Q&A with Andrea Meador

What made you decide to be a BankSouth Loan Officer?

I decided to follow in my Family’s footsteps, who were involved in Real Estate and Development. Since becoming a Loan Officer in 1982, I have been able to assist over 1000 clients to achieve the American Dream of Home Ownership. I take pride in being able to say that!

What do you enjoy doing on weekends?

I enjoy anything that has to do with water which includes boating, paddle boarding, and swimming. I also enjoy family time and watching my Grandsons play baseball on the weekends. If it’s an outside activity, such as ziplining or even hiking in local parks, my family and I are there. Downtown Woodstock also has an amphitheater that we love to attend summer concerts at. And, on Sundays, I attend His Hands in Woodstock with my church family.

What organizations have you been active in (career-related and nonprofit)?

I am a Local Director with the Cherokee County Association of Realtors. I also volunteer for The Boys and Girls Club and Habitat for Humanity. I am on the committee for the CAOR Golf Committee and The Top Achievers. I was awarded the Affiliate of the Year in 2017, for my services and dedication.

What accomplishments are you most proud of?

An accomplishment I'm most proud of is serving the Mortgage Industry for over 40 years. My passion is to work with first-time homebuyers.

Another accomplishment I'm most proud of is being a Mother of two loving healthy kids that have gifted me with four beautiful grandsons that I will cherish forever and spoil as much as I can.

Mortgage Market Interest Rates

Interest rates for mortgages can vary significantly from one borrower to the next based on the specific details of the transaction. Some of the main factors that affect the interest rate are credit score, down payment or loan-to-value, the type of mortgage, and how long the interest rate is locked.

The information below depicts average rates on a national level. These rates are not specific to BankSouth Mortgage but are provided to give a general idea of where rates are nationally for different loan types. This information is calculated from actual locked rates with customers across 35% of all mortgage transactions nationwide.

This is not a commitment to lend and does not guarantee the availability of any particular product or interest rate. Rates/terms illustrated in the chart may not be available through BankSouth Mortgage. Rates and information in this chart are powered by OBMMI™ (“Optimal Blue Mortgage Market Indices”). The OBMMI™ methodology takes the average rate of all appropriate interest rates locked through the Optimal Blue, LLC (“Optimal Blue”) product and pricing engine (“PPE”) on a given day. No adjustments to the rates that account for buy-up or buy-down decisions made by individuals are performed. These indices leverage data from Optimal Blue PPE lock requests (approximately 35% of all locks nationwide) aggregated daily and updated nightly with the previous day’s locks.

Andrea and her team communicated the whole step of the way, adapted to many changes we had to make, and were always gracious about it. She also looked and found some great rates for me. She held my financial hand the whole way and I feel I got a very good deal in an already difficult market.
