Emeryville, Calif.-based ZipRealty has formed a strategic alliance with New American Mortgage, a mortgage bank based in Charlotte, N.C.
As part of this new alliance, New American Mortgage loan officers will be in all ZipRealty company-owned offices in 20 markets nationwide and will be available on-site to service the home financing needs of ZipRealty home buyers.
‘When a real estate agent and mortgage professional work hand-in-hand throughout the transaction, the consumer wins,’ says Lanny Baker, CEO of ZipRealty. ‘New American Mortgage has an agent-centric model and is focused on creating a strong and trusted relationship with the real estate agent first. This side-by-side connection and New American's commitment to industry-leading loan approval turn times will greatly benefit ZipRealty buyers.’
