SAN FRANCISCO--()--LendingHome – one of the nation’s most innovative companies in finance – today announced it is the recipient of four top-tier awards in business, housing, and financial technology.

“To say that we are proud and genuinely humbled by these awards is an understatement,” said Matt Humphrey, co-founder and CEO of LendingHome. “This is our sixth year of lending, and our incredibly talented, hard-working team has had the pleasure of funding more than 24,000 properties while working with nearly 9,000 investors. All of whom are revitalizing the nation’s aging housing stock in the midst of a serious housing crisis. We are honored to come to work every day to help our borrowers and, by extension, home buyers. It doesn’t get any better than this.”
