Strong Mortgage Partnership Forms

W.J. Bradley Mortgage Capital, LLC (W.J. Bradley), a privately held mortgage banking firm, have formed a strategic partnership between its Newport Beach, Calif.-based Emery team and HOM/Sotheby’s International Realty (HOM/Sotheby’s). Under the relationship agreement, the two companies will combine services. Here’s why this matters:

“We were pleased to be selected as a trusted partner by HOM/Sotheby’s – a known leader in luxury real estate here in the Southern California market,” said Ty Kern, Chief Operating Officer of W.J. Bradley’s Emery team. “The integration of our firms’ strengths means we attract like customers and those customers demand the highest quality of service. I’m confident that the synergy between our two cultures will serve to meet this expectation and emphasize our commitment to furthering the value of homeownership in our community.”

“The pace of growth, sales and value of Newport Beach real estate has accelerated exponentially in the past year, and this relationship creates more opportunities through partnering to secure the right type of home financing quickly and efficiently, which is expected in the home purchase process,” said Mike Shapiro, Chairman of HOM/Sotheby’s. “Working with the Emery team, as a lending player that dominates in this market, offers a distinct advantage for both our clients and our agents.”

Founded in 1993 as Emery Financial, the team joined W.J. Bradley in 2012. Based in Newport Beach, with a second location in San Ramon, W.J. Bradley’s Emery team has originated more than 58,000 home loans since its inception, totaling in excess of $21 billion in historic production volume. The Emery team will have up to 10 loan officers dedicated to its partnership with HOM/Sotheby’s.
