Ameris Bank Mortgage Banker Ryan Gesser was recognized by the Charleston Home Builders Association as its 2021 Mortgage Loan Officer of the Year.  The award was developed in 1988 by the Charleston Home Builders Association’s Sales and Marketing Council to recognize excellence in the fields of sales, marketing and promotion of new homes. Gesser was recognized at the 33rd Annual PRISM Awards Ceremony in Charleston.

In 2021, Gesser closed $18 million in new construction loans for production builders such as Eastwood, Hunter Quinn and Center Park Homes as well as custom builders such as Fox Creek Homes and Generation Homes. His overall loan production equaled $87.6 million for the year. Gesser was one of the top 10 mortgage bankers at Ameris Bank in 2021 and is a four-time President’s Club winner. 

“Ryan is a dedicated professional who takes great pride in serving his community and his clients,” said Ameris Bank Coastal South Carolina Sales Manager Jason Fralix.

Gesser is actively involved with the Charleston Home Builders Association and their Sales and Marketing Council. He also volunteers for the South Carolina United FC soccer team at events and tournaments, the Berkeley County Animal Shelter, and fills blessing boxes for residents in need in the North Charleston area.
