Q&A with Jerry Fowler

What made you decide on a career with BankSouth Mortgage?

This is actually my second career and I have always been intrigued by the mortgage industry. I have bought and sold a lot of parcels and lots, so I decided I wanted to learn more and really understand the full cycle of the real estate business. My wife got into the business first and I decided to follow her. I have enjoyed it from day one.

What accomplishments are you most proud of?

My goal in this business was to be the top in the industry, the diamond level of the industry which is $50M per year. In 2020, I surpassed that goal and closed more than $125M, which I am very proud of.

What do you like to do on the weekend?

Well I work a lot on the weekends so that my clients get the best service possible. But, when I am not working I enjoy going to the beach.

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.

Information in this chart is for illustrative purposes only and is not intended as an advertisement. 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. Weekends and holidays are excluded. All applicable product types are included unless otherwise specified.

From the beginning Jerry and his staff made our mortgage loan experience a pleasant one. He and his staff were always a phone call away and always answered ALL our questions. He has great communication, very friendly and always made us feel welcome. We were nervous about being out of town home buyers not knowing anyone in the business in GA! Not to worry because we felt as though we had a team of people at BankSouth helping us make our dreams come true! We are from Northern VA and have never had a loan officer attend our closing! Thanks for making us feel like a part of the family! We wish you much continued success with all your endeavors! The Leavitt Family.
