As the housing market continues to show signs of improvement, Embrace Home Loans, a prominent leader in the mortgage industry, is actively recruiting virtual-office underwriters to support increased demand for home financing. Here’s what they’re doing:
According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the housing market continued to strengthen throughout 2014, noting that delinquency and foreclosure rates fell to their lowest levels in more than six years. In response,Embrace aims to tap location agnostic talent to virtually support its goal of providing individuals and their families with mortgage loans, as well as help banks provide home financing through its Affinity and Assisted outsourced mortgage solutions.
The success of Embrace’s virtual office is reflected in the satisfaction of its current remote team. Michelle Baker, working from her home in Ocoee, Fla., previously worked from the lender’s Maitland, Fla. office, driving 25 miles each way to work. “Not only has it saved me fuel and the wear and tear on my vehicle, I love not having to commute. I find I am actually more productive working from home,” Baker said. In addition, Baker said she was pleased with the training and ongoing support received.
Amongst the Top 25 of all FHA lenders nationally, Embrace is also named among the “50 Best Small & Medium Companies to Work for in America” as specified by the Great Place to Work Institute. Embrace Home Loans serves as an active member of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), Direct Marketing Association (DMA) and the FNMA Regional Advisory Council.Additionally, the lender offers competitive pay and benefits designed to attract and retain staff who share a matched commitment to excellence.
“As the housing market continues to recover, adding talent – the right talent is essential to meeting the growing demand for mortgage solutions,” said Kurt Noyce, President of Embrace Home Loans. “The response that we have seen from our virtual-office concept has been encouraging. We remain committed to helping families across the nation, and we are thrilled to offer this opportunity to the industry’s best and brightest credit professionals across the country.”
With rates remaining low for the foreseeable future, Embrace will continue to recruit to meet the influx of new business.
