Meet Evan

Evan K. Zalios is a mortgage loan originator based in Abington Bank’s North Franklin Street, Holbrook office. He specializes in helping first-time homebuyers understand and navigate the complex world of home financing in order to achieve the American dream of homeownership. As he often says, there’s no “How to Get a Mortgage” class offered in school, so he enjoys helping customers understand how the home financing process works so he can guide them effectively. Evan prides himself on his ability to take ownership of his customers’ individual needs so that he can recommend the best home loan solution possible.

A 6-year mortgage veteran, Evan joined Abington Bank in 2021 from Beeline Loans, where he was an approval loan guide, and before that he was a senior home advisor with Own Up. Evan attended Boston College High School in Dorchester before earning his bachelor’s degree from the University of Massachusetts Boston.  He is an avid sports fan and ideal trivia teammate, as he prides himself on his knowledge of music, movies, and pop culture.
