Leading national lender opens new Texas branch
DALLAS, Feb. 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Planet Home Lending, a national mortgage lender and servicer, has opened a new branch in Dallas, Texas, as it continues to expand its retail operations nationwide.
The Dallas team will be led by Retail Branch Managers Tim Nolan (NMLS #306851) and Jerry Frye (NMLS #173762) and Assistant Branch Manager Jim Loughborough (NMLS #341573), who run a hands-on team of dedicated mortgage professionals committed to building a relationship-driven, boutique-style business that delivers personalized attention to each and every client.

“The Dallas team has decades of local experience and they are a terrific addition to the Planet family,” said Michael Dubeck, CEO and President of Planet…
