Sun Bancorp (SNBC) has more than doubled the size of its New Jersey home mortgage team by hiring 50 former MetLife (MET) employees for its residential lending division.

The teams will be based in Florham Park, N.J., to serve the central and northern parts of the state and in Turnersville, N.J., to reach customers in southern New Jersey.
