Wells Fargo, Sunshine Unite

Wells Fargo Home Mortgage is teaming up with The Sunshine Group to better meet the needs of customers who are shopping for condominiums in Stamford.

The two organizations signed a marketing agreement that lets Wells Fargo function as the on-site mortgage lending resource for its building at 25 Forest St. in downtown Stamford. Terms of the marketing agreement were not disclosed.

“Finding the right condominium to purchase is one thing. Financing the purchase is the other half of the equation and we wanted a marketing agreement with a company that has deep roots in Connecticut and a proven track record,” said Jessica Rohm, managing director of The Sunshine Group.

Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, the nation’s leading lender to buyers of newly constructed homes, has built a strong business relationship with builders in Connecticut and across the country. Working together with condominium builders and buyers, Wells Fargo strives to help customers get into a new home that is right for them. Whether they are looking to get into a luxury condominium or a scaled-down model that includes luxury touches, new homebuyers are turning to Wells Fargo to make their dream home a reality.

Wells Fargo Home Mortgage’s National Builder Division includes the industry’s only nationwide network of regional builder sales managers who market a line of more than 20 loan programs designed exclusively for buyers of new homes.

For example, one program exclusive to Wells Fargo Home Mortgage is Builder Best, which lets homebuyers lock in rates early in the process so they don’t have to worry about getting hit with higher rates once the home is finished and the loan is ready to close. Borrowers who purchase homes from builders offering the program can protect themselves from financial market fluctuations in interest rates during the extended construction period.

“We’re excited about this marketing opportunity with The Sunshine Group,” said Joyce Trombley, branch sales manager at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. “The customers will enjoy one-stop shopping for all their condominium and mortgage financing needs, and we will have a chance to work with a respected organization like The Sunshine Co.”

The Sunshine Group has marketed some of the most successful condominium properties in the world, including residences at the Time Warner Center and One Beacon Court in Manhattan, N.Y. Established by Louise M. Sunshine in 1986, the company distinguishes itself by its ability to analyze and create value for real estate development companies, financial institutions, real estate investment trusts, opportunity funds and individual purchasers and investors. To date, the group has sold over $9 billion worth of real estate.
