What a Year! Inlanta’s Highlights of 2016

What a Year! Inlanta’s Highlights of 2016

2016 was an eventful year at Inlanta Mortgage. We accomplished a lot thanks to the amazing employees we have on our team, as well as our valued customers and business partners. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support over the last year. While we look forward to all of the exciting things 2017 has in store for us, we’d like to take a moment to count our many blessings and reflect on our accomplishments from this last year:

 

Awards

In February 2016, Inlanta was named a Top Mortgage Employer by National Mortgage Professional Magazine. Then in June, we were named a Top Workplace by Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Thank you to our employees who voted for us to receive these designations – we could not have done it without you!

Several individuals were recognized for their achievements as well. Nicholas DelTorto (President/CEO), Cindy Laffey (branch partner in Overland Park, KS), and Jim Snyder (branch manager in Pewaukee, WI) were recognized as Mortgage Professional America’s (MPA) Hot 100. Cindy was also recognized as one of MPA’s Elite Women in Mortgage. Jeremy Page, branch manager at our Greenfield, WI branch, was named one of MPA’s Young Guns for a second consecutive year. We also had 4 members of our team recognized at the Wisconsin Mortgage Bankers Association’s (WMBA) Best in Business Awards. Corporate underwriters Andrea Puricelli and Trisha Mulder-Conwell were nominated as Best Underwriter for the Milwaukee Chapter and Northeast Chapter, respectively. Jim Snyder won Best Loan Originator for the Milwaukee Chapter, and Eric Johnson won Best Loan Originator for the Northeast Chapter. Congratulations again to all of our superstars!

 

New LOS

In February, we started the rollout of our new loan origination system, LendingQB. It took several months of preparation leading up to the transition, followed by weeks of training and long hours put in by our LOS Transition team. On top of that, we made this transition during Spring’s high buying season without losing the great service levels and experience our customers are accustomed to. We thank all of our employees for their efforts in making the transition as seamless as possible while keeping our customers our top priority.

 

New Corporate Headquarters

We moved! Our company is growing, and we were starting to outgrow our old space. In August, we moved from Brookfield, Wisconsin to our beautiful new building in Pewaukee, Wisconsin! While we didn’t move far, we now have a much nicer work environment with plenty of room to grow.

 

Philanthropy

We are always looking for ways to give back to our community. In honor of the many friends and colleagues who have cancer, have lost their battle to cancer, or know someone with cancer, we have made it our philanthropic mission to help find a cure. In July, a group of Inlanta employees participated in the Lombardi Walk/Run to Tackle Cancer in Milwaukee. The group asked fellow Inlanta employees, family, and friends to donate to the cause and raised a total of $8,080. They then spent the day at the Henry Maier Festival Park to participate in the Walk/Run. In September, we held a raffle as part of our 12th Annual Sales Conference. We raised $10,440 for the Cancer Research Institute (CRI), an organization that provides funding for lifesaving immunotherapy research. This was the second year we raised money for CRI and we look forward to continuing our work with them.

Further, we wanted to help local families in need during the holidays. Our corporate office and Pewaukee branch participated in Inlanta’s first annual food drive competition. Each team competed to bring in the most food items to become the competition victors. The winning team, our Compliance & Quality Control departments, donated 438 items! In total, we collected 1,671 food items for the Pewaukee Food Pantry.

 

Thanks a Billion – $1 Billion in loan volume

We reached our goal of $1 billion in loan volume! We are so grateful to our employees who have worked hard this year to achieve this goal. We also want to thank all of our customers and business partners for being a part of this milestone. Thanks a Billion!

Inlanta’s Kurt Waltenberger Named Ambassador of the Year

Kurt Waltenberger Ambassador of the Year

Congratulations to Kurt Waltenberger, a mortgage specialist at our Hales Corners, Wisconsin office, who has been honored with the 2015 Ambassador of the Year Award by the Muskego Area Chamber of Commerce. Waltenberger received the award at the Muskego State of the City breakfast on Wednesday, March 2nd. In addition to Ambassador of the Year, the Muskego Area Chamber of Commerce also gave out awards for Volunteer of the Year, and Board Member of the Year, as well as announced scholarship winners and Business of the Year nominees.

According to the Muskego Chamber of Commerce’s website, “The mission of the Ambassador committee is to serve as direct representatives of the Chamber, fostering growth, and goodwill by engaging the business community.” The Ambassador of the Year award is given to one ambassador as recognition for their contributions in the last year.

