PORT HURON, Mich., August 13, 2009 – Despite the tough economic conditions that face Michigan workers, First Preferred Mortgage Company, a Port Huron, Mich.-based full service residential mortgage bank with additional offices in Bingham Farms and Southfield, today announced that it is looking for a few good men and women to fulfill loan officer positions at its St. Clair County call center.

We believe these candidates will be challenged by this opportunity to put to use their communication, technical and multi-tasking skills.”
First Preferred Mortgage has a seventeen year long presence in St. Clair County. The company has a proven track record of successful call center operations with its Southfield center routinely demonstrating high performing customer service.
