ColumbiaLee Pelham

My Goal:

My Goal is to listen to my clients and find the best mortgage product for their specific needs while remaining easy to contact and always doing what I say.


I graduated from the great Riverside High School in Greer, SC and moved on to the University of South Carolina where I spent another four years. In 2001 I entered the mortgage business working for a small mortgage brokerage in Columbia, SC named Homeowners Union. After two years in the business, myself and two other colleagues opened our own mortgage brokerage named Palmetto Funding Inc in 2003. In 2008 I transitioned to a big banking environment when I started with National City Mortgage. After a little over a year, PNC Bank bought National City Mortgage. I was not with PNC long before I started looking for a better fit and found a great employer/bank with Union Mortgage Group. I have been with Union since September of 2010 and plan to be here for life.

Customer Testimonials:

"My experience with (one of Lee's Competitors) was that I was told I did not qualify for the amount needed to build my home. Lee Pelham, on the other hand, went the extra distance to help me understand what I needed to do and take the necessary steps in order to become qualified. Lee hung in there with me all the way -- most people would have given up on trying to help me overcome my financial hurdles as a single woman. Lee had faith in my ability to make it on my own. I am forever grateful to him for his confidence in me and for all he has done to make a huge difference in my life." - Cynthia D.

"He certainly does what he says. That's rare these days." - Matt E.

"On a scale of one to ten, I would rate the job Lee did for me and my husband on the home we just built at a 10. Thank you for all of your help Lee." - Carol S.
