Sean Lange

Sean Lange recently joined New Britain-based McCue Mortgage Co. as a mortgage loan officer. Lange will be originating loans for McCue, as well as marketing the company’s extensive line of residential mortgage products. He will be assisting homebuyers in the towns of Shelton, Monroe, Trumbull, Derby, Ansonia, Seymour and Newtown.

Before joining McCue Mortgage, Lange worked as an account manager, where he perfected his customer focus skills. That work included account management positions at ADVO, Innunity Inc. and Copy-Rite Business Systems. Lange was recognized for exceptional customer service, which is critical when successfully managing client accounts. Such skills are also mandatory when working in home financing, especially with first-time homebuyers who typically require more focus than experienced homebuyers.

“Given Sean’s past success serving customers, we feel that he will deliver to our homebuyers the level of service that is expected from a McCue loan officer,” said William McCue, president of McCue Mortgage Co.

Lange lives in Monroe with his wife and two children.

Founded in 1949, McCue Mortgage has a long history of helping Connecticut homebuyers at every level of the financing spectrum, from first-time homebuyer to those refinancing their mortgages. The company caters to the needs of all borrowers, providing conventional, adjustable-rate, jumbo, construction and other loans. McCue Mortgage closes over $600 million in loans annually, making it one of the leading mortgage lenders in Connecticut.