“I am honored to receive the Ambassador of the Year award. I cherish the friendships I have made and truly appreciate the warm sense of community that being a part of this wonderful organization brings,” said Waltenberger.

Waltenberger joined the Muskego Area Chamber of Commerce to stay involved in his community after the chamber of commerce in his hometown of Wind Lake, Wisconsin disbanded. As he got more involved in the Chamber and became an advocate for his community, he was asked to be a Chamber Ambassador. He subsequently lobbied to expand the Chamber’s footprint to include the Wind Lake area businesses. His idea was welcomed, and he spearheaded the movement to get Wind Lake included with the Chamber. He personally approached his town board to get endorsed and recruited a number of businesses to join the Chamber.  He has attended, helped organize, and sponsored many events in the community, and they are now expanding their community guide distribution to include Wind Lake and Big Bend.

USDA-Award

USDA Platinum Million Dollar USDA Lender Award

USDA Rural Development State Director, Stan Gruszynski, named Inlanta Mortgage as a recipient of the 2013 Platinum Million Dollar USDA Lender Award.

The Award is presented each year to lenders who have partnered with, and made a significant contribution to, supporting Wisconsin rural residents looking to become homeowners through the USDA Guaranteed Rural Housing (GRH) Program.

In fiscal year 2013, Inlanta Mortgage utilized more than $5 million of GRH program funds by financing home purchases to help moderate income families in Wisconsin. More than 3,900 families across Wisconsin were able to purchase a home last year through the GRH loan program, totaling nearly $486.5 million.

“Working with our lending partners across the state, we’ve made a difference to those rural families prepared to realize the responsibility and benefits of owning a home,” said Gruszynski. “The last several years have been challenging for homebuyers in rural communities. By partnering with local lenders we are able to leverage our resources and overcome financial barriers in order to help rural communities move forward.

“We value our partnership with Inlanta Mortgage,” he added, “and commend their achievement and contributions to meeting rural housing goals for Wisconsin.”

USDA Loans Help Rural Families

Inlanta Mortgage is committed to helping meet the needs of rural families across the country. In fact, Inlanta Mortgage Marshfield, Wisconsin Branch Manager, Laura Leonhard, was recognized as the Top USDA Lender in the nation by Scotsman Guide for both 2012 and 2013.

The Million Dollar Lender Award is given at three levels Silver, Gold, and Platinum, based on the total amount of funding utilized by the lender; Silver level disbursed more than $1 million, Gold level disbursed more than $2 million, and Platinum level disbursed more than $5 million during the past year.

About the USDA Loan Program

The GRH program assists homebuyers in obtaining a 30-year fixed rate mortgage without the down payment typically required by conventional lenders and programs. GRH loans are financed through participating lenders, such as banks and credit unions, and are guaranteed by USDA Rural Development. The amount of the mortgage is limited by the applicant’s repayment ability and can be made for up to 100 percent of the appraised value. There are no restrictions on the size or design of the home. Loan closing costs and repairs can often be financed with the home purchase. Eligible areas include rural regions and communities under 20,000 in population, and not part of a larger urban area.

For more information and to check your eligibility for USDA loans, contact a licensed Inlanta Mortgage loan officer near you using our branch locator.

Inlanta Ranked a Top Mortgage Lender Again


Inlanta Mortgage, Wisconsin’s largest independent mortgage lender, has once again been named to the Scotsman Guide’s Top Mortgage Lenders list.

Top Mortgage Lender 2013

The Scotsman Guide’s Top Mortgage Lender list is one of the mortgage industry’s most respected ranking reports. Similar to the Scotsman Guide Top Originators award bestowed upon individual originators, Top Mortgage Lender volume must be verified by a CPA or a company’s chief financial officer. Only verified loan volume from one-to-four unit residential properties within the U.S. was included.

“2013 was a transitional year for mortgage professionals, and a year that required all of us to dramatically change our thinking about the business,” said Inlanta Mortgage President, Nicholas DelTorto. “The robust refinance business enjoyed in the 1st quarter started to decline in the 2nd and 3rd quarters. This caused problems for many companies as they failed recognize the importance of relationships or the referral source of their business until it was almost too late.

“Inlanta has remained focused on the purchase market, our referral sources, and the buyers we serve. Mortgage companies like Inlanta, with operational flexibility and a sales relationship focus, flourished. Our inclusion on the Scotsman Guide Top Mortgage Lender list is a testament to the strength of both our operations support teams and our sales professionals. It is an honor to be recognized.”
