Labrada returns to Keys Financial

It's back to the future for Pat Labrada, who recently returned to Keys Financial Corporation as a loan originator.

"I'm delighted to welcome Pat back," said President Ruben Concepcion. "He was with us for eight years prior, but spent the last couple of years trying out the banking side of mortgage lending. He has an extensive knowledge of the business, a loyal following, and is extremely involved in our community. I'm glad to have Pat back home where he belongs."

"The mortgage market continues to change, and I believe the mortgage brokerage model will provide more flexibility and options to meet my clients' needs," Labrada said. "I'm looking forward to the new opportunities this move will provide."
