A local mortgage officer has been recognized by the N.H. Housing Finance Authority, and the bank she works for was feted, too.

Each year, the Bedford-based finance authority honors lenders and loan originators across the state for helping homebuyers find affordable housing solutions. Christine Greenwood, a mortgage loan officer at Savings Bank of Walpoole, was named an outstanding loan originator for 2018, and the bank was honored as an outstanding participating originator.

“We’d like to congratulate Christine on being recognized by NHHFA,” Mark Bodin, president of Savings Bank of Walpole, said in a statement. “Because of her extensive knowledge about New Hampshire Housing mortgages homeownership programs, their unique features and ways they can benefit potential buyers, she has helped turn homeownership into a reality for many SBW customers. We’re also pleased that the Bank has been recognized by NHHFA as an Outstanding Participating Originator....”

The N.H. Housing Finance Authority is a self-sustaining public corporation, created by state statute in 1981, that finances and supports affording housing, as well as operating rental and homeownership programs geared toward low- and middle-income families.
