The company that began two decades ago as the mortgage arm of HomeBanc Federal Savings is transitioning into its new status as a publicly traded real estate investment trust.

Atlanta-based HomeBanc Corp. went public July 14, during the same time many mortgage lenders are warning of lay-offs and declining revenues because of the drop off in refinancings.
