Nations Lending and Carpenter Realtors Launch Joint Venture called Commitment Mortgage

Commitment Mortgage offers borrowers a full-service homebuying experience

CLEVELAND--()--Nations Lending, a leading full-service national mortgage lender, today announced the launch of Commitment Mortgage, LLC, a joint venture in partnership with Indiana-based Carpenter Realtors. The joint venture aims to improve the homebuying process for clients by offering an end-to-end experience from finding a home to closing a loan.

Commitment Mortgage leverages Carpenter’s 600+ agents across Indiana to assist clients with finding their dream homes and then capitalize on diverse loan offerings that suit all types of buyers.

Indiana-based mortgage industry veteran Erick Cavalcanti will serve as President of the joint venture and oversee its growth. Corey Caster, Executive VP of National Production at Nations Lending, will leverage his past experience running the joint venture channel at NewRez to lead this JV to success.

“We view the launch of this venture as the natural progression of our company’s growth,” said Caster. “Commitment Mortgage is an opportunity for both Nations and Carpenter to bring two strong companies together to create an enhanced experience for our borrowers and employees.”

"We're excited to bring home mortgage services into the mix we offer home buyers across central Indiana,” said Dave Caveness, President of Carpenter Realtors. “For those buyers, the convenience this brings to the process is impactful."

Commitment Mortgage will provide Carpenter clients with access to a strong independent mortgage lender, in-house loan officers, and fast loan assistance to real estate agents. The venture also provides a high-quality experience for borrowers because Commitment retains a high percentage of its mortgage servicing rights, through its parent, Nations Lending. This ensures borrowers will get a consistent, unified experience from the very start of their home search right on through to the application process and monthly payments.
