In an ever-changing market, choosing the right mortgage company to handle your financing is very important.  Located in over 20 cities across 5 states, Home Mortgage of America (HMA) has become a household name. Its sole purpose, since 1978, has been residential mortgage loans. Home Mortgage of America – Dothan was chosen by the public as Dothan Eagle’s Best of the Wiregrass 2012. Their office is located at 3230 Ross Clark Circle, near Verizon Wireless and Tropical Smoothie. They are set apart from other loan offices because everything is done in-house, meaning that the file does not go to the National Office to be checked. Known as the home of the 10-Day closing, Home Mortgage America – Dothan is experience you can trust. After purchasing 500+ spots on 3 digital billboards rotating in the Durden Digital Network, HMA saw an immediate response.

With original Durden artwork and an in-house photoshoot, the Durden Creative Team was able to make HMA – Dothan FAMOUS!
“We have gotten a great response from the digital billboard. Thanks so much for you hard work on it. It looks great!” says Gena Johnson, Branch Manager.
