Q&A with Katie Patronis

What made you decide to be a BankSouth Loan Officer?

Growing up I wanted to be a teacher. As a young adult I worked as a substitute Pre-K teacher and after school mentor to elementary children. I enjoy learning new things and have always had a need to understand the “why” behind things. I truly enjoy sharing knowledge and ideas with others. I feel accomplished when I can positively influence those around me to learn or better themselves. My inclination to help others inspired me to become a mortgage loan officer. I enjoy being able to help break down the mortgage process and make others comfortable with one of the largest purchases of their lifetime.

What do you enjoy doing on the weekends?

In my free time I enjoy a good documentary, spending time with family or just getting out and enjoying nature. Having grown up fishing and boating in the Ogeechee River I still very much enjoy boating and fishing around Georgia’s barrier islands with my husband and children. I also have a love for music and will jump at the chance to see live shows any chance I can. You may even catch me belting a tune or strumming a guitar from time to time if given the opportunity.

What organizations are you active in?

I enjoy being active in the local community each year in different ways. In 2022 I helped organize two fundraising events benefiting Habitat for Humanity of Effingham County and Savannah Chatham Authority for the Homeless.

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.
