About us

Longtime friends Glenn Belt and Mike Zgorski started Meridian Home Mortgage over Thanksgiving weekend in 2001. After working in the mortgage industry for years, they were frustrated with the big bank mentality of poor customer service, hidden fees and a profit-first approach to lending. They thought that they could do better.

Together, Glenn and Mike opened the first Meridian office on Main Street in their hometown of Hampstead in rural Carroll County, MD. From the beginning, they set out to be different. Their goal: to treat every family the way they would like theirs to be treated.

Meridian started as a small business that hired and trained family members and close friends, many of whom still work here today. This foundation is the reason we’ve been able to help thousands of families purchase homes, pay off debt and reduce monthly payments.

Staying True to Our Roots

While our business has expanded services to over 33 states, we still treat every customer like a neighbor. Walk into our offices and you’ll find brothers, daughters and other family members working together. You might even be greeted by the company dog, a bull terrier named Winston.

Although our business has grown out of our original Hampstead office, we have stayed true to our Carroll County roots. Our new office headquarters is located in a cozy Westminster community.

Doing Business the Right Way

We take pride in our upfront approach to lending. We understand that responsible homeowners have unique needs and circumstances. Our Licensed Mortgage Bankers listen, present personalized options and offer sound advice. Our unwavering commitment to communicate has earned us an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and a long trail of happy and loyal customers.

Our people-first approach to lending is the reason we will always be committed to you, not a commission. We stay true to this promise and only employ salaried loan officers. We cultivate a positive and supportive culture in our offices. This is one of the many reasons why Meridian Home Mortgage was named a winner of the Baltimore Business Journal’s Best Places to Work contest in 2017.

Over the years, Meridian Home Mortgage has experienced such tremendous growth and was honored with the 2008 & 2010 Inc. 5000 Award for being one of the fastest-growing and most innovative privately-held companies in America. And this tradition of growth continues. Since 2015, our company has more than doubled in size.
