NASHVILLE, Tenn. — One of Primis Mortgage’s finest, Belinda Arender, Primis Mortgage SVP and Regional Market Leader, was recently named the Community Lender of the Year for 2022 by the Nashville Mortgage Bankers Association. 

The prestigious NMBA Community Lender of the Year award is given to the loan officer that shows a passion for community lending and education efforts, and was announced at their annual Awards of Excellence Gala. As a previous recipient of this award, it’s no secret that Arender has a heart for the community that she serves, especially by helping first time homebuyers. She was also recognized as a Platinum Level lender for 2022, where she finished with 286 units with over $91.5 million in total volume.

“Belinda sets the standard here,” Primis Mortgage CEO John Owens said. “Was I surprised when I heard she won the award? Not at all. She deserves it, and her work and contribution to the greater Nashville community speaks for itself. We are very lucky to have Belinda on our team as a leader for everyone to follow, and I cannot wait to see what she accomplishes next.”

Arender joined the Primis Mortgage team as a regional market leader in September 2022 following her stint as a vice president at First Horizon Bank. She’s a highly-respected lender and leader in the industry, and has been for almost 30 years. To connect with Belinda, visit her LinkedIn page.
