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 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.”
