NEWPORT, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The National Association of Realtors (NAR) is predicting a three percent increase in home prices this year, indicating continued recovery. In response, mortgage lender Embrace Home Loans is ramping up nationwide recruitment efforts across its branch network to support increased demand and growth.
For more than 33 years, Embrace has remained committed to its employees’ growth and success. Part of this success stems from the substantial resources available to its employees, including a Realtor communications kit, customized flyers, email nurture campaigns, co-branded open house materials and a three-year stay-in-touch campaign. Employees are also given their own personal marketing coordinator to help get in front of real estate agents through Lunch & Learn materials, Realtor expos, branch open houses, Realtor campaigns, and more.
Additionally, Embrace focuses heavily on leveraging advanced technology to help employees do more business, more efficiently. The lender’s fully integrated CRM and loan processing system provides employees with loan level data lead management and reporting right at their fingertips. Realizing that communication is key, Embrace’s system allows employees to easily keep their partners informed throughout the loan process with event-based text and email notifications. With Embrace’s custom go-to dashboards, employees have their day-to-day activities, referral partners and the complete workflow from their desktop, keeping the workday simple but effective.
Furthermore, Embrace Home Loans has fine-tuned its processes to ensure superior processing, underwriting and closing. Processing teams guarantee loan reviews within 48 hours and provide regular updates by email and phone on any status changes. Its underwriting teams adhere to a 24-hour review of all purchase submissions and a 48-hour review of purchase conditions, refinance submissions and resubmitted files to underwriting. Underwriters are cross-trained in multiple products, empowered with lending authority and have 10 or more years of industry experience.
“Our passion is simple. We want to help those within our local communities grow both personally and professionally,” said Jeff McGuiness, chief sales officer of Embrace Home Loans. “Embrace is a positive, exciting environment, and a place where new ideas and opportunities are encouraged. We’re committed to providing employees the support they need to succeed here as well as outside the workplace because we believe that business success and personal fulfillment go hand in hand. As the housing market strengthens, we’re encouraged to keep growing our teams.”
Embrace was recently named a 2016 Best Place to Work by Providence Business News for the 11th consecutive year. In addition, Embrace has been ranked among the “50 Best Small & Medium Companies to Work for in America” as specified by the Great Place to Work Institute. This continued recognition speaks to the company’s superior culture as viewed by its own employees. Among the Top 25 of all FHA lenders nationally, the lender is an active member of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), Direct Marketing Association (DMA) and the FNMA Regional Advisory Council. Embrace Home Loans offers competitive pay and benefits designed to attract and retain staff who share a matched commitment to excellence.
