On The Road Series
For the past 25 years, Mortgage Investors Group (MIG) has been committed to helping Tennesseans fulfill their dreams of homeownership. The company has served more than 81,000 clients in excess of $11.1 billion since co-founders Chuck Tonkin II and Chrissi Rhea opened a modest lending office in Knoxville, Tennessee, in 1989 with five colleagues. Today, with over 275 employees in 20 branch locations from Memphis to the Tri-Cities, MIG is the largest independent provider of single-family residential mortgages in the state of Tennessee.
As the Tennessee Housing Development Agency’s (THDA) top lender for 10 successive years, MIG also enjoys a reputation for delivering unparalleled service to first-time homebuyers. The firm’s experienced mortgage experts take pride in providing personalized service aimed at helping borrowers find the best solution for their home financing needs when they need it. In addition to offering competitive rates and a diversified line of residential mortgage products, including government and conventional loans, MIG houses on-site underwriting, processing and appraisal services and employs state-of-the-art technology to ensure a swift and professional lending experience.
When clients partner with MIG, they benefit from a team of advisers and licensed loan officers with the dedicated resources and support required to close on time, every time. The company has enjoyed steady growth for the past two decades, reaching new markets and closing more than $10 billion in loans during that time. Many of the company’s executives have held leadership positions with the Mortgage Bankers Association at the local, state and national levels.
Throughout its success, MIG hasn’t lost sight of its mission to always do right by their clients, value people like family and give back to the communities that have helped it find success over the years. As a result, MIG has enjoyed lifelong relationships with borrowers, realtors and investors that are based on earned trust and mutual respect.
