyers are prone to making quick decisions without thinking through all the implications.” You can call Cheryl Holmes, Ken Holmes and Matt Mullin at 252-1533, or visit their office across from Walmart on Riverside Drive.
