The Mortgage Collaborative, a cooperative of independent mortgage lenders, is now 100 members strong.
The organization reached this major milestone following its winter conference last week in Scottsdale, Ariz.
The cooperative has added about 30 lender members in the last four months, reports Rich Swerbinsky, executive vice president of national sales and strategic alliances.
“Reaching the 100-lender-member milestone is a seminal moment for our network,” Swerbinsky says in a release. “The addition of these companies increases the aggregate origination volume of The Mortgage Collaborative’s lender members to over $150 billion.”
During the conference, the collaborative unveiled its Collaboration Lab, which David G. Kittle, vice chairman and president, refers to as an “intimate relationship-building initiative that focuses on benchmarking and problem-solving, receiving rave reviews from our record number of attendees.”
“The value proposition delivered by Rich and our team is clearly being recognized by our preferred partners and lender members,” Kittle says in the release. “I could not be more proud of the success of the Winter Lender Member Conference and our sustained growth.”
