A 13-year-old Rochester mortgage firm plans to move soon into its own digs after buying a northwest business condo.
The plan is for Premier Mortgage of Rochester to move to 3135 Superior Drive NW in the Badger Village Office Condos in early March, said owner Todd Satre. That's the former home of R!ah Hair Salon.
After leasing space in the Crossroads Shopping Center and in the Highlands on 19th Street since he opened in 2003, Satre said he felt it was time to buy a space of his own for his growing company. Remodeling work began on the 1,500-square-foot space this week.
"As we've grown with the market, we've outgrown the space we're in. It made sense to have more of a professional storefront of our own," he said.
The new space is about double the size of Premier's current offices.
Mike Busch and Scott Hoss, of Rochester's Paramark Real Estate Services, handled the deal.
Satre describes Premier Mortgage as an independent "wholesale mortgage" company, which works with a number of banks to get the best deal possible for its home-buying or refinancing clients.
Premier Mortgage has four employees on staff, but that could change soon.
"We're hoping to add some more loan officers in near future," he said.
