Primary Residential Mortgage, an independent originator of residential mortgage loans, has opened a new branch in Fayetteville, Georgia.

Primary Residential Mortgage (PRMI) operates branches in 37 states, and the Fayetteville addition means that PRMI now has six branches in Georgia.

Darrell Bingham is the branch manager for the new Fayetteville location. Mr Bingham was previously a loan officer with Southern Crescent Mortgage & Investment Company; a branch manager with Flag Bank; and a realtor with Century 21.

Mr Bingham said: My PRMI branch gives me the opportunity to provide a much wider base of loan programs and services while keeping costs down, and the rates are very competitive. In these times of economic change I will continue to adapt to meet the needs of our community.
