PrimeLending opened on Amelia Island in 2010. “We are a different type of mortgage company,” says Senior Loan Originator and Branch Manager Eric Corbett. “We are a family- and fun-oriented company.” Eric and the four other lenders who make up the staff of the company all left another banking company to start the local branch of PrimeLending. All have years of experience in the mortgage banking industry. “We all came over at the same time and developed a culture that keeps people working here,” says Eric. “Our company embodies the team spirit, and our customers sense this.”
A Fernandina Beach native, Eric is committed to helping local customers. Eric and the others work to help homebuyers in Nassau County, but Eric says they do work all across the country—anywhere in our “sphere of influence!” Prime Lending wrote $50 million in loans last year in Nassau County and northeast Florida. Eric, who says he and his wife just built their dream home north of Main Beach, formerly served on the board of Micah’s Place as well as the Fernandina Beach High School Foundation; other staff members are involved in local charitable organizations, and the company itself is involved in the Amelia Island Nassau County Association of Realtors.
“We are locals,” Eric says proudly. “My son will graduate Fernandina Beach High School in 2023 as the fourth generation of our family to go there.” PrimeLending is located at 9900 Amelia Island Parkway, Suite 400, and can be reached at (904) 557-9903 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
