Nathan Burch

Senior Vice President

NMLS#: 231804

As a loan officer, I am passionate about helping clients achieve the dream of home ownership. With 20 years of mortgage experience, I have originated mortgage loans and been part of all aspects of running a mortgage company. My background provides my clients with a truly unique and beautifully simple mortgage experience. Since my start in the mortgage business, I have originated loans and been involved in management and ownership for 17 years. My last company McLean Mortgage Corporation, started from an idea and sheet of paper. It grew to over 270 employees and closed over $9 billion in mortgage loans during my leadership. Since leaving McLean Mortgage, my vision was to create a new mortgage company with like-minded partners that can quickly adapt to the ever-changing mortgage business and increase transparency during the loan process for our loan officers, referral partners and listing agents. My business partners at Vellum Mortgage have similar mortgage origination experience as well as management experience and have worked at some of the most well-known and trusted mortgage companies in the area. A home purchase or refinance is one of the most important transactions in most people’s lives, I am always available on your schedule to guide you through this process. I am confident that we will exceed your expectations and guide you easily through this experience. Thank you for your trust, I look forward to not only working with you, but for you.

Celeste Katz

Realtor, Vice President of Residential Sales

License Number: 0225204552

After a successful and rewarding career in TV news and web-based journalism, this Georgetown grad changed gears to focus on real estate, a longtime passion, joining Capital Area Homes in October 2012. Her skill set meshes seamlessly: “Both journalism and real estate require a keen attention to detail, people skills and are deadline-driven,” she notes. Her personal motto -- "Ever Forward" -- extends easily to buyers and sellers. "You have to admire someone who says ‘Yes, I'm willing to bite the bullet, empty my basement and move on,’ or ‘Yup, I'll move out of my comfort zone and into a new community.’" Celeste feels focused buyers and sellers are crucial to successful transactions, as are her own, personally-vetted lenders and title companies. “The ones I recommend are solid gold. Transaction after transaction, they never let me down.” She guides clients through the process required to succeed: determining priorities and timelines, addressing every concern, and negotiating hard, via the wealth of resources, experience and technology afforded by the Capital Area Group’s team approach. “Buying and selling real estate is serious business,” Celeste says. “We’re talking about your largest investment, after all. But that’s not to say we won’t have an awfully good time on our journey together!" “I work with every kind of client: buyers, sellers, those looking at new construction, luxury homes, townhomes, condos, 55+ communities, Boomers, Seniors. I guess my heart is most with First Time Buyers. I still remember what that was like for me — such a milestone — and I’d like to be a part of that for so many people in this area." “Bottom line: I provide overwhelmed buyers and sellers exactly what they need to move on to their next home, their next chapter in life. I provide superb customer service, and I have your back, every step of the way!"
