New Britain, Conn (March 15, 2010) – The McCue Mortgage Company, the largest independently-owned mortgage lender in the state, celebrates 60 years of business this year.

Founded in 1949, this family-owned business has remained headquartered in New Britain since its inception, and today is managed by William J. McCue who took over the company from his late father in 1977. Like the company, the McCue family has lived in New Britain for three generations.

From its early years providing home loans to veteran’s returning to Connecticut from World War II, to some of the first home loans offered through the state’s housing agency, no other mortgage company has a richer history, experience and success in the state than McCue Mortgage.

“Our 60-year anniversary is an opportunity to thank our dedicated staff for their years of putting first time homebuyers in their homes. It is also a time for us to reflect on the stories that come with the hundreds of thousands of McCue Mortgage customers that we have had the pleasure of working with. All of us share in their pride and accomplishment of homeownership. It is what we have built our business on and we look forward to many more years of doing the same”, said William J. McCue, president of McCue Mortgage.

According to statistics recently published by industry researcher the Warren Group, McCue Mortgage ranks first as the leading provider of first-time homebuyer loans by the Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA).

Statewide, McCue Mortgage’s success is being recognized by industry organizations and business partners including CHFA, the State of Connecticut Banking Department, and the Connecticut Association of Realtors. Governor M. Jodi Rell has also recognized the 60-year success with a proclamation honoring the anniversary year.
