Brandt Stone Joins AgSouth Farm Credit's Laurens Team
LAURENS, S.C. (April 2, 2019): AgSouth Farm Credit Director of Financially-Related Services Christian Taylor recently announced that Brandt Stone has joined the Laurens office as a mortgage originator.
Stone graduated from the Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina with a B.S. in business administration, with a focus on corporate finance, and a minor in economics. He has seven years of commercial underwriting experience and spent the last year as a mortgage originator in AgSouth’s Anderson, S.C., office. Stone is a member of Fountain Inn First Baptist Church.
Taylor says that Stone will be expanding the company’s mortgage portfolio in the high growth areas in and around Abbeville, Greenville, Greenwood, Laurens and McCormick counties. Says Taylor, "This area is one of the top growing areas in South Carolina. New construction is booming, and we have a construction-to-perm program that fits perfectly with the needs of this market. We see this as a great opportunity to expand our home loan department in South Carolina’s Upstate. We’re happy to welcome Brandt, whose education and experience with AgSouth will make him a valuable addition to our Laurens team."
